Gigi's has always been our favourite seafood restaurant in the Algarve. Nothing fancy but the atmosphere is great with top class seafood! Very pricey but worth every penny!

Visited with a group of friends and had preordered the prawn curry. We had a wonderful round table which was very sociable with the size of group. It was the freshest tasting healthiest curry I have ever tasted just brimming with fresh herbs. We thoroughly enjoyed a few bottles of rose with it! Staff were friendly and welcoming enough but...

Gigi's is a wooden shack overlooking a marshy lagoon with views of a golf course and large houses in the distance. The seats are wooden picnic benches. We booked a table of four for lunch. No menu, the fish is priced per kg, most at around €80, so we knew it would be expensive. We choose a bream for two,... More

I didn't like the way that you had to order the fish- I was there with a friend and we had to both want the same thing. I would have loved if they had de-boned it for us but the girl we had was flighty and wouldn't. The man who served the next table did so though. Coiffed golf widows... More

What a place! Such a good food, loved it. You can then go just over the dune and you are on the beach and then come back for another glass or even the second serving. A must!!

Thought we had to try Gigi's because it is "the" place to go. There is no sea view, the vitrine with the fish selection needed to be cleaned up and the unfriendly arrogant staff made us decide to leave.
