Beach Lunch

Stunning seafood but at a price! We experience great grilled shrimps of various types, very simple salads and a lovely white Sangria surrounded by Lisbon's "in" crowd... Great food if a little punchy on price.

Back again, no surprise as this is my favourite place in the world when it comes to location, service, simple food well presented and great atmosphere. To all that moan about it being costly, get over it as it is worth every penny.

Favourite restaurant in Portugal. Amazing fresh seafood. An adults only treat and no need to waste money on the kids. Starters are advise and be cheeky and have some surf and then turf.

In just 7 days we visited Gigi's three times for lunch (it is not open in the evenings). Yes it was that good. Sorry brilliant. But if you want to dine here you NEED to book in advance. Gigi's is located close to the beach at Quinta do Lago. You should be warned that it is on the expensive side... More

Gigi does every thing right, from the food, to the drinks and especially the atmosphere. It's the best seaside dining. The food is fresh and prepared extremely well. Wonderful seafood dishes like shrimps, squids, clams and fish prepared either by grilling or pan fried. Many serve with Gigi's magic sauce which is rich with butter. The service was friendly and...

This restaurant is very expensive. You'll find better options for fresh grilled fish. Not going back. Service is terrible.

Went for lunch - 8 in all, 4 children, 4 adults. Service was appalling. Ordering was chaotic and prices all in kg so you didn't know what the actual price was. It took 70 minutes to get our main course - staff were clearly overwhelmed. Food was tepid when it eventually arrived. Then the real kicker - 320 euros including... More

As a foodie and one who is particularly keen on sea food, I just had to try this place. I was wary of some of the comments on TA around prices but when there did not heed the warnings. Very busy, trendy and unique place with nice atmosphere. The food was good, though no better than elsewhere we had tried.... More
