It certainly was crowded on the Sat afternoon we arrived. We were sat quickly and watched some very good looking food being delivered around us. Our glum and unenthusiastic waiter might just have been promoted from dishwasher against his will. No offer of coverts, bread, water...anything...we just waited for mains. Sardines were quite good and good value, the Frango Gigi... More

We are returning customers (since 2009) and Gigi is a rare restaurant where we're not sorry to wait for a table when all tables are full. The only problem I always have is how not to order the grilled sea bream ''dourada grelhada'' every time :) Other dishes are also insanely good and plantiful (such as Gigi's sea food cataplana...

Plenty of good fish options, non-fish dish was average at best. Smoking in this restaurant was off-putting.

This restaurant is on a strip with many others but we were very happy that we made this choice. Our seafood meal was delicious and well served. Our waiter was very entertaining and efficient. We ate early but the restaurant became very busy as the evening wore on. Obviously popular for a good reason--the food.

Take time to enjoy this restaurants menu . We had shellfish and rice for two. Just gastronomical delicious excellent service. The entradas and bean dip was brilliant. Don't miss out on this Sagres gem. Treat yourself here if your going less expensive with accommodation. Spend the savings on this Gigi's restaurant.

When we asked the waiter to describe the fish cataplana, he just said "It's the best thing you will ever have tasted". It was cooked to order and served with pride. He was nearly right - hard to say the BEST, but close! The restaurant is situated on a busy road, and is rather unpretentious and basic in design, bur... More
