“Nah, not great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

We got this place recommened from another guest at our hotel so we went. He said we should try the pizzas, so I ordered one, but the waiter told me that they were having issues with the oven, so it would take over an hour to make.... Therefor I ordered pasta... But:
My pasta was cold when I got it, and not that great. My friends soups and sandwiches was not great either!
+side: They have FREE WIFI :)

“Great grilled seafood!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

The service is very, very slow but the food is delicious. Our favorite dishes were the freshly grilled seafood options. The mango and banana shakes were outstanding and fresh! It took a very long time to receive our drinks and food.

“For the area a good choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

Giddy's is located in town, which means in the middle of a depressed area, away from the other resorts. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the food is better than a lot of the other choices. My shrimp in chillis was uninspired, but the halo halo was terrific. I went at night, and frankly, was a little creeped out by the neighbourhood and the men with nothing to do but stare inside. Service was excellent. There is free wifi but no computer to rent.

“Food just okay, but free wifi is great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012 via mobile

Went here for lunch and they food was just okay (club sandwich and a pasta), but they have free wifi (which is hard to come by in donsol), and a bunch of good magazines to read. The drinks like the mango shake are great.
