“Good service but awful food.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We popped in here for a late breakfast as it seemed quiet appealing. We were greeted by a guy who was very welcoming. We both ordered the jumbo breakfast. However when the breakfast arrived the sausages were terribly undercooked. Bright pink in the middle and mostly pink on the outside also. There was not a chance we were going to eat them! Other parts of the breakfast were fair except the eggs which were like charcoal on the bottom. Probably a place for a drink on a night time rather than food. Friendly service let down by food.

“Great place to visit at Yumbo centre in Playa del Ingles.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

Set in a relaxed and comfortable environment Gio bar offers everyone who visits it at the Yumbo centre the opportunity of sampling its broad selection of meals from its restaurant menu. As well as offering a wide choice of coffees, drinks and cocktails, prices are reasonable and the portions are filling.

“Very friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Very friendly and attentive, the waiter during the day got to know us and always knew what we wanted, service was good, the pizza is excellent and always hot and fresh, we did eat there one night but felt the food was a little lacking of any flavour, enjoyable but not of a high standard.
Worth a visit and you can sit there all day and people watch, one of the few places in the Yumbo open during the day.

“Great seat for the side show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We went in here late in the evening and had some really nice food. I got the biggest pizza that I have ever been served and my wife got the salmon salad. Unfortunately the salmon was of the smoked and raw type which did not suit her. The food was ok, but the highlight was a tumbling act at the crossroads outside the restaurant and later followed by a guy who mimicked people as they walked by. He was great and he had everybody in stitches at his act. Next week should be great here as the gay pride dancers are practicing most nights.
