Loud music, great beach location, fun service if a little manic and crazy people. Slightly older generation as it's that spenny! Go for it, leave the kids at home or with sitter and splurge, it's a special boozy lunch treat, and you're on holidays!

Let us start by accepting that a visit to Gigi's has become a must do, driven by a combination of superb fresh fish and atmosphere which overcome the frankly absurd prices. Would I go again, of course I go every year - the fish is second to none, fresh beyond compare. Drinks are reasonably priced but the price of fish... More

Had actually found reviews of this restaurant before going and we all had a good laugh at one woman saying that it 'seemed a little pricey'. Understatement of the century. Four of us went into what we thought, by the shabby look of it, was a cheap cafe for lunch on the beach. After sitting down and realising where we... More

Good quality of the food, limited menu to what is available to the restaurant. The staff is very relaxed and inefficient. The restaurant is thriving simply due to the lack of the competition. This place makes you realise how limited choices are in Portugal. The food is average, and prices are not reflective of the quality. Extremely overpriced. Its location... More

Once we figured out the ordering process we proceeded to have the best meal of our life. The freshest and tastiest fish ever. The whole sea bass fell off the bone and was as moist and tasty as any fish I have eaten. Perfect for a group . The only thing keeping this being a 5 star rating is the... More

I went here with my husband for lunch after a morning on the beach. I had seabass and he had stone bass. The fish was super fresh, straight from the market, and perfectly cooked. However, it was nearly €90 for lunch for the two of us; no starters, no wine, just water and Diet Coke.

Loved this restaurant - the most inviting fresh fish/seafood desk located literally on the beach made me feel the fish was cought just there, just then. Atmosphere is authentic and you Get a feeling the restaurant is ran by a local family. The fish is charmingly bbq'ed downstairs on the beach and it is served in the most delicate way.... More
