“Triumphant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

What a hidden gem in such a beautiful location. Very busy and deservedly so. It was due to close for winter the day we visited so we were lucky not to have missed out on this culinary extravaganza! Breathtaking views and amazing food! Not to be missed!

“Excellent food, very expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

The fish at Gigi's is fantastic but very expensive even for Quinta do Lago. Had wonderful giant prawn as a starter followed by the freshest sea bass. The house white is surprisingly good value and very drinkable

“Our perfect restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

We like no news, no shoes! We like superb food, good booze! For 25 years Gigi's has been our favourite restaurant by far. The location is perfect overlooking the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, yards from the best beach in the world. The service is first class and the fish is to die for . Yes, it's expensive but worth every single penny.

“OVERPRICED!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

We took the kids there for lunch having spent the morning on the beach. E230 for 2 Bass 1 x sliced potato a few beans and a small mixed salad. Service poor. Unless you have recently won the lottery or want to be ripped off, avoid at all costs!
