Description: Opened since December 7, 1994, Gio's Restaurant has been serving islanders and tourists with an excellent combination of local seafood and italian cuisine. Gio's Restaurant was awarded the title of one of the Top 30 Touristic Marvels of Honduras for pioneering a dish focused on the Spiny Caribbean King Crab (Mithrax Spinosissimus). The taste and tenderness of the crab is unparalleled and a real treat for Roatan newcomers. Indigenous to the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, the Spiny King Crab brings a unique taste to Honduran cuisine for all visitors to enjoy. Roatan serves as both the Honduran touristic capital and the hub for seafood exportation. Gio's takes advantage of the ample supply of local seafood to craft their well-known dishes.

“Gio's - French Harbour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Six of us went for lunch and four of us had king crab which was the best crab we have ever had anywhere. We were the only group in the place so service was good. I would recommend. Two can easily share one crab dinner.

“Fun time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

There were three busses from Media Luna that came here for dinner.
My husband and I ordered the platter to share. We enjoyed the lobster and the crab but the shrimp were sooo small. It was good but not great. The most fun was cracking the shells. There was enough food for two people but there should have been for $40.00. Would I go back, probably not I would rather try somewhere else.

“Valentines dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

Took my husband here for valentines dinner. We had a great time and loved the seafood! Platter was huge! More than enough for us to share and it had a very nice laid back atmosphere. It was a good little get away from the AI resort. I'd return in a heartbeat

“Over rated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014 via mobile

Food its ok, don't get me wrong but I expected much more than this.
Lobster is not as great as they say, not enough flavor and shrimps are just regular that you could find in a cheaper place.
Views is great and cheese cake good too!
Price is high for the quality and serving!
