Gio's has a nice ambience but when you are the only people at the bar and the only table in the restaurant...it leaves you a bit cold. The food and the service were good but I enjoy people watching and this is definitely not the place for that.

We stayed at Club Seabourne and ate every breakfast and most of our dinners at Gio by Gio. The food offerings were creative and often made from local farm raised ingredients. Gio and his staff were courteous and charming and very professional. I am hoping I can return with a gaggle of girlfriends!

Simply trying to be fancy on an island where there isn't much clientele for that market. We were one of three tables in the restaurant and the service was painfully slow even by Caribbean standards. The food was tasty and artfully presented, but still over priced for where and what it was.

This is a restaurant that is part of the Club Seaborne. Nice setting and friendly people. Food was good, prices were high. Don't really understand the rave reviews.

We ate at a number of restaurants in Culebra during our week there, but nothing compared to Gio's and we returned our last night. We strongly recommend that you plan a special meal or two and drive to Gio's. Save room for dessert.

We loved the atmosphere - both inside and outside (with a fine mesh so insects could not reach you and you could linger over your meal). The food was creative and delicious with choices of beef, pork, and fish, all cooked and seasoned expertly.

The brownie we had for dessert is definitely one of the best things I have ever eaten.

The croquettes we had as an appetizer were amazing, too.

If Gio has time he will come out and visit with the guests. His enthusiasm for cooking and what he can create is the perfect end to a wonderful evening.
