Gigi is a dedicated gourmet and we enjoyed our various dishes and house wine at her new location kitty corner from the Camino del Mar resort. It's a great place for an unrushed, relaxing tasty meal and sitting under the stars of the Mexican sky. Bon Appetit!

Gisele always provides a great dining experience. Nice garden setting, and we always get a good meal here. Shrimp with mango sauce, lasagna, ginger chicken, fresh tuna (when available)... you can´t go wrong!

We all had different dishes, but were all very pleased with our choices. The shrimp with mango sauce was wonderful, as was the dorado with a wine sauce. Very reasonable prices, great service and lovely atmosphere.

I had a braised lamb shank (2 times) that was absolutely wonderful. My wife had some dorado that was perfectly cooked. Gigi, the owner, is friendly and truly charming.

We stayed in Melaque for one week. It was important to us to mix up our patronage between Mexican-owned and extranjero-owned businesses. Gigi's place was hands-down the best meal we had in town. After a month of traveling through Mexico as vegetarians, it was wonderful to have some beautifully prepared vegetables! The place is only open from 6pm-9pm (just in... More
