We visited this restaurant for the first time back this season. She has moved her restaurant 2 blocks up from where she was. It is in a nice courtyard and Gigi is as pleasant as ever. The food is as good as ever also. She is small which has its charm. One waiter whom is very mellow. If you have... More

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

We dined with another couple at Gigi's Bistro and although we enjoyed the company, we felt that the food was good, but not great. The portions were somewhat small. The best of the lot was the spinach-ricotta greek pie. Perhaps the Greek food is your best bet here. The owner, Gigi was very nice.

A small intimate place for wonder continental style cuisine. My favorite dish is the lamb's shank that has been slow roasted in duck fat for seven hours. The salad are very creative and delightful to eat.

Nice food and good wine. Wonderful place to go to watch the sunset. I also loved watching the people on the beach. It can get busy, so a good idea to reserve your table or go early.
