Nice and quiet garden restaurant on busy UN Avenue. We wanted to like it but after three visits we have to admit to ourselves that the food is just not keeping up with the expectations raised by decor, attitude and prices. Service tends to be slow, too.

Since our office has relocated to Gigiri with my friends and colleagues, have frequented the restaurant quiet a few times for lunch. The ambience is pleasant and having tables also in the garden allows for a relaxing lunch. The food is excellent and the waiters efficient and polite. I can certainly recommend. Halina

This is the perfect place for long lunches. I have visited the restaurant regularly when in the Gigiri area. I specially like the variation of food and the specials that change frequently. Service is perfect. Its a very relaxing place with ample parking.

I had a red snapper and pasta dish at the Gigiri branch of this restaurant. Maybe not the best choice this far from the ocean because I came down with some bowel movements in the middle of the night. It must be said that the service was very good.

This is a lovely place, and quiet for the location. Make sure to sit in the lovely garden, no matter what time of year. Many many options on food including vegetarian (perhaps too many!), and great service. Always a winner.

Thank Lily W
