We had two family celebrations in the restaurant a number of years ago and they were excellent but this our third visit was a real let down. Menu choices were poor and food not up to the standard of our previous visits.

Dinner last night was a pure delight, two duck leg starters fell off the bone extremely tasty, two fillet steaks for main cooked to perfection(rare & medium) garlic sauce and peppercorn sauce were to die for.

Didn’t go for deserts but as we were finishing our drinks our waiter had noted I had said it was my partners birthday and brought us a small plater extremely thoughtful.

Only small complaint would be to sharpen the steak knifes!

Cant wait to go back again!

Service was far too slow, starters were nice but the Cod Main was under seasoned and sitting in puddle of tasteless water, Lamb main over seasoned, far too salty to eat. Potatoe Rosti served with Cod was near impossible to cut with a knife. It was a special occasion for my husbands birthday but service took so long we didn't get chance to have dessert! No effort made for the birthday plate I had requested. I understand hospitality industry is struggling with staff but this was a joke. And no where near value for money. Extremely disappointed!

Excellent restaurant and I thoroughly enjoyed the lamb. Even more special was an unexpected Happy Birthday dessert & candle. I’ve no idea how they knew as none of my family told the staff. Lovely personal touch, Thanks, Fiona

We had dinner in Gigi's restaurant and totally enjoyed every mouthful. We have often been to Gigi's but the food on this occasion was even better than any meal we had there before and that says something since we always enjoyed our meals in the restaurant.

Our whole experience of Gigi and the g Hotel was wonderful from start to finish. Food was amazing, worthy of a Michelin star, service and staff very professional and polite and friendly. Highly recommended for a special occasion (such as my birthday), as it is a little on the pricey side, but worth the experience.

Firstly you have a rule that attire should be smart casual and no trainers. The gent the table next to us wore shorts and sneakers. Not what we expected!
The food was fine except for the lamb which was not very plentiful and had a lot of fat.
At €137 for 2 I would say slightly overpriced.

The food was beautiful as always. Our waiter, Lucas, was exceptional. He was the best member of staff we encountered on our stay at the g. Fantastic service with an upbeat positive attitude.👍🏻

Unfortunately that can’t be said for other members of staff we encountered at the spa reception area.

Well done Lucas, hope you are still
there when we return at Christmas.

What a amazing experience we had. From the moment we entered restaurant we were made comfortable and we were treated like we were the only people in there. Waiter was excellant, knew everything on menu. Food was like something from masterchef. I had pork neck croquettes for starter with chicken supreme for main. The sauces packed amazing flavours. I thought i was going to be still hungry but wasnt. Could not even finish dessert. My wife had scallops for starters followed by hake. Delicious. Breakfast the next morning was just as good. Loads of choice and again staff were great.
