    The staff were so polite & professional. The service was very efficent especially when the restaurant was busy. The food was disappointing for a 5* Hotel. Food was warm not very hot , plates very hot and the food just warm on starters and mains . Everything was so buttery and salty . meat, fish , sides etc.. We did relay this and it was very politely received , we did receive a discount on out meal but this was not our intent or motive,we would have liked a higher standard of food served. Just a bit disappointed:(

    GiGis resturaunt itself is nice. We dined as a couple for an evening meal which was lovely. Food was lovely and our waiter was a gentleman and really made our experience more enjoyable. Unfortunately, the following morning we had a different experience. We were booked in for breakfast at 10:15am. There was a queue of 6 other couples ahead of us waiting to be seated, this did not adhere to covid 19 protocols. We were waiting for our cooked breakfast for approximately 1.5hours. The service was awful and certainly not 5 star worthy. There was different staff on from the night before. I would not be paying 269 euro for a stay here again. Very disappointing experience to what we expected from a "5 star hotel".

    Staff are excellent, attentive and courteous. The venison the beautiful. Personally I did not like the fact that the quail was breadcrumbed but that’s a personal preference . The food was well presented and was full of taste. The price does reflect the venue and the quality of the food. A good place to go for a special occasion.

    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!

    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.
