“Gourmet meal but great value”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

Our meal at Gigi Ristorante was a highlight in a week of good eating in Playa del Carmen. Eating outside on the patio with both the owner and chef coming out to check on us was a delight. The food was well presented and delicious. I had the baked salmon and my wife the salmon and pasta and we would recommend both dishes. As we were hungry from a day in the sun and walking the tourist strip we also enjoyed a small pizza appetizer. Gigi was a delightful and highly recommended stop for people wanting fine food at a reasonable price.

“Wonderful outdoor dining”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

The gnocci were lighter than air and even better than my grandmother's! Thankfully we were seated under one of the large wall mounted fans as it was a warm and humid night. The pasta is homemade and delicious. The fish was extremely fresh and tasty and it is right on 5th Avenue where you can get a glimpse of people walking by.

“Nice romantic dining for two”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

This is such a beautiful area of 5th avenue. Much more quiet and a more natural setting than south 5th avenue. There seemed to be mostly couples sipping wine, eating and just enjoying each other here, and at the time we went, there were no children running around and ruining the mood. The service was prompt, and the food was excellent, although it was on the expensive side for just pasta, but the whole experience was worth the trek up to the north end of the avenue. I would highly recommend couples to dine here away from the rowdy area of town.

“Nice place - good atmosphere - intimate”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

Outdoor dining at its best. Food was fairly inexpensive and good. The decorative and quiet surroundings made for an intimate event. Service and ambiance was good as well. We enjoyed the experience very much.
