Description: Opened since December 7, 1994, Gio's Restaurant has been serving islanders and tourists with an excellent combination of local seafood and italian cuisine. Gio's Restaurant was awarded the title of one of the Top 30 Touristic Marvels of Honduras for pioneering a dish focused on the Spiny Caribbean King Crab (Mithrax Spinosissimus). The taste and tenderness of the crab is unparalleled and a real treat for Roatan newcomers. Indigenous to the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, the Spiny King Crab brings a unique taste to Honduran cuisine for all visitors to enjoy. Roatan serves as both the Honduran touristic capital and the hub for seafood exportation. Gio's takes advantage of the ample supply of local seafood to craft their well-known dishes.

Beach view and seafood were both awesome. We went to tour Daniel Johnson's Sloth Farm, snorkeled, and got a city tour with Cynthia. She recommended this place, it was so good. The crab is from local waters and unlike the crab you get in the States. Coconut and Buffalo shrimp were amazing!

In web sites is KING CRAB WITH LOBSTER for $36, but in restaurant MENU $40!
For 2 Argentinian Churrasco Steak 2x$17=$34 + 2 King crab w. lobster 2×40=$80 + 8 beers ($3)=$24 .....
They charged $188.
We gave $200 ....gave back $4 in lempiras....
So in all restaurant about 8 guests....

That is THIEF.

My wife and I had lunch at Gio's in Flower's Bay and we split the Eldon's special, which was more than enough for the two of us. The lobster and shrimp were cooked perfectly, and the king channel crab was excellent! Oh, and the Peruvian ceviche is a must! The service was also outstanding!

The food was fresh and of the dishes I ordered, which were traditional, it was authentic. I am not big on seafood so i just went with their local dishes. My husband went for the seafood and said it was wonderful. It is NOT cheap but the view is amazing and the staff was very nice.

Loved the atmosphere and fresh fried calamari dinner. Highly recommend either of the Gio’s Restaurants on Roatan, Honduras.
