We were at Gee's for private function and I can not fault anything. The service was amazing and the food, some of the best I have ever tasted.

Went to celebrate a family birthday. The food is of a high standard and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. A great place for people watching too!

Having lived just around the corner, we have visited Gee's countless number of times. Is stays my personal favourite for an occasional romantic dinner. To my mind, Gee's offers a great selection of seasonal products, surely one of the best in Oxford, and they change their menu regularly. The atmosphere is smart casual but mostly relaxed. When in Oxford, it... More

Went to Gee's on Friday with my partner, for lunch as we were overnighting in Oxford, staying at the groups hotel, The Old Bank. Staff were very welcoming and extremely knowledgeable with regards to the menu choices. The starters and mains were delicious and very fresh, the wine reasonably priced and very good. It was plainly evident that the ingredients... More

The menu is limited and the staff who served us did not know how to serve the wine. The desserts are poor. The food is given a Spanish twist but it is a poor effort. Maybe on the day we went it was one of their worst performances!

My wife and I booked a table here for our Anniversary - last year, being our 'Pearl', I had taken her out for a VERY expensive meal in Cyprus so wanted to try somewhere new and well regarded, rather than just going to a Weatherspoons or Cafe Rouge. I read a lot of reviews and we decided on booking a... More

Went to Gee's with friends and we booked a table for 8 or 9. We had a nice and large table under the glass veranda, which was really nice due to the number of stars in the sky that night. Employees were really welcoming and friendly. They truly contribute to the nice atmosphere of this place. I ordered the burger... More

I was given a gift token by work colleagues so my partner and I went for an evening meal - the first here for us in several decades. The food was mediocre, there are many better places to eat in Oxford at a similar price and you can eat something much more interesting and better executed. When it came to... More
