J&J offer a wonderful selection of food. I have been here twice now, once with a group of girls for one of our regular dinner dates, and once for my birthday. Both times have been faultless. Its a great way to get you out of your rut and trying something you possibly wouldn't, but with the ability to try 3... More

This restaurant is a little different as it offers your choice of small tasters as a main meal. For $33.50 you may choose 3 from about 12 options which are served on a large rectangular plate. The presentation is great and the selections include ostrich, rabbit or quail as well as more traditional fare including scallops, lamb and vegetarian options.... More

Love J&J it is a very different way of dining, they specialize in not the run of the mill dining food. U get to try foods you may not normally try, it is a art on a plate, absolutely an enjoyable dining experience

Seated in a draught for two we were served by an unfriendly stuck up waiter. The menu is silly food at silly prices. I don't want to be told how many silly little dishes I have to buy. The food was genuinly inedible. The wine list is uninspired supermarket plonk at 300% mark up! Seriously folks avoid this place at... More

We went for Mother's Day lunch booked by chance by our son. Once we understood the menu and how to choose from the detailed menu we went to town and chose exotic creations and hoped that they would allow us to experience interesting flavours without having to endure a large portion if it was not suitable. Wow what flavours and... More

One of Geelong's better restaurants which serves three or four smaller dishes - all usually very good and plenty of variety. A nice way to eat out.

Had a very enjoyable night for family members 50th. Large number of us (about 30) and could not fault the service or the food. Each portion was so full of flavor and tasty. Service was very friendly and they accommodated us very well. Would return in a flash!

Once accustomed to the style of food which is always explained by the table staff, this is just a great place to dine from morning, noon to night.
