“What a lovely, and warm experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We were blessed to be George's first ever table. As they are starting with a soft opening, we were asked for our honest feedback. We found the staff friendly and helpful and the food was amazing.
It was so good we went again the Friday and tried some different options on the Menu.

I would recommend the Pork Souvlaki - Amazing either as a starter or a Main.
My brother had the Calamari and raved about it.
And when it came to dessert they had extra little sweet treats that weren't on the menu that we could share and taste.

Calli and George we wish you the best of luck for the future and can't wait to come back.

My taste buds were back in Greece.

“Authentic Greek Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

I took my family to George's Greek Restaurant on Friday night after having watched the new owners preparing the decor over the past six weeks as my wife attends Pilates classes next door.

The decor is incredible creating a feeling exactly the same as the restaurants we visited in Greece and the Greek Islands.

The food matched the decor. It was excellently well prepared and beautifully presented. One of the owners is also the chef - Celli - and she is Greek.

The other partner - George - handles the front desk. Although Friday was their opening night the owners did not open with a big opening event as they wanted to sort out teething problems on the first evening.

The food and decor were both excellent. There were one or two small hiccups in the service on the Friday evening. We returned again last night as we so enjoyed the previous evening. With their full compliment of staff last night, the service was excellent and the small problems of the previous evening had been sorted out.

If you wish to have a "Greek experience, with excellent Greek food, excellent atmosphere and service" then George's Greek Restaurant is the finest you'll find.

We will certainly be returning on a regular basis with our family and friends.
