“Nice way to see 2013 out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

We booked dinner for NYE and had a lovely time. Service was exceptional, we had a great waiter from Spain and the meal was pretty damn good too. There was a 20% surcharge as it was NYE but that didn't deter us and we were made aware of this when we booked.

Didn't worth a visit during your stay in Cooly.

“Reasonable value in a convenient location.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

We ate here just before Xmas and had two good meals. The serves are a little on the small side, but they were very tasty. It's a busy place and you can't book ahead. You line up on the pavement or can have a drink at the bar while you wait.

“Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

It was our first night in coolangatta after a huge day and we felt like a decent meal but nothing over the top. We walked past George's first and initial look from the footpath it was a little too fancy for what we felt like and didn't want to spend a fortune on dinner (plus it was packed). We walked the streets for an hour and ended up back at George's. There was one spare table for two so we sat down. Looking at the large menu we were very suprised with the pricing, around $18 for a seafood main and $22 for steak. I am used to paying more for a pub meal in central west nsw. I could not fault the meal, service was very fast considering the amount of people and the staff were extremely friendly. We could have happily eaten there every night with a change of meal for each of them. Our only regret was only having one meal there in our week long stay.

“Frozen, old fish”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

Went to George's for my wife's birthday. Recently renovated, lovely ambiencte, great service. But...my schnapper (snapper in NZ) fish was awful, clearly not fresh. Waiter said it is sourced in Western Australia !!! Why would you buy old, frozen fish from WA when you could buy fresh fish in Queensland ?? I pointed this out and we were offered a free desert and desert wine, however we were charged for the dessert !!! Quite incredible.
This restaurant could be so good, please buy fresh products !!!! PS George was actually in the restaurant as well, I hope he did have the schnapper, and realized it was inedible.
