“Sunday brunch - wonderful!!”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

We had Sunday brunch here, and it was delicious. Jose makes omelettes, burritos, pancakes, waffles to order at a stand, where he can also greet everyone who comes in the door. We split a burrito with egg, ham, broccoli, mushrooms, peppers, etc., and a creamy sauce on top... almost like eggs benedict in a tortilla. It was DELICIOUS! Ditto for the pecan waffle we also split. Other highlights: shrimp and grits (creamy and delicious!) and soups. I also had some salad and chicken, but wish I had started and ended with the burrito and waffle. They also had a nice dessert table with cakes, pie and fruit. But again, I would have been happy if I had stuck with the burrito and waffle. Service was excellent. Bit pricey at $16.50 per plate, but was the best meal I've had out in a long time.

“Hidden Jewel and Never Disappointing”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

We have eaten at Girasoles many times and the food has always been top notch. This definitely one of the best restaurants that we have ever eaten at. It is worth the drive from Atlanta and it is a little jewel that is hidden in the little town of Watkinsville.

“Outstanding in every way”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Italian/Mexican infusion. Interesting, varied menu with some unusual dishes. Chef Jose greets all parties both before and after the meal, which I have never seen before. He can also custom make your meal with off menu choices, which I have also not seen. Food was absolute top quality, staff was very attentive and the overall experience was excellent. Decor is understated but very comfortable and rather elegant in a "shabby chic" kind of way. About a 20 minute pleasant drive from Athens, GA. It will be a regular stop for us when visiting the area. Girasoles is on par with the very best restaurants of Athens.
