I paid for my visit using a Groupon. A Groupon can sometimes cause venues to treat you as a second-class customer, but this was not an issue at Georges. We received excellent service; the staff were welcoming and friendly without being overbearing.
The menu is modest, fitting onto one page, but manages to incorporate a variety of dishes. There are a handful of seafood options for mains, as well as one dish each for five different types of meat, and a single vegetarian dish. While the mains menu is minimalist, there is more variety in the starters, mezze and sides.
For an entree, I ordered the traditional Greek sausage with house pickles while my dining companion ordered a seafood dish. The sausage was quite rich, and perfectly complemented by the small serve of vegetables including cauliflower and carrot.
Moving on to mains, I ordered the grilled chicken breast with yemista style capsicum. It was served with watermelon cubes, which were a welcome addition. Meanwhile, my companion ordered the fish of the day. We were both pleased with our meals (and even more pleased that we were getting them cheaply with a Groupon).
The different textures of the meal stood out. The grilled chicken breast was well-cooked but juicy, while the rice and vegetables in the stuffed capsicum were perfectly crunchy.
Georges has both indoor and outdoor seating options; we opted to sit outside to enjoy the view and the breeze. Well-lit and equipped with heaters, the outdoor dining area was comfortable with fantastic atmosphere.
Striking the perfect balance between being upmarket and friendly, Georges is a lovely restaurant that is sure to impress.
