We had a wonderful long lunch on a beautiful table by the water. Staff were professional and relaxed, nothing was too much trouble, and the food was exquisite. We'll be back as soon as we can get a table!

The sirloin steaks were probably the best we’ve eaten. However they were topped with baby gem lettuce, I had a Caesar salad starter, so it was too much lettuce! A mushroom, tomato, and say, courgette medley would have been better.
Excellent fries.
They don’t pour the wine, if you like that sort of thing 😂

We had a booking for 2.30, so had a limited menu. Only vegetarian main course was pizza, which was very disappointing. All the other meals were lovely.

Fabulous location, delicious food, attentive service. Great! My 11-yr-old notes that the kids menu (for <12) serving was a little small, though the kids’ pizzas were W good size.

Amazing ambience with very attentive and knowledgeable staff. A wonderful dining experience that we can’t wait to repeat soon. A very special place to go and well worth a ferry crossing to get there. You feel like you are in the Mediterranean. Despite being busy the service was a perfect pace and it wasn’t noisy, it was calm and serene. See you soon .. we hope 😊

We looked forward to this visit for so long and we're disappointed with the choice of food on the menu. We were both going to have crab as it was on the iPad menu and this is the season for crab but not available.£29 for a sirloin steak that was flattened and sliced up was not good value. My friend had lemon sole which she enjoyed. Summing up food poor value and poor presentation. nice garden helpful waitress.

Excellent food. System went down but seated after 10 minutes. Staff friendly. Sat indoors by door which felt like being in corridor (would know for next time), apart from that lovely ambiance).

Would definitely return & would love to stay at the hotel.

Right near the ferry terminal.

Beautiful setting, delicious food, fantastic service. Overpriced unfortunately- over £30 for a monkfish dish that didn’t come with sides so ended up being a very expensive evening. Staff were great.

The location is fantastic with lots of sea view tables inside and out. The service was very friendly and accommodating. Reasonable wine list but fairly limited menu. Having said that the monkfish was superb and the burger very good. Sadly there were only three side dish options, lettuce, chips or new potatoes. Unforgivably the restaurant ran out of all the desert options (there were only two anyway) so at 8.45pm we were left twiddling our thumbs with an incomplete meal. So in summary, amazing location, great staff, good wine, calm and relaxing ambience but oh dear what on earth is going on with the menu.

Loved the place but it took 2 hours to be served a pizza and one of our party received his burger 20 mins before the rest of us. We were unhappy to have to pay service. ‘Optional service’ is not awkward to take off the bill when you are with friends and family. A good gesture would have been to remove something from the bill.

Fantastic spot to sit, enjoy the view, sip rosé, let the kids have fun in the little sand pit and wooden boat or collect shells while the grown ups enjoy great food and wine.

Sorry not impressed with our waiter-not warm and welcoming. Pizzas arrived when rest of party were halfway through their meal. No other option fir the vegetarians so we were stuck with that arrangement- not great. We chose not to spend more money on wine, desserts or coffee because of this

The George is absolutely stunning. The decor and garden were lovely and despite the difference in standard between food runners and waiters everyone was very friendly and happy to help. The food was gorgeous and priced well although the drinks (specifically spirits) were slightly overpriced. We were treated wonderfully throughout our visit and the admin staff were very accommodating via email prior to our reservation.

A delicious meal - pacific prawns - and excellent service. Expensive but worth it. The pizzas as well were excellent.
Pity the coffee machine had broken down that morning!
We will definitely go to The George again.

We had a fabulous meal hard to choose but monkfish and steak and sides was interesting and delicious. Overlooking a stunning sunset across the water our waiter was fun and charming. Pricey but worth it … recommend the covered area by the water.. casual and cosy.
