Fantastic atmosphere. Hake was great. The roast lamb was the best I tried in England, very tasted, soft and tender. Don't forget to try the sticky toffee pudding...

The atmosphere was fantastic for a dinner with friends, but could also be good for a romantic evening. The food and drinks were delicious, and the service was hospitable.

Gee's is always a wonderful place to dine. Its relaxed conservatory ambience with well-spaced seating and attentive service is consistent from year to year. The menu is never boring or repetitive and the choice always more than adequate. However this year the Guinea fowl was cooked to a succulent perfection no other restaurant I have visited has ever paralleled. Needless... More

Back in Oxford and back to Gee's for a family reunion. After all the political upsets this year, it was lovely to find it is still good in terms of atmosphere, service and food. Agreed it is not cheap. Most of us were very happy with their meals apart from the one who chose the squash soup - it was... More

Great atmosphere, really nice décor, enthusiastic staff the only thing that lets you down is the very bland food. Everything we ordered (party of 4) was totally bland. The pumpkin and chick pea soup could have been made of anything as it had no flavour whatsoever and hadn't been seasoned at all. The mains were just the same, bland. Not... More

Food and service excellent. Not cheap but worth every penny. Booking essential, which says it all, its own recommendation.

Very calming setting for a family meal. The stone-bass in mussel broth was light and fresh, the puds a good balance between extra indulgent sticky toffee and palette cleansing lemon/ blueberry mousse. As with so many places in Oxford though Gees has chosen to go down the 'discretionary' 12.5% service charge - i think this is a shame. In this... More

Loved the atmosphere, feels like you're in a garden or garden canopy, yet you are actually on a main road in Oxford city. Recommended by Ray our London Oxford Taxis Driver as a place to impress your clients. Great choice hence the sneaky mention. 2 out of 2 for his recommendations and a heavy 9 put of 10 for Gee's

Description
Our 2013 transformation remains loyal to Gee’s traditions of providing quality food & service in the most beautiful restaurant in Oxford. Whether flooded with mid-morning sunlight or under Oxford’s evening sky, Gee’s is the place to enjoy exceptional food in unique surroundings. The tables on the outdoor terrace are surrounded by the dense foliage of topiary & potted plants – & if you like the plants, some are available for sale. The new interior is filled with trees, new furniture, soft colours & lighting.Of course the important aspect of the new Gee’s is the cooking. A brand new kitchen incorporates a wood fired oven & a charcoal grill; food acknowledges the continued interest in the origin of ingredients, seasonality & the variety & abundance of local Oxfordshire produce.Gee’s remains the place in Oxford to enjoy a fabulous meal. There are dishes for sharing & dishes in two sizes to suit different appetites & times of the day. Expect great food to suit every occasion, served by knowledgeable & friendly waiters, in this beautiful, iconic glasshouse in North Oxford.
