Jorge was for years our favorite host at Swell Beach Bar. When he opened his own place, we had to check it out. This was our first chance to eat there, and we're so glad we did. The menu was unexpectedly upscale, and everything was delicious. I had the Camarones a la Diabla, served in half a pineapple. DELICIOUS and... More

A sign of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome. Happy to report that the outcome of dining at Jorge's is the same. Great Food at Great Prices with Great Service. This time I had the Special house shrimp( 4 large shrimp stuffed with mozzarella cheese and wrapped with proscuitto) served with mashed... More

Jorge's is a small family run place just north of Olas Altas where it ends at Palitas. If you didn't know about it or weren't sent there by someone who knows or one of the other great reviews you would probably never notice it. Its small, family owned and run and that is the thing that makes this true "hideaway"... More

We really enjoyed Jorge's. Jorge greeted us as we got out of the taxi, then led us to a table. This is a small "hole in the wall" that delights. The entire staff is engaged and makes your experience homey. I had the shrimp muleta - deliciously different & a beautiful plate, & Sandy had the tuna which was lovely.... More

You would never just stumble on this little gem. It is up the hill on the south end of Olas Altas, then left into a culdesac. This family run restaurant emphasized service, flavors, and presentation. Many different shrimp offerings, artistically arranged. I enjoyed my kahlua shrimp and my wife feasted on coconut shrimp. Both were really, really good. There is... More

We have been there probably 1/2 dozen times and never been disappointed. It is not well known as far as location but the food never disappoints. We took three members of our dental team there on the first nite of our week there, Nov. 13th, and everyone loved it. The coconut shrimp are amazing but truly you cannot go wrong... More

Jorge's is off the usual beat, but well worth the walk. The staff could not have been warmer and genuine in their interaction with us. When we requested a table out front, no problem. A table was set up and we were seated. I ordered the tortilla soup to start. It was loaded and delicious. They brought my wife a... More

A friend had maybe their signature dish, shrimp baked in half of a pineapple. for starters the some had the clam chowder. Everyone was extremely happy with their food which where all prepared in a...
