Wonderful venue to enjoy lunch overlooking the yachts at Sanctuary Cove. Air conditioning was appreciated on a hot day. Staff were helpful and knowledgeable about menu items. Reasonably priced ( a lot of meals half price) and good sized meals. Restaurant is surprisingly large but not overly noisy. great for families, groups or business lunch. Licenced. Seafood crepes were 10... More

George's at Sanctuary Cove has fabulous service and an extensive menu Gorgeous setting The only problem is you can't book and the queues are out the door For me is sharing the fresh seafood entrees Super fresh, large serves, Especially the avocado seafood I find the batter on the whiting a little overpowering

Went to George's restaurant today, the first time in a long while. It did not disappoint. Went for the half priced lunchtime menu. The main drawback is that you can't book a table and it was a very hot day and we sat outside and it was very hot. I had the sole which was excellent and they took it... More

I've eaten here often, lunch and dinner; for special occasions, small groups, larger groups. The half price menu makes it better than great value. I was concerned the introduction of no-reservations might impact the experience but as we dine early it is never a problem. The staff are professional but friendly, the setting is beautiful, and the food is delicious.... More

The restaurant doesn't accept reservations, but we were advised to get there early else we would have to wait. We arrived at 1145 and were seated immediately, but the queue quickly grew. We had a table by the water which was perfect, particularly with a breeze on a hot day. Menu was quite comprehensive. Not sure what the gimmick about... More

I have to say the only high light of my experience with visiting George's was actually the service. Food was very unpleasant. Bread felt like it had just been warmed up out from a microwave and the prawns were a little over barbequed for my liking. The Barramandi was nice though but hats off to the service. Also one tip...

Nice food and atmosphere but 20% public surcharge is a bit rich. The location is fantastic right on the water and lighting in the restaurant is very romantic

We stood in a long line as you cannot book, waiting for a seat. After 20 minutes we were seated. Service was slow. The food arrived stone cold. We sent it back twice, in the end we were so hungry that even after complaining we were still charged so figured we may as well nibble something. The place was noisy,... More
