This place was a complete surprise! The food was seasoned to perfection, that's why there was no salt or pepper on the table you didn't need it! Sherry's salad with the hot bacon dressing was out of this world. The cocktail was superb! Service was absolutely on point! Do yourself a favor and eat here!

We eat at Girasoles fairly often for Sunday brunch. For a very reasonable price, there are a multitude of choices. Chef Jose` will whip up your favorite omelet, pancakes, breakfast burrito, waffle or eggs benedict which has become one of our favorites. Rather than an English muffin, it is served on a waffle with fresh spinach, sumptuous ham, eggs and... More

Chef Jose is very accommodating for special diets. He personally visits your table, goes through the menu and offers to make whatever dish appeals to you. I have eaten at Girasoles several times and each experience has been great! I chose it for my birthday lunch with friends later this month and I can't wait to go back!

Chef Jose and the staff at Girasoles made our dining experience fabulous. We are a group of 10 women and on a Friday in Lent most of us couldn't eat meat. The chef came to our table and told us what he could create to accommodate our dietary restrictions. The meal was fabulous.

We visited the GA State Botanical Gardens today (wonderful!) as a break from the highway on our drive south, then wanted lunch and found Girasoles on Trip Advisor. The charming town of Watkinsville was close by and on our continued "blue highway" break from the interstate. We drove by the restaurant 3 times because it is set back a little,... More

A bit off the beaten path for most, this quaint restaurant is a gem that you need to try if you are anywhere near or passing through. It's been in its present location for 12 years, so it's doing something right. Everything here is made from scratch. Seriously. An eclectic mix of Mediterranean, Mexican, American, etc., all with a quirky... More

This is a wonderful restaurant with great service and even better food. The chef will cook to order so do not be afraid to make personal requests. Don't see it on the menu? No problem ask and chances are the chef will make it for you. Tip - go for lunch, great price for the same great taste.

Ate here on a Friday night before UGA football game. (Make reservations on weekends) We were with a friend of the chef/owner, so sat in the VIP room, which was private and relaxing. Bread is brought to the table with a balsamic vinegar reduction that is delicious. We ate several plates of it! We were a group of 6, and... More

We have been eating at this restaurant since it opened and have seen it evolve over the years to the present beautiful, but relaxed, setting. The food has been very consistent, thanks to Jose, and his personal touch. He is very friendly with his customers and is always willing to customize your meal. You will get a delicious meal when...
