    The ambiance and service were excellent. We enjoyed the asparagus, but were very disappointed with the lamb cutlet and rib eye. The latter were very chewy, and the sauce on the lamb obscured the taste of lamb. Very heavy. What’s wrong with fine meat lightly seasoned?

    This is one of my favourite restaurants in Oxford and I had another wonderful lunch at Gees on Sunday. We sat in the courtyard in the beautiful Oxford sunshine and it was wonderful. Such a lovely spot! And that's before we even get to the food. I had the lamb cutlets and my friend had the fish - both very good, as were the sides. And the service was great - attentive without being obtrusive.

    A lovely relaxed lunch with relatives. The staff were friendly and the food was delicious. A good place to spend time over a meal. We had coffee in the little garden outside which was delightful.

    Great all round. But acoustics make it a little hard to make out conversation. Tables in passage outside look make-shift and like every drop being squeezed out of customers.

    My wife and I had a very enjoyable time at Gees. Service and quality of food was excellent. Food was delivered very quickly and the free ice cream was a nice touch in recognition of my birthday. Would definitely recommend.

    My wife’s bream was poorly cooked. My pork chop was good but overcooked. Our waiter began quite well, but then became inattentive to the point where I had to go up and get the bill. I cannot recommend this restaurant except for its ambience.
