For lunch you can tuck into a selection of Portuguese "petiscos" that are large enough for one.. or order a few to share with friends! We also have a two course lunch menu that changes monthly - visit our social media or website for this weeks lunch specials.

Jorge's is the perfect restaurant for couples, friends and family meals out and business meetings, if you want to impress you are in the right place!

We are open for Lunch & Dinner from Tuesday to Saturday.

IMPORTANT: Every Tuesday evening we have "Tapas & Steak Night" which replaces our usual dinner menu. You can choose fish, meat, seafood & veggie dishes from our tapas menu. In addition, you can choose from our speciality steak menu too!

Very friendly staff and great food. We were lucky to enjoy the warmest evening in recent months so dined outside, on a Tuesday evening when a set tapas menu is served. They helpfully substituted one dish and everything was delicious.

Jorge's is a local gem or must be to the people of Norwich because this reataurant has all the hallmarks of a great establishment.
The restaurant is cosy and well decorated with a slightly dark but elegant interior and classy feel without being overvearing.
Staff are friendly, very helpful and willing to accommodate anybrequest however they can. When we booked a table we had 4 adults and a 8month old and Jorge himself arranged as best he could space for our pram as our baby was napping on arrival. We also had various dietary requirements and staff were knowledgeable of the menu to guide us to the most appropriate dishes.
The food itself is exemplary, the black pork tenderloin starter and chourizos being highlights as well as the sharing cataplanas for mains. The steak selection was also fantastic with the steaks cooked to order. Portion sizes are generous and we had more than enough between the 4 adults when sharing 2 sharer dishes and 3 sides. The ratatouille is rich in flavour without being too salty and garlic potatoes are divine.
Lastly we tried their pastel de nata and I can honestly say they would not be out of place in a lineup of tarts from the Tower of Belem in Lisbon. Crispy casing with velvety custard.

Family dinner was so good, amazing experience. We are here on holiday and we went here twice both times amazing service and amazing food quality. Amazing staff friendly. It’s always good to feel at home when we are away from home. Make sure too book in advance as it very small place and gets very busy apart from that it’s an amazing experience

Really loved the menu, very authentic mixed menu and my swordfish was full of flavour.

The Portuguese sparkling wine knocked any other sparkling wines from other countries out of the park. A great restaurant for Norwich.

Food was lovely, staff were attentive without being invasive, 4 of us had three courses each plus wine for £170.00 very pleased ,i was expecting over £200.00.
Got very cold once sun went down, but they can't control the weather.
Overall very nice experience, will return when warmer or can eat inside.

Return visit having been many times previously, albeit not since the start of the pandemic. Felt very 'normal'; staff wearing visors and table sensibly spaced but otherwise the same buzzy, friendly ambience that I love so much. Jorge on hand as always with his ready smile and excellent service. Food first class, tiger prawn bisque starter and sea bass especially memorable. Highly recommend this place.

Everything was superb. The staff are all so friendly, helpful and the atmosphere is very relaxed. The food is freshly prepared and cooked and presentation is the best we’ve seen in a long time. Highly recommend this lovely, small restaurant. 10/10 to Jorge and his team. We will definitely be back.

Lovely little restaurant and good service. The place got filled up very quickly, as there are only 9 tables.
The food was okay, one of our starter was the black pork but that was a bit chewy for our liking.
Our lunch comes to £65 for two of us, which I think was a bit pricey.

Had been meaning to visit Jorge's since it opened and wish we hadn't waited so long!
A welcoming greeting from Jorge and we led to our table at just before 7 on a damp Thursday evening. Just one other table occupied but that changed very soon leading to a nice buzz in the room.
We were served olives with bread and then chose the battered green beans with garlic mayo and the pork tenderloin with pickles. Both delicious. We then chose the seafood and fish cataplana for two which was amazing. Accompanied by a sparkling white wine, the meal was then rounded off with the almond tart, a glass of port and coffee.
Overall, delicious food, lovely atmosphere and good customer service. We'll be back!

A great find! Excellent, authentic Portuguese food cooked and served by charming Portuguese people. The "Belota Capita" ham was a fine example of this Portuguese speciality and the Black Pork is simply fantastic. Tiger Prawns, cod fishcakes and some lightly fried vegetables offered a fascinating mixture of flavours. The chorizo, served simply with Portuguese bread was as good as I've ever had.

We skipped dessert but couldn't pass up on coffee with "pastel de nata", the renowned Portuguese custard filled puff pastry, it was delicious. We asked if they made their own but the surprising and rather wonderful response was "no, they are flown in daily from Portugal".

The tapas style lunch we had was good value for money and the restaurant itself is small but charmingly decorated.
