    First visit so not used to the menu. Some steaks were priced and others not. Should have realised that the unproved steaks were extortionate. Lesson learnt. However that wouldn’t necessarily stop me from visiting again.

    We are two old friends who wanted to meet for a catch up and food on a Thursday evening after work. We ordered a few starter dishes and put them in the middle to share. It was delicious and more than enough.

    There was an issue with Open Table which meant our booking at Jorges main restaurant was unavailable. We were seated out the back, with a complementary bottle of wine and still enjoyed the exquisite seafood Jorges had to offer. Couldn’t recommend this place more, from amazing food to customer service, top marks.

    Fantastic meal. We chose Jorge's on the basis of other reviews, and we were not dissapointed. This was the best `portuguese restaurant we have ever been to, and can highly recommend it. The restaurant is small and stylish, lovely ambience, attentive and helpful staff and the food out of this world. We shared tiger prawns for starters and I had a steak whilst my wife had a pork steak. This was one of the best meals we have had in a long time, and can highly recommend thie place.

    We arrived 10 minutes early and was told to come back on time which we did. Once back we were told they still didn’t have a table and we were asked to sit in another building owned by the restaurant. 20 minutes after our booking, still there was no table so we left Totally disorganised and a very stressful atmosphere. Highly unimpressed by the poor customer service we received.

    The service we got was brilliant, sadly the food didn't live up to expectations. It was luke warm. My partner had the steak and chorizo on a stick and half the steak was fat! I had the fish Special, I was expecting great things. The dish lacked favourite.

    I actually forgot I was sitting in Norwich, I was completely transported away to Portugal for the few hours I was in Jorge's. I went for lunch with a friend to Jorge's and we have the Portuguese Tapas lunch, it was so good, the waiting staff lovely and helpful and the décor was really to my taste. The whole experience was so good. I just wish I'd been brave enough to try out the Portuguese I have been learning for the last year on the staff. A truly authentic Portuguese experience, I'd like to go for dinner now so I can try the full menu! Home made warm natas served for dessert as well :)

    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.
