from the customers

"Jose, the Chef is such a Master that you are safe just saying "Surprise me" when ordering. No matter what is prepared for you, you will find it uniquely different and exquisite in flavor. I have personally

NOT ordered from the menu the

past 4 visits, and every meal was wonderful. Thank you Jose !"

"Six of us had dinner at Girasoles. We shared bites with each other. Each meal was Fabulous. I had the shrimp/crab soup.

Just wish I had ordered the BIG BOWL!

Next time I will."


"Gem of Watkinsville/Athens"

"Sometimes the best places are right "under your nose," so to speak. On Sunday we had breakfast at Girasoles, in Watkinsville. The atmosphere was good, service was really good and the chef was SUPERB! No kidding, this guy must have worked in some resort or cruise ship. He cooks about 4 omelets at the same time, each one with a variety of ingredients ranging from shrimp, aspargus, peppers, ham, etc. ( you choose yours), waffles (chocolate chips, blueberries, etc) and at the same time having fun and entertaining you with his great personality. The buffet includes seafood, and some other fabulous hot dishes. The dessert table is to die for. I am not kidding, I never tasted an omelet so good, and everything was delicious."

"I have followed Chef Jose through four different restaurants over the years in Athens and he has found a home in this Watkinsville gem. If he has the

ingredients he is happy to cook

whatever you fancy to your taste but

his menu is excellent. I have had his

paella (not on the menu) several times

and it is superb. Last time we ate I had a great grouper with other seafood in a

spicy cream sauce with grits on the

side and a great spinach

and other vegetablemixture. My wife

had the VIP pasta with seafood

which was wonderful. The

Chef usually comes by to say hello 

which is nice. I have gone

many times and am always happy."
