Why wait in long queues in Athens? Here you
have great food, friendly (even personalized) service, quiet ambience, a separate room for family celebrations and more. ChefJose sent our table a delicious house salad gratis. Venigrette olive mix and small toasts delicious to start. The food? Small filet and crab cake perfect, salmon and veal dishes great, wine by glass outstanding and generous amount (1 glass really is enough). Enjoy this place during the week and let the out of towners have it Friday Saturday because the word is out!

It’s hard to find enough superlatives for this restaurant. We knew Chef Jose Zambrano previously and were delighted when he opened Girasoles (Spanish for “Sunflowers”) in Watkinsville. We’ve eaten with him many times, usually Sunday Brunch or dinner, and have always been thoroughly pleased with our dining experience. Chef Jose never fails to come by our table to make suggestions or to check in during the meal. I grew up on the coast of NC and usually order whatever fresh fish he has on special (last week an absolutely excellent sea bass). The restaurant has a Facebook presence where he recently posted a video breaking down large whole fish into menu portions. “Passion/passionate” are MUCH overused terms these days but a meal at Girasoles will introduce you to a chef/owner with a passion for excellence that permeates every aspect of your experience in his restaurant.

We had two different seafood specials (prawns/grouper), and we both were impressed. The server was new but very polite and professional.
Not a meal that I could afford regularly but perfect for a special occasion.

Excellent food! Everything is amazing. The Sunday brunch is complete with salads, shrimp and grits, and dessert.

I dined at Girasoles restaurant today for the first time. The occasion was my daughter-in-law's birthday. On Sunday;s they have a buffet and it was lovely. The items were on separate tables with main dishes and sides on one, desserts on another, a meat carving station and an omelette cart. The choices were wide ranging and healthy as well as delicious. The dishes were indeed fusion dishes as well as Mexican and Mediterranean. The experience was totslly fun and delightful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. A true new gem.
