Gee's came recommended and I placed it on my list to try.
I opted for the 3 course dinner menu which was priced at £19.90.
Grilled squid with lime and thyme
This is probably the best way to taste the freshness of squid. Grilled to give a bit of smokey flavour and a touch of acidity with the lime with a hint of thyme, this would have gotten the thumbs up from me if not for the fact that the entire middle bit of the squid which is this one big chunk of meat was actually still raw. Understandably it does take longer to cook that section but I didn't finish it.
Whole red mullet, saffron tomatoes and green beans
The red mullet is actually quite a meaty piece of white fish. You get the whole mullet which actually equates to quite a substantial portion of meat. If you generally don't like the smell of fish, you might want to avoid this one.
I loved the green beans which still had a good crunch in them and wasn't overcooked that it is just a pile of mush.
The Bakewell tart had the slightly crumbly base and was pleasing to eat.
I enjoyed my meal at Gee's. The service was attentive and it has a good vibe to it.

Gee's came highly recommended as one of Oxford's best restaurants. Therefore it goes without saying that it needed trying out.
I went there with a couple of friends on a Saturday night. The dining room which looks like some sort of glasshouse with cast-iron columns was booked out which usually is a good sign.
So far, so good. After we had ordered, some bread arrived, that not only was overbaked with a brownish-black crust, but it was also horribly stale. I had ordered goat's cheese that came with a bit of dried-out salad and was completely lacking the characteristic tart flavour. The steak I had ordered as a main course came well-done although I had ordered it medium-rare and was dry and tough. What a shame for a nice piece of meat.
After such an awful two courses, we opted not to have dessert there and left the place in utter disappointment.
That said, service was quite attentive and the staff was friendly but slightly overwhelmed with a full house.
What a pity !

This place is an experience. We went for lunch on a Saturday, and had the three-course prix fixe. I had Jerusalem artichoke soup, gnocchi, and chocolate mousse. It was delicious.
The ambiance was lovely, being surrounded by the glass of the old greenhouse. It had the feel of a garden, but still warm. The waitresses were very attentive, and the service was definitely good. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend it!

I am biased. This is not the kind of restaurant I like. It is a giant greenhouse and serves OK but not great food. The service is OK but not great. The ambiance is (I suppose) OK but not for me.
I no longer eat here. There are too many other much better places in Oxford.
