What was once a department store now offers a reasonable pasta menu in the heart of Camberwell

Review

Located in what was once the Georges Department Store, Georges is situated in the heart of the Burke Road shopping strip in Camberwell.

Being a former department store means that the building is big, and Georges seems to have no shortage of willing patrons wanting to fill its large spaces.

While visiting for lunch, service was quick, although notably you do have to provide a credit card up front if you’re dining outdoors.

The lunch menu offered a reasonable choice of cafe food, be it somewhat limited to Gnocchi, Spaghetti and Risotto dishes.

chicken parmigiana

Being the adventurous sort I am, I ordered the chicken parmigiana. Weirdly it came with chips and zero salad; the chips were expected, but the lack of salad is stingy. The chicken tasted fresh (free range) and was an enjoyable eat.

My partner ordered the salmon risotto (I don’t eat salmon so didn’t try it) which she described as tasty but not the best she has had.

They may well serve a better dinner menu, because lunch wasn’t all that exciting given the prices charged. We’d possibly go back again, but only for coffee or to try the dinner menu there.

2 stars out of 5

For: good service, nice fitout and location
Against: standard fare, a little pricey for what you get
