We had a minor issue with service at the start, however staff were incredibly apologetic and more than made up for the shortcomings. We would highly recommend GG's to anyone wanting a quality meal or equally just a few lazy afternoon coffees or cocktails.

We were late due to major traffic hold ups and needed to get to a specialist appointment nearby. Staff were unphased and understanding about our late arrival and coped well with our reduced timeframe, bringing our meals quickly and with no fuss. We highly recommend GGs. Given the reduced timeframe, we only had entrees/starters, which were lovely and there was good choice for vegetarians.

We really liked the SHARE option for starters, the mains were just as good. So good we had no space for desserts! Lovely view over the Fitzroy garden and on a warmer night, if the windows were open, it would be superb. So we are going back on a warmer night! By the way, GG is at the bottom of some upmarket East Melbourne apartments and driving by it is easy to miss or be mistaken for a cafe. It is well worth the visit. (Did we mention the service was wonderful?)

Our table also had a selection of shared appetizers which were very good too. Service was very professional and, best of all, at GG's, unlike so many restaurants currently where hearing protection is requisite, you can actually hold a normal volume conversation with people that you are dining with.
