After more than a year, I decided to visit George Tavern once again, and it was actually during Easter Sunday. I arrived around 02:30 pm, and the place was almost full of lots of families and couple; the main barbecue area was on with several chefs grilling meat and fish behind the counter. I was accommodated under the veranda with a broad view of the restaurant just close to the pizza oven. The waiter approached the table (good to see that the staff was wearing the face mask), delivered the menu. Within a few minutes, I decided to order the fried calamari (by the way, they are also offering the Gluten-Free version) as a starter. Capricciosa pizza as the main course, together with a cold Kilimanjaro beer (local) served with a frozen mug. The fried calamari dish was delicious, crispy and perfectly cooked, served with a kind of sauce tartare. The pizza, as the main course, was the same, perfectly prepared by the pizza chef and cooked in the wood oven. The flavour and taste were excellent; the only part I was not too fond of was the amount of mozzarella cheese (or kind of mozzarella) as a topping; it was overwhelming, and I could not really taste the sauce, the mushroom or the ham but overall was a good pizza. Other than this, the food was good, service was efficient, polite and professional, and I had a great Easter Sunday Lunch. The restaurant is placing hand sanitisers on each table, and the staff is wearing face masks, or at least, they are trying to wear them properly. Prices are on the higher side, but the quality of products used to prepare the dishes is also good, and thus I don't mind paying a bit more if I am getting good food and great service. Secured car parking is available on site. I will come back in the near future, and I don't hesitate to recommend the restaurant to friends or others, you will not be disappointed.

Going out with a non meat eater is often a challenge but not if you decide to land at George’s Tavern. Fresh selection of juices and delicious vegetarian moussaka served with salad and potatoes (chips or else) were greatly appreciated. The non veg options are varied enough to please several tastes. We had beef moussaka as well as grilled halloumi which were superbly tasty. Augustino, our waiter, was welcoming and patiently made sure that our orders came through seamlessly. An inside parking and a kids corner for play are welcomed additions. Altogether recommend this place for all of the above and much more.

Giving this 4/5 by Arusha standards. Only been twice for dinner (once in 2018, once in 2022), and my impression is the food is very variable. The kleftiko is very good, some of the nyama choma tasty, some not. Baffled as to why the waiters and several reviews recommended the steaks: not very tender pieces of beef drowning in creamy sauces - not great. All in all, a good dining experience by Arusha standards, and will return to try other things (the menu is very big)

A really nice bar lots of outside seating. The menu was a great mix of food we knew and local dishes. The beef and banana stew was delicious. The guys there were friendly and although we walked there from the Green Mountain Hotel without any issues we decided to get a taxi back and they organised a taxi which accepted US dollars. Definitely worth a visit if staying nearby.

This was our second visit to George's Tavern, and again, a very enjoyable experience. The manageress greeted us on arrival to help us sanitise our hands. All of the staff wear masks at all times. The entrance and restaurant and gardens are neat, clean and very well maintained. We had a late lunch of beef fillet with crisps and creamy pepper sauce (tender meat, delicious sauce, crispy fries), beef burger for our children (very good), delicious garlic bread, hot and buttery, and a plate of samoosas (wolfed down in seconds!) I can highly recommend the place for a good meal, generous portions, friendly and efficient service and a pleasant, green and relaxing environment. We will be back.

We are an International School from Germany and run a volunteer project in Tanzania. We travel for over 20 years to TZN and in the last 4 years we visit this place for our last dinner/lunch of the trip. This place is amazing! The service, food, drinks and place is perfect for anyone who would like to relax and and have a good meal with international flavour!!!

My boyfriend and I visited the restaurant for the first time. The atmosphere is very cute and relaxing and we had a perfect view of Mount Meru. Our waiter Dickson was very friendly and attentive. We ordered the meat platter for 2 and the the portion was quite large. The meal was delicious. We will definitely be back again!

I have eaten here many times over the years. The food is always fresh and all the servers are some of the nicest people in Arusha! I seen they had sushi rolls and I had to try it. As I don't eat raw fish, I opted for the Cali veggie roll, it was great value and tasted great. Also took away a mushroom and red pepper pizza and tiramisu. All were delicious!

Starting with a diverse menu with Greek or Mediterranean influenced, Georges Tavern has a pleasant tree shaded open or patio area as well as an open sided restaurant. Pleasant, efficient service is match with good food. A nice lunch or dinner spot.

Living in Tanzania, I always miss my holidays to the Mediterranean. But now, I know where to go to add least get the atmosphere. We loved the pizza and salad which were all very fresh and the kids loved their crepes! We will soon be back!

Georges Tavern was an amazing experience of great service, friendly ambiance and delicious food. The staff was very professional and attentive. We had the lamb and Thai beef kebabs followed by the Trio Chocolate Mousse with a shot of Calvados (it was an amazing combination). I was very impressed with the attention to details in each dish and condiment served. The yogurt sauce was nicely seasoned, the butter added to the white rice made it so much more flavorful, and of course the kebabs had their distinct flavors. The menu is very extensive, you could come ten times and still not be able to try all the dishes. Other patrons had their favorites, they were coming back for. George and his wife were very welcoming. I enjoyed learning about what brought them to Tanzania to start such a special restaurant.

We had a wonderful family lunch today, waited by Issa who was attentive, polite and friendly. Our drinks came right away and they brought my daughter’s meal quickly. Her children’s chicken nuggets portion was generous and had a good serving of steamed veggies which she loved. I had the beef mousaka which was amazing. My husband’s roast chicken was a little on the overcooked/dry side but the flavour and portion was good. Delish side green salads as well. I had the whipped coffee which was so good and I like that they bring the sweetener on the side. It was lovely to sit outside in their patio despite it being chilly. We’ve also had their pizzas several times and they are hands down the best in Arusha. Will definitely look out for our waiter Issa next time!

My experience at George's Tavern was absolutely fantastic. Splendid food and service. Our waiter Dickson was extremely attentive and catered to all our needs. I would highly recommend George's Tavern. My partner and I are vegetarians and George's Tavern catered very well for us. I wish I could could come back again soon but sadly we have to return to the UK!

The vibe of George’s Tavern is really great with the large outdoor seating and option of inside. They played Greek music lightly in the background which made it feel very relaxed. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. The food is fresh, delicious and large serving sizes! I had the Greek style chicken kebab with salad and baked potato and I was really satisfied. Of course it isn’t going to be the cheapest meal you will get in Arusha but well priced for the portions. I would definitely go back!

My colleagues/friends and me went there last week on Tuesday + Thursday and each night was just exactly how we love it. Very attentive service, ice cold beers, good wine with tasty dishes. The menu is quite extensive, we concentrated on the meat and vegetables choices and were not disappointed! Especially the lamb dishes, pork ribs and to my surprise the best spinach enchiladas I had in a while! Thank you very much for making our nights so enjoyable!
