A bit of a groovy kind of joint. A great cocktail bar with boutique beers on tap and a restaurant that serves very good meals. They have entertainment on the weekends. I highly recommend a visit here whether you are passing through or not.

This was our fourth visit to Jose Jones. The food is fab - we particularly like the tapas. Great menu with great beer, wine and cocktail options in a really relaxed atmosphere. It's a "go to" for us now when meeting friends. Highly recommend.

Food is good as is the outdoor location and general ambience. Let down a bit by the main road location, you are eating in the carpark of a motel.
