We tried this restaurant on a recommendation, and we weren't disappointed. We had three different meals and there was no complaints on any of them. The portions are of a good size. The food choices are different from a lot of other restaurants. The staff...More

It's been 18 years since we have been back and we have thoroughly enjoyed it. It has been absolutely great with a great ambience. The crab curry, although a long eat, is a great eat!!!!!!!

Joses has the best food and the best smoking section. Brilliant food, oysters, seafood platters, Kleftiko, oxtail, and many more options. Great Ambiance and the owners are on the ball and are gracious hosts. I will go back again and again and again.

If you closed your eyes you could be on a beach somewhere in Mozambique... I would highly recommend the grilled prawns! Tickle your taste buds into a delightful frenzy with whatever you choose... scrumptious seafood, mouth-watering steaks or pretty good Portuguese dishes. And the oysters...More

Our whole family loves Jose's. The best prawns in the world. The new location proves to be substantially better. Unfortunately this is the only proper dinner restaurant in the whole Kempton Park. But they have managed to keep the standards up without the competition.
