Delicious food with a difference in a small " boutique" restaurant . Great service and atmosphere, situated in the heart of Berrima, a great place to take a break from shopping or o celebrate a personal event.

From the moment we walked in we were noticed immediately. Some places leave you standing at the door like a shag on a rock. Service and food was outstanding. Wait staff friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The best in the area by far.

Conveniently place at the halfway-point between Canberra and Sydney, Josh's presents the perfect excuse for ACTerritorians to stop for a light lunch or a more extensive evening meal (good accommodation within walking distance). The menu has some Eastern Mediterranean influences but quite diverse. Good wine list, including some very good locals. Attentive service. A great restaurant, equally suitable for family... More

My wife and I have been visiting Josh's for years and although it had been some time since our last visit, the amazing food and service still continues to amaze. Sitting outdoors in the afternoon sun, enjoying a glass of bubbles and the delicious food from the kitchen is the perfect way to spend a few hours in Berrima. Rather... More

Excellent dinner and quality food with great hardworking floor staff. All of our six diners were sutably impressed and not one meal complaiint. The only suggestion is to master the provision of good coffee as it was the last impression and slightly took the edge off.

I took a detour off the highway from Canberra to Sydney. I needed a coffee - stop, revive, survive... driving solo, after a long day, I needed so stretch my legs, take in a bit of off-road calm, and get away from the usual highway truck-stops. Berrima itself looks gorgeous but Josh's Cafe was a real oasis. It was evening,... More

We stopped at Berrima and had lunch at Josh's cafe, only starters as we didn't want a big meal. Served with lovely homemade lemonade, tasty food and great service. Will def be back and recommend. Would love to try a couple of courses next time.

We were staying in Berrima overnight and popped in there to see whether we could book a table for dinner that night. All the tables were booked but said they could offer us a table in the courtyard if we didn't mind that. They had large outside heaters in the courtyard and there was a large hedge around it which...

So nice when you can say to family and friends come to the Highlands I know this great café that has exceptional service and fantastic food. This is Josh's in a nutshell. My family travelled up from Canberra and we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here. Definitely be back again and again.
