Hungry after a bush walk and craving a steak a local recommended Jose Jones. Within minutes we were seated and presented with the menu and table water. The atmosphere was lively and the staff understand what good customer service is. My steak melted in the mouth but it was overshadowed by the freshness of the green vegetables which highlighted how much taste our food loses by the time it arrives on our plates in the city. I've love food and cooking and have dines at hatted restaurants but I can truly say this was the best meal I've eaten. Thanks guys-you're the best.

Wow, thank you for your great review and taking the time to share your experience here Bronwen. We are glad that our sirloin was just the right fit after a big bush walk. With your description of the veges and the 'melt in your mouth' steak, you've definitely sold it! Hope you had a great time at the show afterwards and we would love to have you back in sometime soon to try something new off the menu :)

Cheers,

Emily.

My partner and I had dinner last night at Jose jones and it was really good! The atmosphere is vibing. The service was amazing! We had the meatballs, pork belly sliders, steak and linguini. The only thing I would say is the meatballs were slightly dry but apart from that everything was fantastic!! Can't wait to go back.

This is our treat place where we get to whenever we can. Superb food and drinks, specials change all the time so there is always something new to try. Great ambience, often with live music. And to cap it off service is always friendly. We just have to keep coming back.

So willing to cater for us with every need - such efficient service and totally easy going about splitting the bill between all of us. The food was just delicious. Am highly recommending to everyone!

Turned up without a reservation, staff were lovely, friendly and attentive. Food is amazing, beefburger with pastrami, pickle, cheese and sauerkraut for me, perk belly sliders for Mum and cider battered fish and chips for hubby, all beautifully cooked and presented. Fabulous ambience, young guitarist/singer performing. Great way to spend Sunday afternoon! Also boutique beers on tap, all very reasonably priced.

Thank you for a great review Apar8! We thoroughly enjoyed having your family in for lunch on Sunday and on such a beautiful day. The burger and the cider battered fish are definitely some of our favourite lunch picks and the pork belly sliders are one of our most popular tapas dishes.

Have a great week and would love to host you again for lunch or dinner in the future!

Cheers,
Emily. Jose Jones
