Best fish in Guateng!

Once again Jose's did not disappoint! This is the best places in Kempton Park to enjoy quality fresh food, chicken, beef and their trademark prawn dish! Not that their chicken and prime beef have to take second place. Jose the owner infuse the flavours of the Mediterranean, Portugal and South... read more

Sometimes we have good meals and sometimes not so good. Unfortunately the service is not always the same. The smoking inside the restaurant is a problem, because it is not separate. Food is normally good but there is some nights that even the specials are not available. It is a matter of strike it rich if you're lucky. The drinks... More

I eat there at least once a month. Prawns and chicken to die for. Make sure you book as it gets busy. I was excellent value but they do keep increasing there prices. so far so good though.

We were invited by friends for their silver wedding anniversary and there were 8 of us in the group. We arrived at 7.30pm and food and drinks were... More

when Jose's were still in the CBD, I used to go there for spesial occasions, and the kleftika was the best in Gauteng. I went to the new premises resently. It is much bigger, and less packed (good), but I have to say I was very dissapointed in the service firstly, and secondly in the food. The "kleftika" was small,... More
