Family type environment. Nothing fancy. It delivers what it says on the tin - simple food served well. We were a large table of rowdy diners - everyone was satisfied with their order and there were no mess ups.

We had a business lunch at Jose's. The food was well prepared - exactly the way I like my steak. Manager was very accommodating with our requests.

Ate waaaaaay too much! Had a 500g Espetada. Starter was a seafood pancake. Also yum! Service was exceptional. One of the best ever. Setting is kind of like an ancient home. Quite interesting. Overall great experience

First time we tried this restaurant. Fair priced and fair food. Great starter. My main of giant prawns was tasty but prawns were overcooked. My wife's Kingklip and prawns were also quite good. Service was great. Will be back to try other dishes.
