Great Steaks

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.

Jose's are one of the only good places left in Kemptonpark to eat. Lots of extras with the little starters and the little drinks afterwards. A big problem is the smoking....there should be no smoking in the restaurant!

One of my old time favourite restaurants. I always return to Jose’s. The food is excellent and they are known for their prawns. The service is average and the location too.
