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. A visit for the ambiance and food is highly recommended. Great value for money to the customer that does not want to have to splash out on a really... More

We have been going to Jose"s for years and everytime we go we are impressed with the quality of the food as well as the excelent service. My husband says that it feels like a night out and not just a meal. We usually go on a Friday evening and enjoy the Greek dancing and the breaking of plates.

This place hails from decades ago, and it still is one of the best in Kempton. They are known for seafood and great Mediterranean atmosphere. If you are vegetarian, you only have one dish, but its fresh and tasty. Evenings have a great vibe, with Greek dancers sometimes. Service average, wine list lacking and expensive. In Kempton you have very... More

This restaurant comes highly recommended by most people. From my own experience I realized you shouldn't be in a hurry when eating at Jose's. Business outings there has sometimes been a bit frustrating. But if you are in for a good night with friends or partner/spouse then it shouldn't bother too much. I also deal with lots of tourists who... More

Every trip to Gauteng includes a visit to Jose's. Last night we were surprised with some dancing and the breaking of plates. The prawns and chicken were absolutely delicious ! Cannot wait for my next visit ...
