I am surprised that I missed this restaurant, given that I have probably passed on the street quite a number of times. It is an elegant restaurant, the food was delicious and I quite enjoyed my visit. I must also comment that the food was served very quickly for a group of eleven. I have already decided that this will... More

I went there forgetting it was secretary week. Even though I did not try their escargot and frogs legs, their lunchtime menu was a lovely twist, different from the usual restaurants here. The team were pleasant, I was filled to the brim and I have to return for those frogs!!!

I had a lunch date with friends at Joseph's and it was a wonderful experience. The ambience was one of a relax, casual, warm and friendly. I enjoyed the lunch and their delicious carrot cake. The chef was at one time part of our conversation. He came to ensure the meals were to our expectations.

I took my team there for lunch and thought the menu was just ok, with rather expensive fare but not really worth it..I should have taken a cue from the fact the restaurant was empty at lunch.. Would certainly notdo this again with a group. I think there are better options in POS......

My friends kept this place open on a Thursday night as I was landing late into PoS. Not only did they stay open for 3 customers and we had the whole place to ourselves, but I walked in to a phenomenal mezze starters, as good as any great Lebanese place I've ever had anywhere. The lamb chops main dish was... More

We took my Dad here to celebrate his 74th birthday. The staff was extremely pleasant, attentive, professional and accommodating. They made our celebration memorable. The owner / chef came out a few times to personally check on us. Their wine reccomendation was spot-on. They even gave my two young daughters free desserts to carry home. I thoroughly impressed from start... More

Joseph's is a hidden gem that is not well known locally which is good for those like me who call for same day reservations. The menu is Mediterranean, food is delicious and service is generally good. Lamb is a specialty and there is a great selection of wines. I've had dinner there three times in as many years and except... More
