Nice relaxing and cosy atmospere great food and drinks. The Seafood, they have a surprisingly big menu with loads of options. This is the spot in Johannesburg for fine dinning . Great service and value for money. Free Bread and a small starter .

Nice relaxing and great food. Despite this being mostly Portuguese food i.e. seafood, they had a surprisingly versatile menu with loads of options. The chicken was divine, and I didn't hear anyone complaining about the oxtail. Great service and value for excellent food.

Smoking area not enclosed as per Liquor Licence and Tobacco Products Control Act requirements. Portions were small and vegetables served were tasteless and of the cheapest around. Definitely not a family restaurant.

We loved the service, drinks and food in this Joberg dinner spot! The steak was great and they had a wide variety of dishes for those wanting to try something new! There are rather small portions, but its not hard to get full!

A but if a flash back to the past! Many years back went to Jose's when it was a little bit of a dive in the middle of Kempton city but served an excellent meal. Even in those days it was tough to get a table. Well now is a bit of a dive in a strip mall with the... More

Went to Jose's looking forward to some good seafood, absolutely terrible I wanted to order a Kingklip and Prawn combo only to be shown two small fish which look like they have been caught this morning and not very appetizing at all, then being told that is the only fish they have for the evening and no Kingklip fillet available....

We made a reservation and glad that we did because the restaurant was full at the time of our visit. Service was good and our waiter very helpful in explaining the dishes on offer. 8 friends, 8 different dishes all served at the same time which is unusual these days. All our party enjoyed their meals. Recommended.

Really good and tasty Portuguese food. Service was not great at all, playing 5 song playlist entire night. Did not want to switch heaters on to make restaurant nice and cozy.
