Jose's, at the old premises in Kempton central as well as the new one provides an excellent atmosphere , with the owner and founder , Jose himself making sure you're always well tended to . Notable dishes are the Snails,Prawns and most of the other seafood's . there steaks are also of top notch Quality
They also now offer pretty well valued cocktails and the eating experience at Jose's still remains top of the pile

Recently after meeting up with a group of fellow travellers in Johannesburg we chose Jose’s for a late lunch. On arrival Jose extended us very warm welcome while wait staff organised and set up for our group of eleven. Lots of discussion over the extensive menu meant a bit of a wait for our meal, but it was well worth it. The food was superb.

The pre-dinner tapas, served with fresh bread were delicious as was my choice of main, the prawn & calamari prepared in a lemon sauce, accompanied on the side, with steamed rice and a fresh salad.

Highly recommended.

We were warmly welcomed, seated immediately and offered to bang my coat in the wardrobe.
Menu was comprehensive, enjoyed the oysters, lamb and chicken - it was superb. This establishment is well run, we will definitely be back!

I visited twice in the past month and had prawns on both occasions. The prawns are fantastic and the sauce that they are served in is plentiful and very tasty. The service is great. Jose himself welcomes you and makes you feel right at home. I will definitely be returning!

Jose's has been a regular pilgrimage twice a month for some time. It's always been good but as they've become busier so the standard has dropped. We picked a very busy Friday evening but were secure in the knowledge that we booked at lunchtime for 8.00. That mattered not. We arrived and were basically ignored. We got seated at 8.20. Ok so they were busy but the little lady in the front of house became very defensive. This despite us having not said a thing. When the meal arrived my 330g sirloin was 30% fat. When pointed out they offered to cook a smaller steal of the same cut to go with this one. This they did but it does make for a disjointed meal which meant my partner was finished well before me. Why did the chef put such a steak on the grill in the first place? The vegetables were quite terrible. The most bland butternut and creamed spinach which had a slimy unappetizing texture to it. Add to this more of the same defensive argumentative attitude from the lady and quite frankly we won't rush back.
