If you closed your eyes you could be on a beach somewhere in Mozambique... I would highly recommend the grilled prawns! Tickle your taste buds into a delightful frenzy with whatever you choose... scrumptious seafood, mouth-watering steaks or pretty good Portuguese dishes. And the oysters speak for themselves... YUMMY!

Our whole family loves Jose's. The best prawns in the world. The new location proves to be substantially better. Unfortunately this is the only proper dinner restaurant in the whole Kempton Park. But they have managed to keep the standards up without the competition.

This restaurant is always busy, even midweek - so that tells it all! Staff friendly and welcoming and very efficient. Ambience is fantastic and on weekends the staff do some Greek dancing and plates are handed out to diners to smash on the floor! Food is varied with the Kleftiko to die for. Seafood is fantastic - my wife only... More

If a relaxed inexpensive dinner is what your are after then Jose's is a good place to consider. The menu is not huge but there is something for everyone. Prawns are always good and schnitzel is also value for money. The waiters are attentive. The decor is traditional maybe a bit old fashioned and atmosphere festive on fridays and more... More

I booked a table for 4 on 3/11/2016 for Christmas lunch. A week before Christmas the restaurant phoned & confirmed my booking. We got there (with my frail 84 year old Mother) only to be told there was no booking even though I could see in the book my name clearly written. The manager was extremely rude & not accommodating...

We booked a table for 8 for my brother-in-law's 71st birthday. When we arrived on time they had no recollection of the booking and there was no table. Very disappointing!

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.
