“Jose Jones is awesome, it’s our go to place for an awesome meal and great drinks. Best time to go is when they have live music on and sit outside. We always choose something of the specials board and they have never disappointed with the high quality delicious food. Great friendly staff and cool location next to an old school motel, right near the beach.”

Great Food, Great Prices – TASTY!

“Had dinner tonight. We had the buddha bowl and lamb burger – it was awesome. Started with cob bread w/ brie cheese, so light and tasty! Ten out of ten for both the staff and the food. Sorry didn’t take photos just enjoyed!!!
Would highly recommend but you’ll need to book. We ate earlier so we could eat there – so worth it. FRESH and TASTY.”
