Wollongong is becoming a serious foodie hub of late, and Australian-style bar and tapas spot, Jose Jones in Thirroul is leading the charge. With a prime location along the beachfront, they are the ideal spot for relaxing with friends and indulging in some brunch or tapas while treating yourself to a wine or cocktail and soaking up the sunshine. The team behind Jose Jones are passionate about their guests taking the time to enjoy the delicious fare on offer and simply enjoy being there, either cosy by the fire during the winter months, or embracing the summer months, cocktail in hand.
The menu is brimming with local produce, inspired from all corners of the globe with an Australian theme throughout. In the morning, indulge in a buddha bowl with seasonal organic salad, charred greens, sweet potato and drizzled with lemon hummus, or the field mushroom bruschetta alongside a freshly made coffee. For later, we love sharing tapas dishes like the Louisiana pork belly sliders, Italian beef and basil meatballs or beer-battered fries with chilli-lime aioli, ideal with their mojito or glass of wine from their carefully curated list. You’ll find Jose Jones along Lawrence Hargrave Drive, not far from the Thirroul coastline. Although, bookings are essential as this Wollongong spot tends to fill up quickly.
Jose Jones has a great atmosphere, excellent cocktails and tapas. Nice to sit outside with a group of people. Jose Jones has a very relaxed vibe.
Good service and friendly staff. We had a big group but service was fast and cocktails were delicious. We enjoyed our afternoon here at Jose Jones
They served amazing healthy fresh food that was really scrumptious. The chocolate mousse was a bit rich but fantastic customer service 😀. Recommend it 100%.
Great food and excellent prices and great atmosphere. Would happily go there again and handy when going to Anita's Theatre. Food was fresh and healthy.
It was Wednesday theme night & the theme was pasta. I had a taglatelle osso bucco which was superb followed by crepe suzette accompanied by Mudgee reisling. My partner had Gnochi and said it was superb. Staff friendly, informative and efficient.
Great place, food and ambience are excellent. The staff are always attentive and accommodating. And the chef has no problem when we ask to change things around a bit. A must go to restaurant.
Love the food and the changing menu. Love the atmosphere . Its keeping it real and just what the locals want. Only thing is service is a little slow on drinks and bit messy paying for the bill
Great food and service. Perfect spot on a sunny day, also great selection of craft beers on tap. I hope they change the tapas regularly so we can keep coming back.
Had 2 tapas dishes as it was a tapas night, First was Kilpatrick bacon on mushrooms - tasty and enjoyable. The other was Crouqets of lamb and was superb. Service as always personable , efficient & reliable
Nice to see and taste chefs who give equal plate space and diligence to the vegetables. Fresh and beautifully plated. Traditionally tapas plates are like bar snacks but the pork sliders were meal sized! Great food.
Good service, amazing food, awesome vibe. Will defiantly be back! Outdoor seating was good even on a chilly night as they have blankets and heaters to keep you comfortable.
service was lovely and food was great. One waitress however needs some tuition on her wines - she gave me a sparkling wine instead of a Chardonnay and when I questioned her, she insisted it was a Chardonnay (it wasn't). Not fussed as a champagne was just as nice but was perplexed about the waitress' attitude and knowledge.
Food was great and service good, it had a great atmosphere. My only feedback would be, no-one offered dessert or tea and coffee and we would have ordered,but were told at 9pm the kitchen closed. Other than that we would definitely go back.
The food was excellent, the wine was awesome, and both girls that served us were smiling, and pleasant. Could not ask for more. Thanks for a great night!
They had a lot of people there on the night we went so the food was slow to arrive, however when it did it was totally worth it. Truly rate the food highly.
The staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating. The menu had a good variety of choices and what we ordered was delicious. Would definitely visit the restaurant again.
Always a great place for dinner & drinks. I cannot fault anything at all. I will definitely continue coming here & is just what the area needed
This is the second time we have been to this Restaurant. Both times we loved it! great food, service and atmosphere and great with Kids. Highly recommend!
Fantastic ambience & friendly staff. Food was delish - and a Margarita? Don't mind if I do. Looking forward to summer - can't wait to go back!
Great service! These guys are getting it right! Good spot for casual nosh, cafe style, tasty and quirky menu. Yummy mojito 😀 6 mths on they have definitely got a return customer!
