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.
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.
Service was exceptional! All staff went above and beyond to make our table feel welcome and catered for. Food beyond delicious. Will absolutely visit again.
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!
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.
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.
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
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!
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!
Went for Greek night, the food was delicious, the staff attentive and friendly and the atmosphere was great, we will be back again, thanks so much
Good place to hang out and seems like it would be good no matter what the time of day. Friendly staff, good vibe, good service and good food.
Great friendly staff, plenty of menu options and we were able to wine and dine and have plenty of time to get to a show nearby.
Great atmosphere, super friendly staff and exceptional food. The half-hour wait for a drink and then our food order being lost took the edge off what would've been a great night out.
