My mother and I had a very enjoyable lunch at Josh's. The lamb skewers were delicious as was the ocean trout. The service was cheerful and efficient. The chocolate, hazelnut and coconut torte with coffee, topped off a great lunch. The cafe supports local wineries with a variety of wines by the glass or bottle. We sat inside as it... More

My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous lunch, while sitting outside enjoying the afternoon sun. We opted to share a variety of small plates to enjoy a wider selection of their menu. We have been coming here for many years and always have a few favourites. It is always hard to go past the trio of dips! The service is... More

Fabulous Turkish inspired food. Buzzy, noisy and worth the experience. Great wine list, the best food and you may get a joke or two from David if you're lucky. Best to book early.

Met with my good friend for lunch on Friday December 9th. It suited us the ambience was good no distractions and we could hear each other speak. We were probably there for about 3 hours with no hurry from the wait staff, thank you for looking after us.

Delicious food with a difference in a small " boutique" restaurant . Great service and atmosphere, situated in the heart of Berrima, a great place to take a break from shopping or o celebrate a personal event.

From the moment we walked in we were noticed immediately. Some places leave you standing at the door like a shag on a rock. Service and food was outstanding. Wait staff friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The best in the area by far.

Conveniently place at the halfway-point between Canberra and Sydney, Josh's presents the perfect excuse for ACTerritorians to stop for a light lunch or a more extensive evening meal (good accommodation within walking distance). The menu has some Eastern Mediterranean influences but quite diverse. Good wine list, including some very good locals. Attentive service. A great restaurant, equally suitable for family... More
