I have head mixed reviews of Josh's - but I was pleased with everything on offer. It is a small space - cosy. The tables are close together but the acoustics of the room allow for conversation where you don't have to shout at the person across the table for you which is the curse of modern dining these days....

Interesting and Tasty menu. Staff were great. A little cramped but it was 23 December. Bit on the expensive side for cafe style food.

Relaxed restaurant in Berrima offering interesting, tasty dishes, with good service. The zucchini puffs, pate with Cumberland sauce and the prosciutto and heirloom tomato salad were delicious starters. The warm prawn salad with shiitake mushrooms is consistently good.

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.

Thank DKRobinson
