Founded by Joso Spralja in the 1960′s, Joso’s restaurant has achieved continuous success of over 41 years in business. It is truly a unique dining experience which transports guests to the warmth and beauty of the stunning Dalmatian coast. An all encompassing, sensual journey… guests are lured into a collection of Joso’s artistic expressions. A feast for the senses, one finds themselves surrounded by voluptuous female forms, Adriatic Sea motifs and a multitude of gold and bejewelled trinkets on every wall, shelf and corner. From the kitchen and to your table arrives a dazzling array of fish species from across the globe, each carefully and knowledgeably described by your server. Prepared with the utmost care and simple, traditional flavours, your meal is presented in all of its natural beauty.
NB-Joso's has 2 floors for dining - main floor and upstairs. If you have any accessibility concerns, please let us know so we may do our utmost to accommodate.

This unique and intimate restaurant full of one of a kind art pieces is as close as I can get to dining in Europe and being able to hand pick my own freshly caught fish on ice from the kitchen....but here it’s brought to your table to choose from. Excellent quality and service.

What can you say? Simply prepared, excellent food in a vibrant, invigorating yet intimate atmosphere. If you like seafood, THIS is the place to experience it fresh and simply adorned. Knowledgeable, gracious wait staff. We relish the coziness of the dining rooms and the spectacle of Joso's art and sculpture adorning the walls and shelves. If you like your fish, fresh, grilled and dressed with only olive oil and salt, you won't be disappointed here. The fish does all the talking...not fancy sauces. Lightest fried calamari we've ever had, served with the house made hot sauce...spectacular. We shared a beautiful, simple arugula salad. Pastas perfectly cooked and flavored. Octopus..divine. Don't miss the tiramisu or the delectable almond cookies with a cappuccino for dessert! We will be back...again...and again..and again.

Way too loud. Dover sole was full of sand/grit. Way overpriced for the quality. Not what it once was.

Excellent meal and slow but excellent staff.
Woke up the next morning to a feeling of 'death by salt" from the food. It was a great meal, but for my palette, over salted. Great wine and overall I would certainly go back and recommend Joso's.

Our group very much enjoyed the grilled fresh Dover Sole accompanied by the House Rissoto. Service was friendly, professional and excellent. But,Beware this is a very expensive restaurant especially if you order their daily fresh fish. Only Problem with Joso's is that you cannot take your own favourite botte of wine?

New Years Eve dinner. Everything perfectly cooked and fresh. Attentive and knowledgeable service. A relaxed atmosphere while still refined. Great evening and a superb seafood meal in a city where one can be difficult to find.

This was our second time in a couple months. The first time was for my birthday, and the second time was to celebrate my husband’s and my father’s birthdays. Both times were equally as incredible, but the icing on the cake was the amazing Paul, who has been there for 29 years, and who was ever so gracious to us. The food is excellent, but the history of Joso and how the restaurant came to be, is even more endearing.
We loved it and will be back again for sure!!!!

my partner loves fish, so i took her there on her birthday. I hate fish, but sometimes you need to keep your partner happy. She loved the freshness, and the variety, and the taste! I really enjoyed their non fish menu as well. the atmosphere on the main floor is really special..definitely be back!
