Published December 5th 2011
Located at the back of Napoleon's Hotel, formally known as Riverwood Inn, is the newly opened Josephine's. It is the work of husband and wife team John & Diane Roche who ran the highly successful Dijon's Restaurant at Woronora for 12 years.

As you enter off off the car park, you are greeted with a fresh modern interior that is ideal for a casual lunch or dinner with family and friends. There is a full bar with soft drinks, spirits and a varied selection of wines by the glass or bottle.

The menu features lots of modern Australian dishes, that the owners refer to as 'fine pub food,' with a few old favourites and offers excellent value. The servings are generous and prices very affordable. There is also a children's menu for under 12's that can be coloured in with pencils garnered from the sideboard to keep them quiet while they wait.

Our group had quite a mix of meals including the chicken parmigana which was deemed to be very good; the chicken breast with mushroom cream sauce excellent; the mixed seafood plate excellent, a chicken caesar salad which was described as "the best ever" by my dining companion, and the children's cheese burgers which were very good, huge and come with a bowl of ice cream for dessert.

Josephine's seats up to 200 people and can be divided to accommodate up to 60 guests in a area set aside for private functions. Bookings are recommended as it is getting very popular now that word of its opening is getting out.
