This has always been one of our favourite restaurants in Barcelona. Excellent old-fashioned service (and no loud music). Great tapas, ham, gazpacho!. Also seafood, lamb, pasta and more. Good value. Nice location with easy access via public transport.

Great selection of Spanish tapas. Nice menu with seafood, lamb, steaks, pasta, etc. Three dining areas: terraza, downstairs bar, upstairs formal dining. Attentive and welcoming service every time! Highly recommended.

Jose Luis is a popular up-market tapas chain in Madrid. The tapas, menu and wine list are all of a high standard. The service tends to be friendly and prompt and they serve excellent cocktails.

It has good food but it's nothing out of the common. Just a good place if you want to chill and it has lost a bit of the charm it used to have

Food is classical with tapas and other bites, as main courses fish and meat equally represented. During our visit many listed dishes were missing, service was poor even if we were almost alone (eating in a Madrilene restaurant in Barcelona on the day of Catalan i ndependance may be considered as provoking indeed...
