Poor Dining experience

On arrival we were seated at a table but the service was very slow. My starter was farm eggs and ham with fried potatoes which was good. I ordered the fillet of beef medium to well when it arrived it was rare to medium, trying to catch the only waiter was impossible. When I had finished and left... read more

I don't want to be ignorant; may be it is excellent for some people who has supreme taste of gastronomy. But for an ordinary guy like me it was a complete waste of time and money. There were no flavour in the food as if it was not prepared to feed u up but for an artistic show. Waiters were... More

1. Bad service, our reservation was given away for 5 minutes delay. The waitress kept on blaming our 5 mins delay. 3 : terrible food : no seasoning in the salad, no sauce in the burger, everything we had was tasteless! The only ok thing was the music and the decoration. I really don't recommend this place,!! D D

We visited Josephine on our last night in Barcelona as we had been eating economically and we wanted to splash out a bit. The waiting staff were very nice.. one took photos of us enjoying our meal on my camera and the service was great. We had delicious mojitos and before the meal came they brought us some feta with...

Dreadful food. Extremely poor wine selection and annoyingly expensive for the privilege. Also charged for an amuse Bouche which is just outrageous! Ridiculous experience. Sorry we wasted an evening here.

The food was delicious and the staff were very helpful. The set meal of two starters, a main, a dessert and a drink came to only 12 euro! A very reasonable and quirky little restaurant.

We ate here on our first night in Barcelona as we were staying at Hotel Claris opposite and they could not fit us in. Apart from the fact it was convenient to the hotel we enjoyed the atmosphere, the service was very good and food tasty along with the wine! Later in the evening a female singer provided lovely background... More

We found this lovely place while walking around for something to eat one night. Food was really delicious, the mushroom risotto to start was really great & the tuna for main, served raw, fantastic.

Average in every way - decor, food, service. Nothing special to report, unfortunately. Wouldn't go back there.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
