My husband and I strolled down the street from our hotel, upon recommendation from my parents, to Josephine. The staff were warm and welcoming. They spoke english and were helpful when we had questions about the menu. The restaurant is quaint, about 12 tables and a beautiful wooden bar. The tomato and mozzarella salad that I ordered was by far... More

The service was slow and so was the food, but jazz live-music made the wait ok. Not the cheapest of places and the food was not really fitting the price, but again, the atmosphere and music made up for a lot.

This restaurant/bar really is excellent, we found it close to the hotel we were staying in. Popped in for a drink as Jazz was playing live & we were very impressed with the lovely atmosphere & staff here, we then went back for a meal which was the best meal we had in Barcelona.

Visited Josephine for the first time for a quick cocktail on Saturday night with some friends, we had travelled to Barcelona for the weekend and it was local to where we were staying. It is a lovely classy little place which looks deceivingly big because of the mirrored walls. It was very busy for food, we didn't eat there as... More

Joséphine serves classic dishes in an almost retro café atmosphere. There's a nice bar stacked with all your favorite beverages, seating inside, and out, and on certain nights, live music, too. We started with a couple of salads then an entrée special that was steak served atop a special plate with hot coal underneath. I was able to let the... More

Small French style cafe just off the busy shopping streets, perfect for a light lunch (we had salads) or late night cocktails and coffees

The food was simple but great ingredients and excellently cooked. Caesar salad with crispy chicken followed by Iberico Pork was just beautiful. The dining room is a real gem - an old 'salon' complete with authentic décor and great atmosphere. The service is a little erratic, but just sit back and enjoy being there!

My friends and I went there for a sunday brunch and all I can say is that this is the worst service I've ever had! The place was empty as we were there quite early, however the waiters still managed to ignore us, make us wait for a long time and also to get the order wrong! We had ordered... More

It was supposed to be a special dinner for the night of Sant Jordi. Never have I had such terrible service in Barcelona, and believe me that is saying something. The two waitresses were very nice, the male staff were extremely rude. They forgot to bring cutlery, wine was served in gin glasses that were dirty. The special menu recommended... More
