Last December we visited Joséphine and was really a bad choice: it took more than 30 min. to get the main dish, cooking was different than ordered and had to wait 15 more minutes to get it fixed, had to ask for everything more than twice... And no compensation on the bill. Later a friend of mine told me they... More

Although I read some mixed reviews on Tripadvisor on this restaurant, we decided to go there anyway because it was closeby and it looked nice and positively buzzing with people. Unfortunately, that was a mistake. Our waitress was very hardworking and kept smiling throughout, but she only had 1 colleague and the two of them could not possibly handle the... More

This review is all about one drink - Sangria. Authentic, catalan Sangria. We watched mesmerized as the barman made this amazing version from scratch. With 9 ingredients in the mix - this was, by far, the best ever Sangria. I have ever enjoyed. We stayed at the adjacent Claris hotel and closed each evening with this ceremonial drink at Josephine.... More

Cosy restaurant, good service, high quality ingredients, but everything was served cold. that's a real pity. Even after asking to warm up the food again, it was still cold. They should heat the plates. Presentation of the food not so original. We were with a group and ordered several different dishes and they all had the same vegetables.

We just dropped in off the street and had a wonderful meal, great conversation. Quiet considering the location, and the chef was obviously skilled! Best Monk and Salmon I've had in a while!

had a nice lunch here with my son, just across the street from our hotel. The set menu filled up my teenager and the salad I had was good too.
