We walked from our hotel to Josephine mid-morning for a light breakfast. The waiter said breakfast was over so we asked for toast and coffee. Toast was not on the menu. They charged Euro 8.80 for four slices of toast with butter on the side, not including coffee. The waiter defended the price saying that was what the computer showed,... More

We ate dinner at Josephine in late august. Good service, good and affordable wine, and good choice of cheese. The main dishes were ok. Cosy interior and design. Recommended for a quiet evening in Eixample.

We went one evening after arriving in Barcelona. The restaurant opens for dinner 8:30 -9:00 p.m.. The service was slower than expected but the waiter provided us with after meal drinks. The food was well worth the wait. We will return on our next visit.

Excellent customer service... we left money behind in the hotel, went to get it, they still kept us a table and gave us complimentary drink, as we were so stressed out! We worried we could not eat, as it was so late. Food was awesome. Un-expected pleasure, to listen to a great band too!

We ate here twice as a family. First time was fine, but nothing special. Second time, a catalogue of issues. We were told there was a 10% mark up for eating outside (no mention of this previously); requests for more drinks were forgotten, but added to the bill; the same for certain dishes ordered; and whilst the waiter was friendly,...

Our experience at Josephine (July 7, 2014) was lovely and the food was delicious. All 5 of us really enjoyed our meals. In addition, the service was wonderful. The woman who served our table could not have been nicer! We would definitely go back.

Well, the place pretends to be sophisticated but with the awful slow rather you want to just leave...took 15mins to get salt. Please don't even think about it. Many places in Barcelona such as 9Reinas that can make your night special. Management Lady passed on the horrible hate she has for customers to their team. PLEASE AVOID. TRUST ME

We came over just for drinks on our way to hotel in the evening. There were no prices mentioned on the drink menu so it was our fault that we ordered them still. We though they could not be more than 7 euros. Finally after delicious drinks it was time to pay and mojito + caipirinha costed us 20,22 euros.... More

Sometimes, from one year to the next, restaurants change. They may become better, but most often they become worse. Not so with Josephine. it s still as pleasant as last year when I first reviewed it, and the food is very nice. Quite affordable too, specially at lunchtime. One small criticism: it can be a bit chilly inside. That air... More

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
