My second time in this bistro, same faults, it takes almost an hour to serve you dishes, didn't care we arrive early and receive food after who arrive late, waiters not attentive, food ok, you must be very patient, who pays a restaurant don't deserve , i'll never come back. I asked for a sausage which is cooked in five... More

Mrs. Pecinha, thank you for your review. We spoke in Portuguese yesterday, but since your review is in English I assume you would like to be addressed in English as well. First, my apologies for the inconvenience yesterday. I agree that the dishes you ordered took more than the usual time to arrive. During holidays the restaurant gets full and... More

Ok, I went there twice on a 5-day trip. However, it was only because I was pushing some more expectation for this place. The environment is really comfy, but the food was not quite on that point we could go for "perfect" - it went always on the "almost". It could be better. And there was lack of ingredients for...

Great food, décor and music. Nice local brews (recomend the Gram Porter). Could improve a little in service, but nothing that can avoid another visit.

Josephina's is unlike any other restaurant in Gramado. The extensive menu offers a wide variety of traditional Italian, German and Brazilian entrees with a contemporary flair. The evening we dined there, they offered 9 types of risotto alone. We tried 3 of them and they were terrific. They prepare everything en casa: they bake the bread which is heavenly and... More

We stopped at the Cafe twice while in Gramado, and sat outside. It's a perfect spot to enjoy the ambiance, as it's one street off of the main drag (which can be very busy). The cappuccino is excellent, and there are several "entradas" that are perfect for a mid afternoon snack.

This place is different from the beaten path of Gramado traditional gastronomy. The atmosphere, based on antiques and furniture from the family, the young owners have created a delicious atmosphere that is at the same time cozy and informal. The sandwiches, risotos and desserts, with different kinds of coffee and a good list of wines, makes of Josephina one of... More

Good place for a snack or some tea, but avoid more elaborate dishes.
