When in Spain, you must take the time to enjoy mid-terminology tapas and your favorite beverage(s). Today's location of choice was Jose Louis Restaurante in Barcelona. Although the waiter had a very hard time understanding our Midwest dialect, the food was delicious and the wine...More

The food was excellent. Since we were exploring Spanish wine, we got some direction from out waiter and we had a most delectable time. We tried many different tapas and were very happy.

This has always been one of our favourite restaurants in Barcelona. Excellent old-fashioned service (and no loud music). Great tapas, ham, gazpacho!. Also seafood, lamb, pasta and more. Good value. Nice location with easy access via public transport.

Great selection of Spanish tapas. Nice menu with seafood, lamb, steaks, pasta, etc. Three dining areas: terraza, downstairs bar, upstairs formal dining. Attentive and welcoming service every time! Highly recommended.

Not too many words. The tapas were oily and the bread a bit stale. Frankly from nice setting I would have expected da much better food. Too bad it was a Monday and many other good places were closed.

Jose Luis is a popular up-market tapas chain in Madrid. The tapas, menu and wine list are all of a high standard. The service tends to be friendly and prompt and they serve excellent cocktails. The Barcelona restaurant is no exception, although it is quite...More

It has good food but it's nothing out of the common. Just a good place if you want to chill and it has lost a bit of the charm it used to have
