We arrived at 11:30--too late for breakfast and too early for lunch. We had walked a long way that morning and were in need of beverage and food. The manager was helpful, but when we had not made a decision moved on to other tasks. A young man attempted to take our order, but could not understand even when we... More

A beautiful restaurant (with a small sidewalk cafe) in a gracious part of Barcelona, yet tucked away from the bustle. Friendly waitstaff and very good food, plentiful portions.

After just a few minutes we felt like it was a place where they try to get as much money as they can from you. We tryed to change our choice of starter after ordering it but that was not possible even if we had not got the starter yet. A waiter also came and put another starter on our... More

We knew Josephine as a charming place to have a drink but today we discovered that it is also a good choice to have a tasty dinner. Impressive tuna tartar! Good music and ambiance. Very friendly service, thanks Adria!

Lluís Hi, thanks for sharing your experience. Our chef strives to prepare the fantastic dishes there in the letter. As you say, the atmosphere for a drink is fine, and if you spend the Friday night, you can enjoy live music. If you enjoyed the dinner, I recommend spending a day at noon, and try our menus. You might take... More

very nice personnel, speaking about 4 languages, but tourist place - the food was ok but a bit expensive for Barcelona.

I don't want to be ignorant; may be it is excellent for some people who has supreme taste of gastronomy. But for an ordinary guy like me it was a complete waste of time and money. There were no flavour in the food as if it was not prepared to feed u up but for an artistic show. Waiters were... More

1. Bad service, our reservation was given away for 5 minutes delay. The waitress kept on blaming our 5 mins delay. 3 : terrible food : no seasoning in the salad, no sauce in the burger, everything we had was tasteless! The only ok thing was the music and the decoration. I really don't recommend this place,!! D D

On arrival we were seated at a table but the service was very slow. My starter was farm eggs and ham with fried potatoes which was good. I ordered the fillet of beef medium to well when it arrived it was rare to medium, trying to catch the only waiter was impossible. When I had finished and left half the... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
