Josselin's is an Island treat! Excellent spin on traditional tapas with local veggies, fruits and fish...had a delicious meal including a deconstructed tuna, a seared spiced cauliflower (maybe my new favorite thing!) and a Korean beef dish. The Sangria cart comes around with 3 yummy choices. A great meal and the portions were bigger than expected. Don't miss it!

Great small portions to share which was a treat because we could sample a lot of things. Food, service and atmosphere were great! This place is located in a small shopping area so you can walk around before or after dinner.

We were looking for casual dining, and I'd seen a sign for a tapas restaurant so we decided to try it. No reservations, but they sat us right away. Beautiful restaurant, wonderful service, and the food was spectacular! We'd decided to only order three plates, but the lamb meatballs were so good we ordered more. Also had the pumpkin ravioli which were heavenly. It was only after we'd eaten that we researched the restaurant and chef and learned about his reputation.

Great place for that special evening OR just a great meal to top off the day.

We ate here 2 times during our trip

The first time, the food was great and good service( our server had a large table that seemed to distract her)

The second time our food was ok, strange since we ordered 2 of the same plates, and our server was not good and not very accommodating

We ordered the korean beef salad which came out rare. No where on the menu did it say the beef is served rare nor did the waitress inform us of this when ordering. We asked to have the meat cooked to medium and were told it might not be possible with a scoff. Well that was not what i expected, we did get our meat back but well done, i guess that is what happens when you send food back

So giving this 3 stars instead of 4 because of service and consistency in food prep

Eventually
