The decoration got my attention for this place so I decided to have lunch there (great terrace spot), but the menu were very few options, in the ned i had a burger, which was good. The desert was really delicious.

One block off the beaten path, Josephine's is worth the visit. The menu is simple and available in English. The interior is rustic and unassuming. The food exceeds expectations and is a good value, but not inexpensive. The house wine is a 3 star Vivino Rioja. I arrived at 8:30 for dinner. Only a few guests. Service was pleasant and... More

I was walking around and saw this place around lunch time. Has an inviting look. It's nice and not crowded. The bartender does not speak or understand English. The waiter does. They have English menus but the hand written day's lunch menu comes only in Spanish. You choose from a list of two starters and two main courses and beer,... More

It was a little dissapointing as the menu del dia read very good but the food itself didnt live up to expectations. The dishes were small and no particularly well prepared. The service was very choppy, looked as if two of the staff were new and had no idea what they were doing while, who I assume was the owner,... More

This friendly corner diner with sidewalk tables is just the spot for an early oj, coffee and danish or a beer or glass of wine with some fresh anchovies or oysters before dinner. Perfect for a light lunch. Around the corner from the posh Hotel Majestic. Inviting conversationalists with excellent English. Always worth a quick stop. Also, a source for... More

Late night choice for Friday dinner. Very friendly staff. Meals were very nice but nothing truly exceptional. Wine choice of the Spanish Verdelho was very good. Decor quirky but sound system was substandard and air conditioning leaked drops on our table 😕

Place seems always to be full, It's one of the nicest cafe corners in Eixample. However I ended up overpaying 10Euro for a ham and cheese tasteless sandwich and a small orange you. You can get better food anywhere else. How can you deliver such a mediocre sandwich? How hard can it be?

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.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable 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 recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
