I was really worried that I'd be disappointed with this place given the prices but the flavor and quality was so so good! Loved it. Pricey but worth it (unlike our experience at Barcuda in Hanalei).

Stark atmosphere, felt sterile for a Spanish style restaurant.

Salad was good sized, protein portions were tiny. Bright lighting, noisy. Service was friendly and efficient.

Food, service and the sangria cart were all amazing. I would go there once if I lived here. The tapas are divine. Go for the lichee sangria.

We decided to try this restaurant for a different dining experience. We have enjoyed tapas from a trip to Spain and agree that Josselin's could cut the prices and portions both by 50% that would allow patrons to sample twice as dishes for the same price.

We really enjoyed the four dishes we sampled, salt & pepper squid, mushroom & spinach, scallops and lamb. The sangria was very tasty with concentrated fruit flavors. The macadamia nut profiteroles was the perfect ending. The bill came to $85

We went early at 5.15 pm so the place was not crowded or noisy, the service was efficient and friendly and we had an easy paced meal but were finished in one hour.

We found it frustrating and poor form that the happy hour drink prices could only be accessed if you sat at the bar, The reduced prices should be enjoyed by all patrons.

If Josselin's would deal with these concerns they would not get the range of ratings from Terrible to Excellent by patrons, in fact based solely on food quality alone, I would have rated them excellent.

This restaurant had good reviews and was recommended by the hotel but we were disappointed. There are plenty of better restaurants to visit. The food was average at best and very small portions. Nothing about the place stood out.
