Respond to Review of CLOSED: Juicy Jones - Cardenal
Review: Wow - what an interesting place. We went to Juicy Jones on C/ Casañas for a well-portioned/priced vegan lunch. The main entrance is a juice bar and the cave-like restaurant area is downstairs. Food was okay. I ate the Thali plate and a couple of desserts (dry/stale chocolate cake and a rock-like almond cookie). Service was sketchy, but since completely vegan restaurants are rare in Spain, I figured it was worth a return visit for dinner. When we returned for dinner, the staff informed us that the restaurant was closed, but the juice bar was still open....unless we ordered a complicated drink, then the juice bar was closed as well. They gave us directions to a different Juicy Jones on C/ Hospital and said they might still be open. When we asked what time the other location closed, the answer we got was something like, "It depends on who's working. If it were me, we'd be closed." So we took our chances. Luckily, the C/ Hospital location was still open, and the service was much better there! The staff was really friendly and the ambiance was much more cheerful. They were, however, out of certain food items, but we had planned on eating light anyway. Overall, Juicy Jones is okay. On my next visit to Barcelona, I'll know to go directly to the location on C/ Hospital. Although the staff may be interchangeable within the two locations, at least the latter is a much more pleasant physical location.
