Respond to Review of CLOSED: Juicy Jones - Cardenal
by dharma77

Review: I live in Barcelona and I used to come to Juicy Jones very often, I mean to both locations. The first at C/ Cardenal CasaƱas 7 has slow but friendly staff.I never had any problems there.The food, as many said already before is good, fresh and cheap.They have really nice smoothies,big salads and excellent menus.They are not so good on the desert side but hey you can't have everything.The thing is that last time I was there with a friend we saw 2 huge cockroaches.I know that they are in most of the restaurants next to La Rambla but it was shocking anyway.Waitress explained to us that they went through pest control and all of that but since then I haven't been there (07). At the other location at L'Hospital I have never seen any living creatures.But I know that my friend got food poisoned after she got meal there.Bad luck I guess.As for myself I never had any stomach problems after visiting these two restaurants. I also had unpleasant encounter with the waitresses at L'Hospital.I mean I ordered juice and it never arrived my table (I noticed it landed on the neighboring table..)and after that they tried to charge me.I explained what have happened and luckily I didn't had to pay but the situation was already weird.Another time I ordered something and I got completely different dish... My theory is that generally the service in Spain is very bad and also considering that in all Juicy Joneses work mostly foreigners who never stay longer than probably 1-2 months there, so they never care.The other factor is that I guess they smoke too much weed, so they always forget and mix the orders. I mean you can't be discouraged by what I wrote (I'm probably the most realistic voice here by the way)and you should try for yourself.I always enjoyed the food in Juicy Jones which is maybe not perfect or top class but generally good size portions & fresh for low amount of money. One day I will come back there again and I will have my salad in the cockroach family company...just kidding ;-)
