    The food here is outstanding, so full of flavour and every single dish was exceptional. Truly one of the best meals we have ever had. Also, some very interesting cocktails. Adam in particular provided excellent service; helping us to navigate the menu with a friendly, helpful approach that paired food and drink perfectly. The setting is lovely with nice views across a rapidly evolving part of London. There is quite a buzz in the restaurant, but we don’t find the noise level overpowering. Thank you again to Adam for your excellent service, and making a truly memorable night for us!

    We had a lovely evening with you. Our waiter Adam made the evening as he was so helpful, giving us great advice in making our menu decisions, and was attentive throughout the evening, looking after us in every way. He seemed to know what we wanted before we asked for it and made the whole experience very easy and enjoyable. The food and drink was delicious and arrived very quickly which was as great for us. We enjoyed a few dishes we have never eaten before which made the experience all the more interesting. Thank you for a lovely evening! We would love to dine with you again.

    We had a girls' lunch on Saturday at 12:30. Although it wasn't busy and we were the second table, the experience wasn't great. Four of us received our food on time, but three friends waited an extra 10 minutes. Our food blogger friend wasn't pleased, especially since it was her birthday celebration. The waiter seemed confused, taking 5-8 minutes for our order for six adults and one child. The food was just okay, with a simple menu lacking options for kids. The place was uncomfortably hot, making it less of a relaxing experience. Ultimately, we left to celebrate elsewhere; the pink interior wasn't worth a return visit...such a shame

    Mixed experience celebrating my partners birthday. We have visited Joia last night and were welcomed by very warm reception and provided a table with the great view on Battersea PS. That set the perfect tone for the evening. The restaurant vibes contributed to lovely ambiance. However, the promising start took a hit the moment we started ordering. We’ve ordered a bottle of white wine but it appeared to be undrinkable(too warm) and then we were told that all sparkling and white wine are in the same malfunctioning fridge so we opted to whiskey. There was no Oban, no Nikka so we got lucky that at least Hibiki was available. We were assigned a waiter trainee with 0 wine knowledge and basic menu awareness. While he was very polite, and tried his best, the general service and professionalism no way corresponded to 15% service charge and the level of venue. To be fair it’s absolutely not what you expect from the upscale venue with the great chief. Food was nice. Seabass Crudo was terrific, Prawn Orza was a delight, octopus salad was tasty and flavorsome, it was a level above the rest of experience we had. The only let down were patatas bravas but it’s minor compared to everything else. After we finished our mains, we asked for the dessert menu. Our waiter completely lost any interest in us and switched to some other table. It took us 15 minutes to get any attention and after I pinged another waiter who took our order professionally and did all right. Fair to say the chocolate mousse was fantastic. There was no candle or anything though I told the waiter at start that my wife has a birthday that day. It was OK for us but shows how inattentive and amateurish the service was. To summarize, some things need to be fixed in the restaurant. We enjoyed our evening largely thanks to delicious food and some other staff. But general experience is severely flawed by the issues I described above.

I’m delighted to hear that you enjoyed the warm reception, the ambience, and the delicious dishes such as the sea bass crudo, prawn orzo and octopus salad.

    The view is spectacular, the brunch was pleasant. "Instagram Influencers" sitting at the next table were thrilled with the decor and food. They staged and document every moment of their visit. The staff is young, congenial, and attentive. The food is well prepared regional cuisine. Desserts may disappoint. The guitarist played soft rock.

    Joia is beautiful with an outstanding view, the food is great, but despite the staff being super friendly the service is quite haphazard and doesn’t justify the price of the food. Wouldn’t put me off going again though

    Unimpressive views of areas in London with no views of the Power Station. Poor service at the bar so drinks were served at the table. Food portion size unexplained so massively over ordered with unnecessary leftovers and a high food bill. Food tasty but over salted. Be careful in the unisex loos…Men use the loos as a urinal and leave their cubicle doors open!

    It was my partners birthday and since a long time that we expected to come to Jóia. From the fantastic views, to a warm welcoming and delicious food, our experience couldn’t have been any better. Adam was our waiter for the night, always with a smile, knowledgeable about the menu and listening to our tastes and advising the best dishes accordingly. He kept a keen eye on our table, always around and available for any request, refilling our wine glasses, replacing our plates so that flavors of different dishes wouldn’t mix and we could enjoy the best of all creations. Cherry on the cake was still to come when he surprised my partner with a cute chocolate cake with ‘Happy Birthday’ written on it, before offering to escort us to the bar so that we could enjoy drinks and life music from the DJ downstairs. Absolutely outstanding and Adam made the whole experience even more memorable! We will certainly be back.

    Only average I am afraid. Also it was a bit fish and seafood heavy and as one of our guests wasnt really a fish or seafood lover it definitely spoilt it a bit for them. I think if you are going to dictate the menu in the way they did you have to make it extra special. It wasnt.

    We really enjoyed the experience, Sunday Lunch, attentive service and tasty food. Anyway, I would like to leave some notes. Pan con Tomate should be toasted, made thinner, and mainly, the cut into 4, not 3 to make sense and be easily divisible. Main courses served on dessert plates didn't seem appropriate to me, especially because Lamb has bones... The dessert was served on different plates, which doesn't seem appropriate for the place. finally 15% service charge seems too much to me, the usual 12.5 would be enough But overall we did enjoy it. Will come back for “à la carte” meal

    Wait staff were fabulous and cheerful. Went out of their way to be helpful and of assistance. Some items on the menu could have been a little more descriptive like the fact that the seabass crudo is rare, or the Spanish omelette is served with runny eggs, not to everyone’s taste but other than that the food was fantastic. Octopus salad was delicious as was seabass served whole but deboned. A very enjoyable experience. We would definitely come again.

    Meh, nice views and that is about it. Bottom line it is a ridiculously expensive ‘tapas’ restaurant with Michelin star prices and high street chain quality. Staff were friendly but service is slow and totally unorganised (management, training rather lacking). The belly pork is ridiculously overpriced for a tiny size main and the bacalhau was an impressive culinary failure - how to make a salt cod dish taste of nothing, wow! They’d run out of both our first and second choice desserts (told each time only after ordering). We were offered a free choice of one of the remaining desserts in the end. Which was just as well because the pudim abade was particularly uninspiring. There you go. Make your own mind up. But don’t say I didn’t warn you ;)

    Qualitative food was very good but it was not value for money.

    The food at Joia is amazing, the sharing steak was the best part of meal. It was cooked to perfection. Love the atmosphere and decor of the restuarant. The bar area is really nice and great if you want to have a drink before going to your table

    The vibe is very nice and the food was very tasty but if vegetarian or vegan the choices for food are fairly limited but very tasty nonetheless

    Great food, great service and ambiance. I would maybe say the music is a bit too loud, which interferes with conversations.

    We had a lovely dinner at Joia, it was made special for my birthday with a table which had a great view. I had requested this so I really appreciated the restaurant was able to accommodate. Our waiter Adam was amazing and made the whole experience even better! :)

    Beautiful location, amazing view and pleasant interior decoration. Food is very good. Table service was poor. Half of the staff seemed untrained which caused us wrong table allocation and long waiting time to be served.

    I celebrated my birthday here with a group of friends - I requested the best table in the house in the comments of my booking and this was most certainly met. We had a gorgeous table, right by the window, overlooking the battersea power station. We sat very comfortably with a beautiful view. The restaurant interior itself was also very art-deco and trendy. Food wise - have to be honest, the starters were a bit 'meh'. The tortilla, padron peppers and sourdough were nothing special. However as someone with Spanish heritage, who always eats this food, I guess it's difficult to impress me with these dishes. The main dishes on the other hand were very good - we went for the pork belly, bacalao and the carabinero prawns. All of these were delcious, despite being on the expensive side. Our favourite dish was hands down, the carabinero prawns. We shared this between 4 (along with other dishes). So, so tasty. We asked if we could add on another prawn but was told this would cost £20! So definitely didn't. Desserts - we shared the basque cheesecake, chocolate and olive oil and another (which I forget the name of!). All very enjoyable. The service was mostly good. It was lovely having our server mix up our dishes on our table and clean out the prawns for us. We also had a second server who was perhaps less experienced so we sometimes had an elbow in our face / leaning over our dishes etc. But this wasn't too much of a nuisance. Atmosphere on a Thursday evening was buzzing, fun loud music playing so we felt like we had to shout across our table a little but it was good vibes. Would recommend this place for a special occasion, be prepared to spend, and perhaps skip on the starters and have desserts instead.

I'm so glad to see you enjoyed the desserts and that our service contributed positively to your evening. We look forward to welcoming you back for more memorable experiences in the future.

    Whilst the food, service and decor at JOIA Restaurant & Bar is good, I would say it is extremely overpriced. Lunch for 2 without out too much alcohol (1 aperitif each and 1 bottle of wine), came to £350 ex dessert and coffee which we weren't offered. Food was tasty, but nothing to write home about. I would say Brindisa is as good, if not better. Having done it once, I don't think there's a need to return.
