41 Degrees Website

letahaa Apr 19, 2012 12:49 PM

I am going to Barcelona in mid-May, and have been waiting to make reservations at 41 Degrees until the days opened up for my trip, but now it appears the website has changed, and I can't figure out how to make reservations. It doesn't look like their reservation system is up right now. Has anyone else tried recently? I also sent them an email through the website, but they have yet to respond.

    41 Degrees worked perfectly for me on first try - so teething issues may be over.
    (But the Tickets site seems to be stuck at Aug4 - despite the promised 60 day advance booking promised).

      Just realized - Tickets is closed for most of August (after Aug 4).

      I am also going mid-may. Yes, the website did change. I can tell you it USED to say you had to make reservations EXACTLY (to the minute) 90 days before. Which frustrated me as I did not try to do this until 60 days before, which was too late. I am trying other methods of getting in but as of now I do not have much hope. I did get into to tickets so I am happy for that

        New website is rather unhelpful in that it doesn't tell you when they table are released. Presumably it is still 60 days but if anyone come across anything different do let us all know.

            Thank you very much that's extremely helpful. Seems very curious the way that tables are being released. Bit baffling but there's nothing to do but sit there clicking refresh!

              At the risk of labouring this thread the website seems to be offering availability about a week in advance - still bookings available this week.

              Not completely clear when they release the bookings onto the website so if anyone has done any detective work would be interested to hear.

                this is now for non-refundable 250 euro tickets to their 'show'

                  Yes that is a really rather unpleasant way of doing things. I see no reason to deviate from credit card for reservation/cancellation policies.

                    i'm really bummed out. I tried all of yesterday to book the only table for 2 available during my trip to Barcelona. i got a message that neither confirmed or denied my reservation - it just said to wait and see if i get an email. if not, try to contact the restaurant.

                    i didn't get the email and called my credit card company. nothing went through, so i went through the same process with every credit card and debit card i had. nothing. so i wrote them - i didn't get much help, just a response telling me to make sure i do the obvious (don't hit the back button, don't take too long entering my credit card info - yes, i know how the internet works).

                    anyway i went back to try again and now that table is gone. i emailed to see if a table for 2 might open up while i'm there but doubt it. i had read that some online purchases in spain will often have errors with american cards due to differences in security software. sucks i missed out on this experience because of technical difficulties. if only they had normal reservation policies - i most certainly would not have been a no-show :(

                      almost exact same thing happened to me :(

                        i ended up booking a table for 2 this morning for september.

                        it was a pretty frustrating process. Even though there was availability, when putting in all my info, it kept saying that the table was not available. After multiple attempts, it allowed me to get to the billing page. After about 30 minutes, was finally able to get through the entire thing and got an email confirmation.

                        200 euros a pop as well...probably cheaper the closer we get, but would rather spend the money rather than miss out!

          The reservation system seems to still be on the fritz.

              Reservation system is back on-line. Just for fun, I tried booking a table for next Tuesday and they had room. so it might not be as hot a ticket as it used to be.

          Hi Letahaa, I'm having exactly the same problem too - sorry to be replying and not helping but if you do hear back from them by email could you post the response here to let us know?

          I tried asking through our hotel concierge who said that they no longer take reservations and are walk-in only but I find that hard to believe as it doesn't make sense with the new menu concept, buying tickets etc.
