This restaurant is little, but beautiful with separated dining areas. We had the 7 courses tasting menu. The white vine served with the menu was perfect. At the beginning of the menu the chef arrived at our table to make sure he doesn't serve something we're allergic to or we don't like to eat (i liked that very much!). He... More

Went to Con Gracia but they were full. They recommended Osmosis, and even help us reserve a table. We are so thankful! Osmosis turned out to be a fantastic restaurant in terms of food quality and service. Very private atmosphere. And the price level was half of what we expected.

Two weeks, two trips to Osmosis, two outstanding meals. Each meal included at least one dish that we all declared the best we had ever had. If you are visiting Barcelona do not leave this restaurant out of your plans. Chef Frederic Fernandez has put together great food in a calming environment with delightful staff.

Havuing visited this restaurant earlier, this time was a little disappointment - Three out of seven foods were excellent, three "ok", one below that. Expected more. - Nice staff but as we were sitting in the back corner, we were time-to-time forgotten. That should not happen.

I don't know how many times I've been here but the meals are always excellent. The menu changes constantly and you will always experience new, interesting tastes. The menu is well balanced in tastes and textures, beautifully composed. And do let them choose your wines. You'll discover interesting new ones. The service is friendly and professional. If you are interesting... More

We took my parents here for dinner since we both were visiting Barcelona at the same time, and this restaurant was highly recommended to me from a friend living in Barcelona. From making my reservation to paying the bill, I can say the service here was outstanding. Our waiter took the time to explain to us each course and it's... More

The beginning of our dinner was a bit strange. We didn't know about the concept of the restaurant where you can basically go for the large or short menu (same one without one of the first courses and deserts). The Chef came and explained right away the dishes so it was lacking of an introduction. The quality of the food... More

My wife and I went to Osmosis now for the 3rd time and it was fantastic again. We have always had a great food and drink experience. The waiter that waited on us all 3 times always delivers and more. We will certainly be coming for a 4th.......WONDERFUL

Barcelona is a city with a reputation for gastronomy and we certainly started on the right foot when we arrived and dined at La Taverna del Clinic. Having read so many positive reviews about Osmosis I was looking forward to an equally high standard albeit a different style of cooking. Osmosis has only a small number of tables and offers... More
