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

What a lovely evening! The food was fabulous and the wine pairings were great. My two favorite courses (hard to pick one!) were the smoked octopus and the rabbit confit. One of the fun parts of our trip to Spain has been drinking the local wine varietals that aren't exported to the US, and Osmosis's wine pairing was a fun... More

We were a group of 4 who booked in for Sunday lunch. From start to finish this was one of the best meals we ever had. We all went for the seven course tasting menu (for only 50 euros), let the waiter recommend some excellent Spanish wines (he was great about it - the wines were superb, we drank a... More

For ?35 a person, we definitely were not expecting a full blown degustation dinner. We were treated to that and more - the produce and execution of each course were exquisite and top notch, with daring combinations that just sent off fireworks on our tastebuds. The waiters were also friendly but attentive. If we had more time we would definitely... More

This place is a bit off the beaten path but well worth the effort to find. They offer a tasting menu which was excellent. And the price was not bad relative to the quality of the food and service. I would recommend this place for a nice evening dinner with your significant other.

Had a wonderful 7 course tasting menu for Sunday lunch. Staff were really friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu, and recommended wines were delicious and excellent value. Highly recommend a visit, we will definitely be back.

Chose this restaurant having seen the great reviews on Tripadvisor and am happy to add a great review of our own. It's a small restaurant so you'll definitely need to book in advance but from the minute you arrive you're made to feel very welcome by the friendly yet professional staff. We didn't need to make any changes to the... More
