One expects interesting and excellent food in Barcelona. This restaurant did not disappoint us. The restaurant is a bit out of the tourist zone of La Rambla, and it was a nice walk from our hotel. The most interesting dish for me was the monkfish with sea urchin, although the black turnip and parsnip cream with sucking pig was a... More

We booked this after searching TA for nearby restaurants with good reviews. We were not disappointed. You can choose between a 5 or 7 course tasting menu. The 5 was enough for us. A superb array of flavours unfolded with mushrooms, home made sausages, artichoke, monkfish, mussels, beef across the first four courses. The final course was an amazing combination... More

The quality of the ingredients are great. The place looks formal but its quite frendly and warm. I had a degustation menu, and it was perfect. The... More

My friend and I had a great meal on Saturday night. The tasting menu is delicious. we had 5 courses but wish we had the 7 course instead. The food is innovative and well balanced. In term of value for money, it is difficulty to beat. Service is very good and attentive. Over all a great evening. Will definitely go... More

Osmosis is an outstanding restaurant. I booked it at the last minute when other, much more casual, plans fell through and I was a little worried that it might be too formal for our slightly worn-out group of travelers. But they greeted us warmly and gave us at a table where we could take in everything that was going on... More

We were recommended to try Osmosis by a friend who lives in Ibiza. We had the 5 course menu, however there were 3 other small courses served prior to the main courses which we were charged 3 Euros each for (which were nice). It was really lovely, but the room we were put into was elegant but lack ambience. You... More

We had great expectations based on the reviews and their own website. But have to admit that all was so much better than expected. The food was just incredibly suberb, as well as the wines (as a package recommended By the restaurant). What was very pleasing was that they told so much about the food and the wines and about...

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
