Great little restaurant which has a menu which changes every two weeks. The combination of flavors is simply amazing. We had the 7 course menu which was so much food. It is hard to pick a favorite dish as the truffle rice, crab, ox tail and deserts were all Stars. There was not a single miss on the menu. The... More

I did like the cuisine over there. It's fusion Spanish cuisine. The menu is fixed, not a la carte. You choose, 7 courses if you are not that hungry, and 9 if you are more hungry. Eat Dinner took me 2 hours, my dinner had 7 courses because I wasn't that hungry and it was a beat too late for... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the seven course degustation menu tonight. Each course was perfectly matched with local wines, beautifully presented, fresh and delicious. Service was super friendly, unpretentious and our wonderful waiter gladly explained each course, ingredients and origins and characteristics of the wines. Totally lived up to expectations with wonderful flavours and textures. Timing of food was perfect, not rushed, but... More

And the collection of wines and they accuracy to the dishes were incredible. The wine enhanced the dish while the dish enhanced the wine. It is a Wow! Experience. Some of the wines... More

We were bought here by friends and what a treat! Had the tasting menu with the matching wine pairings and being a vegetarian in a high-end restaurant I wasn't really expecting it to be this great but really was. The food choice was original, tasted great, getting better with each course. The service was amazing and were also really accommodating... More

We went to Osmosis for a special meal and we certainly got that! We had the 7 course tasting menu with pairings and that would certainly be my recommendation. The service is wonderful, informative without being overbearing. Food was incredible and the wines served with the courses excellently paired and lovely and varied. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

An absolutely wonderful evening of eating at this small, beautifully decorated restaurant. The food was wonderful, the service excellent, and the wine delightful. Our server described every course, and the sommelier explained why he choose the wine for it. We got to taste wines we would never get in the US. And the bill floored us -- we expected it... More

The menu is a degustation menu of Catalan specialties, you can choose between 5 and 7 courses. The food is amazing, the service is very friendly. We had a private room upstairs which gave it a nice atmosphere.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
