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.

A perfect small restaurant in the very heart of Barcelona. The menu is changed every 2 weeks. U can choose between 2 sets 5 and 7 dishes. Both are perfect. Nice service - the waiters tell about every dish good selection of wines For dinner should be booked in advance

The service and the food was absolutly perfect. We felt really comfortable and welcome. I can strongly recommend Osmosis to anyone visiting Barcelona.

Visited Barcelona for a few days and this was probably the highlight of the whole trip. We booked the 7 course tasting menu with wine pairing which was a delight from start to finish!

I can only endorse the rave reviews for this culinary experience. Absolutely top shelf. You have a choice between a 5 course menu and one of 7 courses. The menus are set according to seasonal availability, but will happily be adjusted to cater for allergies etc. We took the 5 course, and were very satisfied. Staff were excellent, knowledgable and...

This is a lovely intimate restaurant with great service, knowledgeable waiters and fantastic food. We had the five course tasting menu with the wine pairing and an extra chocolate dessert because the waiter said I looked so excited when chocolate was mentioned. Now I just need an excuse to go back to Barcelona and visit again. Better than some Michelin... More

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.
