“Fantastic again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

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.

“Mixed feelings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

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.

“Constantly excellent with new dishes every visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

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 in first class Catalan cuisine, do eat here.

“Creative presentation and combinations of food from Barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

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 origins. They also let us do the wine pairing, but with miniature quantities which I always appreciate.
Each dish was presented beautifully, and also tasted wonderful. It was easy to understand how the chef wanted to incorporate Catalan/ Barcelona cuisine, while being creative and modern.

The main room of the restaurant only has a handful of tables which makes the experience intimiate and almost peaceful.

This is a must visit!

“Good quality-price ratio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

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 was very good and the service correct (the Brazilian waiter was very energetic and positive). The Chef came back few times and gave great explanations about the different wines we were tasting, he definitely knows a lot about that and we appreciated a lot.

At the end, the quality-price ratio was excellent and I missed just a little something to have the want-to-come-back effect.
