This avant-garde restaurant in Denia not only impressed with exceptional dishes but also introduced visitors to the unique culinary journey that is Ossadía. From inventive creations to cherished flavors, Ossadía offers an unforgettable dining experience that goes beyond traditional cuisine.

Dexcaro Denia’s participation at Alicante Gastronómica extended beyond mere attendance; they actively engaged in various competitions, impressively making it to the finals. This achievement not only highlights their culinary prowess but also their dedication to pushing the boundaries of gastronomy.
We cannot underestimate the invaluable support from remarkable women who played a pivotal role in Dexcaro’s presence at this edition of the event. Maje, Marina Vegan, and Gema Amor, each in their own right, lent their unwavering support, contributing to the restaurant’s standout presence.
Now, let’s delve into the culinary marvels offered by Dexcaro. Their menu is a journey through taste and texture, a symphony of flavors that transcends borders. From the delicate intricacies of Chinese and Japanese cuisine to the bold and vibrant tastes of Peruvian, French, and Mediterranean dishes, Dexcaro Denia creates a culinary fusion that is both innovative and tantalizing.
Ossadía: Where Culinary Art Turns into Magic
But that’s not all; Dexcaro Denia is not the only brainchild of the culinary genius, Chef Carlos G Moreno.

Ossadía’s dining room is nestled within the kitchen itself, accommodating a maximum of 8 guests for an exclusive and personal journey into the world of gastronomy. Here, the cuisine transcends boundaries, drawing inspiration from diverse cultures around the world, including China, Japan, Peru, France, and the Mediterranean.
A Culinary Journey to France with Giraldo Oyster
Step into a culinary adventure at Ossadía as we take you on a voyage to France through a captivating dish – the Giraldo oyster, prepared in two exquisite ways. One variation sees the oyster lightly kissed by the flames, while the other is a symphony of flavors featuring vinegar, sherry, red wine, rice, and apple. This dish, while initially electrifying to the palate, transforms into a harmonious and delicate sensation, thanks to the addition of a velvety Els Marges de la Marina Alta wine sabayon that perfectly complements the pairing. Prepare to be transported to the shores of France with every decadent bite.
A Journey from China to Galicia with Galician-Style Octopus Wanton
At Ossadía, we invite you to embark on an exhilarating gastronomic journey from China to Galicia through our exquisite creation: the Galician-Style Octopus Wanton. This dish is crafted using the juices from the octopus’s own cooking process, seasoned with paprika, and garnished with a touch of lemon-infused oil. But the culinary adventure doesn’t stop there; the accompanying soup is an odyssey in itself, beginning with the juices from shrimp heads and culminating in a Chinese-inspired broth that will transport you to two corners of the world with every bite.
The Final Savory Delight of the Ossadía Menu
The last savory course of the Ossadía menu is an absolute culinary gem you won’t want to miss. It’s a sublime dish featuring duck and celery that delights the senses. The duck, cooked with a hint of cinnamon and mustard, is served alongside a grilled corn cob, accompanied by an exquisite demiglace crafted from its own carcasses, fresh celery, and Palomino fino wine. This savory dish is a true symphony of flavors and textures that culminates with a masterful touch: a Ferrero Rocher-inspired treat of foie gras mi-cuit with mistela and Valencian orange. It’s the perfect finale to an unforgettable culinary experience at Ossadía.
The Ossadía Experience: A Unique Culinary Journey
The Ossadía experience is much more than just a meal; it’s a culinary journey that begins at the Urban Food Bar and culminates in the Ossadía menu.
On this journey, you don’t simply dine at the private dining table; you embark on a prior exploration through the bar and the kitchen before reaching Ossadía itself. The essence of our cuisine is rooted in techniques such as curing, fermenting, pickling, brining, and locally-sourced ingredients, like the Moroccan lemon (captured in the photo), which takes up to 4 months to develop its diverse nuances before becoming a part of our culinary delight.
Every aspect, from the food to the beverages, is distinguished by its uniqueness. For instance, the vermouth from Nodus winery is a one-of-a-kind experience with Bobal grapes, red berries, and cinnamon, adding a special touch to this thrilling gastronomic journey.
In conclusion, Dexcaro Denia’s triumphant presence at Alicante Gastronómica, led by the remarkable Chef Mary Anne, demonstrates their commitment to innovation and their dedication to redefining the culinary landscape.
