Description: Sensi is located in the emblematic Gothic district of Barcelona, from which it takes its inspiration. It is a romantic and cosy restaurant with stone walls, exposed beams and handcrafted lighting, which, combined with the carefully selected soundtrack, creates a friendly and informal atmosphere. The menu is based on Mediterranean cuisine using the freshest seasonal ingredients, designed to delight the senses. Typical dishes include a duck pastry with potato and a port reduction; grilled king prawns with mango chutney and fine noodles, vegetable and sweet chilli; or marinated tuna tartar with sesame oil and crispy leeks. Its modern menu together with professional and attentive service makes Sensi the ideal place for any kind of evening out.

I had booked Sensi Bistro but due to some problem (not sure exactly what) they had to close and our booking was transferred to Sensi Tapas which was not a problem. We all loved it here, very busy and buzzy atmosphere, great service and fantastic tapas, would definitely recommend.

We went to Sensi on the recommendation of a friend who lived in Barcelona a few months of the year, so were totally unsure of what to expect as all we had was a name and address. We were warned that if we didn't make a reservation there would be a long wait but that it would be worth it.... More

Great selection of food. You select as many dishes as you want 2 -3 per person recommended. We had 5 between the 2 of us and were very satisfied. Great atmosphere, very busy. The waiters bring a couple of plates at a time and are very good at clearing away and keeping an eye on their tables.

When it comes to great local cuisine this place meets all expectations. With seating for only 40 diners the chef exceeds the gastronomique requirements of any chef, great local ingredients well cooked & presented, the delicate flavours in melt in the mouth dishes that one feels have been prepared for a home dinnerr party, except you are the guest!

It's hard to imagine, but on many walls in Barcelona, you find the above statement...but when you visit the city, you do not feel unwelcome, until you come to Sensi...at Sensi this statement is actively practiced! From the best table being kept for the "locals", to the entire treatment while you were there. While the food is decent, the prices... More

Very good food here - but you need to book. We did and we had the table as long as we wanted - weren't rushed at all on a very busy Friday night. It does a lot of traditional tapas but also an oriental style of tapas. Its not exactly cheap but not outrageous either.
