Though from the outside not wordt a visit, inside it is one of the biggest surprises in Barcelona so far. Nice setting, nice people and... Goed food. Make a reservation in advance, so you wont be dissapointed at the door

We went here on recommendation from two different friends and enjoyed the tasting menu on our first meal out of our honeymoon. Alfredo, the chef, came over to chat several times, not only to explain his dishes but we had several great chats with him throughout the course of the meal. The tasting menu was 7 courses and a dessert... More

We looked this restaurant up, having seen the good reviews. We are three veggies and one meat eater and we all loved the food. We did not order starters and were given complimentary small glasses of watermelon gazpacho. May sound a bit ddogy, but tasted great. Our main courses were all flavoursome, including pad thai, wild mushroom agnliotti, mushroom croquettes,... More

All of us loved the taste of the various dishes including the presentation. Went for the 7 course tasting menu for 25 euros; was more like 9 courses. The gnocchi was soft and tasty covered with beetroot; the spinach and feta was great with the ginger and carrot garnish. I can go on and on but will leave it others... More

The gnocchi is freshly made and the pumpkin pie is good. Not cheap but it is a good place for nice vegetarian dishes which are healthy and mouthwatering.

Four of us booked a table here - one vegetarian and three meat-eaters. We did the tasting menu - very high quality and excellent value for money. Waiting staff were both efficient and friendly, and owner very personable. It was a very enjoyable evening. Restaurant somewhat off the usual tourist beaten track, but owner happy to order us a taxi... More

My family and I had a fantastic meal at Sesamo recently. My wife and I ordered the seven course tasting menu, which cost 25 euros each. One or two dishes were very good; the rest were superb. The main problem was that we actually received 9 or 10 dishes, so we could barely walk out the door after the meal.... More

Sesamo is a small veggie tapas restaurant serving good food at great prices. Without a referral, it would be easy to walk by without realising there is a restaurant towards the rear of what looks to be a small, local, bar; however, on entering, we were warmly welcomed by the barman and his colleagues. Food is cooked to order in... More

How anyone could give this restaurant anything but the highest rating is beyond me! I can only think that the few negative reviews were written here were do so by carnivores, who cannot imagine a meal with a slab of animal on their plate. |Let me state unreservedly that Sesamo is fanstastic, incredible and simply perfect.

The restaurant is cosy with not too much food choice but still acceptable. The vegan curry that I ordered was delicious and the presentation was fantastic. My sister, who was a bit reluctant to try vegan/vegetarian food, was also extremely happy with the pasta and curry. The dining area is not big and it gets quite loud when its busy.... More
