Have you ever accidentally taken your bacon loving toddler to a trendy vegetarian tapas restaurant late at night? We can now say that we have. We stumbled upon Sesamo and were so glad we did! The food there is absolutely amazing. Padron peppers are my new favorite food. They brought us a small plate of complimentary peppers at first and... More

After looking at the reviews and seeing the restaurant being featured in the top-notch tapas in Barcelona, we were let down by the portions on the tasting menu (50EUR for two). As we were not an even number of people, we were told we had gotten more variety when we asked about the tiny portions of food we were given.... More

The $25 tasting menu is such a value. You might think it won't be much food, but I Was stuffed. Such care and artistry put into the food. Great to interact with the chef in such a small restaurant that he brought his food out. This is a DO NOT MISS even if you are not a vegetarian.

We arrived a group of 6 and had the tasting menu. Couldn't have been better and amazing value for money. Highly reconvened for anyone not just vegetarians.

Went here having been recommended by a cycle tour rep! Vegetarian restaurant that catered for my wife who needs gluten free food without batting an eye! We had the 25 euro taster menu which comes with bottled water and glasses of wine each. Highlights for me were the baked cauliflower, lentil curry and pumpkin pie with JDaniels as a desert.... More

A bit off downtown but easy to get to by metro from the Sant Antoni station, this place is easy to miss by how it looks from outside. What first looks like an unassuming small bar has a nice dining area at the back, with vegetarian culinary delights served for modest prices. 25 euros per person for 7 course sampling... More

My wife and I went on a Sunday night and loved this place. After being led to our table we were told about the specials and the 7 Course tasting menu. We asked if the tasting menu could be vegan and were told yes that wouldn't be a problem, so we both ordered that. For 25 euros (!!) each we... More

Found this place after searching for veggie restaurants in Barcelona, as my sister and I were visiting from the UK and we're both vegetarian. Very pleased we chose the 25 Euro tasting menu - we think it was supposed to be 7 courses but actually it was more like 8 / 9 if you counted the amuse bouche served between... More

Ok, we sit there ( we are me, my wife and my baby). The owner says that we can both choose something we want " à la carte" or the 25 euro menu ( consisting of 7 "dishes" as they call it). I choose to get the 7 dishes menu, while I suggest my wife to to choose something à... More

We went here on a warm recommendation from friends from Israel. They were right! This restaurant is a little out of the way, quite a long walk from the Ramblas, but well worth the effort. To get to it you have to go through a rather run-down but not inimical area. We started from Placa de Catalunya which is why... More
