We sought out this restaurant after finding it on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and spoke good English. We had the tasting menu for 25 euros each which included 7 different tapas dishes to try, a dessert to share, water and 2 glasses of wines or 2 beers each. Really enjoyed every dish and the... More

Craving vegetables after a few days in Barcelona, so schlepped 30 minutes to this unpretentious small restaurant in the St Antoni area. We had the 25 Euro fully inclusive tasting menu (includes 2 beers or wines, 7 courses and a dessert). Everything was well prepared and presented - good contrasting tastes and textures, all served with a friendly smile, good... More

As a former meat-aholic I was dubious about trying an all veggie restaurant but, Sesamo was fantastic! The food, service and atmosphere was great. The bill (with loads of drinks) was a pleasant surprise too I´ll be back soon.

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
