Nice vegeterian tapas!

We had an assortment of tapas, they were really nice. My english cousin says "Muy bueno". The escalivada was really nice, we ate the suggested baked coliflower, it was delicious. I recommend it, really nice place to have dinner.

Easily the best meal that I've ever had at a restaurant! We looked at this place as my girlfriend is a vegetarian, booked a table for the two of us as it was a short walk from our hotel. Got there, wouldn't have found it if we weren't looking for it as it's tucked on a quiet side street. The... More

The food here is AMAZING ! It is so nice to find a place that is so creative with the menu. This is a vegetarian's dream restaurant ! Even though I sometimes eat meat, I think the menu is that good to appeal to non-vegetarian's as well. We came twice - had the pasta and the cauliflower dishes. Both were... More

Real nice intimate tapas restaurant, entirely vegetarian. We especially liked the cauliflower and pepper tapas! The restaurant has only a few tables, which is nice cause it feels really cozy but better book rather than just walk in. The restaurant was full on the day we went. If we hadn't booked we wouldn't have had a table. It was a... More

When you first walk in you may not even recognize it as a restaurant, but walk to the back and there are about 10 tables. The food is amazing, especially the mushroom croquets. Prices very reasonable. The best vegetarian restaurant I have eaten at in all of Spain. Don't hesitate go here.

Good vegetarian can be really hard to come by...we were lucky enough to make Sesamo our first restaurant when visiting Barcelona. Spectacular dishes, with fresh ingredients and spot-on seasoning. We made it our last meal before leaving Barcelona...chef Alfredo Marcus, I'm waiting for your recipe book.

We were a party of seven. Only one of us is a vegetarian so we went with some trepidation. The welcome and the friendly atmosphere set us in the right frame for a special evening. We all started with various drinks ranging from Aperol Spritzes to local beers all at reasonable prices and well concocted. Three of our party had... More

Lovely setting, friendly and very helpful waiter (his first night which you could tell as he was slightly nervous). We both had a fantastic curry that was quite spicy, but not too spicy. The belgian chocolate fondue was a simple but delightful dessert!

Cosy, friendly veggie restaurant with a great atmosphere, the best place I visited in Barcelona. The staff were all really helpful, we arrived at 8pm without a booking and were seated within about 15 mins. The 7 course tasting menu was delicious and something a bit different to try. Each course arrived promptly and was described to us. I would... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
