After hearing many great things about Sésamo, and as a vegetarian living in Barcelona I finally found the opportunity to try it out for myself. We went one night last week and the restaurant was fairly busy, which is always a good sign. We opted for the taster menu, 25 Euros per person for 8 or 9 small courses and... More

We went to this restaurant based on reviews from trip advisor and our guide book. We chose the taster menu. €25 euros each for 7 small courses, two glasses of wine each and a bottle of water. The food was delicious and interesting, the staff are really proud of the food they serve and the atmosphere was really relaxed and... More

First off, the service was much more American style than many of the other restaurants in Spain - with explanations and suggestions and more attentive service. The food - innovative vegetarian - creative offerings that are worth trying. Luckily we had a big group and were able to share almost everything. They even offered up portion sizes specifically designed for... More

I am visiting Barcelona with my son, both of us living in England and both quite passionate about food and seriously carnivorous. After a day of travel and a tiring long walk around this glorious city, we were hungry. We were looking for a highly recommended restaurant not too far from our hotel and Sesamo came up strongly on TripAdvisor.... More

Great food - we chose the tasting menu. Each dish was delicious. It was fairly light, which was enough for me but left my boyfriend hungry after an hour, so if you have a big appetite maybe choose a couple of starters! Service was good but became slower as the evening went on as our waiter also seemed to be... More

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.
