The tasting menu was delightful. Well rounded and decent value. With the best gnocchi I've ever had! Go!

My husband and I enjoyed the New Year's Eve fixed menu at Restaurante Sesamo. As one other reviewer says, it is a diamond in the rough and don't let your eyes deceive you. We enjoyed one of the best meals ever here. We cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. Each course was lovingly prepared, presented, and served. Also, each dish... More

Being that both my hubby and I are meat eaters this was a leap of faith from our 'Rough Guide' book I agree with other reviewers that, at night, the empty hall way type counter that greets you is off putting, but through the back is an initiate, fun and relaxed dining sensation! The waiter was smiley and engaging and... More

We visited this place on a recommend from a friend. We were not disappointed. We opted for the tasting menu which consisted of eight dishes for 25 Euros including wine. The dishes were of a very high standard and we really enjoyed the food. We are not vegetarians so wondered before we had the meal whether we would enjoy it... More

I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. When we arrived (after walking down an increasingly intimidating road) I was concerned when greeted by a small corridor of a bar. But we'd read the reviews and booked our New Years Eve meal in good faith so we persevered. I am so glad we did! My daughter (9) and I are both... More

We gave the Sesamo a try after it had been strongly recommended to us by a friend. Food was pretty good, yet not extraordinary at all, and whilst their service is friendly and kind, it took them ages to bring everything we order... including the check. I wouldn't even mention this if the place would have been busy, but there... More

The vegetarian tasting menu for €25,- including wine was the bomb! High standard cooking and a different eating experience than lots of other places.

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
