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

Loved this place! Ties for my favorite Vegan eats while in Barcelona. One of the best places I've eaten on any of my travels, period. The menu is Vegan and Vegetarian tapas. We ordered the tasters menu for three and had seven tapas plus Belgium Chocolate "fondu" for dessert. Yum!! The standout dishes were the Peppers in Chile & Lime,... More

My son & future daughter-in-law took us (and her parents) to this restaurant, telling us about the tasting menu, but not that it was vegetarian. We sat down, and the chef described the restaurant and the tasting. All of us decided to try the tasting menu. While we were waiting for the first course, I asked my son if he'd... More

Sesamo didn't deliver on our expectations. It far exceeded them. We arrive in Barcelona late afternoon and after resting wanted something simple and unpretentious. We ordered the 7 course tasting menu. Somehow, taking into account the watermelon soup amuse bouche, the bread and tomato side and the tiramisu desert, 12 plates of food arrived at the table. The plates were... More

We went for the “Tasting Menu” – a taste palette of 7 different courses. It was a wonderfull evening, every time a new course with sometimes 1, 2 or 3 different dishes. Very tasy, creative and surprising: like the “Smoky Watermelon gazpacho”, the “Puff pastry rolls filled with feta cheese and spinach & topped with a brunoise of ginger and... More

We were staying in an apartment so we decided to try sesamo after checking the reviews. We also had the 7 course taster menu and most of the dishes were excellent. Though not vegetarians we were very impressed (except for the potatoes with spinach and mango) with all the dishes. The price also includes wine (not that great) and dessert.... More

Alfredo is the warm and engaging (and English speaking) chef behind Sesamo. We let him choose our dishes and we loved them all. The food is incredibly fresh and flavorful. The mushroom croquettes melted in our mouths. The beet gnocchi was unlike anything I've ever tasted and it was beautiful and delicious. I highly recommend a trip to this small,... More

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
