Amazing vegetarian and vegan tapas

We both had the surprise menu with included 8 different vegetarian tapas, two glasses of wine each, a bottle of water and... read more

I am not a vegetarian but would happily be one if I can have food like this everyday. We had the 'taste menu' for 25 euros each, which included two drinks. A number of different dishes were served and they all taste delicious. Was very pleased to discovered Sesamo as we had a dreadful and expensive meal the night before... More

It was a very pleasant dinner in a quaint, romantic setting. The food was delicious and staff was friendly. I would go back again.

While not a vegetarian I love finding a "can't miss" vegetarian restaurant -- not just a nice good place for vegetarians to eat out, but that experience where you are blown away by every creative, satisfying, and delectable morsel. My list of "can't miss" just grew by one to include Restaurant Sesamo, along with The Moosewood (Ithaca, NY) and Greens... More

Came here with a vegan friend, who was well catered for by the broad selection of veggie and vegan offerings, some of which were pretty standard fare - roasted aubergine, pepper and goat's cheese bruschetta, lentil curry - and others of which were a little more imaginative - a whole roast cauliflower with tahini and pomegranate sauce - but all...

We had a brilliant meal at Restaurante Sesamo. We decided to go for the set menu of 7 tapas dishes, two alcoholic drinks each, a bottle of water and a desert for 25 euros each! It was delicious, the best meal we had in Barcelona

Went to Sesamo on a Saturday night (after 5/10 minutes trying to find it!), make sure you make a reservation as we only got in because a table literally just finished. A small, quaint little place with friendly and helpful staff and more importantly delicious food. There is the option to do a tasting menu or pick from the menu... More

Went in June 2015, with 4 carnivores and 2 pescitarians. Everyone agreed this was the best food we had all eaten in a long time. Went for the amazing taster menu, 7 courses, 2 desserts and 2 drinks for 25 euros! They even have a vegan tasting menu. All of us were completely stuffed and emmensely satisfied by the end.... More

I was really excited to try vegetarian tapas in Barcelona and decided to come hear after searching on Yelp. It's a nice romantic ambience inside, and the food is a bit fancy. I wasn't very satisfied with the tapas though. We ordered a soup to share and was a bit disappointed when a cold/juice-like/small-sized soup was brought out to us.... 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.
