Made a reservation for a Saturday evening at 8.30pm. Restuarant is hidden away a little bit in the alleys of the Gothic area, so a little help from Google map to find. Was promptly seated at our table when we arrived. Restuarant was very busy....In the Gothic area of town so of course the restuarant was mostly a mix of tourists (like us) and some locals. Spanish food. Don't confuse Sensi with Japanese food! We ordered a number of tapas dishes including seafood paella and a dessert dish. Food quality was good and tasty. Staff were polite, professional and efficient. They gave us a small basket of bread for the table. However they replaced the bread basket without asking if we wanted more bread. The cost of bread was only EUR1 which is not crazy high, but always good to ask first if we wanted more bread (which we did not). Anyway EUR1 extra for bread is not going to bankrupt us. We spent about 2 hours in the restuarant. It was busy in the restuarant throughout this time. They played music in the restaurant. Total bill was around EUR70 for 2 of us. Good atmosphere. Good night outMore

Do need to book, really easy to book online. The service and atmosphere was nice and the rest of my party really enjoyed the food but unfortunately after reading it was ok for vegans it really wasn't. There were two options that were offered that...could be made vegan and they were not very exciting so would not recommend. The rest of my party (non vegan) definitely would recommend!More

We're from the UK and booked online and then got a call a few hours later asking if it was ok to move the booking half an hour later. Nice touch, seeing as we're abroad and most other places would have just sent an automated...email. Staff were good fun and service was spot on. Food was top notch, great variety and choice on the menu and cocktails were big on flavour too. The atmosphere is great as well - good music and interior design, etc. Good value for money. I'd book ahead though as walk-ins were being turned away as they were fully booked.More

We recently visited Barcelona and were recommended a visit to Sensi by a friend who used to live in Barcelona. What can I say wow wow wow, we booked and managed to get a table on the day (we arrived at the wrong Sensi and...the host helpfully walked us round to Gourmet... Thank you). The food and drink was outstanding from presentation, taste, service and staff. Everyone was so helpful and friendly offering recommendations and there favorite dishes. I like Tapas but this wasn't just tapas this was tapas with a twist. It was that good we didn't even take a pic of the food. Thanks for having us and your now on our top recommend list for friends in the UKMore

This restaurant was recommended by so many people so me and my friend thought we would try it out for dinner one night. We most defiantly would not recommend this restaurant, we ordered 4 tapas dishes between us and didn't enjoy any of them, they...also come up very small.

We had a recommendation to try this location so we had a reservation for our first night in Barcelona. Having just come from London, I was looking forward to some tapas and we were not disappointed. There were four in our party so we ordered...about six items that were delivered over time. The tomato paste bread was outstanding. We tried it from a few other locations, but none were as good. There was also a sausage plate that was outstanding. The food was all so good that we had to go back a couple nights later. Amber waited on us and also gave us some other recommendations which proved to be excellent. This food tasted great for a midwestern United States guy.More
