Really disappointed with the food here. Despite the brilliant reviews the quality of food was abysmal. Service was good and decor very modern and stylish but the food was simply not worth eating. We left and felt really confused about why the restaurant how such...good reviews.More

The great reviews for this restaurant were promising, but the actual food was not what I was hoping for. The presentation was good, but the flavor was rather boring. They just missed the opportunity to knock their dishes home with flavor. I would say that...was over-priced and over-rated.More

We had a wonderful evening, the food was very good and the staff was so kind! We had the tapas menu with 7 plates, water, 2 wine each and dessert to share. Especially the dessert was very delicious!

This was my third visit to Sesamo, but the first visit of my daughters and their friend (all vegetarian). We split the appetizers: beetroot humus; the padron peppers; the aubergines, and all we’re great. I had the cauliflower was my main for the second time,...and it was even better this time. My oldest daughter loved her pasta and the other two liked their Indian curry. We were getting ready to leave and have ice cream around the corner, when the waiter brought out the desert menu and the girls fell for it. The deserts were all outstanding, but I’d cite the peanut butter bomb and the chocolate truffle as the standouts. All in all, an incredible experience.More

Slightly off the beaten track, this small restaurant is 100% worth the effort. We went based on other reviews and it was a total highlight of our weekend! The staff were so friendly and attentive and the value for money is astounding. We chose the...vegan tasting menu for 30Euros per person - which includes 8 different tapas, 2 drinks, water, and dessert. The 8 courses just kept getting better and better, from the macadamia soup, beetroot gnocchi, fennel curry, and the incredible pumpkin pie!! We were in vegan heaven - everything was hot and tasty and beautifully presented. It allowed for a really beautiful evening in this intimate, cozy setting. A must!!More

You can't go wrong here between a tasting menu or ordering a la carte. We chose the latter and were largely satisfied with our choices beginning with soup all the way to dessert. They take their gin and tonics seriously here - very much worth...ordering.More

Decor needs some upgrading, don't let that chase you away. Food is tasty and fresh, vegetarian options are plenty

Well worth a visit.. busy cafe and really friendly staff with menu in English as well as Catalan. Seated upstairs on the outside terrace on a crisp December lunch, plenty of outdoor heaters to keep you warm. Ordered the veggie burger which came with caramelised...carrot/ginger and salad, with a Greek yogurt with berries and macadamia nuts plus a chia latte. Tasty and fulsome , for two persons €28 which is great valueMore

Don’t dare to go to Sesamo and leave without having its exquisite 7 dishes taste menu of vegetarian tapas! Every single plate is delicious, with the best in ingredients in town!! It’s awesome how you can eat so much flavours with just using vegetables. I...loved it!! Service and wine are excellent too. To go with a friend, family or a couple. Cozy and friendly! BEST of all: flan de dulce de leche for the dessert! A must for sure!!!More

Worst place ever. Few little things barely edible for more than thirty euro per person. Very bad crew

Hi, It is a bit hard to find, and according to TripAdvisor rules I cannot post a link in response. From what I remember, their menu changes often and they have a presence on Facebook but no website I can find. If you search... More
