We visited Sesamo during our visit in Barcelona and it was easily the food highlight of our trip. We have been to vegetarian restaurants before but nothing came close to the creative tapa dishes that arrived at our table. Every dish we ordered (around 18) were incredible! I highly recommend the fig and Brie tapa and the peanut bomb for... More

Vegetarian restaurant. We had the 7 course tapas menu with local wine. It was very delicious. The waitress was friendly and explained the different tapas as they were served.

My cousin and I ate here during a weekend stay in Barcelona. We're both mostly vegetarian; in addition, I'm a rather picky eater and she has to avoid gluten. We both loved the food. I especially recommend the unusual but perfect beetroot-hazelnut gnocchi, but everything we ate was lovely--it was our favorite meal of the trip. I also loved the... More

Sesamo offers vegetarian and vegan food. Some dishes in the form of tapas. The offered food sounded rather creative and truly vegetarian - not just replacing meat with something else. My dish also sounded interesting, tastewise I expected a little more. It was certainly good, but not mind-blowing. The atmosphere of the place could be nicer (in the front part... More

This is our second visit to Sesamo, first time was in 2013. It's a small and wonderful restaurant servering vegetarian tapas. This time we had the shared 7 course tapas menu. Some really nice dishes and nice service. Sadly not so good wine. The electricity went out for 15 minutes during the dinner, but the staff solved it with a... More

Let me say what an incredibly cute restaurant and what amazing service and the food is over the top amazing. We got there a bit early and had a drink by the bar. Sangria was spot on! The dining area provides a very cozy setting. You have options of ordering ala caret or the tasting menu. I'm a vegetarian and... More

Its great to find a vegetarian tapas - my husband wanted me to have lots of choice so we could share anything we ordered. he is a meat eater - but he loved it too! we opted for the taster menu - 7 small courses plus 2 glasses of wine each for €25 each. It's a small, understated place with... More

Food was delicious, both my husband (loves meat) and I (vegetarian) were able to thoroughly enjoy the meal. Quaint little place with great quality food, have recommended this to all our friends and everyone agrees - one of the best meals we had in Barcelona! Highly recommended.

Absolutely fabulous veggie food in a beautiful setting with delightful staff for reasonable prices. Let's just say this is the only place we ate in twice during our week in Barcelona.

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.
