“Good atmosphere as well”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Good fun, good atmosphere and good food. What else to say? Came across the restaurant by mistake and 2 days later went back again to try more dishes. I recommend to book as it fills up early.

“SENSI BRSTRO IS FAR BETTER THAN SENSI TAPAS”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Sandra and I were in Barcelona from Monday to the Friday by chance of the week of the World Communications Festival 24th to 28th February . We first went SENSI Tapas which is located on C.Ample. They were very busy but we managed to get a seat Wright by the kitchen serving hatch. We were really inmpressed how quick the chief's worked and front house we're good as well. Polite. courteous and spoke incredable English. Also I order the Normandy Stew tapas which was gorgeous. The waiter said it's a fusion as the owner were from Normandy and it was the subtle influence on Catalonia cuisine. However we were bombard by baskets of bread and water. Which we New we would have to pay for however this wasnt stated by the waiters plus our tapas was brought out in funny orders. This left us a bit blagged by the tourist trap and deflated regards tapas flavours plus we had to order a minimum of 2 or 3 tapas dishes which also is not the Barcelona way. !! Were its usual the norm to have a dish and a drink then go to the next restaurant/bar.
However the front house at BISTRO which is at the top of C.Regamir. The waiters were brilliant, NO UP SALE on bread PLUS food was even better than SENSI TAPAS. Better chief Presumably. And the dishes were served in a good order by chance maybe or well observing staff. Advise go enjoy but try both bars to see what you think.. :)

“Good tapas, nice busy atmosphere ”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

Go for the pork and the spinach served with a very tasty strawberry/vinegar? dressing. Quick service, not too formal and lots of people. Busy after 8 pm. Good! Level up the settings with better chairs/upscaled decor?

Excellent food & service at a very reasonable price. Booked a table on-line having read reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed!

“One of the very best”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

During MWC 2014 we came to Sensi Bistro with some US colleagues and had the most fantastic time. The greeting was very friendly and warm and the food was exquisite. Rather than chose from the menu we asked the team to give us a selection of their favourites that expressed the food of the region. One of the party could not eat cheese and another shellfish, this did not phase the staff and they made everything fresh to accommodate the requirements. What was going to be a quick meal turned out to be a 4 hour party such was the hospitality. Even with the copious wine the cost was very very reasonable.

We has such a good time we returned two days later and had the same warm welcome and superb food. Sensi is highly recommended. You will not be disappointed. Either book or eat early as this place is packed by 8:30pm. Great Staff, Warm welcome, lively atmosphere and fantastic food.
