If you're vegetarian, you'll notice that it's difficult to find a variety of things for you to eat in Spain. Although their cuisine is delicious, it's definitely geared towards meat, fish, and egg eaters. This is where Sesamo really steps up in creating a fine dining experience for vegetarians and vegans, but without being stuffy, bland, or too expensive.
I'd recommend trying the tasting menu. For 25 euros, they provide 5 courses as well as wine or beer. There were far more than 5 plates, with some courses having multiple components. The chef himself came to our table and was able to alter the dishes to be egg-free. I visited with two non-vegetarians, and we all agreed the food was very good by any standards and left stuffed and happy! I'm not sure how popular vegetarianism is in Spain, but it seemed like the majority of the patrons were either North American or from other parts of Europe, since we heard a lot of communication with the staff in English. Everyone was very accommodating and besides enjoying the food, we had a wonderful experience. If you're vegetarian or not, this place is tasty!
The location is small so it's easy to walk past it in the narrow streets of that area. I'd recommend taking the Sant Antoni metro stop, and it's right around the corner. For those not used to Spanish business hours, the restaurant opens much later than most North Americans are used to, and at 8 pm we were some of the first people arriving. If you're not arriving early, make a reservation to be safe. The decor was hip/minimalist with cozy touches, although my friend who used their bathroom thought it left much to be desired.
