If you decide to dine here you will find a lovely atmosphere, nice authentic decor and very attentive staff.

The menu makes exciting reading, we didn't know what to choose. We tried various options from the tapas menu and would especially recommend the mushroom croquettes and puff pastries.

This was not the most expensive meal during our Barca trip as the prices were extremely reasonable.

Overall, a really enjoyable experience. I'm not surprised this restaurant is so highly rated.

We enjoyed very much what we ate in this restaurant. Everything was very tasty and flavors were well chosen and combined. we especially enjoyed the melon-ginger-basil gazpacho. atmosphere friendly with a nice decor. Air conditioning was a little overwhelming in my opinion though but that is a matter of taste! reasonable prices. friendly staff.

Sesamo is a very fine vegetarian restaurant. The specials and desserts are presented on a portable chalkboard but there is a regular menu you can choose from. Prices are reasonable and the food is wonderful- especially the mushroom croquettes and the gnocchi which just melt in your mouth- perfectly cooked. Staff is very friendly and , though busy, we did not feel crowded nor did we have any long waits for our food. Though a bit off the beaten track, it is still just a fifteen minute walk from the main pedestrian street in the center of town, La Rambla, and you get much better food here than on big touristy streets like that. I strongly recommend it for vegetarians and non-vegetarians.

Another of Barcelona's growing number of vegetarian restaurants, and this one's a really good one. It's easy to miss as you walk along the road - we'd made reservations and still managed to walk straight past it in the dark. But it's worth seeking out.
We had the tasting menu, for €25 a person including two drinks, and it was worth it to try out the variety on the menu. The menu changes seasonally, but I've included photos of the menu we tried. The outstanding dishes were the gnocchi in a beetroot and hazelnut sauce, and the Provolone cheese with green tomato. Both fantastic. But the other dishes were good too.
The service was friendly and informal, and the kitchen is visible from the tables, so we could see our dinner taking shape. The decor is intimate and the lights are suitably dim. It was a very very pleasant experience. Recommended.

Delightful tasting menu, friendly staff, delicious food - what more does a restaurant need? We made reservations (recommended) based on recommendations from TripAdvisor and were not disappointed.
