Great great little tapas bar in the Gothic quarter. Quite small and buzzy (not sure how resevations work, but probably worth it for more than 2 people), friendly staff, and GREAT food. Highly recommended for a delicious night out.

Superb food, well presented. The service was excellent but not overly obsequious. The dessert menu was good but not overly large. The chocolate fondant was superb. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed the tapas here. We did not have reservations, but came early for the dinner time. The staff was very friendly, joked with us, and even gave us Limoncello shots at the end of our stay. This was our first visit to Spain and...More

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be

Sensi is located in the emblematic Gothic district of Barcelona, from which it takes its inspiration. It is a romantic and cosy restaurant with stone walls, exposed beams and handcrafted lighting, which, combined with the carefully selected soundtrack, creates a friendly and informal atmosphere. The menu is based on Mediterranean cuisine using the freshest seasonal ingredients, designed to delight the senses. Typical dishes include a duck pastry with potato and a port reduction; grilled king prawns with mango chutney and fine noodles, vegetable and sweet chilli; or marinated tuna tartar with sesame oil and crispy leeks. Its modern menu together with professional and attentive service makes Sensi the ideal place for any kind of evening out.
