All vegetarian and lots of vegan options. The food was excellent. One of the best meals I had in Barcelona. The peppers are so simple but extremely tasty!

Can't say enough good things about Sesamo. The food, the service... it's a superb restaurant for vegetarians and carnivores alike. Staff could not have been nicer and more helpful. We did not do the tasting menu as we preferred to create our own and are glad we did. But if you want to just relax and not make any choices,... More

We had the Chef's Choice seven course meal. EVERY dish was outstanding, even for my husband who is a meat eater! We loved the gnocchi with beetroot and hazelnut, chickpeas, and spinach feta rolls. This was our best meal in Barcelona.

We had the tasting menu (it comes in vegan and vegetarian versions—we picked vegan), which comes with two glasses of wine. Every course was creative and excellent, and the meal left us comfortably full and not over stuffed. This was probably my favorite meal on my trip to Spain. The staff was wonderful and friendly and spoke perfect English.

It was right from the start. Not polished not smart but comfortable and cool. A galley bar at the entrance, a limited cocktail choice (a good thing, big menus rarely good) and gin menu....chips of ginger, goldfish bowl of ice, glug of gin and tonic. A fresh peach juice Bellini was just fine. The taster menu of soup (squash and... More

Admittedly we didn't even try to get into Michelin starred places, but who needs to when restaurants like Sesamo exist? 3 weeks later and I'm still thinking about the food. And it wasn't just the veggie in our party (me) who was blown away, all 8 of the carnivores were still commenting on the food, the atmosphere, the wonderful service... More

Gem of a little place albeit tucked away in a not so nice looking area but well worth the visit Only about ten mins walk from Les Ramblas. We recomend you try the 7 course. They are the size of an entree and each one was delciious and a pleasant surprise. Cost 25 euros each but with that you also... More

This is one of the best places in Barcelona to try some very different Vegetarian options. The best thing to do here is to opt for the Chef's special. They bring 9 different items and the chef decides what to send over to your table. The food is amazing. From the presentation to all of the different flavors.

Really nice veggie dinner - I'm not vegetarian but thoroughly enjoyed the 7 taster menu, which had a good variety and didn't feel it was missing meat. The cashew curry was fantastic. Appreciate that it was a tasting menu but serving sizes were particularly small.

Thank Jennifer B

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood 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.
