I've enjoyed a fine dinner at Sesamo. Everything was pretty good although some of the dishes were small. The service is great, friendly and English-speaking. The seating on the entrance with the high chairs are not so comfortable, however.

My partner and I tried this restaurant on Friday night on the recommendation of a work colleague. Although I am vegetarian, my partner is not and we do not generally visit vegetarian restaurants so I was interested to see how satisfying he would find a meat and fish free meal. The answer is that he loved it! We both had... More

As a vegetarian, Barcelona can be a little difficult to navigate, so Sesamo was a treat! My husband and I both had the tasting menu -- which was interesting and tasty. There is a regular menu with lots of options if you want to design your own meal. The staff was helpful and friendly. It's a very casual restaurant --... More

My husband and I went to Sesamo on a Saturday night and had the tasting menu. We absolutely loved the food and the friendly and attentive staff made it an outstanding dining experience. I highly recommend Sesamo for vegetarians and the price for quality food really cannot be beat. Try to make a reservation if possible since it's a small... More

We have been here twice over the past two years when visiting Barcelona. The tasting menu has been great both times. A funky little restaurant with nice ambiance in a neighborhood a bit outside of the trendier areas.

A very nice vegetarian and vegan restaurant in the center of Barcelona with delicious food and an open view on the kitchen. Funky!

We were looking for place to have dinner without being attracted by anything in particular in the area till we found this bar-looking-place in Carrer de Sant Antoni Abat. Nice service, incredible vegetarian tapas that combined tastes from high cuisine. Drinks were a bit too expensive, but we paid it happily after satisfying our bellies.

Thank ElTataNL

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.
