This restaurant was recommended by a friend. It exceeded our expectations- and I was with big meat lovers. We did the tasting menu as recommended by others. Great deal. Also had the cauliflower. A must!! Great atmosphere and service too.

This has a warm and charming atmosphere. There is a whimsical mural of a dragon in the back dining room and the servers frequently display a chalkboard with the day's specials for use when ordering. The staff were friendly and efficient, making good recommendations for...More

Went for veggie tapas, really enjoyed the place. It's small cosy and very friendly. Menu has quality over quantity and generous portions. Nice cocktails, wine and desert (try the peanut butter bomb!!). Will certainly come back here on our next visit.

Excellent service and so considerate of any special food issues (vegan or not liking certain foods) and great variety of dishes. One of the best vegetarian meals ever!

We had been recommended Sesamo by a work colleague of my wife's as we wanted to eat tapas and we wanted vegetarian cuisine. From outside it looked a bit unimpressive but we were warmly welcomed and, having reserved a table, were offered a choice as...More

This was a spontaneous choice from a list of tapas restaurants, but I am very glad we chose the way we did. The tapas arrives quickly and tastes amazing. The fusion of various flavours such as goats cheese and roasted vegetables is truly delicious. The...More

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
