We shared 6 tapas. Four were perfectly acceptable but not out of the ordinary. However, the veg curry had enough salt to sink a battleship and the lamb off the bone just didn’t taste quite right (maybe that needed more of the lamb gravy -...More

This place was amazing. We had a group of 8 and there they were able to accommodate us after a bit of waiting. The staff gave us recommendations and we just went with it. Everything was delicious. Staff was super friendly and very helpful.

I premise that I am very familiar with Spanish food and I can vouch that this is a good one. Small and cozy atmosphere. cheerful young staff (one crazy Italian) and creative tapas. It is small so it is best to reserve a table. A...More

We were redirected and indeed escorted from the other Sensis restaurant in Carrer del Regomir which was booked up. Friendly and warm. Popular with locals but a distinctly international staff - waitresses from Ecuador, Italy, New York etc. English language menu and sympathetic service. Limoncello...More

After walking around for the best part of 90 minutes trying to find somewhere to eat, we very luckily found a table at around 10.40pm. A quick check of the reviews and it looks like we stumbled on a great place. We ordered: Truffle Ravioli...More

This is definitely not your average Tapas! Everything we had was really good. Iberic chorizo croquettes with red allioli. The Duck Timbale with potatoes parmesan was superb. The classic filet of beef with black pepper sauce was amazing and i really loved the Piquillos peppers...More

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.
