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.

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.

Wow. Wow. Wow. Sesamo is a must for vegetarians and vegans visiting Barcelona. On arrival we declined the tasting menu, as we both thought we couldn’t eat that much tapas. We were so wrong. We ended up spending more, as we soon wanted to try as much as we could from the fantastic main menu. Moreover, we couldn’t fault the... More

We had dinner at Sesamo. Selected this because it is one of the best rated vegetarian places in Barcelona and we were not disappointed. Every dish we had - we tried most of the items on the menu - was very good. Would highly recommend.

Went here with my boyfriend and friend, really wonderful experience. Lots of choices as vegetarians, we had lots of small tapas dishes- each of which was delicious! And the deserts were extremely tasty (an indulgent brownie with ice cream and baileys sauce, and a mango and coconut mousse with chia seeds). Staff were very friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend... More

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.

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.
