    This was the third time I enjoyed the restaurant. I brought with me 3 vegetarians, and everyone loved the variety of tastes We particularly loved the beetroot hummus and the padron peppers, and the pasta and the baked cauliflower. But the deserts—the peanut butter bomb and the chocolate truffle especially—were a delicious surprise.

    Food was really tasty! The tasting menu is an incredible value, so much food for a good price-we did the vegan. The staff was very attentive. The environment is quite noisy but the energy was good. I recommend Sesamo for vegans!

    Warm and welcoming! The prix-fixe menu with 7 tapas and 2 drinks & dessert. Also ordered the cauliflower special a la carte. Everything was very delicious & filling! Bravo!

    Great meal and easy and nice to have the tasting menu. And when we told them we didn't like something that appeared to be coming, they exchanged it for something else without a problem.

    Really good food and nice selection of vegetarian and vegan food. The service and the waitress was also really good. Only the owner (?) seems to be a bit unfriendly.

    very friendly staff and fresh food, but nothing overwhelming/surprising. unfortunately nothing non-alcoholic interesting to drink. nice atmosphere in the restaurant, unlike the bathroom and „backstage“-area...

    The food was the best we had yet in Barcelona, it was really great (and we are picky). The stuff was friendly, too. I would definitely recommend it and come back if I ever visit Barcelona again!

    Fantastic food and service. We aren't even vegetarian but we often have cravings for Sesamo especially their roasted cauliflower!

    Food was absolutely fantastic, service was great. 10/10. We had the vegan taster menu for €25 each, got 7 dishes plus olives, bread and desert and two drinks each, every dish tasted fantastic, the waitress was really sweet and the whole night was good. Would definitely go again!

    The tasting menu was amazing and good value for money (although would say maybe a bigger bottle of water and some olives/bread would have been good ) The gnocchi was amazing and the carrot dish was just brilliant And the dessert I didn't share with my husband it was to nice !!

    Excellent food in a nice informal atmosphere. The kitchen does inventive, vegetarian takes on Catalan and other Mediterranean classics. Definitely a place for sharing a lot of small plates.

    The food at Sésamo is gorgeous and well presented. Cooked to order. Service is attentive without being intrusive. We would have found it helpful to have their menu explained so we could have avoided over ordering. We’re english and starter mains and deserts is for an individual st home; however this meant something else here and so I ordered something that would have been suitable for four sharing! This meant s lot of waste and unnecessary expense. We ordered individual starters also but they served each as for two. Would I return? Most definitely as it’s a great place but I’d check exactly what I was ordering.

    We had a fantastic meal at Sésamo last night. It was probably one of the best , most interesting meals we have ever had. Both decided it would be worth coming back to Barcelona just to visit Sésamo again. The service was excellent. It was a fabulous evening.

    The food was delicious; we had the chef’s menu and enjoyed its flavors and its creativity very much. The staff is really nice and everything arrived at our table in a steady pace. Directly made a reservation for the next day. Recommended!

    Tapas Tasting Menu: 7 tapas to share selected by the chef. After a tasty pumpkin soup came the disappointment: we received a portion of padron peppers, a small boiled potato im alioli and one mushroom croquet each. We expected something different from a 'chef's selection'. The remaining tapas, agnolotti and curry, were pretty tasty and the service is attentive and engaging.
