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

I reserved a table at Sesamo for the first night of my sister in law's hen party as a surprise (she is veggie and often struggles to find a resteraunt with lots of choice). The staff were very accomodating and friendly throughout. We opted for...More

Did not like the food overall and the man at the counter was not at all pleasant. I noticed other guests also not enjoying their food.

My partner and I thought we were going to struggle in Barcelona for vegetarian food. This was because we figured it being coastal and therefore expecting it to be heavily seafood orientated. In fairness, this was the case for most restaurants, but we were pleasantly...More

I had such a lovely dinner at Sesamo. For €25 per person, you can do an incredible tasting of 7 dishes plus wine. Service was amazing, food was incredible. I still crave those Padrón peppers.

The restaurant has a great service but there are improvement to be done in the food and installations. The restroom had a terrible smell that could be noticed from our table. Food was regular, nothing super special.

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
