I would rank Sesamo, food-wise, as among the best vegetarian restaurants at which I have eaten. The menu is excellent, and all items we ordered were extraordinary. The beet gnocchi, pumpkin soup, and the agnolotti were brilliant as was the brownie for dessert. I am very particular about brownies/brownie sundaes, and this one was probably the best one I have ever eaten anywhere. The tomato bread was easily the best-tasting we ate in Barcelona. In fact, all other tomato breads tasted really poor or marginal in retrospect, after eating Sesamo's. The only issue was of the service. During our second dinner there, the young man who was one of the two servers on duty was coughing very often in close proximity to food and guests , usually without covering his mouth properly. Our first visit was marred by a kitchen staff that glared at us the entire meal. If a restaurant is going to feature an open kitchen, people in the kitchen need to act in a friendly manner or at least not in a very overtly unfriendly manner. We were very bewildered by their behavior as we were both very appreciative, friendly, and complimentary of the food. The kitchen staff was definitely more friendly our second visit, but I would say the restaurant overall could improve on the uneven nature of the entire staff's behavior. Even with the service issues, I would highly recommend this restaurant. Food-wise, our two meals there were really satisfying.
Cons: service issues per my review
