We were two couples, Saturday evening reservation. A lot of activity on such an evening but still with very good service and liw waitimg time. The tapas are really one notch or two above normal tapas. I love tapas when in Spain but these beats any tapas I tried before. Good wine but selection could be a little larger.

Was recommended to us by our hotel. It's one of many great restaurants along the Carrer Ample. It was our first night in Barcelona and it was a great way to start our food adventures. The space is best described as cozy with exposed stone walls. The service was excellent. Our server spoke English well and was very helpful. They... More

Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere here. We hadn't booked but they managed to squeeze us in at the bar. The food, considering how small the kitchen is, is really delicious, it was all hot, fresh, and very well cooked. Would definitely go back!

First I have to say that the food was outstanding and the service was excellent. The zucchini stuffed with goats cheese was amazing, super flavorful and not over powering. The best dish was the Normandy Style Casserole, such great flavors through the whole dish! As far as atmosphere goes, it was a little of a let down. The restaurant is... More

In the past three weeks, we have dined at all four Sensi restaurants in Barcelona's Barri Gotic, so this is a general review of the group. All four of them--Tapas, Gourmet, Bistro and the new Mezzanine--are excellent and very well priced. The Sensi restaurants have brought ingenuity and creativity to the usual tapas menu. The quality of each dish is... More

interesting tapas. most tapas around 6-10 euros. stonewalls and nice atmosfear. friendly personell. the one letdown is the soundlevel which is very high. the stonewalls makes the sound bounce in the small restaurant. not a place for a first date but maybe a late night tapas dinner when you might already be loud yourself.

We were staying in the Gothic Quarter and decided to give this restaurant a try because it was right across from our hotel. We are so happy we did. We liked it so much we went here twice during our week stay in Barcelona. Everything we tried on both nights was wonderful. From the Mussels, vegetable stuffed peppers, & ravioli... More

We were lucky to get some seats at the bar here as we hadn`t booked and it is rightly very popular. The tapas are fairly expensive but excellent with choices such as baby eel and squid, courgettes with cheese, excellent stuffed peppers etc. It is a great place to sit and enjoy a good glass of wine and some delicious...

Description
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.
