For those who have opted for a vegetarian or vegan diet and don’t eat any food of an animal origin, there are excellent options in Barcelona for eating out. To help you find vegetarian food in the city, prepared with the freshest ingredients, we have created a list of venues you can explore when you get hungry.
This is one of the best vegetarian restaurants you can find in the city center, so much so that at lunchtime it will be very difficult to find a free table. They offer a variety of menus that start at 7€ (takeaway), going all the way to 10,90€. With the menu you get a choice of a first dish which can be soup, salad or the dish of the day, then you get a choice of a second main dish (there are usually three to choose from each day) and a dessert. The menus are a little pricier at night and during the weekends.

Sésamo may not be the nicest looking restaurant in this list but it is, nonetheless, a great choice for vegetarians in Barcelona. They offer a great tasting menu which gives customers the possibility to try seven different dishes in one meal. If you don’t think you can eat that much, you can order single dishes but let us warn you: it will be hard to choose. Ravioli with mushrooms and thyme sauce and gnocchi filled with gorgonzola in a beetroot and hazelnut sauce are only two of the delicious dishes served at Sésamo, created by experienced chef Alfredo. The restaurant also has a very nice selection of desserts to choose from, such as pumpkin pie with cardamom cream, or avocado mousse, if you prefer something more fruity. Sésamo is not exclusively vegetarian, which means you can bring your meat eater friends to enjoy a meal with you.
