Utterly amazing dishes masquerading as tapas..... Ignore the menu and ask the waiter - thing are not always as they seem - watch what the other diners are eating. Highlight for me was the risotto with cops and foie gras - I'd happily eat this every day no die happy.

We stopped into Sensi for a tapas dinner for our family of four (parents with two teens). Wow - what an amazing taste and sensory experience for each of us -- the one who eats no mammals, the one who specializes in Jamón and two who are omniverous. We loved it and tried to repeat. Without reservations, it's hit or... More

Amazing! We visited this place because of TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed at all!! Incredible food, the pork loin, truffle ravioli, duck timbale and Normandy casserole were just some of the amazing dishes we tried! I would suggest booking or going early when it opens to avoid disappointment of not being able to get in, because it get... More

The place was mediocre and caters to tourists. We were in Barcelona for 8 days and dubbed this our most disappointing meal.

We came without a reservation and got lucky enough to find the last available table. The restaurant has a modern feel to it, yet it is cozy and inviting. Staff is courteous and friendly. We tried several tapas - bread with tomatoes, octopus, croquetas, jamon iberico, paella, etc, and everything was delicious. We also tried their sangria and I do... More

Walked in last minute and ate at the bar. Definitely worth it! Standouts include the beef tartare with strawberry, and the pork tataki. Great vibe and cozy intimate feel. Definitely worth popping in!

OMG the FOOD!! To die for!! Definitely the best tapas experience my group had during our stay. We loved every bite, all of their restaurants are great but this place was my favorite.

It was absolutely heaving but staff still ensured they attended to you as and when you needed it, which sometimes you don't get. The food was amazing, thoroughly enjoyed the seabass trio, chorizo croquettes and fillet steak. We ordered 3 per person and then also shared cheeses for pudding!!

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.
