This place is expensive but what can you expect from a Michelin starred restaurant. I really loved the food here and the service was impeccable. If you don't speak Spanish, all the staff speak English and they are all very friendly and highly knowledgeable without...More

This is one of the most highly rated restaurants in Barcelona and it certainly is a great gastronomic experience. However, those who,like my husband, do not care for being obliged to accept a tasting-menu-only approach, may not be happy with the highly original combination of...More

The restaurant is very small, about ten tables and very understated. The menu is a tasting menu with two options--a more traditional Catalonian menu and a more nouvelle cuisine menu. Every tiny morsel exploded with flavor. The meal itself was worth every penny, but the...More

We had the Sensacions tasting menu without the wine pairing. The food was executed beautifully and I found it to be imaginative and absolutely delicious - it is clear why they have a Michelin star. The staff were very attentive without being in the way....More

Had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Food was interesting & well executed. Especially loved the maple syrup shooter. One dish included lettuce, which was unbelievable. Can't understand how you can get such a flavour from lettuce! Service was attentive but not obtrusive. Staff spoke very good...More

Absolutely amazing food - each course an experience, while not neglecting the taste buds. Wonderful use of local, slow food ingredients. Just an amazing treat. Service is lovely, not stuffy at all. Try the D'Argent Cava - bubbles don't count in the end.

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best

This would be ideal for a lovely suprise, I'm not sure if they do gift cards? Sorry
We will be in Barcelona in late April. When can we make reservations for dinner at your marvelous restaurant for sometime during our stay? My husband wants to make my birthday dinner extra special and it is our first trip to Barcelona. My girlfriend and her husband urged us to come to Cinc Sentits where they had what they said was the best meal of their lives. We are all very serious food lovers and cooks (but not chefs!) ourselves!! thea

Awarded a Michelin star since 2008, and rated #1 for food in Barcelona by Zagat, Cinc Sentits has created a buzz in Barcelona. Prodigal chef Jordi Artal's playful experiments with Catalan tastes, aromas, textures, layers, and sensations is cutting edge stuff. He recommends the seasonal tasting menu, letting each course bring a new and exciting sensation to your palate. There is a 6-course and a shorter 4-course version of the menu, both available with an optional wine pairing. All this, plus professional yet friendly multilingual service in a modern setting.
