This restaurant was recommended to us. We were glad that we decided to go. It was one of the highlights of our trip. The restaurant is beautiful, the service was excellent, and the food simply wonderful. We chose the 6 course. Each was a feast...More

We had the Express lunch menu and it was definitely worth the expense. Whilst none of the individual items on the menu were on the level of Heston's MeatFruit, I really enjoyed all three courses and the accompanying appetisers and pre desserts and as a...More

This place is expensive and wants to resemble the great Spanish chefs, but it is very far from achieving this. The portions are very small and then you are given a huge piece of bread which you have no option other to eat it all....More

Lovely dinner Tuesday with my lady. Had the 6 courses. All were divine. The food is elegant and delicate with an almost molecular type cuisine so common in the Barcelona food scene. Over all a great experience. We both loved it.

What a fun, tasty meal. We did the 4 course tasting menu which was more than enough. Artful presentation of typical, local ingredients with unique twists and taste combinations. We do not normally take pictures of our plates, but we made an exception here. A...More

Everything about the experience is simply sublime. We chose the 6 course tasting menu, with the matching flight of wines. The restaurant is laid out in such a way that you feel as if you are in a private dining space. The lighting is subdued,...More

The food was absolutely wonderful—inventive yet approachable. The courses were well paced, and the waiters explained each course, including the local ingredients. And, such a nice touch at the end to leave with a book about the restaurant with a copy of that night's menu....More

This is a family run restaurant with a self-taught chef, producing food that is both imaginatively conceived and presented, whilst tasting delicious. You choose either a 4-course or 6-course set menu (we had a number of food allergies which mean't we ended up with 5),...More

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.
