This experience was an awesome one. Cinc Sentits was recommended to us by family who visited earlier in the year and we were not disappointed. Booking in advance is recommended and you do have to choose one of their tasting menus. Due to the season, a special menu was in operation during our visit. The restaurant is very small -... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary in Barcelona and treated ourselves to the Chefs Tasting Menu with wine pairing and were blown away. A short stroll from Placa de Catalunya, the restaurant was simple and beautiful. There were only three other couples dining, dim lighting, candlelight, and rose petals on the tables. Staff were friendly and spoke excellent English, and explained... More

We made a reservation about a month ago before we arrived and almost have to cancel the reservation. I am glad we made it to the place. Since our hotel is off la ramblas, we took a walk down which is around 15 mins. We both ordered the sentits dinner menu which is around €85 and ordered their wine separately.... More

Cinc Sentits is a small restaurant with a very dedicaded and friendly staff. The food is playful and uses local dishes as a starting point with modern style cooking. Conceptualy a combination of new nordic local ingredients, combined with the going back to the roots style of DInner by Heston i London. The staff is not very big så there... More

This is an exceptional dining experience if you would like to celebrate a special occasion. You are taken for a gastronomic journey with expert explanations and advice. Matching wines beautifully complement each sensory experience. This restaurant is not cheap as you would expect for such a memorable dining experience and you will remember Cinc Sentits well beyond payment of your... More

Had the chefs tasting menu with wine pairings. Unusual courses and wines perfectly prepared, explained and matched. A singularly phenomenal experience with superb service. Reasonably priced for what you get. Only surprise was that people weren't lined up at the door to get in.

This restaurant gives you an amazing experience. If you have a special occasion this is the place to go. The cost is WELL worth it, nothing like it. Go hungry and with plenty of time as this is truly a sensory experience.

It can be all too easy for restaurants seeking to gain or maintain a lofty reputation to turn to gimmickry in preparation and display, and affectation in service. That was not the case when we dined recently at Cinc Sentits. Although we were admittedly a bit skeptical at the start when presented with a shot of warm maple syrup, chilled... More
