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

Two of us had the Sentits menu (€85) with matched wines (€50). The food was excellent, the wines very good, and well matched (even a dessert wine not served with dessert), and the time flew by, staff were attentive, I couldn't believe we were in there 2hrs 40mins. In particular the trout roe in leek sauce/soup was fantastic and the... More

If you want bad wine and salty food, all presented in a clever way then this is the place for you. The atmosphere is cave like, and is like a long dark hallway. We had the smaller of the two dinner tasting menus with wine pairings. The wine was horrible (to much alcohol taste, no complexity and most labels appear... More

Everything was simply perfect! We had lunch and decided to have the tasting menu. What a treat! Every course was exceptional by itself. Each of them was described by the very professional staff. The Spanish wine we had by the glass was also pretty good. All in all, one of the best restaurants we've ever been to!
