We did the mid-level tasting ("sensations") with wine pairing for lunch. Every plate was excellent and beautiful. They gave much thought to the food and wines. Servers were not only proficient, a few who spoke English well were very helpful at explaining our many questions about the food, wine, and city. We've been to other restaurants with more Michelin stars... More

We ate the 7 course Sensacions menu (more like 10 course with the added couple of dishes) which was unbelievable! The whole menu was out of this world. I also opted the wine flight which was a great decision as it made the whole experience even greater. All the wine was Spanish (including their own wine) and each glass was... More

We did the Sensacions menu. Wow. It was an amazing experience! Service was great. Each server was courteous and friendly. Each dish was presented with a description. The chef was also very accommodating in altering slightly a couple dishes to address a food allergy. The staff was all very concerned to make sure the dishes were ok for the allergy.... More

I really can't say much more than has already been said by other reviewers. Cinc Sentits truly is fantastic. My husband and I had the gastronomic menu with the wine pairings for lunch on Saturday. The food is innovative, the pairings unique, and the service exceptional. To fully enjoy the total experience, I strongly recommend enjoying the menus with the... More

I would offer this restaurant to anyone. Unique experience offering an unexpected menu with great and professional service. Can't add any praise that previous reviewers didn't already mention. Honestly the best restaurant I ever visited. If I can offer a small criticism - it would be that the transition from one dish to the next happened somewhat quickly and since... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by a work colleague in the States, and I booked the reservation online before leaving the U.S. The positive experience began with the online booking, the ease of reconfirming 24 hours out by email, and a gracious personal reply from my host ( in flawless English). We chose the 7 course "Sensacions" tasting menu... More

Over the years we have eaten at a number of superb restaurants. Cinc Sentits has to be right up there with the best. Not knowing what to expect we chose the longer tasting menu. Each course was a brilliantly-presented taste sensation. The courses were well balanced against each other and the taste combinations interesting and innovative. The foie has to... More

Solo, menu gastronomique, june 2014. Service: exceptionally attentive, non-intrusive, elegant, classic, humorous, personal. Food: appealing to all senses, excellent presentations, meticulous textures, well balanced. Wine pairings: assertive, ballsy, avant-guarde, intelligent, interesting. After visiting other Mich-* restaurants in BCN during the last couple of days such as Moments(**), Dos Palillos(*) and Moo(*), Cinc Sentits comes in first, due to the total... More

We visited Cinc Sentits for lunch and I can honestly say that it was one of the most exciting culinary experiences of my life (and I work in the trade). When we booked we decided upon the gastronomic menu. This is advertised as 9 courses, it's actually nearer 14, with wine (or vermouth!) paired with pretty much every course. There's... More

Every plate I had was delicious and the wine they matched to it perfect. A great dinner serving regional food and wines.
