I do not intend to comment on any other issue to do with this establishment other than its practice of dishonestly advertising the price for its fare. View the restaurant's website and you will see the advertised price for the main tasting menu as 110 euros. View the restaurant's wine lists when you are there and you will see the... More

This is a very good and solid restaurant. The food is very good and the service is very professional. The only problem we faced were the limited number of half bottles. We went there as a couple and wanted to have a white and red half bottles. This was a good but not memorable restaurant. It was a good experience... More

It was the week between Christmas and New Year, the city was full of tourists, and it was not that cold. A friend of ours, head of international sales for a local winery, invited us to this restaurant, mentioning its uniqueness in terms of taste and sensation. We gladly accepted, even though my wife and two daughters age 21 and... More

We have tried a number of other michelin-star restaurants, and this one simply gives the best overall service and food quality. We booked the gastronomic course for lunch in advance, and the design of the course truly gives the diner a sensational experience and sometimes surprise. The staff all speaks English and give a good description and explanation on each... More

One couldn't possibly starve in a town like Barcelona - so much choice so much variety where does one start? We were lucky to book here: there's quite a bit of variation in quality and wow factor amongst Michelin starred establishments especially the oners but cinc sentits is definitely one of the better oners. Dinner was delightful and more than... More

I had the full tasting menu , with wine paring, and it was an amazing 3 and half hour journey into regional cuisine with the modern twist. Without saying the service was fantastic and you would expect. The wine pairing in particular is exquisite.. One or two dishes in the entire tasting list ( there are about 20 items in... More

Very deserving of that Michelin star! If slow food is your thing this is slow food meets fine dining - no compromises. The staff is proud of their efforts both on the food and service side. We had the Sentis tasting menu which offered such a variety of delights. The food is beautifully presented with tastes and flavours to match.... More
