This is an amazing combination of the finest ingredients prepared by a self-taught and highly creative chef and accompanied by fine wines and outstanding service. It may have a Michelin star but it should get another for its consistent quality and welcoming atmosphere. The six-course meal with accompanying wines is perfectly sized so that you leave satiated but not stuffed.... More

We went here for dinner on our recent holiday to Barcelona. The room was a little clinical in its look, but it was actually quite intimate and small which made for a nice setting for a romantic dinner. The service & food were exceptional, very attentive staff and the food was innovative and delicious, drawing from Catalan inspired dishes. Make... More

In the city for the annual Barcelona Art Gallery Weekend, I noticed this highly rated restsurant located very near our hotel in the stylish Exiample area and decided we must try it. No reservations were available for the evening so we were offered a table for lunch (same menu and price). We live near Lyon, the gastronomical capital of France... More

When our menus were playfully delivered as part of a lamp, we knew this would be for us. Then began the sensory expedition that kept us smiling and our palettes buzzing all night. So many memorable moments, including a salty sweet maple syrup "shot" that we could have guzzled from a pint glass. A grouping of five appetizers that was... More

Cinc Sentis was amazing. Food / service / ambiance. We are foodies and have eaten at the best restaurants in NY / London / Paris etc and Cinc Sentis is in our top 5 without a doubt. The way they incorporate "5 senses" with a wide variety of place settings and food textures really lives up to the name and... More

Visited Barcelona earlier this year and thought we would treat ourselves to a top notch meal. A bit of research beforehand and we'd decided on Cinc Sentits. From start to finish the whole experience was absolutely wonderful - one of the most enjoyable dining experiences we've had. Superb, inventive use of local produce paired with some excellent and unusual wines.... More

From the moment we booked there were emails exchanged regarding our food allergies, my wife only eats vegetarian food or shell fish. After clarifying over multiple mails we agreed on the outline of the meal. Then when I reached Barcelona another activity had to be accommodated and I requested for shifting a Friday dinner to a Saturday lunch. They were... More

We had the wine pairing 6 course lunch. Wonderful selection of starters. The anchovy smoked with rosemary made me revise my view of anchovies. The Foi gras and the Squab for main course were inspired. The wine pairing was well thought out and the wines were on the whole very good and extremely well selected to compliment the food. Where...

I dont like foie gras which is one of their signature courses and emailing back and forth i selected scallop. My friend said the best foie gras she ever ate and my scallop was delicious.... More

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.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable 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 exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
