From the arrival to the departure we've been blown away! We started with pre-dinner drinks in the bar shortly after followed by our amazing dinner experience. The Restaurant Manager Alejandro Lopez who guided us over the impeccable menu and suggested wine pairings that hit our taste buds with every wine recommended deserves special appraisal. He was very professional but remained friendly and approachable during the entire service. We originally planned to have two course dinner but ended up with few more courses as an addition to this dining experience. They were all delicious and well presented. We can not forget to mention Benjamin who was also assisting with the dinner service. The biggest surprise arrived after the dinner as we had a chance to go for a private tour of the Le V Cave with Sommelier Alexander. I love people who are so passionate and dedicated about the job they do - just like Alex is. The wine cellar is beauty on its own and not to mention the beauties stored over there. What an experience I have to say! Thank you all who contributed to our special occasion dinner time, also to Chef and his team for such an amazing food and hope to be back soon.

There’s nothing even remotely negative to say about our experience here.
From the welcome greeting to the graceful farewell, everything was really well handled by the expert and well trained staff.
The ambient is exceptional and unique. The staff is courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. Despite the very high level culinary experience, there was no patronizing detected; on the contrary, staff was very relaxed and respectful. The menu is well balanced as far as choice and the food absolutely divine. The wine list, although at first glance intimidating, has something for anyone and carries exceptional wines at normal quality/price ratios.
In one word, a very pleasant experience.
Let’s be clear about it: it is expensive as you can easily imagine, but you get what you are paying for. This is, after all, a top culinary experience in one of the most exclusive places in one of the most expensive places in the world, so obviously common sense has to be employed when deciding to dine here, but, if you are in this bracket or mood, by all means, feel free to try. You won’t regret it.
A nice touch by difference to other places in the category is that the staff is relaxed and playful as opposed to some of the similar style restaurants where the employees seem to be stiff and overwhelmed by their role to bestow upon us, mortals, the benediction of the French gourmet cuisine. Not here. Quality is – naturally after all – considered a given at this level and people are laid back in the good sense of the word and make one feel relaxed and welcomed.
Bravo!

They say some guys have all the luck ... Guess what?, I married the love of my life and we had our wedding dinner at the amazing Le Cinq on the 5 April 2014. ... Sadly I am not going to explain the experience .... Because if you "nit pick" on the Le Cinq, then you don't deserve anything in your life. .. All I can say is the food and service is fit for ROYALTY.

A lunchtime treat before heading home, this 2 Michelin star restaurant was superb. We were an hour early for our booking, not a problem and we were seated very quickly. The staff were welcoming and helpful - I dread starred restaurants where I am made to feel that they are doing me a favour letting me eat there. The sommelier was fantastically enthusiastic!

We opted for the 5 course tasting menu, (3 fixed 'starters', choice of 2 main courses and 2 desserts) and took the sommelier's recommendations for wine with each course. The food was excellent.

The menu was 185€ + 100€ for the wines per head. Not cheap, but no complaints - this was top quality cuisine.
