The chef's starters were really good and also the best experience of the evening. After that the food was fine but not surprising and wines not matching. For the price of €400 a little bit disappointing.

This one, 5 Senses sounded intriguing and was a good walk from our accommodation so we booked a month or more in advance for lunch . From our welcome amuse bouche of salty, sweet , crunchy yumness...

Ideal for our special celebration. Amazing food and service equivalent to top Michelin star restaurant. The experience is one for us to remember for ever. They check out what you won't/can't eat and the whole menu is a surprise on the day but each tasting dish was explained in detail by the great staff and we thoroughly enjoyed every dish.... More

I have been here one business dinner a couple of times and the food is absolutely outstanding! This is my favorite restaurant in Barcelona. The wine and the service is also excellent.

Definitely a 'go to' restaurant if you are a foodie! The menus are set but if there's something you don't like they will change it for you. My pictures say it all really...loved it!!!

The staff are charming and highly knowledgeable. we had the 4 and 6 course taster menu which was quite outstanding, with great respect paid to the ingredients of of fish, meat and vegatables. very big on local ingredients.

We visited Barcelona to dine at a series of Michelin starred restaurants. This was the first one. The service was excellent, everything flowed smoothly. There was never a wait for anything and the food was creative and delicious. This is a very special place.

We were very much looking forward to this dinner, as we have enjoyed a few wonderful Michelin starred restaurants and wanted to have a fancy, foodie experience while on vacation. I had read about cinc sentits and the many good reviews of the tasting menus. We were particularly drawn to it since the menu uses mostly Catalan / Spanish ingredients,... 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

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable 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 recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
