Elegant Michelin-starred restaurant with a deep respect for the ways of the Catalan kitchen.

Brother and sister Jordi (chef) and Amy Artal (maître d’) run this small, well-respected shrine to modern Catalan cuisine, which finally earned a much-deserved Michelin star in 2009.

Food and drink

There is no a la carte, just two tasting menus – the six-course Essència or the eight-course Sensacions. To start they will bring you the house ‘chupito’ – a shot glass layered with rock salt, maple syrup (a nod to their Canadian roots), cream and cava sabayon, and then a parade of creative dishes that might include crisp coca bread with caramelised leeks and foie gras; red mullet with basil risotto, or suckling pig with ‘two textures’ of apple.

Ambience

The dining room is hushed and minimalist – this is not the place for a rowdy party.

Service

Amy and her multilingual team are knowledgeable and charming, and will steer you through the range of options and a good wine list.

Location

Cinc Sentits is on C/Aribau, just up from the intersection with C/Aragó.

Price advice

The Essència menu is 50 euros, while the Sensacions menu is 69 euros.
