Frequently Asked Questions
How can I make a reservation?
You can book a table for 1-8 guests up to 4 weeks in advance on our online reservation page which provides real-time availability and instant confirmation. If your preferred date is already full please add your name to the waiting list and we will get in touch right away should we receive a cancellation.
Are children allowed?
For the enjoyment of all our guests, please note that we only welcome adventurous young foodies over the age of 7. From experience, younger children find a 3-4 hour meal in a quiet, gastronomic environment to be too much to handle. Also note that we do not have an a-la-carte option nor a children’s menu. We only offer a choice of tasting menu to all guests.
Do you accept bookings for large groups?
Yes, there are two private rooms, Torre which seats up to 26 guests at 1 rectangular table, and Barcelona which seats up to 28 guests at 7 round tables or 30 guests at 2 rectangular tables. The entire restaurant can be privatized as well to accommodate up to 50 guests. See the Groups page for complete details.
How can I change or cancel my reservation?
The easiest way is to cancel is to click on the “cancel reservation” link in your confirmation email. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you just want to change your reservation, we recommend emailing us at email@example.com and we’ll be happy to help. To change the number of guests on short notice, you can also call us at +34 93 323 9490.
What is your cancellation policy?
Dining Room: Reservations can be changed or cancelled at any time and for any reason. Please note that no-shows and headcount reductions made with fewer than 48 hours’ notice will automatically be charged a fee of 75€ per guest, with no exceptions. That said, as a small, family-run restaurant, we do strive to do the right thing. If we are able to book another reservation at your table, then we will refund the cancellation fee. In fairness to other guests, we simply want to avoid a table sitting empty that someone else could have enjoyed.
Chef’s Table:At the time of booking you will be purchasing a ticket per guest for the full value of the experience. This works the same as buying tickets for a concert or the theatre, the purchase is non-refundable. As we are a small, family-run restaurant, we strive to do the right thing. If we are able to book another client at your table, then we will refund the price of the tickets, even if the cancellation was on short notice. In fairness to other guests, we simply want to avoid a table sitting empty that someone else could have enjoyed.
Out-of-town Guests: Travel delays are common and may cause you to miss your reservation and incur a cancellation/no-show fee, which is something everyone wants to avoid. For this reason we highly recommend booking your table for at least the day after you arrive in Barcelona, in the case that you are visiting from out-of-town.
What are your hours?
We are open for lunch and dinner from Tuesday – Saturday. Lunch starts at 1:30 pm and dinner starts at 8:30 pm. To reserve and see real-time availability, please see our online reservation page.
Where are you located?
Cinc Sentits is located at Entença 60 in the Eixample neighbourhood of Barcelona. The cross street is Diputació. We are very close to Plaza España and the Barcelona Convention Centre.
There is a public car park directly across the street and the Rocafort metro stop (L1) is around the corner.
What kind of food do you serve?
We exclusively offer a tasting menu; there is no a-la-carte option. The tasting menu is the same at lunch and dinner, so the dining experience is identical. The menu changes with the seasons and includes around 11 separate servings with an optional wine pairing. A shorter version with about 8 separate servings is also available.
Each guest at the table can choose their preferred menu. We do not require all guests at the table to order the same thing.
Can you accommodate allergies or other dietary restrictions?
We can accommodate most dietary requests with advance notice. Please let us know all allergies and dietary restrictions at your table when making your reservation. You can also send an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that we do not offer a vegan or fully vegetarian option at the present time.
What is the dress code?
Although Cinc Sentits is a fine dining restaurant, we do not impose a formal dress code on guests. You are welcome to dine as you feel most appropriate and comfortable. In general, guests tend to dress smart-casual for dinner, and more casually at lunch. Jackets and ties are not required for gentlemen.
Can I take pictures or video?
You are welcome to take pictures for your private use. We ask that you do not use your flash and to please not take pictures of any other guests in the dining room. If you’d like to take a photo or video of our team as they serve your table or explain a dish, we suggest the courtesy of asking them first. If you’d like us to take a picture of you, don’t hesitate to ask; it would be our pleasure.
How long will the meal take?
We believe that each table should be able to dine at the pace that they most enjoy as opposed to the restaurant imposing a specific pace. We recommend allowing 2-3 hours to fully enjoy the dining experience.
If you have a time constraint and would like to go faster or slower, just let us know.
What should we do if we are running late?
In order to provide the best possible service to all guests, please arrive on time for your reservation. If you are running a few minutes late, it is no problem at all. If you are running more than 15 minutes late, call us at +34 93 323 9490 as it may be necessary to cancel and reschedule your booking for another day.
How can I pay?
We accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express as well as cash in Euros.
Does the restaurant have wheelchair access?
Yes, there is a stair-free entrance as well as bathroom facilities that can accommodate wheelchair users. Please feel free to contact us for any special requirements you may have.
