With a growing worldwide reputation for its inventive contemporary Catalan cuisine, chef Jordi Artal and his maitre d’ sister Amelia have created a superb dining experience at their elegant Eixample restaurant, Cinc Sentits. Committed to sourcing the finest quality Spanish ingredients from the best small purveyors throughout the Catalunya region and Spain, deep water prawns are sourced from Palamos, the lamb from the Pyrenees and their freshly churned butter from the Catalan Pyrenees. Cinc Sentits is a tasting menu restaurant, where guests can choose from the 6-course ‘Essencia’ menu with larger, ingredient-driven courses; or from the indulgent 8-course ‘Sensacions’ menu where the chefs creativity with seasonal ingredients is on full display. Both tasting menus include matched wine pairings to compliment each course. Cross your fingers that delicacies such as the foie gras ‘coca’ with balsamic-glazed leeks with a burnt sugar shell, exquisitely rich Iberian suckling pig with poached apples, or wild Mediterranean red mullet with fresh vegetable samfaina may be the order of the day. The elegant contemporary decor is warm and inviting, the service is knowledgeable and the Spanish -focused wine list is perfectly paired. Advanced bookings required.
