This was our 4th visit to Cinc Sentits over a 5 year period, and I can only compare it to a roller coaster as far as consistancy is concerned, it really has been up and down.
- 1st visit = fabulous
- 2nd visit = ok
- 3rd visit just after they got their Michelin Star = superb – see Cinc Sentits (five senses) – you’ll use em all
- 4th visit = hit and miss, see post below:-
This restaurant based on earlier experiences was almost a tie withÂ Comerc 24 as our favourite Barcelona Restaurant. Not so this time as Comerc 24 was streets ahead. Tram Tram another old favorite pulled out the stopsÂ and easily beat Cinc Sentits to secondÂ place.
Some of the usual courses were excellent (the foie gras)Â but a few too many had slipped to just ordinary so that the whole meal felt a bit hit and miss. The individual courses had shrunk so that a dimple in the plate seemed to hold them.Â The cheese course in particular looked really tiny, (one small piece of cheese, a minuscule tomato and a couple of leaves of rocket), but I have to say it came as a bit of a surprise as it was very tasty indeed.
One of the more substantial dishes was the fish course served in glass paper, a presentation style I have so far only seen at Launceston Place in London.
Maybe we’ll do a return next year, but with so much competition who knows.
