Cinc Sentits, Arzak, Sant Pau

We will be eating here in October and I am wondering what is the dress code for these places for dinner. Is a jacket and tie required, just a jacket or just sharp casual? Need to know what to pack.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Generally, Spain is very informal. Even in Arzak and Sant Pau, very few diners are in jackets and ties and that is in the evening. Sharp casual would be fine. Same for Cinc Sentits. I am envious...have a great trip. Please report back.

    1. Thanks PBSF, will do. Added Tapioles 53 for this Saturday too.

      1. Cinc Sentits was great. Went for lunch in October and had the tasting menu.

        If you ever have their roast suckling pig, you'll remember it for a long time -- delish!!

          Their suckling pig was one of the best things I ate in Spain.

        2. cincsentits will do a grand tasting menu if you give them 24 hours notice. It can be booked from their website.
          Do not miss Alkimia when in Barca it is superb check out flickr for a pictures of the tasting menu.

          1. you must also go to for drinks after cincsentits it is about 200 meters up the road
