Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our Air BnB host recommended the restaurant in Old Havana - only wish we found it earlier in the trip! We had a wonderful meal that accommodated all of our dietary preferences ( including gluten-free and vegetarian). The food was amazing - fish cooked to...perfection. The staff was kind and worked to prepare a vegan pasta dish that was flavorful. The 5 senses experience appetizer was unique and a must try. Very reasonably priced!More

First visit was on our last night and I wish we had discovered the restaurant sooner. The food was absolutely incredible, pulpo cooked in sn Asian style was out of this world! I can still taste the flavours. The presentation of the restaurant was charming...and felt luge old style Havana but with all the comfort of air con and immaculately clean. The chef’s flavours and presentation are absolutely above everything I have ever tasted in Havana (visiting for past 20 years) and we enjoyed exceptional service from Lismu who was both professional yet friendly and fun as well as being knowledgable about the food and wine, of which there was a very impressive selection. Will definitely book for my next visit to Havana! Thank youMore

We are foodies and this was easily our best meal in Havana. The service was great (ask for Alex!), the drinks were spectacular, and the food was out of this world. The octopus, pork, and red snapper were amazing. Often times we just ordered what...Alex recommended and we were never disappointed. The chef came out after the meal to chat and was such a gem. Just go here now, stop looking at other places. You will not be disappointed.More

Excellent modern restaurant operating to North American standards. The food was first-rate. The staff was super friendly and spoke perfect English. Sofia was the attentive waitress. Alehandro is a helpful manager. Kian is security out front. Kian's English is limited but he is a nice...guy. The bill came to $30 Canadian for me. The food quality and service level put my 5-star Havana Hotel to shame.More

Dinner was really good here - from the starters to the dessert. The chicken marsala is very spicy and the black rice with fish was done well. Salads were great and the drinks perfect. As a baker i am very particular about desserts - here...they were good too! Definitely a place to have dinner. Highly recommended.More

Our absolute favourite restaurant in Havana and a short walk from our hotel in Parque Centrale We found it on Googles Top Ten Restaurants and it was also recommended in the Lonely Planet Guide. Amazing food, presentation and service, as well as English-speaking staff. We...visited twice in our 7 day stay in Havana and both times had the Snapper and the Black Rice - delicious!

It is absolutely wonderful to find such cookery level in Havana. With so many restaurants and cafes faking it, 5 Sentidos is definitely making it. You will find beautifully crafted dishes, that bring joy to the palate: the beef tartare is a good example of...their subtle flavors and exquisite presentation. Being a seafood lover, I was glad to try the red snapper and the grilled octopus; my respect to the chef for making these common main dishes their own, with a tropical but not overwhelming twist. The desserts are excellent on their own, however, I could not say the same of the cocktails. If I had to change something, it would be the drinks. I will be delighted to return to this lovely place, which in my opinion, deserves so much more attention than it gets.More

Restaurants in Cuba rarely have everything on the menu because of food shortages, but 5 Sentidos did a great job preparing our meals. We had fish and lobster. But the best was the five chocolate dessert!

And suddenly and excellent gastronomic surprise in Havana. We found accidently this restaurant, the environment and the decoration details pulled our attention, and believe it or not no one tried to push us in. 😮 Simpathic and professional coworkers, fair price and most of all...great approach to the Cuban gastronomy. 🇨🇺 Congratulation to the creator that we had the chance to meet.More

I got it off their website. If it’s down i did see one pic in the TripAdvisor gallery. I can tell you the price range for entrees was between $10-14. I ordered 2 entrees instead of appetizers.

You can make reservations in advance and I recommend you do so. I made reservations a day or two in advance for a Saturday night and they didn’t have the time I wanted around 8pm so I ended up going on Sunday instead.
