Hello!

Located on the fifth floor at 2930 Umatilla, El Five boasts spectacular, unobstructed city views of the Denver skyline, with an unrivaled sunset mountain vista overlooking the Highlands. The large open-air patio sits high above its big sister, Edible Beat’s concept Linger, and the vibrant Lower Highlands neighborhood below.

Drawing inspiration from the rich, diverse, export culture of the Mediterranean Sea, and its gateway, the Strait of Gibraltar, El Five is a melting pot of all the Mediterranean regions, creating dishes without a home country that taste like favorites from each one: Tapas De Gibraltar.

    Another great birthday celebration at El Five. Especially enjoyed the pistachio and smoked paprika hummuses, Turkish eggplant, and muhumara on the Spreads of the Med platter. Always have to get the eggplant fries, which were as amazing as ever. The sea bass was a fantastic combination of flavors and textures. Really appreciated the small complimentary dessert from our terrific server Heather!

    The staff was incredibly accommodating when we had to alter our reservation due to unforeseen events (my father not feeling well). We look forward to dining again soon when everyone can join us.

    Overrated food, pretentious waiting, slow waiting, just not a good experience. Great place if you are 25 and need to impress a chick, otherwise the real substance of the place sucks.
