Senses is a warm and intimate restaurant in the city center of Amsterdam, with an open kitchen where 'food art' that ignites the senses is created. Chef Lars Bertelsen specializes in creating unconventional menus, which highlight the culinary artistry of the chef and his team. His menus all tell a story and contain unexpected combinations. The dishes are made using the freshest seasonal and where possible, sustainable ingredients. Let your senses be stimulated and opt for the unexpected. Choose from the weekly alternating 4 to 7-course surprise menu and embark on your own voyage of discovery. 

That Senses constantly performs at a high level is evident from the ranking of the best fine dining restaurants in the Netherlands on Tripadvisor. 2019 in place 3 and for 2020 in place 2.
