Senses restaurant is part of the Albus hotel and open for hotel guests during the Covid-19 lockdown. Together with the 4 star Albus Hotel, a very special package has been put together; lunch or dinner with an overnight stay. Check the offer!

We meet all the requirements of the national authorities and the RIVM! More information can be found here.

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.

Chef Lars Bertelsen and his team look forward to giving you a tantalizing and delightful culinary experience!
