3 days on and I can scarcely believe I had this food experience. I eat a lot of relatively good food and go to some decent places when time and budget allow. But this was just like nothing else. 4 course surprise menu with wine comes in around 65e per head. That also includes a couple of bites to kick things off and freshly baked bread which is a different class. When I asked for some more it took 20 minutes. Because it's baked to order. The fusion of all manner of things around a piece of fish or on 1 course some of the most delicately prepared veal, just created tastes that I'd never had. Each course perfectly matched by a well chosen glass of wine that we would never have ordered. The staff are attentive and generous without being over bearing and annoying. And the pudding was an astonishing mix of unpredictable flavours in varying forms and consistencies. This is a must. Please go, but don't tell anyone until you've left town so you can get a table. It's quite a small place. But quite perfect. ------- Note from the vegetarian...! I normally hold back from commenting as, let's be honest, Pete can talk enough for both of us! But the veggie surprise menu deserves a special mention so here goes... As well as everything he said, the veggie courses were stunning - no lazy afterthoughts here, and even better, no sense that there was something missing. I've been waiting my whole life for a meal like this, it was fabulous. I won't spoil the surprise, but the pomegranate and beetroot combo and the carrots with tarragon were two of the stars. I always wondered how the bloke on masterchef could get so excited about a carrot mousse - I mean how good can a carrot taste, right?! - but now I know! Food heaven.

Delicious food

On our only night in Amsterdam we decided to try the hotel restaurant, Senses, after reading such great reviews. All 3 of us decided on the 5 course "Chef's Surprise" for our meal and we were not disappointed. It was wonderful to be able to say what we cannot (due to allergies) and do not like to eat. Not only was the food delicious but it was also beautifully prepared and presented.

Breakfast made with love

I didn't try dinner but breakfast was great with local cheeses, eggs, fruit, bread, and attentive service.

Excellent food and service

Caught our eye as said would cater the surprise menu for veggies, and they did, also catering for those veggies I don't like. Excellent food, beautifully presented and served.

Amazing food
10

Food was fantastic, service was exceptional. We had the "surprise" menu with wine pairings. We had a couple of small restrictions (no seafood for one person, no organ meat for both) which were easily accommodated. Delicious creations, beautiful presentation. Wines were explained well. A highlight of our trip.

Dinner at Senses restaurant
10

My mom and I ate at Senses at our last night in Amsterdam. It was our 2nd time eating there and it was amazing!!!! We took the 4 courses surprise menu and it was so delicious. Each course was so beautiful and creative and spiced perfectly. I recommend this restaurant for everyone who enjoys modern, unique and delicious food. Thank you Senses restaurant for a superb experience. I'll visit Senses again the next time Im in Amsterdam.

Defenitely lives up to its name
10

Had the 3 course tasting menus which we found to be beautifully presented and the dessert was magic. At 36 euro it is good value. we had a mackerel starter, veal main and mango and chocolate dessert. Although it was all great the dessert was the best I have ever eaten. There were 8 elements including a white chocolate bonbon with passion fruit juice (sensational).Next to my favourite Juuls this was the best venue I was lucky enough to enjoy in Amsterdam.

Foodie to the max

Wow, this place strives to please but is obnoxiously foodie. The server had to explain every single thing on our plates -- there was lots of foam-this and puree-that. My beef entree was sent back because it was luke-warm. Everything tasted fine, but we couldn't wait to leave.

Disfrutando los sentidos
10

Hace referencia al nombre del negocio: porque es una experiencia para los sentidos, tanto del punto de vista gastronómico como por la atención recibida. El menú de maridaje de tres platos y tres vinos, super equilibrado y por la calidad recibida, la calidad/precio es más que razonable. Sin duda un sitio recomendable.

Well worth a visit

I loved the look of the menu so we gave it a go for lunch. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious and the staff very knowledgeable and helpful. We went for the surprise tasting menu and thoroughly enjoyed it.
