Certificate of excellence 2018
Joy, Excitement, Mystery and Raw Indulgence

I wish I could thank each chef, and server individually for the amazing experience myself and my partner had at this restaurant. From Greeting to Goodbye, the service was impeccable. The staff were personable, but not invasive, the speed of service was perfect, the wine pairings and servings were both generous (????) and harmonious with each dish. The food. Wow. The thought gone into each course was evident the further into the menu you progressed. From lighter tastes, mysteries, and sensations of the amuse-bouche and initial fish courses, to a sudden punch in the taste buds with the stuffed tempura leek (Jesus Christ I loved that leek!). There were enough harmonies and surprises to keep you guessing the entire way through the menu. I don't want to spoil too much of it, because it's all part of the experience. Hats off to Lars and his team for pulling it off in style, they even gave me a little note to wish me luck for an upcoming event I have, and a little book of recipes so I might try to recreate some of these dishes. I will 100% revisit to try the menu at another point in the year.

Exciting and beautiful dishes!

When each bite is a surprise and you would love to recreate the experience, this, to me, is a great meal experience. Senses offers great service, dish after dish. The nuances of the flavours and the visual presentation makes each dish an adventure. Sense was my first stop in my first trip to Amsterdam and it set up the tone for the week. Visit the city, explore the museums, take a trip through the waterways, but make sure you make a reservation at Senses. Wonderful experience.

Delightful Unusual Dishes with Great Service

We had a wonderful 4-course tasting dinner at Senses Restaurant. 3 - 7 course dinners are available, but with the additinoal amuse-boches, this was just about the right amount of food for us. The presentations were almost spectacular with great care in arranging the food. All the servers were fluent in English, explained each dish in detail, and did not rush us through our dinner. We would definitely return if we were to come to Amsterdam again.

The best 6-course meal i ever had the opportunity to eat. I would recommend to book the place because i don't think there is any possibility for this place to be available.

Unexpected excellence

A friend booked a table for us at Senses for lunch and was very nervous regarding the outcome. She need not have worried, everything was just perfect. Two of us opted for the two course menu and two opted for the three course. We had a vegan with us and although they don’t normally cater for vegans, only vegetarians, the chef did an excellent job of providing spectacularly tasty courses and amuses just for her. The regular courses were also sensational together with the mouthwatering amuses. Both were an artistic statement and a taste experience to equal any Michelin rated meal. The price was up there but for this quality of cuisine added to the thoughtful, attentive staff service, there were no complaints from us. Well done!

Wow! Worth every penny. Worth the wait.

This made our trip spectacular. We had a party of 6 with wine pairings. It was amazing. I mean really the best meal we have ever had. Totally worth the price tag. Exceptional service. Thanks a ton.

Wonderful Restaurant

I really enjoyed my dinner at Senses. I ordered the 7 course dinner with wine pairing. It was amazing! If you love a culinary adventure where food is elevated to art, Senses is perfect. The ambiance is laidback and service is attentive but not hovering. I love that the server gives a description of each plate just as the sommelier describes each wine. The food is delicious with a contemporary presentation. Lovely! I definitely recommend Senses if you want something special.

An unexpected pleasure

We'd found Senses on TripAdvisor. We look for this type of place, and it was an excellent choice. The staff were very friendly. They happily explained each dish on the tasting menu as we progressed through our meal. Wonderful flavor combinations, great tastes. I'd very much like to return on our next trip to Amsterdam. And we had a bonus as one of the guests at the table next to us had a special course. A young woman opened a covered dish, and found a very sparkly ring inside. Her companion got down on one knee as the entire restaurant cheered. Great fun!

Amazing Easter Lunch

Made a reservation for lunch based on reading reviews on Tripadvisor and, i must really say, it was worth it! Service to food to ambience, everything was fantastic. Senses deserve the Michelin, because not only Chef Lars and his team’s hard work, but the thought they put into creating the menus. I will definitely visit when i’m back in town again.
