The atmosphere is the restaurant was very warm cosy. When we first walked in, we were greeted by very friendly staff who were all knowledgeable on the restaurant's food and wine. When the food came out, the dishes were definitely not what we were expecting it to be. We were recommended this restaurant so expected the food to be good but it definitely exceeded all expectations! We chose 5 courses and regretted not completing all 7 courses as the food was just wow! Both taste and presentation! 100% would recommend this restaurant and I personally think it is a must try if you are in Amsterdam!

We expected a good meal, but wow, Senses exceeded our expectations! Every course was an adventure and a work of art. We went for the 4 course menu, which was certainly enough, but five would have been even more delightful. In addition to the courses, there were 2 rounds of amuse bouches and a sorbet before dessert. Our server told us that the menu changes about every 2 months. It takes that long for the kitchen to get all the dishes right. Believe it! Be aware that there are no menus. You just choose how many courses you want.

Everything from start to finish was amazing. All of the waiters and waitresses were friendly and gave great service. The food was some of the best we have had and all of us are foodies. Thank you so much for making our first night in Amsterdam so memorable!

Visiting Amsterdam for the 4th time, I wanted to try a really nice restaurant and ended up discovering Senses. I am executive chef of a cooking school in Paris, have worked in Michelin star restaurant and trust me, I wasn’t disappointed. The courses looked amazing and the food was greatly executed and really well balanced. The selection of wine was really nice too according to my boyfriend. I am pregnant and everything was adapted to my condition in order for me to have the best possible experience. The waiter was really professional too. Overall, it was a great lunch. Senses, if not yet a Michelin star restaurant, certainly deserves one!

Our first forage into fine dining in Amsterdam was a resounding success. Senses was quality-driven from the moment we walked in to the moment we left a couple of hours later. We had the 5 course tasting menu at lunch which was just the right size to aqppreciate all the flavours and still be able to enjoy the city's attractions that afternoon. A very friendly welcome from the excellent maitre d who couldn't have been more helpful or informative. We couldn't quite work out a flavour in the pre-dessert and went through the ingredients we thought we'd spotted but this guy knew everything that had gone into the dish and explained it all carefully. All the courses were excellent. A raw fish starter, some sort of ceviche, was spectacular yet relatively simple. The key is allowing the food's characters to shine, and the accompanying ingredients simply highlight the dish's core flavours. It worked a treat as everything we had was delicious. The red deer main was so tender when so often restaurants don't get it right. We had a wine pairing but as we were on holiday had an excellent Chardonnay as well. Dining at this level is never going to be cheap, and we expected that, but I thought the wine list was actually very competitively priced. Overall it might have been a pricey meal but i felt we got value for money as it was that good. Great meal, great service, an all round great experience.

I had a business dinner at this place and it was great. The courses will take time so you have a great opportunity to talk. It's not loud in the restaurant and the atmosphere is great. The waiters are very friendly and explain the individual courses. The food is fantastic.The combinations are exotic and very tasty.
