Great lunch at Senses restaurant

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!

Quality fine dining in the heart of Amsterdam

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.

Great place for private or business dinner

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.

great food, very nice place and very good service

Have visited several times for both dinner and lunch and it was always very nice experience. Great combination of tastes, great presentation and fulfilling menu (mainly if you opt for more courses ones). Very nice and friendly service, highly professional but still remaining friendly and chatty. Lunch menu is bit quicker than dinner menu- lunch is from 1 to 1,5 for full menu and dinner is 2 to 3 hours for full menu. Highly recommended!!!

One of the most amazing places

This place is simply amazing. The chef makes such food in combinations with flavors that you just simply want to eat here every day of your life. My girlfriend was amazed with this place and experience in it. I can't wait to come here again.

The refined lightness of being

This restaurant created the perfect gastronomy. In every dish of the chef's menu, there was a balance of aroma, presentation and gourmet taste. The refined lightness of being is what I would say is the essence of the evening. Service was impeccable too, customised, non intrusive yet attentive.

New experience

what an amazing experience, from the moment we arrived to the very end. The chef behind the senses experience really shows you new Flavours with each course, presenting them in an elegant way. I would recommend anyone to go here. The waiters are professional and explain each dish Well.

Lived up to its name!

Amazing experience from reservation until end of service. Myself and my girlfriend visited Senses to celebrate her birthday and we both agreed this was the best meal of our life. Staff was really friendly, responding to all our questions with a big smile on their face. Food was above our expectations, wines were well matched, for those 4 hours (5-course dinner) we were there we were in heaven. We are very grateful to have had the chance to dine at such an amazing establishment.

Amazing tasting menu

We had the 5-course dinner, and the chefs were very accommodating for our non-meat but fish-eating guest and another with some allergies. The food is superb and presented really well. The wines were well matched, although I think they could have been a little more generous with the wine serving! If you love food and want a boutique culinary experience we can thoroughly recommend Senses.
