Vacancy Restaurant Manager


Senses restaurant Amsterdam, a tantalizing culinary experience!

Senses Restaurant is a fine dining restaurant in the city center of Amsterdam, with an open kitchen where 'food art' that ignites the senses is created. Chef-kok Renaud Goigoux (previous position of Souschef of the Michelin Star rated restaurant 'Rijks') and sous-chef Joonas Karjalainen each have their own specialties and complement each other very well. Cooking is a process in which the dishes are continuously improved in terms of taste and structure. Dishes, therefore, remain on the menu a little longer because they are being further perfected.

Senses is a member of JRE, Jeunes restaurants. That Senses constantly performs at a high level is evident from the ranking of the best fine dining restaurants in the Netherlands on Tripadvisor. This year we are placed nr 10.
