Aan de Vijzelstraat in Amsterdam Centrum vind je dit modern ingerichte restaurant. Installeer je aan de met wit linnen gedekte tafels en begraaf je op de comfortabele bank of één van de zachte stoelen en laat je verrassen door de prachtige gerechten van chef Lars. De chef laat zich inspireren door de vijf zintuigen en gebruikt voor zijn gerechten de beste biologische en duurzame ingrediënten. Ook is hij een koning in het gebruik van verschillende texturen en verrassende smaken. Je kunt hier ware kunstwerken op je bord verwachten. Prachtig om te zien, maar ook heerlijk om van te snoepen. De gerechten die uit de open keuken komen zijn het beste te omschrijven als Frans klassiek, met een moderne twist. Bij Senses eet je 3-,4-,5-,6- of 7-gangen tasting menu.

    Best meal I’ve had in a very long time (and I go to a lot of high end restaurants). The wine pairings were especially good. Quiet but not staid atmosphere (at lunch). Fantastic, knowledgeable server. Beautiful presentations. Not a single complaint. Pure happiness.

    This is our anniversary dinner. The staff were welcoming despite we were half an hour late. Every single dish was beautifully designed and was definitely a delight. They were presently in fine details. The cutlery was well matched with the dishes. We will definitely be back soon.

    Positive experience, very professional service, warm welcome, skillfully prepared dishes but I was expecting something more and more special! Seabass was exceptional, excellent wine paring. The bill really too expensive, even we were charged for "2 x unlimited water service - 9 euros" when we didn't drink water, just the wine! I did not protest because it was "parva materia", however a lack of attention.

    Definitely a great place to eat! Food was awesome - all small little bites. They ask if you want a sparkling Rose with the first free bite, however do not tell you that you have to pay for it. All the wine pairings were very good and described well. If you get tap water NOTE: that you need to flag them down for a refill as they only check on the still and sparking water for clients who are paying for them

    Wow! Easily the best meal my family and I had in Amsterdam. My twins and I had the 4 course and my husband the 6 course with wine pairing. The food was delicious and innovative and the service was just perfect.

    The dishes were delicate, beautiful to look at and delivered complex flavour surprises. The staff were friendly and unhurried with explanations and even laughed at my husband's jokes.

    The dishes were excellent and of surprises, we totally luff them! Every dish presented was of delectable flavors which truly excited our taste buds for more. We enjoyed our lunch a great deal and it remained one of the best highlights of our Amsterdam trip. We absolutely recommend the restaurant & Thank you Senses! :)

    Overall, the 4-course menu was good. For example: eel, bream and the strawberry dessert were excellent. Full of flavor and surprising. The rest of the course was good, but not as surprising as the dishes mentioned before. The service was very polite with a lot of knowledge about the dishes that were served. In my opinion, the atmosphere at the restaurant was a bit stiff. Change of music or giving the waiters more freedom would be a good solution.
