If you want to try this restaurant, ask no to be served by a waitress named "Tamara". Rude, ironic and racist. Despite the fact that neither she looks from holland, expect to hear jokes if you are from Latin America. The dishes takes too long to be served (average 30mins each one if you go for the 4 courses menu),... More

We had such a wonderful evening last night at senses. We went there for the first time to celebrate my husband's birthday.

I payed 50,00eur for a 4 course menu based on pumpkins, regular proteins and an ironic waitress. Don't recommend at all to users.
