We had the surprise meal and it was a 10 on every scale. We made them aware of allergies and they presented us with a multi-course dinner that was both unusual and very well prepared. Definitely a destination for those looking for a special meal on a trip.

I went with my family. The food was very good and interesting. The most amazing part was how the food was displayed. "Senses" is a good name for this place, as the food is artfully crafted to invoke all senses. I had the vegetarian surprise menu with 4 dishes, and the rest of my family had the regular surprise menu... More

We ordered surprise menu and asked to avoid some ingredients. Everything was absolutely delicious and presentation was beyond our expectations. The food looked not like a food, but a piece of art. I highly recommend this place for dinner.

The surprise aspect of the menu was really intriguing. The two amuse bouches which were little morsels on a tree branch and a mojito foam masking a surprise bite, made us look forward to what was in store for the evening. The vegetarian soup was so flavorful and the pork cheeks were unbelievably tasty. Everything was gorgeously plated. The wait... More
