“Flavourful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Loved my burger. It was gourmet sized but very filling. Liked the atmosphere and the fact that the place is composed by a very ecclectic group, which translates in very interesting dishes.

“Small but fab”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

I had room service and the soup was divine (I was suffering from the flu!) I was surprised how tasty it was.

“Lovely food for a relaxed evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I recommend Senses especially for dinner; the lunch service is unfortunately a little bit too informal which is a shame. But in the evening it's just a very lovely and relaxed athmosphere. I eat there at least once every time I'm in Amsterdam. The staff is always very sweet and friendly; the food does not arrive quickly but it's always freshly prepared with great attention to the quality of the produce. The execution in terms of flavour and presentation is always spot on. The menu is small, but at least what they do is always delicious. Worth a visit!!!

“Senses”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

The restaurant in the Albus Hotel prides itself on serving 'slow food.' The food is carefully prepared, organic when possible. I had an excellent Caesar salad and a perfect steak tartare. My wife had a wonderful duck appetizer and an interesting chicken dish. A good place to go when you get bored with Rijstafel.
