“Wow! This is a great restaurant!”

I ate here last night - staying in the hotel. The 3 course surprise was amazing, and the staff could not be friendlier. A great start to my Amsterdam experience.

“pretty surprise dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

I got a groupon voucher as a gift from a friend, she highly recommended this restaurant.We called and wanted to make a reservation, but for two months, it is fully booked!!
My friend and I have five surprise courses. They are included beef, zeebaars, soup and wonderful dessert. They are all beautifully presented and the tasty also can surprise your tongue. Service is good as well, friendly and considerable.
Perfect for a date.

“Go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

This restaurant was amazing! We had the surprise course and it delighted us both. We both had different meals, it was like the chef was psychic in giving us food we would love. Absolutely delicious. My creme brûlée dessert was the best I have ever tasted. The staff were absolutely wonderful. If you don't go to Senses Restuarant you will be missing out on big a treat. Go!

“One of my best meals in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

I live in Amsterdam and we after being in the shortlist for a while, we decided to try Senses. And it was an excellent decision: the restaurant is central, but better than that the food is delicious and the service outstanding.
All the dishes are beautifully presented: nice design and very good biological ingredients. The waitress asked us for any possible food allergies and was always present and very nice. We started with a tuna salad: and it is not just a salad. Grilled tuna with a delicious sauce and with tuna tartar. After that we were served a very good black Angus steak: with courgette, asparagus, delicious crispy potatoes and with a tender meat. For dessert we ate craime brulee with fruits and chocolate ice cream, Don't expect big quantities and go there with time: slow food concept. the decoration was nice: kind of a lounge and stylish bar with a few tables.
we will be back to Senses again for sure

“Top class food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

This was convenient as only 3 doors from where we were staying. Only had a small but variable menu and we ate there twice. I had sliced beef cooked perfectly, with salad, and my wife had grilled fish. I of finished off with dessert - chocolate cake and mousse ( flavoured with Jack Daniels) - to die for!
