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.

The food is obviously well thought out, but not everyone will like the "surprise tasting menu" philosophy (you choose 3, 4, 5, 6 courses, but don't know the dishes). This makes wine pairing very difficult if not impossible, in which case you must then opt for the Restaurant's wine pairing selection. Overall we were underwhelmed, though not dissatisfied about any aspect. Lacked a little "wow" in the dishes in terms of taste, for the money you should really have an element of this.

Our experience at senses was extremely special. I couldn't say anything bad about any of the dishes that we had. The service was very careful but not invasive. Definitely a place to come back to

A wonderful and very different experience, it's sometime good to experience tastes that you might not necessarily order from the menu.
Staff were so helpful and friendly.
Highly recommended.

Had a lunch there. Nice place with good service. Good quality-price combination. That was my first time there, so I chose 4-courses tasting menu: some dishes were good, some were very good. Nothing overwhelming, well balanced taste, so i would say it's a safe choice for everyone. Perfect size portions for the tasting menu. Will I return back? Yes. Tasting menu without alcohol: 40 eur

Good quality and very original menu. The servuce is also good. Some limitation in the choice... i mean you cannot choose something outside the standard menu, and the menu is unknown. Too long the time between each course.

My husband and I had a 3 course lunch @ Senses restaurant in the Vijzelstraat in Amsterdam center. We thoroughly enjoyed the choices the chef made for us. The food was outstanding and if possible the presentation even better. The dishes were picture-perfect and delicious in a relaxed atmosphere with pleasant service. The glass of white wine we enjoyed with the meal rounded out the flavors very nicely and although we normally don't have dessert we were very happy we did this time. A delight for the Senses we would highly recommend.

Hi Goodeats,
Thank you so much for sharing your experience at Senses here on Iens. Your recommendation is much appreciated. Great to read how much you enjoyed the overall experience and the white wine rounded out all the flavors. I'm glad you were amused with the dessert even though you normally don't have dessert. It's a treat for us to read you enjoyed it so much.

We would love to have you as our guests again anytime soon!

Warm regards,

Sandra Lopez

As a sort of semi local, we often went out to hunt good (food) restaurant. Senses is definitely much much more beyond average good restaurants. With small and organized open kitchen, it created amazing and high level food both for visual and flavor pleasure. The carefully chosen ingredients and reconstructed flavor combination present the amazing ideas and culinary skills of chefs. Together with good services, i do wish the chef could achieve what he would like to.

Went for the Iens Diner Dagen and had the suggested 3 course menu. The food was superb and better than we had expected. Every bite was enjoyable so as every sip of the wonderful suggested wines. The staff was incredibly friendly and found the time to explain dishes that they were serving, down to the last ingredient. We will definitely go back.

We went there with the groupon we had bought. It was so delicious, amazing flavors I had never tasted before in this combination. Service was great. The diamant steak was one of the best cooked meat I have ever eaten. The dessert was one of a kind. Een aanrader!!

-Amazing place , Senses restaurant is cosy and not showing off interior makes you feel in a young local restaurant.
- The plate design of the plates, and the colors contrast are indeed the ones of a more unique restaurant.
" my best surprise was the sides of the perfectly cooked meet (eye rib steak) : fresh spinach leaves , delicious mini mushroom croquette, lentils arranged like winter cooked. the meet sauce tasted like was a powerfull meet juice reduction,
Regarding the price I find it very balanced for a 4 course menu, and thankd to the nice portions sie, you don t feel too full when you go out, just full of taste and flavours in your mouth nose and mind !
I heard they will have a new Spring menu coming out in May,
I will come back !
