Vegans and vegetarians – do not go there! Price is not worth the quality. Restaurant is now part of a hotel. Three big dining rooms – no more cozy or romantic atmosphere. Last Saturday I ordered 5 dish menu and asked for a vegan food....More

Having experienced other Michelin Star restaurants we had expected the surprise menu to be more varied and certainly to have tempted the taste buds more than we experienced. I'm wondering why it was so quiet when we were there? Wines to accompany the dishes were...More

You will find Michelin-star restaurant Sense across from Het Noordbrabants Museum, at walking distance from St. John's Cathedral, on the Verwerstraat in ‘s-Hertogenbosch (also known as Den Bosch). Chef de cuisine Dennis Middeldorp puts pure and always fresh ingredients together to make surprising and subtle taste combinations. Experience the team’s honest hospitality, an ideal way to round off a visit to one of the most beautiful town centres in Brabant.

“Orgasmically good”
To our great surprise we received a Michelin star three years after we opened in 2008. Sense is also featured in the 2016 Gault&Millau guide and the Lekker Top 500 (Tasty Top 500), the leading Dutch restaurant guide. Of course we are proud about these reviews, but our primary ambition is still to allow our guests to enjoy exciting dishes in an uncomplicated atmosphere. For this reason, we are even more proud when our guests give us feedback such as “Orgasmically good!” and “Enjoyment with a capital E”.

Different dishes every month
You can order the smaller culinary dishes on the menu in a random order, but you may prefer to allow yourself to be surprised with a four to eight course gastronomic menu. These dishes are different every month, inspired by the changing seasons. “When I am creating a dish, I want to bring together the essence of different flavours in a composition that will fulfil and delight. Flavour, colour, texture, the atmosphere in the restaurant: everything has to be just right,” says Dennis. Sense welcomes international guests with an English menu and multi-lingual staff.

Experience ’s-Hertogenbosch
After an inspiring visit to Het Noordbrabants Museum (with of course extra attention for the works of Vincent van Gogh and Den Bosch native Jheronimus Bosch), a spiritual experience in the world-famous St. John's Cathedral, an adventure by bike or on foot in the marshlands of Het Bossche Broek or a historic canal cruise through the town centre on the Binnendieze, you will be able to relax at one of the tables and enjoy your meal. You may even have a similar experience to the guest who concluded the following: “This restaurant deserves a second star.”
