The Senses project is based on the concept of making culinary creations that will engage all senses. Our dishes combine aromas, flavours, sounds, various textures, memories, unobvious associations. It’s about delivering the maximum amount of pleasure and an exceptional culinary experience. A perfect meal isn’t only food and wine, but an exciting experience, which will forever last in our taste memory. Our ambition is to create a beautiful place with the best possible service. Chef Andrea Camastra, together with a team of cooks, cares for the details of the culinary creations combining modern cooking techniques with classic Polish and international traditions.
The restaurant is placed in Warsaw’s city centre, on the historical Bielańska Street. The restaurant is placed on a border between two architectural worlds – the modern Senator office building and the listed historical headquarters of the Polish Bank. The elegant, minimalist arrangement of the restaurant was designed by Agata Semka and Arc Architects Team. Rygalik Studio designed the furnishings. Despite being placed in the business centre of Warsaw, we are inspired by nature. We draw unlimited creativity from it. The Senses kitchen is characterised by freedom and dynamics. The products we use are sensitive to weather conditions, seasons and the unstable rhythm of Nature. We accept that, therefore we’re not always able to foresee the contents of our menu, as the situation changes every day. The signature tasting menu consists of 3, 7 and 10 dishes and is a summary of experience, research, analyses, many experiments and thousands of kilometres of culinary journeys we went on to search for the best ingredients. Our own free-range, ecological farm is the source of our fallow deer, feral hogs, the eels are from around Elbląg, the rock lobsters are from Portugal, sea urchins from the waters of south Italy and the truffles are from Umbria.
