Having been to Amuse a few times over the years, we have never tried the 7 course Paris to Tokyo tasting menu, only 5 course at most. So this time we decided to give it a go on a hungry Saturday evening. The four part amuse bouche was extremely impressive, setting the bar very high. The French lady was very attentive and knowledgeable about the food which made the experience more authentic. Service dropped after a few courses however, at one stage when we ordered second bottle of wine only half of the table had wine for a few minutes, dessert was a long wait. We looked around to find other tables who came after us all had their desserts which let the side down when compared to the seamless start. The dessert itself was okay, not as impressive as previous visits, felt like there was too much going on and very heavy, not Amuse’s usual refreshing and innovative style. Overall food standard remained at expected level with a slight drop in service at times.

Bon restaurant. Service un peu lent et manquant d'assurance. Belle recherche dans les préparations. À recommander.

Excellent service. Good atmosphere. A little disconcerting to be the only party in the restaurant for the bulk of the evening. Paris to Tokyo tasting menu with accompanying wines superb. Special mention for the German Reisling.

A beautiful restaurant with superb cooking. One of the very best in Dublin. No idea why it doesn’t have a Michelin star.

It was good but not fantastic. The service was pleasant but nothing special. It is Chapter one prices without the standard. I would be concerned how quiet you were relative to other restaurants that night, last Saturday.

Only knocking a star off atmosphere as it was so quiet in terms of number of customers. Actually I think it has a really nice ambience. Stunning looking and delicious tasting food. Enjoyed every minute we were there. There are restaurants in the area with far more customers who don’t realise what they’re missing!

Absolutely loved it! Stunning presentation of food and tastes worked so well, first time having fine dining with an Asian twist. Staff were great too, attentive and informative.

A wonderful tradition of a pre-Christmas lunch with friends. The atmosphere in the dining room is perfect; busy but not overly crowded. A good ratio of waiters to patrons, attentive but not interruptive. The quality of the food was excellent, as was so the case on previous visits. The bill was steep but that was mostly due to our inability to forgo the temptation of some very good bottles, the food prices were most reasonable.

Because there are only 2 sittings, you're very limited in what times you can eat. As a result, the 12 o'clock sitting was dead which was a shame as it damaged the atmosphere. Maybe they should just allow bookings as people choose.

We had the tasting menu. Our waiter chose some excellent wines too. Couldn't have been better. I especially love the friendly atmosphere, since I find most fine dining restaurants a bit too formal.

After 9 tasting courses, you’re so full but still want more! The food is deliciously fabulous. Devine food in a wonderful ambience. Staff are amazing too, very attentive but not in your face.

We had an amazing night, went for a tasting menu and we were both speechless, the rich pallet of tastes made us go back to the childhood memories. Service was amazing not only friendly but also professional and it added a lot to overplay experience! We will definitely go back!
