Nous avons vraiment passé un très bon moment. Le seul bémol que je pourrai donner est le fait que notre Wagyu est arrivé sur une assiette tiède, et a donc refroidi très vite. Le reste était parfait !

We had an absolutely fantastic evening at Amuse. First of all, the food was sensational and to such a high quality and you could tell each dish had really been thought through. Although we did the 3 course rather than the tasting menu with wine pairings, we were treated as if we had gone with the wine pairings. We asked for a recommended wine at the start - but each course we were provided with a new glass of wine to match our dishes and with it an amazing explanation as to why that wine and where it had come from. We were even treated to some extra dessert wine at the end! The whole experience was brilliant, the atmosphere was perfect and we would highly recommended this place to anyone who asks.

We came for my husband’s 30th and had the Tokyo to Paris tasting menu, along with the wines. The food was fantastic! Every single dish wa swell thought out and tasted sublime... the wines were incredible and the knowledge of the waitress serving us was second to none. A great evening! Thank you!

One of the best restaurants in Dublin. Consistency throughout the meal. French cuisine with an Asian twist. There are gems in the wine list. Excellent service.

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.
