                            What a wonderful evening we had. We had a quick 4 day trip to Dublin from the USA and I pre-booked beforehand. The ambiance, the food and the staff were really quiet charming and of excellent high quality. Also had a very good wine choice. Would DEFINITELY recommend , and certainly we will be back ! Thank you very much Amuse.

                            My husband and I dined here on Saturday night. I had the yellowtail to start and my husband had the salmon. Both were melt in your mouth and we swapped dishes to taste both. The mains were equally as good. The duck was wonderful f ok r mains. Portions are typical fine dining but little extras are delivered to the table compliments of the chef. The French Aisan Fusion is really unique and quite sweet. The wines are expensive. This is a special occasion restaurant. It is one for the list.

                            We enjoyed the 5 course tasting menu, taking a journey from Paris to Tokyo. Every course was amazing. Presentation and taste were exquisite. I loved the pace of our meal as at no time did we feel rushed. Service was very friendly and professional. Outstanding evening at a venue that I have already started to recommend to friends. I hope we can visit again soon!

                            Did the 9 course tasting menu, was still hungry afterwards, food was ok, the wine was better, a draught kept blowing in the door to our table every time someone opened and closed it which was quite often. Very expensive

                            A fantastic lunch menu. Full of flavour and beautifully presented. I had the three course lunch menu which was filling and very satisfying. My luncheon guest was also very impressed. Amuse is definitely on my list of top restaurants for lunch in Dublin. I'm looking forward to coming back very soon.

                            Our first lunch out in a long time and I'm delighted to have chosen Amuse. The food was delicious and the service was professional and not too overbearing. It was not overly busy for Friday lunch so we had a lovely quiet table with plenty of time to enjoy the delicious food

                            Great food and service! My wife and I got the 9 course tasting menu. We were both very surprised at the quality of the food and the wine pairings. I had better food here than many 1 and 2 Michelin star restaurants. Definitely a must, if you're in the area.
