Ideally located on Dawson Street, Amuse is a bijoux 40-seater restaurant owned and run by a couple, Joanna & Conor Dempsey. Conor leads the kitchen to create his own modern French-Asian style cuisine, unique in style to anywhere else in the city. The ambience in the restaurant is warm and friendly, with a professional and discreet service. An interesting and delightful wine list to complement the menus.

Amuse Ratings and Reviews
We had a lovely lunch at Amuse when visiting Dublin, upon recommendation of a friend who is from the area. The service was very good (although we would have liked the wine to arrive a bit sooner ;-)), knowledgable and friendly. The food (we both had a two-course meal) was absolutely excellent. We will certainly be back!
Overall I really enjoyed dinner here and would recommend. However, I felt the Paris to Tokyo tasting menu was a little repetitive in terms of flavours. And there was absolutely no justification for a hefty surcharge on both the Wagyu rump and the cheese selection ( a not very interesting choice from Sheridans).
Food was amazing, the portion sizes were perfect for a 9 course tasting menu. The best teaching menu I have ever had, because of balance of flavours, portion sizes and overall presentation. The restaurant its self could do with a refurbishing to be on the level of the green house. But overall very impressed with the service and food.
Amazing! Have been lucky enough to eat in a couple of michelin star restaurants but Amuse tops them all - it certainly deserves one. We dined there on Thursday night 3 August and opted for the 9 course tasting meal and every course was just bursting with flavours. Best meal ever and most amazing 4 hour food experience. Can't wait to return!
The restaurant is very stylish, with a sophisticated ambiance. White table linen and shining glassware. Service was excellent with great attention to detail. Our waiter was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The food was outstanding. Cooked to perfection. Great flavours, unusual combinations fused beautifully and presented so stylishly.
We will definitely return
Overall, I found Amuse to be a good experience, I was a little diissspoinyrd with my main course, due to the fact that Kimchi was added to my dish of Guinean fowl, as this is an extremely spicey hot addition I found it to be completely inappropriate and in my view was completely out of place with this dish. I did mention this to the waiter and he said he would inform the Chef!!
Amazing, Amazing. Everything about this meal was superb, superb food, superb wine pairing, superb service, amazingly friendly and helpful staff not to mention a great atmosphere. Not cheap but if you appreciate the really nice things in life this is the place to go in Dublin.
As ever, a superb dining experience with excellent service. Only bad point was major difficulty in making a booking. Phone on answer mode with no return call having left message. This happened on two separate occasions so much so that I thought the restaurant had gone out of business. Thankfully it hasn't!
In my view, Amuse serves some of the best food in Dublin. My wife and I have dined here on numerous occasions. I find it hard to believe that the Michelin inspectors have failed to award it a star so far. The cooking is a very original French-Japanese fusion: no other kitchen in Dublin is producing food like this. If you are looking for a distinctive fine dining experience you really should try this restaurant.
Big prices,small quantities .
I ate here with a friend recently and was very disappointed. The food itself was very different and beautifully presented. However it was served on cold plates and the food itself was only tepid. My main problem was that the portions were tiny and poor value for money. The service wasn't great either. We had to ask for our wine to be refilled on a couple of occasions.
Myself and my husband celebrated Christmas Eve at Amuse, it was our second time to visit this restaurant, we love it here. The food is exquisite, the service is fantastic, top class experience. We would recommend it for what ever the occasion.. it's a must.
