“An experience that goes beyond the food”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

Amuse is a degustation restaurant in East Perth. The premises are not purpose built: it is not opulent or flashy. Its reputation arisies from the quality and style of the food, which has never disappointed.

It is not cheap, but nor would it be possible to deliver the dishes served, if it was. The attention to detail, and construction of the dishes (both falvours, colours, and textures) is exemplary.

Highly recommended for an interesting evening with friends (where the food is part of the entertainment), or a special occasion!

“Food was good, but not really worth the expense!”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

We'd been looking forward to going to Restaurant Amuse in Perth for quite a while, since my sister and (chef) niece had visited the year before and raved about it. Went with my partner and a couple of very good friends. We had the full package, 3 x standard options and 1 x vegetarian (which we shared for different tastes), was also persuaded to add truffle to one of the courses which added an extra $25/person (nice but not sure worth that much extra for the minute portions we had). It was definitely tasty (for the majority the vegetarian options were the tastiest!) and the wine matches were fabulous (sommelier was extremely knowledgable). But for the expense of it all, they don't really have the atmosphere to match. Its in a converted house in East Perth, which is fine, and even though where we sat was quite nice and fairly intimate, the main dining room (where you had to pass through to visit the ablutions) was really just like a large lounge room with lots of tables squished in and a bit too light - not romantic at all and the majority of the tables did appear to be for two only!
Wouldn't bother to return or even really recommend it to others unless they really like the obscure (one of the courses looked like cigarettes around an ashtray - luckily it tasted a better than that!).
I suppose if you can afford it, its worth trying once but there are other great restaurants in Perth if you're after a better atmosphere.
Cheers

“Amuse”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

I loved it. 10 course meal. Very tiny portions, but each a taste sensation. A wine is given to compliment each dish. You full when finished Costs a lot but is very special.

“Three Times Visited”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

Everything was brilliant from the moment you walked in the door. Impeccable warm service, with a very confident food and wine knowledge. The food spoke for itself, OUTSTANDING.
