I was really excited to try Amano for dinner having only been here for brunch, and was unfortunately underwhelmed. Most probably because I had received so much hype around the food. I couldn’t take photos as my partner didn’t want me to spoil our anniversary dinner (but I snuck a couple) but we had; Thin Olive bread - 4/5 (needed more basil!) Chargrilled octopus - 3/5 Chargrilled lamb - 5/5 (fav dish) Crayfish pasta 2/5 - undercooked and cold. Couldn’t taste much crayfish Yoghurt panacotta- 5/5 Espresso trifle 3/5 - needed more sponge/filling ratio. And some chocolate! I will go back and try a few more pasta dishes, and the star rating was boosted due to the amazing service and atmosphere. The staff are fantastic and friendly and go out of their way to make your experience unique. Sadly the food wasn’t on point but I’d love to go back and be proven differently!
Amazing food and service! Definitely recommend their steak and also their scampi pasta. Not feeling the decor but it's a future institution so its just how it is. Service is good and friendly without prejudice and the food has always been consistent with multiple visits
Busy busy ambience with delicious food. Ordered: chargrilled kahawai and crayfish egg dough pasta. Everything about this restaurant is fresh! The fish was huge and packed with subtle flavours that made the soft fish amazing! The pasta was so bouncy and fresh. Could taste the egg. Lots of crayfish and citrus slaw that made the pasta flavourful. Very busy so best to book.
