SquareMeal Review of Upstairs at Amuse

Silver Award

The low-lit, low-key ambience might be more rive gauche than haute cuisine, but the upcycled furniture, stripped floors and chirpy staff belie the ambition behind the pass at this quietly brilliant little bistro above the Amuse Bouche Champagne bar.. The kitchen has plenty of fun with flavour and texture on its weekly menu, pairing squid and seared tuna with confit lemon, hemp seeds and herbaceous lovage foam or introducing vanilla notes into a pretty plate of smoked eel, dressed with grated horseradish and wispy fennel tops. Desserts also turn heads – perhaps blackberry and fig, with quark soft cheese, porridge tart and lavender flowers. The fact that it manages to pull off these dishes is testament to serious talent and lightness of touch, as well as inventiveness. If that sounds sufficiently colourful and brilliant, we recommend considering the excellent-value tasting menu, with its on-point wine pairings.

Hidden gem of culinary excellence

There's lots to love about this place. 
The food is seasonal and British which means the menu changes and is sustainably sourced. 
It is presented fantastically - an incredibly skilled work of art. 
The food is really interesting and quirky - delicious ingredients cooked in novel ways, but not just for the sake of it - it all works really well together and adds to the unique experience. 
The waiters really understand the menu which adds to this - they are friendly and attentive. 
The restaurant has recently been refurbished and feels modern, clean and fun. 
It is a top fine dining experience, so is not the cheapest place on the street but you 100% get what you pay for and is genuinely value for money. 
This is a hidden gem above the champagne bar (which is also great) - go and try it out and tell your friends!

Great night out!
Six of us came here for dinner last night. We enjoyed a great meal and in particular would recommend the main course of chateaubriand for two, the pork fillet or the monkfish. We had an excellent Bordeaux to accompany the main courses and thoroughly enjoyed the puddings on offer - namely the deconstructed rhubarb crumble and the chocolate tart. First courses were light and outstanding too. The restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere and the staff were efficient and attentive. We will definitely return! Thank you to everyone who looked after us so well.

Going down?
I used to love this place but last week had a terrible meal with poor inexperienced service. The lamb's neck was a disaster - served like a fillet and not stewed, resulting in something inedible. Lets hope this was a one off.
