Amaru is an amalgamation of words loosely translating to "a beautiful place".


Amaru is a beautifully designed thirty four seat restaurant. It's a warm, intimate and sophisticated space. Unpretentious and understated, it sits quietly in the inner city suburb of Armadale, Melbourne.

We offer a tasting menu of inspired contemporary Australian cuisine designed to evoke the senses and challenge the imagination along the way.


It's one of the most impressive dining experiences of the year. 
Endlessly fascinating and plain delicious.
