A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US
Amaru is an amalgamation of words loosely translating to "a beautiful place".
We aim to provide an experience that is one of excitement, intrigue and intimacy. Located in the
inner-city suburb of Armadale with a maximum seating of 34 guests, the open concept dining
room offers a beautiful connection between the diner and the creations of the kitchen.
We offer a tasting menu inspired by exquisite Australian produce, prepared and inspired by
culinary techniques from around the globe in the hope to evoke the senses and challenge the
imagination along the way. The menu is revealed and delivered by the entire team of chefs,
waiters and sommeliers who carefully guide our guests through each serving, which may be
accompanied by a variety of beverage options from our extensive cellar or house made infusions
We look forward to welcoming you to Amaru.
