#1 Amber

Postby Gaybutton » Wed Dec 06, 2017 10:10 am

Last evening six of us tried the Amber restaurant, which took over the location for the now closed Blue Olive restaurant. See: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=8753

The restaurant has been completely renovated and quite an inviting atmosphere.

The food is superb. I tried the oxtail soup for my starter. Incredibly good. My main course was the beef cheeks. I had never heard of that before, but the owner highly recommended it. 4 of us ordered it and it was absolutely delicious. It was so tender that, with no exaggeration, you don't even need a knife. All of us loved it and I will certainly be ordering it again.

Those of you who enjoy wine, there is an extensive wine selection.

First you are served a bread basket with butter and their own house spread. Try the spread. Then we were served a Portobello mushroom stuffed with hot, melted cheese.

There is a set menu and an a la carte menu.

The prices are quite reasonable too.

The manager is a very personable, handsome, young German man - Stefan. His English is fluent and he is very attentive. Two in our group ordered Gazpacho for their starter. A few minutes later Stefan came to our table and suggested they order something else. He said the Gazpacho is just not up to his standards tonight and he does not want to serve anything that came out sub-standard. When was the last time you saw a restaurant manager do that?

I highly recommend giving Amber a try. All six of us will definitely be back. I recommend making a booking. By the time we were finished, most of the tables, including the outside tables, were occupied.

You can call Stefan at: 090 770 9994

Restaurant telephone number: 038 416 285

Amber is closed Mondays.

I was there with friends a few nights ago. Positives were the ambiance and new decor. Good service, linens, etc. The menu is short, two pieces of paper. Unbeknownst to me, the steaks were on a side wall chalk board (a friend spoke up). There are three different price groupings all moderate. I ordered a steak. Not sure if still get their meat from AKA but the tenderloin was slightly over cooked and good but not exceptional. Talking to a friend afterwards, we preferred the Blue Olive of years ago, not sure if we will go back. I wish this new restaurant success but I have doubts, there were five diners on the night when I was there and three were in my party.
