Great Beach restaurant
We love going to Amuse Bistro! The food is so tasty with so many creative flavours.
On top of all the delicious choices, the ambiance is warm with great service from the owners Judit and Stephen. This is definitely the best in the Beach!

I agree with Herb...there really aren't that many good restaurants in the Beaches, so saying it's the best here...that doesn't mean much.
I've gone there a few times now, and yes, it is indeed the best restaurant at the Beaches. But with chef Pat Riley there since May, I would say it's definitely a restaurant in Toronto worth mentioning.
The staff is good, and the food is definitely worth mentioning. I talked to the host, and Pat Riley about the restaurant. The problem they say, and I agree, is that, as good as they try to make their restaurant; it's not a destination restaurant yet, and with the Beaches location, few want to make the trek there and find parking. As it's not EXACTLY on Queen St., it's not highly visible, but because the area has history and heritage, the city won't allow them to erect signs on Queen St advertising the restaurant. They say, right now it's just word of mouth. Be sure to make reservations, as the restaurant can be busy.
Food wasn't bad (not overly exciting though); service we received was terrible. I won't go back because of it.
I believe there have been some changes. This is the e-mail I received from Amuse yesterday:
It is nice to be back after the holidays!
We are very excited about our new chef - Alex Tso - and his new menu,
which according to Amuse tradition, features local and seasonal ingredients.
Please find a copy of our menu in the attachment.
We hope you all had a wonderful holiday and will see us soon.
Stephen, Judit & Alex
