After its opening in 2010, Amuse quickly discovered that it was too small to accommodate the demand and had to turn away many eager visitors.

When the old Arubaville/Marandi property became available, just behind the airport, on its own lovely little beach, Chef Patrick jumped at the chance to reinvent his popular restaurant with a more romantic theme. What began as small bites and small plates paired with fine wines in Amuse Bistro’s original restaurant has evolved to larger plates and full surprise menus. Chef Patrick creates daily carte blanche three- or five-course options, also available paired with wines. The new location affords some of the island’s most spectacular sunsets over the sea. Amuse is romance at its most delightful.
