Food was lovely, reasonable price and staff were efficient and very friendly. Quick service also. The chips and rocky road were beautiful. Would definitely visit again!

I took my wife for lunch today and the sad thing is this has been a place we would prioritise normally, firstly service - poor, food - poor, satisfaction - poor. To top it all off "it's a nice day, we'll sit outside" this then met with full tables and several people who share a glass of water - OK,... More

Enjoyed a snack lunch at one of the tables outside which was tasty and pleasantly served watching the people of Macclesfield go by. There was plenty of choice too. It wasn't until venturing inside to pay that I saw the full facilities. Freshly prepared food does take time to prepare, and will certainly return.

Waited 20 minutes for a takeaway sandwich when the restaurant wasn't busy and there were 5 staff members on. Food nice and staff polite but always seems to be quite a wait for takeaway service!

Amuse isn't a bad cafe at all, the food is adequate and the surroundings pleasant, but once or twice the staff have been quite dismissive and grumpy......I suppose everyone is entitled to off days.

Good staff, very attentive without being too much in your face. Good choice of menu. I have visited with my husband and friends. We sat upstairs on the balcony where you have a good view of Chestergate and what is going on downstairs. Nice place.

I just came in for a takeaway order of 2 paninis. If I'd have known these would take 40 minutes to make and come 10 minutes apart I would have gone to Argos, bought a panini machine and made them myself. The young girl was very polite and helpful but no one else seemed very interested. Seeing that I had... More

I used to come here regularly but am afraid I've found that Rustic Coffee is miles better. We had a long wait and the lattes we had were not very nice.

Have eaten here a few times now and found food amazing. Really tasty and obviously home cooked. I see from other reviews the service can seem a little slow at times but think this is not the norm in my experience anyway. Recently had hungarian mushroom soup and Italian truffle cake both of which were gluten free and tasted fantastic.... More

I have eaten at Amuse quite a few times and always had a good experience. I went there with a friend recently and found the place to start looking a bit run down including the menus not clean and stained. A bit offputting! The staff were friendly and we were served quickly as it was not very busy.

Hi - thank you for your nice comments about the service & food. What a shame the menu let the side down and meant we got a 3 :( We're in the process of changing our menu & the new design will be more 'wipe clean' in the meanwhile I'll ask the team to msake sure they do their best... More
