Chef Paolo and partner Micky run this small restaurant with a passion. The food is an absolute delight and the service is welcoming and warm. We all enjoyed Amelie so much that we went back a 2nd Time.

What a find! Great recommendation from a work colleague, and turned out to be somewhere never to forget. Quite a small space, with probably 6 tables. Extremely intimate, romantic spot. The food is very good, and of course service was always on hand for anything...More

Fantastic experience to visit this restaurant. The atmosphere was intim (only tables to host a limited number of guests which makes this place cosy). We were here as a family of four (2 adults and two children age 8+10). In addition to our order we...More

Dear Guests,the starting idea of this restaurant embodies one of the themes from the popular movie Amelie (Le Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain) directed by Jean Pierre Jeunet in 2001, that is to keep a curious eye on the world and take pleasure in the simple things ... we tried to carry this idea through in the meals, offering a mixture of flavors, fragrances and also feelings to free the spirit ... and ...fly ...The restaurant Amelie is a place where you can taste good food and learn small tricks for your own well-being . The first of which being a return to simplicity, that to Paolo (Chef Patron) and Miky (Naturopath) means in first place to live according to the pace of the seasons. This simple and primary secret is translated in the seasonal menu based on the ingredients that Nature offers us only in their own season. For this reason the courses will vary according to season availability.Amelie wants to make people aware that we are what we eat.Paolo, who is rational, calculating and practical and Miky, who is instinctive, ethereal and sentimental , want to share their views so that you can share yourselves with many more people the pleasures of good eating and well-being on your own and with others.That's why for example we use pure oils, essences of flowers and leaves, and fruits and berries in the environment and in the food.At the end of the meal, if you want you can learn more about our choice of products and oils, at that time of the year, and can smell the essence used, and maybe make it your own.Paolo and Miky wish you all to have a good time.WELCOME ... in Amelie wonderland!
