Taking its name from the Italian word “a’mare," meaning "by the sea," it perfectly captures the essence of its stunning waterfront setting and seafood-centric Italian menu. From the mouthwatering scampi gratinati to the tableside preparation of trofie al pesto, each dish is a story from the chef’s childhood in Northern Italy retold through flavours. A 15-page wine list complements the menu, featuring wines from Australia to Italy, premium spirits and cocktails.
