Amantia restaurant. 

I love this restaurant,  situated on Bennetts Hill literally 3 minutes from new street station in the old Sun Building, the iron gates still bare the Sun logo.  It’s  always great food, great service and a lovely atmosphere.  

The food is very authentic,  the tapas are perfect sized for getting a good selection and sharing.  (I recommend  3 tapas per person)

The decore is stylish shades of purple and very romantic for a dinner date, not overly noisy and yet never too hushed this is a great venue for couples. 

A well stocked bar is always  a plus, Amantia do serve a huge selection of Gin &Tonics Spanish style ,  although they also serve a great sangria too. 

A cosy little waiting area is located beside the bar looking out of the large window making this the perfect spot to meet a group of friends too. 

Dining here tonight we were quite a substantial crowd so I got to try a huge variety. My tapas choices tonight were a  beautifully cooked chirizo sausage in a rich and tasty red wine sauce, potato bravas with a light and delicate tomato sauce, cheese and potato croquet,  calamari served with mayonnaise and lemon (perfect). Other dishes were on the table but I had to leave space for the paella. Having had the paella here before I knew just how nice the chicken and rabbit version was and tonight didn’t  disappoint but I also had a chance to try the seafood and that was super nice too. Generous portions of prawn, mussel and calamari made for a wonderful meal.

Don’t hesitate to try this restaurant,  and if you think Mediterranean  food is only for hot summer days, comforting winter warmers are currently on the menu and very much worth trying. I absolutely recommend  the chirizo in the red wine sauce with a portion of potatoes, dieting can wait for the warmer weather for now.



  1. I love Amantia, went there for my graduation meal in October 2015 and was treated so well – they even left me a congratulations card and small bottle of wine on the table. Haven’t revisited yet but will definitely get back there some time soon 🙂
