About Amantia

Years of commitment by husband and wife team Andrea and Marta have brought Amantia to vibrant life in Birmingham city centre. The restaurant has taken over the ground floor and basement of the iconic Sun House up Bennetts Hill, just off New Street and very close to Grand Central station, becoming a fixture in Birmingham’s Spanish dining scene. The traditional and innovative Spanish dishes begin life in Amantia’s kitchen, cooked using ingredients imported directly from Spain. Recently expanding to house a traditional tablao flamenco, Amantia hosts regular flamenco shows and offers a hire space fit for corporate events and team building nights, private parties, salsa classes and live music performances. Bookings are essential!

Further Information

The name Amantia means a lot to the owners of this Spanish tapas bar and restaurant in Birmingham’s city centre. First of all, it’s the name of an ancient site near Andrea’s birthplace. Second, it contains the initials of the couple and their two children. On Bennetts Hill, Amantia is the youngest of Andrea and Marta’s offspring, but certainly the most bold and mature. Amantia has already made a name for itself through quality, consistency and great reviews, but these days when it seems like every foodie is in search of a default location for the Spanish small plates, it certainly looks like a good number have decided to call Amantia their home.

Here, the selection includes that British favourite chorizo, and we recommend tickling your tastebuds with the restaurant’s classic paella – vegetable, chicken and rabbit, seafood, squid and black rice. Fine old world wines, Spanish beers available by the bottle or on tap, plus a resident mixologist preparing classic and contemporary cocktails, rounds off a superlative Spanish offering in central Birmingham.

A lovely restaurant a short distance from Birmingham New Street rail station. Tasteful décor, good service and lovely tasting freshly cooked Tapas - would definitely go back.

Excellent service, relaxed atmosphere and even better food. I would highly recommend Amantia if you want quality tapas. The sangria is also rather delicious, a great choice for date night or a special occasion

Lovely restaurant very friendly staff. Wonderful tapas. Paella very nice but would be even more delicious with more onion and pepper and a couple of wedges of lemon to squeeze 👌🏻

The best tapas I've had in the UK. I was in a party of four and we had 12 tapas as recommended on the menu and which is fairly standard. The food was first class and came to us in three 'waves' with a break in between rather than filling up the table with too many plates. The wine list catered for all tastes and had a lot of Spanish wine which one might expect. The white Rioja was excellent. We finished off with cheese for 3 and a couple of glasses of Pedro Ximénez sherry (which is like port) which was lovely. The pricing was very reasonable. The restaurant styling was modern but not soulless and service was friendly and efficient. The staff were also very knowledgeable. Historically Bennetts Hill has been a little of the beaten track for restaurants but with the opening of the Cosy Club (a posh pub) opposite I suspect that Amantia will go from strength to strength. Overall, I would go there again, would recommend/take friends and family and am looking forward to my next visit.

We booked at Amantia for my special birthday treat and we couldn't have chosen a better place, although it was lunchtime and a bit quiet it did not detract from the wonderful experience, the food was exceptional, we tried the tapas to start and then went on to the main course and sweet all of which were excellent, we washed it all down with a nice bottle of carva. The staff were very attentive but not Intrusve, we look forward to eating their again and have had no hesitation in recommending Amantia to our friends.

I was part of a group of three people on our first visit to the restaurant.The restaurant was selected to compliment a Spanish themed evening culminating in "Rodrigo`s concerto" at the Birmingham Symphony Hall The Tapas served was excellent. The service provided was prompt,courteous and advisory.The courses were perfectly timed with the removal of used plates and the introduction of further hot dishes.The tables had sufficient distance from each other not to be intrusive and the restaurant decor was modern with light Spanish music playing in the background. It had a good ambiance and I would definitely recommend Amantia for customers who want a flavour of Spain.

We really enjoyed our meal at Amantia. The one thing I would change is that we are asked at the beginning whether we would like all our orders to come at the same time or not, rather that it just coming in two halves. This meant that our lunch period overran considerably. The food, however, was absolutely delicious and I would very much recommend anyone else to try the food here, particularly on Mondays when the tapas is 2 for 1. The portion sizes are generous and I would say no more than three tapas dishes per person. The service was also very good - warm, polite and not at all intrusive.

Four of us ate at Amantia on a Tuesday evening and we had a great time, unfortunately it was very quiet and therefore lacked a bit of atmosphere. Food was excellent, service was friendly and efficient. Tapas dishes were explained clearly and we were advised of how much food to order (not advised to over order like another Tapas restaurant not a million miles away). Good selection of drinks including cocktails. We will certainly return, perhaps on a busier night.

Great food great flavours and a decent ambience. Second time visiting and will most certainly be back for a third. Amantia offers quality food for a very reasonable price. The prawns are awesome with a good kick to boot. Until next time Amantia xx
