First Look: Amantia, Birmingham

Amantia is a newly opened family run Spanish and Mediterranean restaurant right in the heart of Birmingham city centre in the iconic Sun House on Bennetts Hill. Owned and run by couple Andrea and Marta, it is the result of many years of hard work in the catering sector in Birmingham and they have finally taken a gamble on their own place.

The menu is full of Spanish and Mediterranean classics from tapas to bigger plates, and there is even talk of Paella nights in the future, something that I would love! Myself and some other Birmingham food bloggers were invited along to their launch night last week to see what they were all about and try out some of the food and drink.

We enjoyed free flowing Sangria, as well as some samples from their tapas section and I for one am looking forward to going back for a proper meal to really try it out properly. Here’s a quick first look at some of the things we tried.

Disclosure: I was invited to the launch party to find out what Amantia was all about. The food and drink was complimentary. I wasn’t asked or expected to write about the event, but as a food blogger it’s my job to share it with you!
