It’s not just any tapas restaurant. It’s tapas with an eclectic Spanish twist. It’s Amada, and it’s delicious.

Located right in the heart of old city in Philadelphia, PA, and more recently in New Jersey, Arizona, and California, this cultural establishment will leave impressions on your palate.

The tapas style menu was born out of legend that wine should be served with small bites of food to preserve health. This menu boasts tapas style items with a unique flair.

Spain’s location, bordered by Africa and Europe, provides both a Mediterranean and Spanish influence on their typical cuisine. Chef Jose Garces of Amada wants that to be evident in each dish he creates. The menu has both style dishes and some that intermingle their flavors together creating bites you’ll never forget.

You can choose from cured meats, soups and salads, traditional tapas, grilled plates, vegetarian dishes, meats, and fish. Some of their most popular selections include the Spanish Octopus, Garlic Shrimp, and Lobster Paella.

The 40 bottle wine list features grapes from Spain, South America, Portugal, Italy, France, and California. They also serve 3 types of Sangria, a wine punch characteristic of Spain and Portugal.

Dishes are shared and most cost between $7-16. Reservations are suggested on the weekends and valet parking is available.
