‘Authentic Spanish Tapas’

Amada is a restaurant in the Old City section of Philadelphia that specializes in Spanish foods. The restaurant is one of  six Jose Garces’s restaurants, which is part of the Garces Restaurant Group in Philadelphia.

The Amada Experience & Atmosphere

The Amada is not your typical Spanish restaurant in Philadelphia. Amanda prides itself in serving authentic Spanish tapas which are based on the earthy Mediterranean flavors that founder and executive chef Jose Garces so proudly instills through his passion and expertise within the restaurant.

The Amada has an unique set-up with three rooms to choose from, in addition to the bar. The main dining area is a good place for those that want to hangout with a large number of friends, yet if you are looking for a more intimate setting, you might want to ask for the back dining room.  From speaking to a few, the coolest table has to be the muslin curtain enclosed “stage table”, which is not available on Wednesday or Friday.

The menu at Amada changes frequently and they are known for their wide selection of vegetarian foods. Their signature tapas’s are your choices between the Spanish Octopus, Garlic Shrimp, or the Tortilla Española. The house specialties are the Lobster Paella or the Whole Roasted Suckling pig which has to be ordered 72 hours in advance.  Just reading about it makes your mouth water.

Feeling thirsty and are a wine connoisseur? The restaurant has approximately 40 different wines, featuring primarily Spanish wines, while also serving some from South America, Portugal, California, Italy and France. Like a good Sangria? Amada serves three different types; a Blanco, a Tinto, and a Temporada style Sangria.

The Amada Restaurant, signifying one of the better Spanish restaurants in Philadelph ia, has great energy throughout the whole establishment with its open kitchen, excellent staff, and wonderful selection of music. For many who have visited Spain, Jose Garces has done an excellent job of replicating all things Spanish when it comes to his food.
