OPENS 9 NOVEMBER 2019
The original location for glitzy Amazonico is found in Madrid, Spain and is known for its jungle-inspired interiors and celeb pulling power – everyone from Spanish socialites to politicians have been spotted dining at the restaurant.
This first London outpost occupies the former Allied Irish Bank building on Mayfair’s bustling Berkeley Square and sports the restaurant’s famed rainforest-style interiors, including green awnings at the front emblazoned with the Amazonico logo. Punters will be glad to know though, that the offering here is a little more sophisticated than the food at London’s already existing Rainforest Café.
Open from morning until the early hours, Amazonico comprises of a large main dining room and an intimate lounge bar, with room for almost 300 guests across the entire space. The food menu is an eclectic mix of cuisines, featuring fare inspired by Asia, the Mediterranean and Brazil. Dishes you can expect to find include the wide-ranging likes of tandoori-grilled meats, sushi, US-style steaks, frog legs and poke.
The team behind the hotspot are Spanish restaurateurs Santo da Silva and Marta Santos, who find themselves in good company, among high-end neighbours such as Richard Caring’s celeb-baiting Sexy Fish and Michelin-starred Indian restaurant Benares.
