Was initially a bit sceptical about tapas in Hanoi, but it didn’t take long to become a convert. Happy hour beers certainly helped. We selected 8 dishes to share between 2 of us, 7 savoury and 1 dessert to share. Price range vnd60-120k, with most...More

We had a bit of a struggle finding Amato but were very glad we persevered ( it’s at the back of the opera house) Quaint little building, the most delicious tapas selection and great service. The grilled artichokes were declared the best my Italian husband...More

Dear Scamp1969, An Italian husband bench-marking grilled artichoke is for sure a safe feedback! Many thanks for that great review. Cyprien

We didn’t think to book ahead and had to sit outside rather than the sweet little upstairs dining room (this place is seriously tiny), but that was the only regret. If you’re a couple, the 12 tapas & sangria choice is brilliant, and luckily we...More

We went for a quick lunch, but endet up ordering half of the menu. The quality is top, authentic ingredients and friendly waiter. Interesting combinations of Viet and European elements made it whole new experience.

Although not traditional Spanish tapas, the version they serve here is still fantastic. The set menu they have is quality and their servers are all helpful and very friendly. Very happy I stumbled across this place.

Hi Dana H, Yup, we dont do tapas in the Spanish sense of it, but more small international cuisine plates. Thank you for the great review. Cyprien

Dear chai7015, Thanks for the great review. You're right, Amato cant compare price wise to cheap street food. Still we strongly believe we offer great value for western food in Hanoi. Sicenrely, Cyprien

Reviewed 21 April 2018 via mobile

Had the shrimp and garlic, chorizo, lamb, artichoke, and cold roast zucchini/eggplant. All great and good tatsy flavor. Sauv blanc by glass wine pour good for price. Pinot Noir by glass poor quality. Friendly staff. I would go again. 50' from back of Hilton.

Thank onthemove777
CypVN, Owner at AMATO, responded to this reviewResponded 5 days ago

Dear onthemove777, thank you very much for these positive feedback. Then pinot noir is a fairly straight forward Pinot from Corsica made by Francois Labet, largest owner of the Clos Vougeot Classified vineyard in Burgundy. They know how to make wine usually. Kind regards, Cyprien
