This restaurant takes you through an experience. Forget about everything and enjoy the numerous courses of food. The different tastes, textures and presentations.

The whole experience in Amador was unforgettable. The food is a feast for all of the senses. The staff were highly attentive and considerate and the atmosphere very pleasant. You should take your time here and relish each dish anything less does not do this restaurant justice!

Almost a decade ago, I first had the pleasure to experience Juan Amador’s cuisine – that time in Langen. Since the summer of 2011, we have been several times now at his new restaurant in the rather industrial outskirts of Mannheim. Tucked away behind supermarkets and difficult to find the first time you visit, you will be most pleasantly surprised... More

I think this restaurant does not need any further coments. I expected to be good from what we have heard before but that was simply excellent! Really impressed!

There was a doubt on why we parked at an abandoned industrial-like area where there is no sign of a restaurant… thinking we were lost but the GPS indicated we were there. Maybe it was part of the mystery with a bit of psychological thingy (whatever medical term it's called).for me, it is a mind-trick..Then the baffling modern interior with... More

I have been to many 1 star, 2 star and 3 star Michelin restaurants around the world....and none seem to amaze me as much as Amador. He really understands "Balance" when it comes to offering creative new dishes as each one is so interesting but yet balanced on your pallet. This is my 5th time back and it seems like... More

Of course, with 3 Michelin Stars, our expectations were high when dining at Amador on a chilly February evening. We had been driven some distance to get there and, as we entered a drab industrial and retail park and pulled up next to a Metro wholesale warehouse, I though our driver must be lost. But no, in the middle of... More

An outstanding evening of constant delight for a group of very well-travelled and experienced publishers during the Book Fair in far-off Frankfurt. Ther drive for dinner was worth it. This is the best meal I have had since El Bulli. The staff are friendly co-conspirators in making this one of the world's great dining experiences.

Ok let's get this straight. This is a fantastic restaurant with fantastic service, fantastic staff and fantastic food and drink. It is however not worth anywhere near the 280 euros per head that we paid. There is not adequate warning of this either via their website or in the tripadvisor reviews. It is also in a shockingly unattractive and industrial... More
