Te Amo makes its intentions clear as you walk in. Bright red sofas and shimmery golden pillows by the door. The restaurant tries to create some variance with the other end relatively bare save for abstract art and straight lines. Techno music from the DJ at another corner hints at bar-lounge ambitions. Te Amo’s menu takes inspiration from Latin American and Italian cuisine in no particular order. Our plate of 'Red Salad' promised beetroot, pomegranate and minced meat and delivered dry morsels of lamb, beets, corn kernels and limp lettuce in an unmemorable dressing. The 'Causa Croquette' was a munch-ey cylinder of mashed potatoes but skimped on the filling with only a finger-full of minced shrimp. 'Lomo Saltodo', plated as a Peruvian speciality, was overcooked dry sliced lamb and freezer-to-fryer French fries. Our 'Tiramisu' was thick mascarpone on a cracker base and a dusting of cocoa powder. Rather dry without any coffee liqueur and served with 2 'Ladyfinger Biscuits'. Te Amo also has an outdoor section which should be great during daytime in the colder months.
