Tried the set dinner menu offer with glass of rose cava and was most impressed. Also delighted that we happened to be there for one of Elena's visits who came out from the kitchen to explain more. Staff could not have been more friendly or helpful.

Awarded its first Michelin Star within only a few months of opening, Ametsa with Arzak Instruction offers a unique and exquisite take on Basque cuisine within the 5-star Halkin Hotel.

Crafting the deep, earthy flavours of Spain’s Basque region, Ametsa is borne from the father & daughter team who head up the 3 Michelin-starred Arzak restaurant in San Sebastian, Spain. Menus showcase the finest organic, local produce sourced from land and sea, with guests invited to experience groundbreaking dishes like ‘from egg to chicken’, ‘quick-changing squid’, or ox cheeks with vanilla.

Ametsa at The Halkin has recently launched tapas and set lunch menus, including options of spider crab salad, and an Iberico ham plate.

Experimental twists for dessert at Ametsa in Knightsbridge includes dishes like clove custard with pineapple ice cream, or French toast with mango and coconut. A striking dining room filled with brilliant white surfaces and golden tubular ceiling coverings is the work of acclaimed designer, Ab Rogers.

Glamorous and elegant, Ametsa restaurant in London is a 10-minute walk from Knightsbridge Tube Station.

    Inventive spin on spanish food yields visually stunning and delicious results. Interesting wine list, including a fragrant yet dry rose cava. All set in a funky small dining room with lovely garden views. Attentive but not intrusive service

    23rd April was our 25th Wedding Anniversary & I wanted to celebrate somewhere in London that has at least 1 Michelin Star. My favourite meal when celebrating is actually a slow late lunch rather than a dinner in the evening. That immediately excludes quite a few top London restaurants that don't open on Saturday lunchtime. Also I did not get around to booking quite as far ahead as you have to for some places. I wound Ametsa with Arzak Instruction with the help of Google & Trip Advisor & I liked the look of their menu & was able to book. It is a light airy restaurant only a short walk from Hyde Park Corner underground station. Service was very friendly, the food was all delicious. The Sommelier was knowledgeable & enthusiastic about his wines. The whole experience was a real treat & I wouldn't hesitate to come again. There are lots of positive reviews on Trip Advisor giving details of the food.
