Excellent food, well presented with many interesting touches and flavours. Room decor was a bit bland but this did not detract from the quality of the food and service.

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.

    A great evening. Service friendly and polite. Star deal was a bargain. Would probably go back for a full on session.

    Service was flawless. Food was nice although on the salty side - tapas were all very good, main was decent but my French toast dessert was way too sweet. It was my husband's bday and they gave us a small choco tree to celebrate. Decor was not as nice as I expected but could return for food. Overall nice experience.

    Amazing from start to finish! Favourite dishes were the flavoursome tapas starters: delcious cured hams, eggs with soft yolks and paired with rose bubbles.

    The service was excellent, and the food was exquisite. It was a nice change from the usual French cuisined michelin starred restaurants. The only thing that didn't wow me, was the wine. they were good, but not great. Overall a brilliant experience.

    We loved the food. Each dish was beautifully presented, some even looked liked a painting! The taste of the food was exquisite....lots of different flavours. Well done chef! The rose cava was the best we ever tasted. Staff are friendly and very professional. The only negative comment would be that the restaurant feels rather gray and dull due to the grey walls. This is not a complaint just a comment. The ceiling decoration is very interesting indeed with the tube of spices. Will return.
