Great food, and best dinner expirience in London so far. Superb service from start to end, and very friendly staff. Definitely good value for money!

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.

    The food was amazing and the service just perfect. One of the best meals I've had in a long time.

    Although the restaurant itself is a little atmosphere-free, the service was excellent. We really enjoyed the flavours of all the food, and the presentation was very good. The dessert we were served (a smoked chocolate mousse), was not so good - tasted like eating a cigarette to us, but it was quickly changed for a delicious alternative that we loved. All in all - excellent value for the £42 set menu offer (the free fizz was also very tasty), with fantastic service making the evening all the more enjoyable. Recommended, but probably not for a first date as it's not particularly romantic setting-wise.

    This was the seconded time we visit this restaurant, we had the set 4 course menu which mostly was good. Only one dish we never liked, the beef was a bit bland, though scallops were very good as was the poached egg. Sea bass with the celery was excellent

    A wonderful dining experience with superb service. We booked earlier in the evening which meant that the waiters had a little more time to talk and explain the Arzak philosophy and approach to food which enhanced the experience even further. A great taste of the Basque Country in London!

    Utterly stunning. The food and prsentation were sublme only the plates could have been hotter. We were treated like princesses for my friend Sandra's birthday and she and I are still talking about it and the wonderful food. The best of all was the deep sea bass - cut as it should have been in a large steak and we are still wondering about that apple and pineapple "celery". What a colnundrum. Excellent and thank you
