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.

Customer reviews for Ametsa with Arzak Instruction
(**** 25 June 2016 by Ken Donner from Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea
Very slow - more than an hour before starter arrived. Very disappointing food - soggy scallops, and soggy and tasteless sea bass, and very little of it. Rioja was good. Hugely over-expensive for what we had.

EXCELLENT AND INVENTIVE DISHES WITH GOOD QUALITY PRODUCTS

Great composition of the menu

The house special, the Ibérica pork pressa is amazing. Service was unfailingly polite, charming and genuine though a little slow at points. Excellent wine list, including by the glass and changed a glass for me that was not to my taste without any fuss. The dining room is austere and has awkward columns blocking sight lines though, really need a different, more San Sebastian inspired space. A foodies treat all the same though!

Everything was excellent, from the food, to the location. The tuna with burned cinnamon was absolutely fantastic!

Good value for money with the lunch offer

Good food; lived up to the standards of other Michelin star restaurants, but more perhaps for its innovation than extraordinary taste.
Service was friendly and earnest and added to the evening.
Atmosphere was notably lacking, but this is often the case with restaurants in hotels.

Excellent food and service.
the staff were all very friendly and helpful (although some clearly struggled with the English language)
The restaurant catered very well for our dietary requirements (Gluten free) without fuss or compromise on choice/quality.
The sommelier was great and the wine selection was superb.

Great service! and lovely staff. I had sore legs from the gym and couldn't walk very well after sitting for 2 hours, and the man that showed me to the bathrooms was wonderful in showing me the disabled bathroom rather than me having to walk down heaps of stairs! Just an extra caring touch I'll remember.
