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 COMO The 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 COMO The Halkin has recently launched tapas and set lunch menus, including options of spider crab salad, and an Iberico ham plate. You can also enjoy a unique Afternoon Tea at COMO The Halkin bar.

Experimental twists for dessert at Ametsa in Knightsbridge includes dishes like The Big Truffle 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.

    Service was excellent and attentive throughout the meal
    The tapas starters were delicious and gave a good insight to the whole lunch which was really interesting food and flavours
    Overall the experience was a really positive one and i would certainly go back as to be honest we could not fault it
    The set lunch menu allowed you to eat Michelin starred food at a reasonable price which is worth the trip for that alone as the lunch was most certainly Michelin standard

    Great experience. Delicious food. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable regarding the menu and wine. If I had to pick a favorite dish, it would be both the lamb with lotus and the sea bass "escabeche".

    I had told the restaurant in advance that I do not eat meat so they had a special menu for me. The food was extremely good and the waiting staff are very helpful without being intrusive.

    As great fans of Arzak we were very excited to try Ametsa. We were met with a warm welcome, the room is lovely and the food did not disappoint - not quite Arzak, but good nonetheless! We did the wine pairing tasting menu and the selected wines were excellent and complemented the food perfectly. We were particularly impressed by the sommelier who was extremely informative.

    We bought our 3 year old toddler with us to celebrate my husband's birthday. The staff was more than accommodating and thoughtful, my little boy was allowed to order anything he wants to eat (off the menu) and the chef made it for him. My little boy thoroughly enjoyed his cheese toastie with fries, washed down with apple juice and finished off with a scoop of chocolate ice cream whilse we enjoyed our fantastic dinner. The bonus - they didn't even charge us for his meal :)
    There are not alot of kids friendly Michelin star restaurants, and it is always a gem when we find one. Would absolutely recommend Ametsa to anyone, their food was very creative and I had the longoustine for starters and venison for my main and they were delicous. My husband had their classic dessert orange toast with spinach was devine.

    Always exciting to see the new inventions, the starters so imaginative.
    Delicious food, professional but friendly serving staff. A wonderful evening.

    The food was generally excellent except for the vegetarian option which was Tofu. Not badly cooked or presented but in desperate need of more seasoning/flavour!
    Standouts were the mushroom risotto and the desserts. There was an extensive selection of wines, and the wine we chose was delicious.The drama of the Trufon and the delight of the yellow brick road desserts topped a very enjoyable evening. rjx
