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.

    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.

    Outstanding food. We had the set menu which is currently on offer and it is great value for money. Every single dish was extremely good, it was an explosion of flavours with an exquisite decoration of the plates. Even coming from a basque, it wasreally good... tapas, fish (excellent hake!), dessert and sweet surprise accompanying coffee/tea. Cava was good and good wine offer. Service was very attentive and nice (only the greeting was a little bit brisk but they quickly made us very welcome and comfortable). The atmosphere was nice and relaxed.
    We will come back!

    From the moment we entered we felt like we were in a special place, the restaurant team were so attentive, engaging and polite. The ambience is perfect for a romantic dinner for two. We had the tasting menu and asked to be surprised by the fish and meat courses (which you can choose yourself if you want), and we had the wine pairing to go with it. Each course was an explosion of different flavours. We had dined at Arzak in San Sebastian a few months ago and Ametsa was equally as good.
