Offering a unique take on the British tradition, Ametsa features afternoon tea with a distinctly Spanish twist, served with the flair and passion that has become the restaurant's trademark.
Created by the talented team at Ametsa, the afternoon tea menu draws on the principles of Basque cuisine. The usual sandwiches have been replaced by a selection of savoury tapas, followed by a series of desserts that match extraordinary taste with stunning presentation.
Enjoyed in the recently updated Halkin bar and lounge, each Ametsa afternoon tea is served with a choice of tea leaves. A team of experts will help diners choose two teas to match menu selections, while guests wanting an extra kick, can enjoy new cocktails using NOVELTEA, a spirit using unique blends of tea and botanicals.
A stone’s throw from Buckingham Palace, Ametsa sits in one of the most prestigious areas of the capital. Hyde Park Corner Tube Station is a 6-minute walk away.

A lovely Spanish take on afternoon tea with a savoury tapas plate followed by a sweet dessert style tapas. Lots of interesting flavours and textures supported by a good selection of teas. The service was suitably discrete but attentive. The lounge is cool, comfortable and quiet - a perfect venue for a relaxing afternoon. Definitely recommended.

Really enjoyed the Afternoon Tea at the Halkin. The food consists of a selection of Spanish tapas-style savoury foods followed by a selection of Spanish desserts. There was a fair variety and the service was excellent.

We had an amazing time and loved our experience. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful, some of the best service I've ever received and the food was out of this world. The taste combinations were delightful with high quality ingredients and the selection and variety made it really exciting. Lots of lovely tea choices and no supplements for choosing the more premium options or having a second pot. It's definitely a bit of an unconventional afternoon tea so wouldn't suit someone looking for a very traditional experience but I would recommend to anyone that fancied trying something a bit different, it's definitely worth it.

The food was good and they we're happy to give us a second portion of sandwiches when we asked. The atmosphere was a bit quiet and we felt we had to whisper but overall a lovely experience
