Both the food (and wine) and the staff are wonderful. Food is delicate, beautifully presented and covers every sense and texture. The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and non-intrusive, a perfect compliment to the food.

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.

    Excellent food and service, desserts were fantastic!

  • (((** 15 July 2017 by Steve Morantz from London

    Overall, good but not excellent. This restaurant has one Michelin star and so I expected excellence all round. We had the long tasting menu for £110 each. The positives were, generally the food was attractive, a little different and had some good flavours; for £110 it was good value in terms of variety and volume. Service was polite and respectful. The main reasons for not being excellent are: slow service between courses; hot courses being served lukewarm; air conditioning too high, so my female guests had to put jackets on to avoid the cold; maybe this is a little strange to say, but the tasting menu is too long, better to upgrade some elements rather than three desserts for example, while the dishes were briefly described, there appeared to be no 'story' or journey, nor anything specifically Basque. On receiving my tuna dish, which was nice, I asked 'what makes this a Basque take on tuna', the response was 'the tuna comes from Spain'! So, probably worth the trip, but due to the kitchen service, we were tired and wanting it to end, we waved away the final dessert so we could go. Ambience of the restaurant, good, nice garden view, relaxed. The table for three we were given was a 4/6 person rectangle, which made it feel like an interview for me, as I sat on my own, facing my two guests.

    the scallop and the cod is not fresh and taste enough, but all others are perfect, especially the egg on leaf, pork and the dessert

    OK experience - wasn't blown away by the food or service - some dishes were great (john dory, iberian pork) but others just average and ambience was just ok.
