Took the £45 tasting menu including wine - first day entry into force. As usual, every plate a work of art, food absolutely delicious, service from charming and well informed efficient staff. Endor always a pleasure - watch out for the doughnut - what a surprise

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.

    We both had the lunch tasting menu with the accompanying wines. The highlight of our visit to Amesta was the person who served us. He combined professionalism with friendliness, knowledge of the food and wines, and humour.

    All the dishes presented were visually outstanding and displayed great technical competence by the kitchen. The focus of the restaurant is clearly on the visual impact. However, almost all the food was bland and some of it quite tasteless. Also, some of the dishes were, to me, silly. Why would anyone put one cooked mussel at the bottom of a small glass of "tomato soup"??

    This could be a great restaurant if they re-thought the menu and focused an producing dishes with flavour/s and only then decided how to present them with visual appeal.

    Lunch for two people with a glass of fizz to begin; coffee; and a glass of Climens '09 was £346 (including service). For this price the food should be memorable, however, it was only the service that was memorable.

    I celebrated my Birthday at Amesta and what a Birthday meal it was. the tasting menu with accompanying wines was outstanding value for money for dinner at a Michelin starred restaurant. The food was amazing and really provoked the senses.

    The staff really made my birthday special they were friendly, informative and attentive and very funny too.

    I highly recommend Amesta, the food and staff made my Birthday one to remember for a long time.

    Service was excellent. Lunch was delicious. I had an issue with one dish but cannot fault the manner in which it was dealt with. I will definitely recommend them.

    My dining experience was very interesting and delicious!

    We had the tasting menu. A couple of dish elements didn't quite work for us but overall the meal was beautifully presented and well executed. Our only gripe was that for a menu with so many courses, some of the portions were too large and we struggled to finish everything.
    There was a rather disconcerting and overpowering curry spice smell on entry to the restaurant. I believe that's from the spice jars in the ceiling? It certainly wasn't the food as that was more delicately flavoured.
    Service was friendly and fun, with all staff playing close attention without being over bearing.
