    The lunch was fantastic and the waiters were very kind.

    We had a lovely evening, with great service, but the food and the ambience was slightly disappointing. The room was very bare and had no character, and although the food was stunningly presented, for the price it didn’t live up to our expectations

    The decor of the restaurant is amazing! That's what inspired me to book the restaurant for my birthday lunch, the restaurant's website pictures were amazing. The service was really good and the food was spectacular. Couldn't ask for anything but more. The lunch deal was well worth the money.

    We had already dined twice in Arzak in San Sebastian (over 10 years ago!), and this was a great reminder of how good Basque cuisine can be! The staff were very friendly and efficient, and the food was excellent. It was my birthday, and a lovely way to celebrate.

    I celebrated my birthday at Ametsa. Me and my boyfriend loved it from first minute till the end. Food was outstanding, service is excellent and attentive. We think we will come back again.

    Had the London restaurant festival tasting menu. Loved the ambiance.Service from the staff impeccable especially the bar staff and those who welcomed us to the table. Food looked absolutely amazing BUT completely lacking in flavour. Almost all the dishes were under seasoned and no salt on the tables. Too many elements on the plate had nothing to add to the overall dish. Some bits were very nice but to us that was all that could be said. Best dish was the langoustine under rocks. Hake cooked perfectly but the little drops on the side tasteless. Belly pork fine, but some of us had crispy skin and some just chewy. The cereals to the side were under seasoned although the puree was delicious, could have done with more. The puddings were good . Chocolates at the end were fine. Overall disappointing in terms of flavour but everything else exceptional.

    We had a wonderful dining experience from beginning to end. Your taste buds get stretched to the max as all dishes were very creative and tasteful. Many surprises and all of them positive. One small recommendation would be to review the wine pairing as there is only one glass of red wine during the whole experience.
