Restaurant description

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.

    Very good service ,lovely looking food,but the the taste this time was somewhat dissapointing. Too much going on the plate 5-6-7 different tastes that do not complement each other.Quite dissapointing from last visit.

    Superb food and superb staff made for a wonderful lunch experience. We went for the tasting menu. As we had tried this before, the restaurant manager arranged with the chef to vary the menu especially for us. Despite the late change the kitchen produced great dishes that possibly were better than the listed ones. Pre-dinner martinis were also brilliant. A bit far to go for lunch but we will be back.

    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
