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.

    Every course was simply amazing (tasting menu) but on a Friday night it was practically empty. Recently they have lost their Michelin star (I have no idea why!!!) and are moving to a tapas menu. I really hope the quality of food doesn't suffer as this was one of the best dining experiences I've had in London

    Nice setting, fantastic food and attentive staff - what more can you ask for ? The Bookatable table deal was good value and a really nice way to spend a Saturday lunchtime. Will definitely come back.

    Fantastic experience from start to finish. The food was divine and the service was perfect- attentive but not too much. I really enjoyed the explanations of the food received from the staff when the food was served. Ametsa also made extra effort for my boyfriends birthday which was hugely appreciated.

    Delicious lunch at Ametsa. Beautiful presentation and taste to the food. Loved the bronzed onion and hake. £29 2 course lunch menu was very good value. Of course we couldn’t resist dessert and cheese which were also gorgeous, especially the chocolate wall. Delightful staff and good service throughout. Thank you.

    A truly wonderful dining experience. The food is a work of art and presented by well informed knowledgeable and friendly staff. The tasting menu is expensive but well worth the cost to experience so many different options, flavours and styles of presentation. Don't rush it though you will need three hours to do it justice.
