We had the tasting menu and they adapted it last minute for a non meat eater with no fuss. Beautifully balanced menu with interesting flavours and textures. We really enjoyed our evening. Decor a bit bland - could do with a feature!

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.

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

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.
