This Michelin-starred restaurant at The Halkin Hotel comes from the Arzak family - famed for their eponymous, three Michelin-starred restaurant in San Sebastian, Spain. Ametsa offers a similarly intricate showcase of New Basque cuisine, with contemporary interpretations of classic dishes from the north-east of Spain.
The menu might include dishes such as seasonal vegetables with sesame and summer truffle, grouse with dry apricot mousse and golden berries, suckling pig on a bed of carob crumbs, and leche 'tostada' con helado de piña asada - a dessert of clove custard, toasted milk and pineapple ice cream.
A tasting menu - with or without wine pairing - is available alongside the a la carte at dinner, with a set lunch menu (currently £27.50 for three courses) offering a more accessible option. Sherries and Spanish wine dominate the wine list.
The restaurant's interior was designed by London-based Ab Rogers Design, who took inspiration from the raw aesthetic of the original Arzak restaurant in San Sebastian, Spain, which holds three Michelin-stars.
Lunch menus start from £27.50 including tapas starters. The restaurant is located close to Knightsbridge and Victoria, just off Hyde Park Corner.
Ametsa also has a private dining room that can be reserved separately for an intimate gathering of up to 28 guests or in conjunction with the restaurant for a larger function accommodating up to 70.
Ametsa achieved a Michelin star within the first six months of opening.
