> The Beesley Buzz: Ametsa restaurant at COMO the Halkin

Ametsa restaurant at COMO the Halkin

It feels strange to be writing a blogpost on Christmas day about something that happened back in May. But it's been such a wonderful relaxed Christmas that whilst Miss T and daddy have popped out to check on granny and grandad's dog, and the boys are happily playing a new game on the switch that I've actually managed to snatch a few moments for myself. Bliss. And for me one of my favourite pastimes is blogging and getting some of my photos up onto the blog to treasure. 

So back in May, Miss T had just completed 2 weeks of intensive physio at Great Ormond street hospital for her juvenile idiopathic arthritis, I had met up with her and daddy for the last day. 

We decided that after such a tough couple of weeks (both physically exhausting and emotionally draining) that we would end on a high point with a special lunch.

I had won a buy a gift smartbox dinner date voucher via Ancestry DNA and whilst it can be used in loads of places, we wanted to choose somewhere really special. 

Having followed COMO the Halkin hotel on Instagram for a while, I knew their food was exquisite. So we booked a lunch there at the Ametsa restaurant. 

The menu was really unique and the food so beautifully presented...truly like works of art.
We chose the tomato and raspberry soup to start with.
Followed by Pollo Pepita, the chicken dish.

For dessert we chose the colourful crystals...difficult to explain but again very unique and special. Each of the colourful shards was a different flavour, served with a crumb and a cheesecakey-like mousse in the middle.

Miss T loved the style and decor at Ametsa with the beautiful glass tubes of sand forming a stunning ceiling.
At the end of our meal we were served these beautiful filled chocolates - each filled with a different flavour inside alongside a crumb which also tasted fabulous.

It was a special place to visit with Miss T. Now I wouldn't necessarily take all my children there but I know that Miss T's behaviour is generally impeccable most of the time so I figured she'd be fine. And she was.
