I recently met my friend who was in town for a couple of days for lunch at Pont St restaurant, after the buzz on social media I was intrigued to try it out and show her a new hotspot in our forever changing city. Pont St is located in the beautifully designed Belgraves Hotel, so I knew there would be no disappointments. It came to no surprise, that the restaurant owned a stunning and well furnished interior, which creates a sophisticated yet laid back vibe. Pont St are recognised for their seasonal produce, which is served with great presentation. The restaurant offers a small yet generous menu, this is one for fussy eaters! There’s something on the menu for everyone from free range chicken, pasta to coconut fish curry. It’s not often I mention whether the restaurant is child-friendly, but in this case I had the pleasurable company of my dinner dates daughter and the staff could not have been more hospitable.
20 Chesham Pl, London SW1X 8HQ
What I had
To start, we shared the Salmon Tartare and Fried Squid, each were beautifully presented and tasted as good as they looked. To follow, myself and my lunch date were both drawn towards the Coconut Fish Curry, again served with great presentation and the dish was extremely flavoursome, which doesn’t tend to always be the case in restaurants which serve such a mixed menu. Pont St also offer a children’s menu, where my cute lunch date opted for the Fried Chicken and Chips, which was delicious! Pont St please consider sharing this with the adults! For dessert, we shared the Salted Caramel Doughnut Balls, that Pont St kindly allow you to replace with nutella instead (this is one for all nutella lovers). If this wasn’t enough the doughnuts are served with a side of vanilla milkshake! We also shared the Chocolate & Praline Fondant which is up there with one of the best Fondants, literally melts in your mouth!
Nutella doughnuts all the way!
Relaxed & Warm atmosphere.
Attentive (child friendly too)
