Today we drove to one of the most beautiful restaurants in London, The Ivy Chelsea Gardens. We visited last year just before Christmas and the restaurant was decorated beautifully like a gingerbread house. Aesthetically it was amazing, a real life Hansel and Grettle House!
This year, The Ivy Chelsea Gardens have gone for a Narnia theme and it is equally as stunning as last year.
We always make our festive reservation months in advance, way back in August. The Ivy restaurants generally tend to book up your far in advance and we wanted to secure a breakfast slot. The Ivy do the best breakfasts and are usually a bit quieter and relaxed by comparison to lunch or dinner times.
Ita went for the pancakes (of course!), I went for the eggs royal (poached eggs and salmon on English muffins) and Dominic ordered the eggs benidict. We also had coffee (naturally), a bottle of sparking water for the table and some juice for Ita. One lovely member of staff was so fond of Ita that she brought over some cakes too for the table. This is exactly the type of kindness you want when bringing a 3 year old out to a restaurant.
Breakfasts are very reasonably priced at The Ivy and portions are really big too. We paid about £45 for our visit (for all 3 of us).
As always, we really enjoyed our visit to The Ivy in Chelsea. The food is tasty and the service is friendly. The decorations were gorgeous too!
If you visit between noon and 3pm (before 31 December) then a special faun, Mr Tummus, visits to read stories. Such a lovely addition!
