Love lobster? Then Belgo has definitely got treat in store for you.
For the 11th year in a row, Belgo, well known for their iconic moules, frites and bieres brand, are hosting their legendary Lobsterfest.
For this ever-popular Lobsterfest, diners can enjoy four specially created lobster dishes, alongside Belgo’s exclusively crafted beer and schnapps cocktails, created in house by expert mixologists and beer sommeliers.
We visited the Covent Garden branch, which was conveniently located just round the corner from my ballet class, so I hastily ran over after, hungry and ready to feast on some delicious lobster.
We started off with some cocktails: Marie had the Jimi Hendrik whilst I had the Slagarita, a Belgo margarita topped with a whole bottle of Slag Pils. I’m not usually much of a beer person, but I have to say that I very much enjoyed mine, especially in this lovely summer weather (yes, it actually finally feels like summer in London!)
I was initially tempted by the Lobster Linguini, but then couldn’t resist ordering the Whole Dressed Lobster, served hot with bearnaise sauce and spinach. The lobster was nicely cooked, and also came with a side of crispy double-cooked fries – yum!
Marie had the “Lobster Waterzooi” (pronounced Vatter-Zoy), Belgo’s luxurious interpretation of Belgium’s national dish, which was a creamy soup-stew and great for dipping with bread.
The other two mains included the Lobster Linguini and Surf n’ Turf Burger – both of which also sounded just as tasty. If only I had a larger appetite …
The Lobsterfest menu is available across all 5 restaurants in the Capitial until Sunday 28th August 2016, so there’s still plenty of time to treat yourself!

The meal was complimentary, but views remain my own.
