Chocolate Afternoon Tea at Hotel Amigo, Brussels

As well as indulging in Afternoon Tea in London we like to see what the rest of Europe has to offer and Brussels didn’t disappoint with the Chocolate Afternoon Tea at Hotel Amigo for our birthday weekend away.  I’m a firm believer that everything is calorie free on your birthday!



Not one but if you’re going to indulge in a chocolate afternoon tea do you really want savoury items getting in the way of all that chocolate?


No scones but that can only mean one thing – 3 tiers of pastries!


Now you probably know that I’m not a lover of chocolate infused cakes so you wouldn’t think a chocolate afternoon tea would rock my world but it did!

Hotel Amigo were so cute and put a candle into my gluten free apple cake so I could make a birthday wish.


Now the afternoon tea is in collaboration with Pierre Marcolini which seems to be everyones favourite place to buy chocolates in Brussels.  So part of the afternoon tea is supplied by the chocolatier and the rest by the hotel.


The macarons passed my macaron test – they were tasty with the right amount of crunch!  I hate soggy macarons so these passed my test with flying colours and even G liked them (he doesn’t like macarons but he was impressed).


And for all the gluten monsters out there here is a pic of the chocolate afternoon tea that you will receive plus you receive the macarons above!


There was just the right amount of chocolate with the afternoon tea and I didn’t fall into a chocolate coma at the end; okay I may have had forty winks in our room afterwards but I think that’s what happens when you turn 35.


As you would expect you receive a hot chocolate to start the afternoon tea on the right note but you can change to a lovely cup of Jing Tea during the afternoon tea experience.  I was super happy to see Jing Tea on the menu


The chocolate afternoon at Hotel Amigo is served in the bar area so it means you can people watch out the windows (especially cute when the horse drawn carriers pass by) while relaxing in the big comfy sofas.


The service was impeccable as you would expect from a Rocco Forte property and a big thank you to David for making our afternoon a memorable one.


Would I recommend the afternoon tea at Hotel Amigo – yes as it was reasonably priced starting at only 25 Euros pp and the quality of the pastries are just perfect.  If you’re looking for sandwiches and scones you may be a little disappointed but if you want a perfect chocolate overload then this is the perfect afternoon tea for you.

If you fancy booking then please contact the hotel via their website here.

So what do you think of the the chocolate afternoon tea?
