Description: Renowned throughout London and beyond, Petrus is one of the biggest names on the restaurant scene. With the world-renowned Gordon Ramsay behind the scheme to raise Petrus - now located on Knightsbridge's Kinnerton Street - from the ashes, the restaurant exudes the famous Ramsay sense of luxury combined with down-to-earth charm. Decorated in subtle tones of champagne, oyster and copper along with the claret red which inspired the restaurant's name, Petrus's beguiling interior is superbly decadent and romantic and actually quite intimate. In the kitchen, Head Chef Sean Burbidge is creating its trademark modern French menu. At Petrus the highest-quality ingredients go into dishes that combine delicious familiar flavours with unique presentation. Expect waves of divine amuse-bouches and a stupendous wine list, including a long list of vintages of Petrus to make it all perfect.

“Blown away !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

Visited Petrus the Saturday before Easter as birthday treat for my wife.

Picked the chefs tasting menu and it was fantastic. Every course was different and packed with lovely flavours and textures.

The service was exceptional and each course was beautifully presented.

Was surprised how full I was after desert and at £75 per head the meal was excellent value for money.

Life changing dining experience !!

“HYPE”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

Now don't get my wrong ! The restaurant itself is lovely, the food is exquisite, the service okayits just the atmosphere its seem everybody seem just too reserved like all eyes where on them and they didn't wanna relax.
I'm not expecting people to jump up and do the Conga but you gotta let your hair down a little,everybody eating drinking very reserved as if there where in a old fashion boarding school in front of there headmaster maybe its me but the lack of any real personality from the waiting staff makes the place feel a bit robotic as in that will be £ 300 please next customer and you should be privileged to be here
Anyway just my opinion but theres a lot of places where the food is just as good for a lot less where you feel your generally welcome and treated as an individual not another customer off of a conveyor belt

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

Petrus was a delight from start to finish, the food was devine and the service was friendly yet professional. We did not feel rushed in any way and were able to enjoy our dining experience at leisure. Highly recommended.

“The best food we have ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Just got back in the Midlands from London, having dined at Petrus at lunchtime with my wife and felt the urge to write this review immediately!
What I can I say, it was unquestionably the most amazing dining experience we have ever had. The service was impeccable as were the surroundings, the staff were excellent, they were attentive but not overbearing. I cannot praise the food enough it was all delicious. I will make special mention of my starter as I chose Deep Fried Frogs legs, I had never had them before but chose to go with the waiters recommendation and I was not disappointed, it really was food heaven. I could go on and on about our experience but you go and judge for yourselves. I would recommend it without any hesitation!
