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.

“Simply the best in London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

There has always been mixed reviews because the expectations are so high, that some peole simply have to look for an imperfection to criticise it. To me it is simply the top restaurant in London and the finest cuisine in a city packed with very good restaurants,

“Petrus deserves to be #1!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

You will not be disappointed with Petrus if you are looking for perfection in food and professional yet warm & friendly service. There was an evident commitment to detail in both presentation and flavour with every dish we tasted. A trip to the kitchen to meet the chef was an added bonus. The friendliness of the service staff was just as evident with the kitchen staff. We enjoyed a wonderful evening out at Petrus and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys delicious, delightful dining.

“Doesn't deserve the no. 1 ranking”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I personally think that Petrus doesnt deserve the no. 1 ranking on TripAdvisor.
We went to Petrus on Thursday afternoon for lunch.
The food was average. Bread rolls are awful, it is hard than a stone.
The cheap table cloth was a disaster, I have asked to change the white napkin and requested a sticky lint roller to clear off the lint that stick on my suit.
It was my girlfriend's birthday, nothing special on the birthday treat.
It is not the best experience so far, I been to better Michelin Star restaurant. I would not recommend Petrus to others.
