Thank you Petrus for helping us forget the terrible experience we had the previous night at Hakkasan. From the moment we walked in (a little bit late, but that was not an issue whatsoever), we felt discreetly looked after, paid attention to and in general provided the best service possible.
Our companion for the night (because it is hard to call him a waiter) was a lovely French gentleman, we had a chat about a bit of everything throughout the evening. Suggestions were made before we could even request what we wanted, the table was moved for us if we wanted to get up and my handbag got a little tabouret seat of its own (something that should be obvious, as very often restaurant chairs are not designed to hang the handbag on them safely, but still very rare even in places that consider themselves elegant).
We took the chef's tasting menu and we were not disappointed. Even the dishes that we did not consider on par with the rest were creative (main course had a smoky taste - courtesy of scorched cos lettuce - that made me think of cigarettes and took the pleasure of tasting it away). Now, the scallops, sauteed foie gras and the seared pineapple were poetry on a plate.
No rush, no noise, no care in the world. Petrus makes you enjoy your evening totally, in every aspect and not for an outrageous price either. We will be back.
