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.

“Amazing flavours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014

We went to Petrus while on holidays in London for my friends birthday. With restaurants like this there is always the risk that expectations might be too high, but I am pleased to say that the meal surpassed all our expectations. We didnt order off the set menu as the choices were a bit limited and went a la carte, for the marginal price difference we preferred to select our own dishes and have two half bottles of wines with our meal. We all ordered different entrees, mains and desserts and between the three of us there was not one poor dish. Moreover the service was great without being over the top. The only downside was that we went mid-week and it wasnt very busy and without any music the atmosphere was not very lively. However I would imagine this is a rare occurence with the restaurant typically being much busier.

“Lovely service food not at the same level”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014

Hubby booked as a surprise and what a nice surprise! :)

Lovely decoration and lighting. The waiters were great, impeccable service. Food was lovely, we went for the tasting menu.

I have to say that the food was not the strong point but the waiters.

Great night.

“Good food, excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

I've been a bit tardy leaving this review but thought I would all the same. We dined as a family with our young teenagers and we all thought that the standard of the food was what we expected. The service was excellent and we were given a quick tour of the kitchen after the meal which my daughter loved.

“VERY SPECIAL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

We visited Petrus for lunch, a group of ex-colleagues, all now retired, that get together occasionally. We are not in a position to be extravagant so chose from the set lunch menu, everything was perfect, we were made to feel very comfortable and welcome, the service was immaculate even though we were not going to be 'big spenders'. The food was amazing and the little extras unexpected and delightful. In my opinion this is the best restaurant experience I have had in London.

“Total perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

We visited Petrus to celebrate our anniversary on Thursday 21st August and we shall be returning when next in the area.

The experience was simply amazing, if you are willing to spend I couldn't recommend a better restaurant. The service was absolutely on point, the food was utter perfection, the wine (Bibi Graetz Suffocone, Tuscan) was a true delight and served so well, the atmosphere was incredible and the venue couldn't be in a better location.

We were served by a gentleman called Tiago, I believe, who made the experience even more special when we informed his, after he asked, that we were there celebrating our anniversary, by adding more and more chocolate courses to our multiple coursed dessert

I have also visited other restaurants with similar accolades to Petrus and I truly believe there is no reason why this shouldn't be the best in the world.

Highly recommended, 10/10, will be coming again.

And thank you again for making our anniversary even more special.
