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 Larry Jayasekara 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.

“Perfect start to our honeymoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

Cannot say enough about this place it was a perfect night. We had the chiefs menu every single course was outstanding we left nothing on the plate. The added touches of the appetisers etc were really tasty. Service from the staff was excellent I never once had an empty glass and they were extremely friendly without being stuffy in anyway.

The added touches really made our night, a couple of gifts like a cake to take away and being able to go down into the kitchen and see where it all happened made it truly a great experience.

Will be returning soon

“The best birthday treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

My boyfriend took me to this utterly delightful restaurant for my birthday. We received a warm welcome and the staff continued to be very helpful, discreet and friendly. The food was simply wonderful. The best I have ever tried, and it just kept coming and coming. They like to feed you up! And they made me feel extra special by bringing out a birthday macaroon.

“Perfection, or as close as you can get”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

We had dinner at Petrus for my wife's birthday.

Staff is very professional and yet gives you a warm welcome and service without being intrusive.

The restaurant in itself has a very zen atmosphere and you feel as if you are only a few guests in there.

Even though Petrus is well known for its extensive winelist, the sommelier does not look down on you when you choose to go for wine by the glass (excellent selection of that as well), which is very nice if you do not share the same taste in wine at the table. It was a pity that they do not offer wines with the menu, and that would be the only negative I could say.

The food is at Gordon Ramsay standards, high quality, great tastes and surprising combinations.

Price is not that expensive compared to some other restaurants in the same class. Off course if you decide to get an expensive bottle of wine that will change, but that would be the case in any restaurant. But it is not necessary to do so to enjoy dinner at Petrus.

“Fabulous Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

We have eaten at many restaurants in London like this and it lived up to our expectations. The decor and ambience is very relaxing and comfortable. The staff here make you very welcome. We opted for the three course menu and the food was just delicious. It was difficult to choose what to order, the wine and champagne were very good. The knowledge of the staff was so good they really helped us with our choices.

We can't wait to return. If you get the chance you must go.
