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.

“Not the best in London”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Had chef's menu with my wife last week at Petrus. We have eaten in most of the Michelin-starred restaurants in London and have to say Petrus deserves it's one star rating, but no more, and therefore cannot be the 'best in London@. Chef's menu is a starter, fish, main and the two deserts!! Or you can opt for a cheese alternative (£6 extra!). Both of us had this option and both v. dissapointed. Can't see any reason to return.

“Fantastic service and delicious food to boot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

I’m really being spoilt but I must indulge while I’m all the way over here. Another fantastic dinner in a lovely polished setting with professional service to match the professional food served. I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience with the highlight being the main course of roast duck. What a fantastic jus so full of flavour it absolutely transforms the meal and steals the show from the perfectly cooked and roasted succulent duck. Of course, there was consistency across all the dishes and the signature dessert of the chocolate sphere presented not only theatre, but such amazing chocolate decadence. If there is a meal to finish off the night, this was it.

“London's Superior Michelin Star Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

A Superior Michelin Star restaurant with the finest of Wine's and foods is why this restaurant is a must to book for dinner. The service is done to perfection, and the menu a dream to eat, fresh lobster, ravioli to die for, and starters to wish you where here very day. I did not have to pay the bill, as we where here on business, so we could have anything we set our eyes on. There is only one word to sum up this restaurant................EXQUISITE !

“Exemplary service and exquisite food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

Book in advance! Tried booking 30 days out and found our options were limited to late evening (10:00 p.m.). We were greatly warmly by the reception clerk and immediately seated. The service was perfection: not too fussy, not too intrusive, but very attentive. While we had an assigned waiter, it was clear the whole staff saw us as their customers. Wearing jeans and a polo, one might think I would not get the same attention as the guys in the Armani suits sitting a few feet away. But nothing could be further from the truth. I was treated like the most important person in the restaurant... as was every one I could observe. The food to Devine. We both had the 5 course chef's selection. Started with complimentary bites and a soup. Then foie gras, sea scallops, pork fillet (my main) and duck (dining partners main), cheese, and chocolate sphere. The sea scallops were literally the best I've ever had... perfectly seared on the outside, moist and tender inside. The pork was fork tender. The chocolate sphere was unique, rich. Lots of extras. The price is high but I think well worth it: £218 for two chef's menu (£75 each), plus 2 glasses of wine and one cocktail, service included.
