About Petrus

toptable Dining Awards 2007 - Winner: Top Rated category
Runner-up: Best Loos catetory


Peturs is closing for refurbishment on the 6th September 2008.

With its rich red walls, glittering chandeliers, polished silver ice buckets and sumptuous decoration, Petrus, tucked away in the Berkeley Hotel is the perfect place to be cosseted and indulged. Marcus Wareing, is responsible for the menu of exquisite classic French dishes. This Knightsbridge restaurant offers classic French cooking with a lightness of touch and a modern twist. Whether it's the full a la carte menu or the more affordable lunch time set menu, the emphasis here is on taste and well sourced ingredients to create unforgettable classic dishes.

Top tips for booking Petrus:
Getting into London's top restaurants can be tough. Here are some top tips for booking success:

- Book in advance. Petrus only takes reservations exactly two calendar months prior to the requested booking date.

- Look for alternative days. Friday and Saturday evenings are the most popular times to dine out. Try dining earlier in the week - Mondays or Tuesdays are good bets.

- Be flexible with times. The most popular booking times are in the mid-evening, so take a look at dining earlier in the evening or even late at night, around 10pm or after.
