bishopgatemusic's review of Petrus (Gordon Ramsay)

“Fantastic meal in a great atmosphere”

Written on: 18/07/2013 by bishopgatemusic (1 review written)

As a birthday treat for my husband, this 5 course taster meal for two couldn't have worked out better. The two and a half hours spent at Gordon Ramsey's Petrus flew by in a whirl of superb food and immaculate service from the polite and attentive staff.
On arrival, we were shown to our table and given a glass of champagne. The menus were explained to us, and we made our order. I should say that I am a vegetarian, and the vegetarian options were extensive, imaginative and very good indeed. The meat dishes too were apparently superb, especially the lamb. Copious amounts of bread were forever appearing on the table, and not once did we feel under any pressure to buy an expensive bottle of wine or anything like that. The staff simply kept us replenished and explained things as we went along. Desserts were lovely, and there were a couple of extras - mini ice cream cones before he dessert, and a delicious white chocolate concoction on what looked like a bed of dry ice afterwards - by which time it was difficult to see how to fit it in! We both had the chocolate sphere for dessert which was outstanding.
All in all, a great experience, and the bill for extras was a modest £60 for glasses of wine, 2 bottles of waters, and extra cheese course and coffee. We need an excuse to return.
