Petrus by Gordon Ramsay
A little green amuse bouche was served next, it tasted delicious. Our starters came and some of us had chosen the fois gras parfait surrounded in very fresh green beans, with some more bread to spread the fois gras on, it was very tasty. My other guests had the Cornish cod brandade agnolotti with charred onion, sea aster, which they also said was very tasty.
Main course was Cornish Brill served with a very light lemongrass sauce, with Jersey Royal potatoes, and peas. Our only complaint there was that there was not enough lemongrass sauce, as it was so delightful we could have eaten a whole pot of it !!! And all our guests commented the same.
A watermelon palette cleanser was served with some lemon thyme, very soothing.
Dessert was white chocolate and lavender choux pastry with fresh peach and again very nice. Some of our guests went for the Dark chocolate tart with jasmine and lemon ice cream, which was very rich.

We haven't been to Gordon Ramsay's Hospital Road restaurant yet, but from what we have been told by our members, is that the service is absolutely impeccable. And the food is of an extremely high standard, albeit it is reflected in the sizable price tag.
We have, however, been to some other Gordon Ramsay restaurants and so far they have been pretty inadequate. We were a group of 12 people at his Heddon Street restaurant last year, and sadly not one of our guests liked the food, it was of a very poor standard. We have also been to his gastropub restaurant in Maida Vale, The Warrington, and again we thought the food was pretty poor, and not what you expect from this mega star celebrity chef. (In fact we don't think that he is at The Warrington Pub any more).
However seeing a very reasonable deal at his Petrus restaurant, that has glowing reviews, we decided to book and try this one, with 8 guests.
The great Bookatable offer was for 4 courses plus a glass of champagne, and lots of extras, amuse bouche and palette cleansers, and all for the incredible price of only £45 plus service charge.
After walking through some beautifully, quaint and upmarket streets of Knightsbridge, we walked into the restaurant and was immediately impressed. It had been designed exceedingly well, with a huge glass feature for wine storage in the middle of the restaurant.
Led to our tables we were presented with our glasses of champagne. Next we were offered on little wooden display boards, a small canape of 'salt and vinegar' on a home-made style crisp and also a rabbit canape. Not eating rabbit we instantly refused the rabbit canape, and to our surprise the waitress went into the kitchen and organised an alternative canape for us.
Next we were given a bread basket of white or rye sour dough and butter.
After that they brought along mini silver saucepans containing their version of mini jaffa cakes and jellies.
The waiters and waitresses were extremely pleasant, attentive and offered great service.
So all in all the meal was top notch, the service was top notch and the restaurant was top notch. And all for the incredible price of £45, for this level of food and service made it a really incredible deal. So do look out for these offers as they really cant be beaten.
Summing up the evening, everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal and the ambience of the night and would definitely go back again if they were in the area.
