Restaurant Petrus – haute cuisine
Restaurant Petrus has been around for a long time now. The restaurant has become almost like an institution for concerned food lovers in Hong Kong looking for a traditional French haute cuisine restaurant. The signature restaurant of Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong offers some of the most amazing views of the Victoria Harbour from level 56 of the hotel.
Restaurant Petrus in Hong Kong has nothing to do with the Petrus restaurants in London and in Geneva, they just happen to share the same name. The main dining room of Shangri-La’s top restaurant seats 45 guests and it is a true definition of opulence and extravagance; it feels almost like you have entered a small part of the Versailles. In addition you will also have access to the two private dining rooms suitably called Burgundy and Alsace. In addition to delicious French cuisine, you will also have access to one of the best wine cellars in Hong Kong offering 20,000 bottles and 1,900 references.
Chef de Cuisine Frederic Chabbert has been in charge of the restaurant for many years now and has been in the business for more than two decades. He is specialised in the haute cuisine and gives a huge emphasis to the flavours, even if there is nothing to complain about when it comes to the beautiful presentations as well – just like you prefer to have your French Chef. The Chef’s cuisine is crafted to pair perfectly with the wine offerings from the cellar. After graduation from the Professional Cooking School of Souillac, Chef Chabbert started his culinary career at Le Cerf in French Alsace. He continued to other French top dining establishments as well before he jumped over the English Channel to London for a position as Sous Chef at Le Roussillon. After that, Chef Chabbert joined forces with Alain Ducasse at his legendary Le Louis XV restaurant. Still today, Frederic Chabbert credits Monsieur Ducasse as his mentor and for expanding his horizons. Chef Chabbert’s first position for the Shangri-La group was at its property in Kuala Lumpur, before he became the Chef de Cuisine at Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong.
Restaurant Petrus is an ideal selection if you are not searching for any surprises or any progressive cooking. You will have some opulent haute cuisine dining with some of the most amazing views in Hong Kong and that is it.
