The cornerstone of the culinary experience is in the welcoming and attentive staff and the individuality of the customer. Requests and enquiries from diners form part of the spirit of a collective dining experience. Petronella’s doors open at 12 noon with lunches until 3pm, late lunch on Fridays and Saturdays till 4pm, followed by those who drop in for coffee and tea until 5pm when the Dinner Menu and A la Carte Menu begins, with last orders at 9pm from Monday to Thursday and 9.30pm on Friday and Saturday. Throughout the day all of the menus draw on our chefs’ wealth of experience and the personal touch of the owner whose daily presence and past years spent in the restaurant business and no less in the area of tourism, continue to be relied on. Already customers have remarked on ‘the delicious tea and house biscuits’. The chefs’ modern approaches to current demands such as the individualized nature of for example a gluten free or vegetarian menu are now part of the evening experience.
