Please note that Kettner's is currently closed, but there are plans to reopen it in 2018.

Originally a series of four Georgian town houses, Kettner's was first opened as a restaurant by Auguste Kettner, (chef to Napoleon III) in 1867.

Gorgeously glamourous, Kettner's today boasts a modern European brasserie, cocktail and Champagne bar and eight private rooms.
