About Pierre Koffmann

Pierre Koffmann is an internationally acclaimed chef who has contributed to Britain’s finest cuisine for almost forty years.

La Tante Claire, his now legendary restaurant, gave Pierre Koffmann the platform to achieve three Michelin stars.

Between 1977 and 2004, La Tante Claire set new standards for cooking while also becoming a training ground for some culinary superstars such as Tom Aikens and Bruno Loubet.

Pierre came out of retirement to return to The Berkeley Hotel, this time embracing a more informal, Gascon style.

Koffmann’s at the Berkeley is now established as a relaxed brasserie in the heart of Knightsbridge offering classic provincial French cooking based on Pierre’s first memories of the food from his mother’s and grandmother’s kitchens.

Pierre is modest and thoughtful. He is happiest behind the stove, and so he rarely visits the dining room. Not because he is arrogant or grand but he does not presume customers want to meet him! He most enjoys saying hello to his guests in the kitchen.
