"While I consider most of what goes on in high-end kitchens to be nothing short of black magic, there's a certain extra quotient of awe reserved for those who can turn their hand with equal skill to fish as they do to, say, meat or vegetables." READ REVIEW

Critics' score: 8 Jay Rayner London Magazine Estimated score

"Like so much of the food here – even the stuff that doesn’t quite work – it shows an enthusiasm, a willingness to push at the edges." READ REVIEW

Critics' score: 6 Matthew Norman Guardian

"There are those who believe that Claude Bosi's cooking is the future of grand gastronomy in Britain. Myself, I hope and pray it soon becomes the past, because seldom have I encountered a wider chasm between the opulence of a chef's talent and the paucity of joy to be had from his food." READ REVIEW

"It won't be long before the Michelin men are heading for Maddox Street. I suspect they'll like the food here more than I do, especially if they're partial to ice cream." READ REVIEW

Critics' score: 7 John Walsh Independent

"On the strength of my lunch, with its slightly over-ambitious brilliance, M. Bosi will go far." READ REVIEW

"This is food sans appetite, form over function. Hibiscus isn’t the only restaurant with two Michelin stars." READ REVIEW

Critics' score: 8.5 Guy Dimond Time Out
Reviewed on October 31, 2007
"Hibiscus is that rare thing, an epicurean restaurant that takes a very serious interest in flavour, texture, appearance and ingredient quality, without being completely up itself." READ REVIEW

"Bosi has brought a bit of this modernist flash into town." READ REVIEW

Critics' score: 8.5 Terry Durack Independent on Sunday
Reviewed on November 18, 2007
"The food is polished yet personal, graceful yet satiating. This is a small, fully formed, family-run restaurant of great charm. If London knows what's good for it, it won't let it out of its clutches." READ REVIEW

Critics' score: 8 Giles Coren The Times
Reviewed on November 17, 2007
"The smoked olive oil alone was worth the trip - a flavour at once familiar and novel." READ REVIEW

Critics' score: 6 Fay Maschler Evening Standard
Reviewed on October 30, 2007
"Waiting for ages - a problem which presumably will get sorted - skews the experience of eating. When dishes are as complex - off-the-wall would be another description - as some of those devised by Bosi, it can lower tolerance, or anyway enthusiasm, for assemblies." READ REVIEW
