"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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
