Chef Claude Bosi originally opened Hibiscus in Ludlow, Shropshire, in May 2000, and relocated it to Mayfair, London, in October 2007.
His distinctive style of cooking, which marries his French heritage and classic foundation with modern techniques and the finest British ingredients, has earned Hibiscus a huge customer following and countless culinary accolades. Hibiscus has held two Michelin stars since 2003; it has a 9/10 rating in the Waitrose Good Food Guide 2015, and is ranked 5th in the UK; has five rosettes in the AA Restaurant Guide 2015 (retained since 2003), and is placed #25 in the Top 100 restaurants in the UK in Restaurant Magazine’s National Restaurant Awards 2014.
Head Chef Ian Scaramuzza has also won the Roux Scholarship 2015. In late 2013, Claude bought out his investment backers and now has sole ownership of the restaurant. He then redesigned the interior to give it a more relaxed feel, and also introduced the Chef’s Table for private dining, menu development and cookery classes.
Hibiscus is member of the Relais & Châteaux Qualité & Tradition.
