Agree with Valerie: Excellent service but food no more than okay - think bland or odd combinations that mostly on this experience don't work. Very poor value for money for those people on a special night out.


I went here for the 8 course tasting menu and was extremely disappointing. Most of my dishes were okay, but not a single dish was excellent. Two dishes was flat out bad. My fois gras had a vein in it and didn't melt in my mouth. The steak was similarly tough. My ravioli was bland and included undercooked beans. My first desert was uneatable. A mint and pea mousse in a chocolate shell. I love creative food, but peas and chocolate are a terrible combination. The second desert was eatable but average at best. The service was excellent but our table was surrounded by flies. Everyone in my party was killing fruit flies during the dinner. I caught at least 3. I really don't expect flies to be a problem in a Michelin starred restaurant. For the money, I would say this is the worst meal I've ever had.


I took my husband for a birthday dinner on a Friday night when they offer a tasting menu from whatever is fresh from the markets that day. We chose to have paired wines as well as 6 courses. Right from the start, the country dining room air, the friendly service, we were impressed with this establishment. But the stand out is the sublime food most excellently paired with the wines. We have eaten in numerous Michelin starred restaurants, but Hibiscus is now one of the favourites. A wonderful dish of raw shrimps & lychees, warm ravioli of kohlrabi & pigs trotters with Galician sea urchins was so sublime we were oohing and aahing as the tastes exploded on the palate. Expensive, but absolutely worth the treat.

OMG, after sampling the Bosi pub in Wimbledon at the weekend, I found myself in Mayfair today and just had the most amazing lunchtime experience I can remember in the UK, Only in Paris have I experienced such incredible food matched with charming, unstuffy service. This HAs to be the best in town.
