Celebrated French chef Claude Bosi launched Claude Bosi at Bibendum back in 2017, with a ground-floor seafood and oyster bar and first-floor restaurant which is ‘unashamedly fine dining’, with the chef's signature contemporary and light-hearted flair.

The a la carte menu features some of his signature classics and the chef’s Michelin-starred alma matter, with ingredients sourced predominantly from the British Isles and France. The striking upstairs dining room with its dramatic and iconic floor-to-ceiling stained glass windows has been redesigned to house a larger central open kitchen. The light and airy dining room will feature the original Conran chairs with a soft colour palate of muted blues.

Simply decorated dining space with very attentive and approachable staff means you can focus on all of the special details of this dining experience. The dishes and presentation are full of special surprises and excellent flavours. This restaurant has a lot more character than some of the other fine dining restaurants in the area.

From the start to the finish the experience at Calude Bosi at Bibendum was perfect. A truly excellent afternoon in the midst of the mad year of 2020 and it seems just in time before another lockdown.
Pricey but perfect - if you are lucky enought to be able to afford it treat yourself.
We are sure we will treat ourselves again, soon.

From arrival to farewell the entire experience was faultless. Dishes were executed to as close to perfection as I have known. Special mention to the front of house team who were welcoming and friendly which in such an opulent fine dining setting isn’t always the way. The sommelier suggested some wines for us which were superb. This is a 6 star experience!!

It’s definitely a special occasion restaurant, with special price tag attached, and Claude Bosi makes it a night to remember. This is fine dining but with a fun twist. It feels like Heston Blumenthal and Claude have been chatting. A real olive tree brought to your table has some very delicious and surprising olives for you to try. The theatre continues with trollies bearing champagne, ice cream, cheeses and liqueurs arriving at your table throughout the meal. Service is genuinely warm and welcoming. The waiters have that sixth sense, that only the best ones have, of knowing what you want before you ask for it. Yes, it’s expensive, but with all the little complementary extras it’s very good value for money. If you’re celebrating then a meal at Bibendum will give you memories, as well as flavours, to savour.

Five stars are given out on open table like it is going out of fashion. This is a true 5 stars.

A two Michelin star restaurant that really should be a three now.

It was a birthday meal, me and my partner ands we went for the tasting menu (one vegetarian and one omnivore). We've eaten in various Michelin restaurants and this was truly worthy of its stars. Dishes that we had never seen or tasted before, not variations on a theme. Service was excellent (while being unobtrusive). I wont spoil the surprises if you choose a tasting menu by telling you what we had but I suspect that the menu will change with seasons and we'll certainly be going again

This was one of the best michelin dinners me and my partner have had. The restaurant is lovely, the food was fantastic and the service was great. We met Claude briefly at the end as he said goodbye to everyone which was a nice touch! Recommend the wine pairing as the selections were fantastic. Will definitely return.

Wonderful! Really interesting and well executed food.
We had the lunch menu which includes wine and water but not coffee/tea. The service was excellent, staff really friendly and the room in the Michelin building is beautiful.
Will definitely go back. Also Claude Bosi himself was in the kitchen and spoke to all the guests after service ended.

I don't usually leave reviews but this one I feel I have to, as it's surprisingly mixed.
I just can't believe I would have all below experience at the same time at a 2 star place.

- Didn't confirm dietary requirements - I don't eat strong cheese and got served amuse bouche with blue cheese. I didn't flag on the scene as this was only the beginning, I didn't want to ruin the whole dinning experience.
- One of the staff tried to take away my dish without asking first - I didn't finish eating it, was simply talking to my husband so put down the cutlery. The staff did apologies however it feels like we've been rushed.
- No petite four which was a surprise given the calibre of the restaurant.
- I chose the occasion to be Birthday (for my husband), literally nothing happened, not even a staff saying happy birthday. What's the point of asking me to choose the occasion when I made the booking?
- Food - all the seafood were really fresh and the way they were cooked was brilliant - tender, juicy and brought out the natural taste of the ingredients. However I wish there could be some holdback on the use of sauces, it covers the quality of the ingredients unfortunately. Though this probably is the chef's signature as it's the same back at the Hibiscus time.
- Desert - the chocolate souffle is a gem.
