“Expensive for what it is but very enjoyable” – the unchanging equation over the years at this luxurious seafood café, off the beautiful and atmospheric foyer of the Michelin building. Nowadays part of Claude Bosi’s regime, he has added hot items (fish pie, moules, fish ’n’ chips etc) to an offer that has traditionally focussed on raw seafood and cold platters.

(Mostly) upbeat reports again this year on this luxurious café in the beautiful, if echoey tiled foyer of the Michelin Building, where Claude Bosi has added hot items to its traditional offering of cold seafood platters.

“New menu, new chef, new decor: all very good” – that’s the upbeat view on this long-established Chelsea rendezvous, off the foyer of the Michelin Building, where Claude Bosi’s new régime has added luxurious hot staples to the bill of fare alongside its traditional cold seafood platters. It still hasn’t re-established itself as the local magnet it once was however, and critical reporters say “it’s an old favourite that has gone completely downhill”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
