“You can’t fault” this luxurious seafood bar in the foyer of Chelsea’s historic Michelin garage: an offshoot of Claude Bosi’s upscale restaurant upstairs. It’s a “lovely setting, with original ceramic depictions of Michelin tyre car racing victories from the 1900s”. The food – from a small menu that nowadays includes cooked dishes alongside the crustacea – is “exceptional”, although it comes at “shocking prices”.

“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.

For 31 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).
