I would say everything in L'Hibiscus is perfect. Place itself is charming. Menu is excellent. Quality of food is amazing as well as presentation originality. Quality - price relation is outstanding (2 full menus and a bottle of great wine was about 110€). And service is warm and friendly, with a perfect timing (you won't have an empty dish for... More

We passed in front of this restaurant a few days ago and decided to give it a try. I was initially puzzled as the style of the place (seen from the street) seemed a bit cold and unatmospheric but the Michelin and Gault et Millault stickers in the windows convinced us. We arrived a bit early and realised the restaurant... More

I really liked the food and atmosphere in L'hibiscus. Very, very tasty. This is a real gastronomic restaurant and one of the best in Orleans. We took various options of fixed menu plus good vine. The amazing thing is that in the end the bill for 6 people turned out not very expensive. The visit was memorable, we had a... More

Just enjoyed a short but sophisticated evening meal at l'Hibiscus in the centre of Orleans. My two courses were a beautifully cooked fish starter (Hollandaise-like sauce accompanied with well-cooked vegetables) followed by very lean rabbit cooked farci style (wrapped) which was both meaty and moist. It was accompanied by a sweet fruit compot or sauce at one end of the... More

Rated as the top restaurant in Orleans by Trip Advisor, it would be hard to argue after a most enjoyable lunch during our mid-October visit. The staff doesn’t speak much English – there is an entertainingly translated English menu - but were nevertheless very helpful and attentive. The food was delicious: Dana had the monkfish with lemon emulsion and I... More

We spent 1 week driving around Loire Valley and went to l'Ibiscus for dinner one night. That was the best dinner we had in France. Amazing menu and wines. Service was great. Best surprise was the price; It's not easy to find these kind of restaurants for a reasonable price. The Chef came out to check if everything was ok.

This is a small, intimate restaurant in the old town area of Orleans. It is the kind of place you would go for a quiet, romantic dinner or with one or two friends rather than with a big group for a party. The food is exceptional, it's innovative and unusual but delicious and very French. We had a delicious bottle... More
