If romance is in the cards, London's most romantic restaurant is Covent Garden's multi award-winning Clos Maggiore. Echoing the charming country inns of Provence and Tuscany, the warmly muted decor, low lighting and welcoming log fire were clearly designed with love in mind. The skylight is surrounded with twining, flower-starred branches to resemble an Italianate courtyard, a delightful faux-rural treat in the city centre.

Seasonally inspired classic French cuisine coupled with impeccable service is the order of the day at Clos Maggiore restaurant, with a focus on chic presentation and bold flavours. The range of menus include a six-course "tasting menu" featuring such dishes as "Seared Wild Scallops, Ratte Potato & Winter Truffle" and "Pan Roasted Fillet of Cornish Cod, Olive Oil & Basil Pomme Puree". In addition Clos Maggiore serves a reasonably priced, regularly changing set lunch and pre-theatre menus.

To find the perfect complement Clos Maggiore's extensive cellar includes over 2500 labels and was extended earlier this year to include an additional 400 wines at a low - mid price range. They have recently been awarded the "The Grand Wine Award 2014" by the Wine Spectator - one of only 70 restaurants worldwide to receive this accolade.

Clos Maggiore has been voted in the "Top Ten" categories for "Best French Restaurants", "Best Ambiance" and "Special Occasion Restaurants" by opentable. Toptable lists Clos Maggiore as one of the most highly rated dining venues in London and Square Meal lists Clos Maggiore as one of the best restaurants with Private Rooms.

Incredible and Fantastic dinner !

The Clos Maggiore is now included on my top 10 favourite restaurants list. We've been there for my 26th Birthday and being French myself, nothing to add, food, waiters, atmosphere, everything was just perfect to me. We will definitely come back!!

First off I would like to say that the restaurant is beautiful and the waiter we got was fantastic, but the experience I got was not what I wanted. I am from out of town and made a reservation 4 months in advance to sit in the conservatory. I've read many reviews about having to make reservations 2 months in... More

Last night, we came for a post-theatre birthday meal at this London classic. We were slightly late but when we phoned, the lady was charming and we were welcomed in. We have great memories of my daughter's 21st birthday meal last year. The ambiance is calm, warm and friendly. We ordered, chose from the incredible wine list. The excellent sommelier... More

We booked Clos Maggiore for our anniversary, hoping to get the Conservatory with it's incredibly romantic setting. We couldn't get it, but I want to reassure everyone on the fact that the upstairs room is also very, very cosy with a fireplace, some beautiful mirrors and painting. Aside from the location, the food from the tasting menu (which they very... More

My boyfriend and I have been wanting to come here for years, so I decided to book a table for his birthday. You normally have to book quite a bit in advance as it gets booked up, but I managed to get a table about a week before (I am assuming due to a cancellation). The restaurant is tucked away... More

My partner booked a late pre-theatre table for my birthday and I couldn't have been more impressed. Fantastic location, beautiful little restaurant, we had a table in the conservatory room and it was absolutely stunning. Cocktails to start were expertly made, the choice of wine is incredible, in the end we just settled for house wines and even they were... More

I had been dying to eat here for the past couple of years. It always popped up on reviews for 'Most Romantic Restaurants in London' and it looked SO pretty in all the photos. We booked early in November to eat here at the end of January and even then struggled to get a sociable reservation time. Settling on Sunday... More

Was thoroughly spoilt at Clos Maggiore for my birthday. Very exclusive restaurant. Very attentive staff in a very cosy, well-decorated room with a wood-burner. Pros: As above. Great food with a tireless attentive waitress. Very romantic atmosphere. Cons: Tables are a tad too close to one another, leading to some oversized folk squeezing through gaps to get to their seat,... More

The classically trained chef creates dishes that are exceptional. Melt in the mouth ox tongue a rack of lamb superbly cooked accompanied by a shoulder of lamb slowly braised in red wine and topped with creamy mash. They also do a cracking gin and basil cocktail. What's not to love!
