Description: 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 Purée”. 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 2,000 labels and was extended earlier this year to include an additional 400 wines at a low – mid price range. They have been awarded the “Best of Award of Excellence” consistently since 2003 by Wine Spectator. The Michelin Guide and AA Restaurant Guide have fêted their wine selection as worthy of note. 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.

Recently visited this restaurant with my boyfriend for my birthday. I booked a few months ago based on the excellent reviews and was eagerly anticipating this meal - I was not disappointed. The restaurant is luxurious and beautiful however not stuffy and pretentious, with staff happy to answer our questions on the menu. We had 2 x starters (tuna and... More

My partner and I have wanted to go to this restaurant for years, so for his birthday this year I thought I’d take him! I booked the restaurant two months in advance and asked for a conservatory table (bearing in mind it was a Monday night I went on). We were really disappointed that the restaurant didn’t honour our request.... More

It's taken me a while to write a review about this place but that's not because it wasn't good. My husband and I came here on a weekend getaway and it was a fantastic dinner. Although we did not get to sit in the solarium it was quiet enough that we could head each other . The food was incredible... More

Just steps away from the touristy crowd of Covent Garden, Clos Maggiore offers quite a unique, cozy and warm atmosphere, superlative quality of food and the feeling that you are probably more in a French/Italian restaurant than in metropolitan London. Definitely a great spot to try!

When you dine at a restaurant occasionally it is easy to forget to sing it's praises. As ever food and service were excellent and great value on the pre-theatre menu.

We dined here for my birthday in March 2013 and it still has a lasting impression - I can not recommend the restaurant enough for an overall great meal with a romantic setting and attentive service. The wine is exceptional and the food is as tasty as some Michelin starred restaurants, on top of this the setting is as romantic... More

I have only given it three stars as I'm hoping that people will read this review. I can't really award it more or less stars as I left within 10 minutes of arriving. The reason for this being that to experience this place you need to be seated in the main restaurant. The decor and atmosphere look and feel amazing... More

Clos Maggiore is a small restaurant in Covent Garden, situated on a busy street, but offering an attractive and quiet space for an excellent meal. The garden room at the rear is especially nice. Service is first class from attentive, but not pushy, staff. The menu is an interesting one, not just "usual Italian" fare and the food is very... More

We booked last minute after spotting the restaurant whilst wandering around Covent Garden. It was a fantastic meal, and very reasonable from the prix fixe menu. As we booked late we were not in the amazing main room, but the little dining area was still nice with a lovely atmosphere. I cannot wait to return, maybe as a Christmas treat.
