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 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.

We had a perfect dinner for our first wedding anniversary. The service was flawless. The courses we were recommended were delicious, the wine a perfect match. With private dinning you share the room with 5 other tables. The restaurant was full but we managed to get a reservation only an hour in advance. I highly recommend this after theatre as... More

So pretty inside. Staff friendly and inviting. Food beautifully prepared and served. My pork cheeks were divine. Because of being a special occasion the staff surprised us with a congratulations message piped in chocolate on our desert plates. I was so touched. They made a special night even more special

Great atmosphere in a cosy, welcoming place. Wonderful bread, the focaccia is probably the best I've had, the Rosemary is blended in with the dough and the crust is heavy on the Parmesan - delicious! The sommelier was really helpful & chose wines that truly complemented the food, quick service & great staff - highly recommended

They dealt very well with a party of 12 for a lazy business lunch, and made us all feel special. I couldn't fault the ambience, despite being upstairs, and the service was fine. A slight mark down however for one side of the table being squashed in against the window, thus being 'trapped' in place and a trip to the... More

My husband and I shared in the wine pairing tasting menu on our first (but definitely not last) visit to Clos Maggiore. From the moment we walked in, we loved the place--it just felt so cozy and comfortable! Especially as it was rather windy and chilly the night we went. Everything had charm and character, and the staff was very... More

This is the best restaurant and best food Ive ever experienced. We came here for my girlfriends birthday and i couldn't say one bad thing about it if I tried.

We have eaten at Clos Maggiore a couple of years ago and remember it to have been excellent for lunch so decided to repeat the exercise for a special occasion. We were half an hour late arriving due to circumstances beyond our control and whereas we were embarrassed the French manager showed no chagrin at all and in fact made... More

I've been to this restaurant twice, always with family. Simply put, it's the best dinning experience I've ever had. The food is amazing, the staff are friendly and attentive without making you feel uncomfortable (sometimes I feel self conscious with overly attentive waiters), the atmosphere and location are also perfect. A trip here is our treat when visiting the big... More

This restaurant is a great place for lunch with friends. Our group of 8 enjoyed a perfect 3 course lunch with wine included, coffee and an aperitif for £55 per head including service. We thought that this was good value given the high quality of the food and friendly service. I can strongly recommend the duck breast - it was... More
