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.

My father took my family and I here for my 21st birthday back on the 1st of June. This restaurant is honestly the best I have ever been to. I've been lucky to eat at restaurants around the world including at the Burj Al Arab in Dubai, and this tops the lot of them. The service is top notch. And... More

The restaurant is in Covent Garden and has a very particular style of garden romanticism meets a London club. The food is fairly traditional French, and the service is smooth without being overbearing, although we would prefer to pour our own wine. The menu prixe fixe for 3 courses is reasonably priced with a good selection of meat, fish and... More

We had lunch for two here, and could find no fault with it at all. The menu was extensive and not overpriced for a restaurant so near to Covent Garden. The staff were very helpful and attentive, and the service was excellent. We sat in the "conservatory" area of the restaurant, which had lots of natural light and plants. Almost... More

My partner and I spent a delicious evening enjoying the 5 course tasting menu with paired wines. Each dish was explained and matched to their Sommelier's choice. My partner also a Somm was fascinated and we were delighted by the pairings, which truly did enhance and in one instance bring to life, the different dishes. The final dish, a parfait... More

I went for dinner last Saturday evening and have to say that I was a little disappointed. The conservatory is absolutely beautiful and deserves all the nice things written abut it. I did not book the restaurant so I was surprised to find that we had booked the table for 7.30 pm and it had to be vacated by 10.00... More

We went for a meal for 2 post the ballet at the Royal Opera House. It was somewhere I had noticed and wanted to try (we live in London and eat out a lot). When we arrived it looked nice and romantic and we were sat at a good table. My main issue was the food. The baby cheese scones... More

The best place in uk for a date or a special occasion. Exquisite food. "Trop bien" the hot foie gras. The dining room is like something from a fable. I was wondering if it was possible to sleep there and see the stars with my wife. I did not want to go home. Impeccable service.

We visited for a pre theatre dinner straight from a matinee. Everything was excellent the menu was so unbelievably reasonably priced, we opted for 3 courses and half bottle of wine for less than £30 each! The food was exquisite, service attentive not at all stuffy nor rushed and overall a lovely dinner! Book you will not be disappointed.

What a wonderful restaurant. I loved it! The lobster salad was one of the nicest starters I've had in a long time. The sea bream was tasty - especially the broth. The skin could've be a bit crispier. Minor criticism though. The lamb shanks that the others in my party had looked delicious. The coffees with petit fours were really... More
