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.

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

I went with family to celebrate a birthday. The place came highly recommended and it didn't disappoint. Not only does the place look fantastic, the food is great too. We had a variety of starters which were all very good - I recommend the rabbit in particular. For mains we had either duck or lamb, both of which were really... More

Our friends in London, who are regular diners here, booked us a table. From the moment we walked in the door we were treated like royalty. My husband and I have never had such a wonderful dining experience before. The restaurant is so beautiful, the staff are wonderful, the food exquisite. To dine like this in Sydney would cost a...

My husband and I have visited Clos Maggiore on a number of occasions over the past few years. It always exceeds expectations in terms of quality, service and attention to detail. My only reservation about writing this review will be that it may make it even more difficult to book a table, but they deserve the recognition. If you want... More

My Wife and I had dinner at Clos Maggiore during June 2014. I was told the dress was business casual so I spent my day in dockers and leather shoes and carried around a blazer. Our initial impressions of the restaurant were good but that changed when two men sat across from us , one in shorts and a tank-top.... More

Top tip - make sure when you book you request to be seated in the conservatory - the setting is wonderful under the flowers and lights. Also, the bar area is very small (fits 6 people) so don't arrive too early for a pre dinner drink ! Have been to Clos Maggiore a few times, it never fails to impress.... More

Our first visit to this restaurant. The conservatory is the very best part and you can see why it has the title of most romantic restaurant. There are only 7 tables in the conservatory part and it is very intimate. The food was beautifully cooked and presented. Service was excellent. As a suggestion it may be worthwhile for the restaurant... More

My wife and I selected this restaurant on the basis of the online menus---and were not disappointed. We had the taster menu and since my wife does not eat fish, the attentive staff were happy to substitute the fish courses for items taken from the vegetarian menu. I also had the classic wine flight and my wife had separate glasses... More

The most romantic restaurant in London? Probably it is, but ask to be seated in the main room -under the flowers-. Went there on a weekday evening for dinner; luckily for us it was a last minute decision after I was told there was a cancellation on the booking that I took immediately, as a 2-month in advance booking is...
