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.

Have visited twice now in the past month and have to say it is not what it used to be at all, I'm afraid. The setting is still beautiful in the conservatory, although they seem to find every excuse under the sun to NOT seat you there (very tiresome when you have booked months in advance) but it's the food...

I took my boyfriend to this restaurant for his birthday and we both absolutely loved it. We arrived a little late after some trouble on the Tube and I was expecting to be turned back the moment I walked through the door. Thankfully the lady on the front desk immediately asked us if we had any jackets to leave in... More

My boyfriend and I chose Clos Maggiore for its pre-theatre menu and romantic atmosphere, and we were not disappointed. The restaurant itself is small, but we were lucky to be sat in the beautiful conservatory area. The pre-theatre menu featured 2 courses for about £28 each, which I felt was quite reasonable considering we were in central London on a... More

The first time at this restaurant and we were taken care of from the beginning. The service was very good and the food was delicious. We had the seasonal tasting menu where you get 5 courses and all of them combined with the wine that was chosen was topnotch. We'll definitely go here again when we're back in London.

We have eaten here on a number of occasions, lunchtime & evening but are still amazed at the calming effect it has on you especially in the conservatory area. No it isn't cheap but the service is faultless and unhurried; the food always a delight. I have an allergy to chocolate and the staff adjust desserts to suit. On this... More

My son and his girlfriend recommend this restaurant to us saying it was the best good they had ever eaten and I can now say it was some of the best food I have ever eaten too. We booked a early dinner from the pre theatre menu. It consisted of two courses and a half bottle of house wine. It... More

We ate here with friends recently! Great dinner! Super service. Three of us had the Guinea fowl and it was very good. The portions were a nice size -- not too much, but just enough! My wife had a vegetarian dish -- pasta with mushrooms. She loved it. I had a side of mashed potatoes that was heavenly!

Closs Magiore Our third time and again amazing experience. It's bit waiting time, but anyway, if you are not in a hurry book a table in conservatory, it worths it! With this flowery decoration around and nice dim lights you will get lovely romantic atmosphere, which is just underlined by kind and thoughtful service and art on the plate -... More

This was my first time at Clos Maggiore. It was a lat minute booking as post-theatre meal. The staff were welcoming , The tables are arranged in such a way that you feel like you are far far away from the bustling streets of Soho.
