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.

This was a wonderful meal in a beautiful setting, book early and request a table in the conservatory where there are flowers and lights across the ceiling. The service was impeccable and food delicious, if I had to be very picky I would say it was slightly too salty but that just be my taste. Great... read more

A very pleasant set lunch with a half bottle of wine, to work away a stressful week. Service was helpful (especially as I need to eat Gluten Free). The food was excellent and the ambience very relaxing. When in need of a meal, wether with company, or alone, I would be very happy to return.

Great evening of typically rich French food, prepared very well. One of the most beautiful interiors I've seen and service is quite good as well, if a bit too in your face. Great for any special occasion.

Visited recently and had a great night. Service, ambience, location, decor, food and wine all superb. The food was varied and fresh. Taste wise it was superb and we would love to visit again. The meal and wine was reasonably priced for the quality of the whole evening. Would recommend for a great romantic date.

Wow, this was our 3rd time eating here and at last we managed to be seated in the courtyard and it lived up to my expectations! It really is a lovely place to be seated.

Dined here for lunch yesterday. It was superb. Everything is top notch. Great service, amazing food beautifully presented in a spotlessly clean restaurant that has loads of character and is comfortable and roomy. What more do you need. If you're in London don't miss out on dining here, you won't be disappointed.
