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.

Visited at lunchtime in a group of 6. Had hoped to be seated in the conservatory but was very busy so we were seated on the edge of the main restaurant in a booth. This was most acceptable. We all ate of the set menu which included a half bottle of wine. We all enjoyed the great food and atmosphere... More

Unfortunately, when we booked this we did not realise that it had been voted the most romantic restaurant in London. We were a party of six and therefore felt at first that we could not speak as we might ruin everyone's 'romantice experience'. As the evening went on and everyone in the restaurant became a little noiseier we settled in... More

We celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary here with the taster menu and wines. The food couldn't be faulted, the staff were friendly & efficient and the area at the back of the restaurant (where we were seated) was magical. The mirrors, twinkling lights and foliage created a very special atmosphere. Thank you!

Went for an anniversary meal and ate the seasonal taster menu with wine. Quite simply, it was perfect. The venue itself it stunning, very intimate and very cosy. The food was very, very good, very well presented, tasted brilliant and the service was top class as well. Finally, the wine was excellent, very well matched to the food and served... More

We were a party of 7 at dinner on 19 August. From the moment we entered the service was great. The food was diverse and yummy and the desserts were particularly tasty. All together a really enjoyable evening!

4 stars rate is an average between the food, good but not extraordinary, and the settings. If you're lucky enough to seat in the romantic room, it's really an experience. Wonderful. We didn't sit there when we visited, but the staff was so kind to let us have the dessert in the romantic room. We really appreciated the gesture.
