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 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.

We ate at Clos Maggiorre before heading to the Royal Opera House for a show. As the show was a treat we decided to eat somewhere nearby but wanted somewhere very nice too - It did not disappoint. The setting in the conservatory is beautiful and we felt immediately chilled and relaxed with the lovely room and warm open fire.... More

The conservatory is absolutely beautiful and this is definitely the most romantic restaurant I have been to in London. The food was so delicious and I'm already craving my dishes! They also have a brilliant wine selection. I wouldn't hesitate before recommending it as one of the nicest restaurants in London.

Enjoyed a delightful Sunday lunch at this charming French restaurant in Covent Garden. We had reserved a table in the Conservatory which is most attractive and cosy. The lunch menu including half a bottle of wine pp is extremely good value and the food was outstanding. Will find an excuse to go back to this lovley restaurant very soon.

I booked Clos Maggiore for my girlfriend's birthday, at 21:30 on a Sunday evening - and I couldn't have made a better choice. At first I was concerned that the time of the booking would leave the atmosphere feeling a bit quiet, being late in the evening. But in fact it was very peaceful, and the restaurant remained at full... More

My then boyfriend took me to Clos to celebrate our very first anniversary together - needless to say he is now my husband. We say in the courtyard, in the corner - romantic, peaceful, cosy, just amazing! Loved it!

We go to this restaurant regularly and the staff are nothing but attentive and helpful. They are very knowledgeable and it is clear that they take great pride in their work. The whole restaurant is beautiful but the conservatory is the best seat in the house. It is sophisticated and elegant without being fussy and over the top. I have... More
