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.

I and 3 others have today enjoyed an absolutely fabulous lunch whilst 1M others got wet watching the Pageant. The service, food, atmosphere and value slickly exceeded our high expectations. The prixe fixe lunch menu including 1/2 bottle of pleasant house wine afforded exceptional value for money. Blindingly fresh crab with velvety remoulade, powerful duck parfait to start were stars...

I booked this meal for my partner and I's 10th anniversary during which meal he proposed! The food was amazing but the booking process and service did mar what was nevertheless a very special evening. The restaurant made me confirm our booking at least twice before the date and phoned on the day to again check we were coming to... More

I took my fiancée here to celebrate our engagement. We were lucky enough to be seated in the fantastic "conservatory" area at the back of the restaurant. We had the taster menu with matched wines and each course was fantastic, and the wines went perfectly. The sommelier explained each wine without being intrusive, the waiting staff were friendly and informative.... More

This was a perfect restaurant treat for the end of our vacation. The food, the service, and the ambience were all top notch. The prix fixed three course menu was the way to go!

We booked a table here prior to going to the theatre and had the set menu which was roughly £19 for 3 courses and £24 including half a bottle of wine each. The restaurant doesn't look much from the outside but inside it is very nice even though our table wasn't in the nicer part which is at the top... More

Went to Clos Maggiore on Saturday 19th May 2012 for lunch on my wifes birthday. We had the 3 course set lunch menu with a bottle of wine to share all for £60. Not only was it extremely well priced for central London but the quality of service and food were excellent. We had been to the restaurant a couple... More

My wife and I ate here for the second time on our recent trip to London. We were a bit apprehensive about going back as we'd had such a good time previously and didn't want a less good experience to tarnish the memory. We really needn't have worried though as it was just as good as we remembered. Service was... More

Everything in this place from service to the food was excellent. From the moment you walk in you are made to feel so special. The staff are wonderful, their knowledge is impeccable, as is their welcoming charm. All of the seats in the restaurant are beautiful, but the terrace is exceptional. I can't believe that we have not been here... More

This is a lovely restaurant full of characters and charm, not too pretentious, very close to Covent Garden Piazza, Opera House and Leicester Square. I go there for lunch in the conservatory, with the light coming through it is very enjoyable to have a nice meal with your loved ones. The food is exquisite, not sure if they have any... More
