We were given a voucher for this fabulous restaurant from our daughters for our 40th Wedding Anniversary. They chose it because it is the most romantic restaurant in London! How true we found this to be. Attentive staff, ready to have a chat and a laugh with us, the dining room was beautiful and the whole evening was more than... More

We arrived for a nice meal before a show. Nice location near the Duchess theater and very appealing atmosphere. Our service was excellent and the main dish choices were great. We made the reservation months ago and everything went smoothly. reasonable prices especially for London.

Went to Clos Maggiore with a few members from my Meetup group for lunch and had a good time. The table allocated to my original booking of 7 was an U-shaped booth type, and in my humble opinion, I found it a tad too cosy for 7. Luckily, one diner did not turn up, so we did have a little... More

I have visited here ten or so times. This is a fantastic dining room. Book early and ask for the conservatory area for a really romantic meal. The 3 course set menu with pre-selected wine is superb value. We have also eaten from the main menu and it was also fantastic. Really top stuff.

I visited clos maggiore last night as a birthday treat my boyfriend had booked us into the conservatory 9months ago. I thought the food was absolutely outstanding however the first waiter who took our food order was very rude and made me and my boyfriend feel uncomfortable. It did taint my experience as for some reason he did not make... More

what can you say about the worlds most romantic restaurant. well i went with family and my daughter and the experience was great. the setting is almost fairy tale esque, the service professional and the wine list exhaustive. a perfect place to while away a lunch or dinner whether your inclination is romantic or not.

Having already checked out the rather high prices on the a la carte menu (which is the only one available in the evenings) online, I was expecting to come away feeling I had probably paid over the odds for the West End location and 'romantic' ambiance. The gaslights by the front door smacked a little of a 'tourist trap' as... More

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.
