We booked Clos Maggiore for our 25th wedding anniversary. This was our first visit after finding the restaurant on-line and it was great. We were seated in the conservatory which was beautiful and the food was fantastic. All the staff were very helpful and attentive to our needs. We had to book very early and we have already booked for... More

One of the absolutely best meals we have had in London. Duck and lamb were cooked perfectly and wine recommendation was spot on. Great atmosphere - enjoyed every aspect of the garden room.

I booked this place as a birthday treat for my partner after coming across it by chance searching the Internet and I can honestly say I'm so glad I did. We dined here on Saturday evening and was seated in the beautiful conservatory as I had requested via email when booking, although they did email me to say they could... More

Took my girlfriend for a surprise birthday lunch and we both loved it. Posh but not pretentious. Staff all very good and friendly. Beautiful decor, especially the conservatory with the blossom trees. I made sure I booked a seat in the conservatory several months in advance, which is necessary. It's so lovely in there and she was very happy. Drinks... More

A group of us had Sunday lunch here for my bridal shower and were treated so well! As soon as you enter the restaurant it is the beginning of a beautiful sensory and gastronomic experience. The 3 course set menu (£34 per person) was phenomenal! The whole table raved about the food and service. Highly recommended if you enjoy beautiful... More

We turned up by chance on a very hot evening and received a warm welcome. Very romantic and the food was excellent. We had the veal for two which was exceptional and the chocolate dessert (also for two) was sublime. We had a nice bottle of bordeaux which was properly decanted and were well looked after throughout. Next time we... More

The little covered courtyard with flowers and fairy lights has a beautiful romantic setting. The food - I had the parpadelle with truffles, was exquisite. Moreover, the wine menus - or should I say the wine encyclopaedia, is very extensive with a resident sommelier to help you navigate your way through it - I had the Sassicia which is a... More

Me and my wife had been here about 4 years ago and we loved it. I took her to London as a surprise for her 30th at the weekend and booked a table in the conservatory for lunch. This restaurant in our eyes is literally faultless. We actually enjoyed it more than our first time. If you want a table... 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.
