I enjoyed almost of all the 6 courses tasting menu and was impressed... More

By far the most amazing Lamb I have ever eaten before in my life! I don't tend to dine in restaurants voted "the most romantic restaurant in the world" so I was worried I would be uncomfortable and stick out like a saw thumb, but the service was amazing! Actually rather funny at times. Food was exceptional couldn't recommend more!

Beautiful food in a beautiful place The decor is intimate and is a great mix of English club and Italian country house. The food is classic international and of very high standard. Great for a romantic dinner or for eating after the theatre since it is conveniently situated at walking distance from a number of theatres and serves late. A... More

Tucked away in Covent Garden, this fabulous restaurant offers a great overall dining experience. The wine list is extensive and well curated. The wines by the glass are also diverse and present the opportunity to try different combinations with food. Service is fantastic. Very friendly and yet with the right amount of formality. The food is amazing and represents excellent... More

Clos Maggiore has been on my list for a while so I was very pleased to book it up for my husband's birthday lunch on Monday. The beautiful setting, the attentive staff, the amazing wine list and not forgetting the delicious food and the finishing touch of a birthday plate all made for wonderful experience - highly recommended.

We dined her with friends who knew of this treasure in Convent Garden. Wow...... The magical setting in the conservatory, the food, the wait staff, the wine. All excellent. I will return here on my next visit, as this was a memorable dining experience. Well done to all of you.

We had originally booked somewhere else but on the day we didn't fancy the menu. After searching the internet we found this restaurant. I am so glad we changed restaurants otherwise we would not have found this gem. Amazing wines by the glass and the food was amazing for a vegetarian and a carnivore. One of the best meals I... More

We dined in the room with the flower ceiling and it was awesome. The service was great. It was a graduation dinner and they tried their best to make it special. The salmon and burrata were delicious. The cheese balls they serve were the best.

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.
