Birthday meal in this amazing restaurant. Definitely book early and ask to be seated in the conservatory, you will be surrounded by flowers. Too beautiful for words. And the food definitely exceeded expectations. Delicious!

We went for my husbands birthday and even though we did not manage to book a table in the conservatory this restaurant does not disappoint. The service, food, decor and entire experience was amazing. Make sure to leave room for the chocolate dessert!

I went to Clos Maggiore to celebrate my 1 year anniversary with my girlfriend and was treated to a fantastic experience. As soon as we entered, the greeter at the door ended her phone call immediately to see to our coats and get us seated. We were waited to immediately and were given water and appetisers. For starter, we both... More

Our recent visit to Clos Maggiore was even more rewarding than our first. The chef has continued - or even surpassed - his/her brilliant work; and this time we were seated in the Conservatory (you need to request this far in advance). It's a wonderful space for fine dining -- and fine dining is exactly what we got. Yes, the... More

Stunning restaurant, you need to ask to sit in the conservatory for the real experience. My husband and I had an unusual day out without the children and had an amazing lunch in special settings. I was thinking how lucky I was just sitting there. The food was lovely, well presented,and good size portions, the staff where lovely and the... More

I had heard a lot about here from friends so booked up for a birthday treat. It is a very traditional and beautiful restaurant. From the minute we arrived the staff were amazing, so friendly and helpful. We were helped to choose a wine from a very comprehensive list by the sommelier who matched the wine to our food choice....

Such an amazing dinner! The decor was magical, the service was impeccable and the food was divine! We had the lobster bisque, black truffle topped pappardella and the pork loin and all were delicious, flavorful and satisfying. We were dining pre-theatre but ordered a la carte. We never felt rushed, and we made the theatre with plenty of time. The... More

Beautiful romantic dinning room with fire place on the 1st floor. Very nice menu, excellent food,I particularly recommend the venison which was very good. I'll definitely keep this address in London. The only 'bemol' was the service (waiter and hostess) but overall it was very good.

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.
