We had the tasting dinner here a few weeks ago as the start of our 2 week holiday. Both the setting and meal were lovely. Staff are really attentive.

We were in London for our 20th wedding anniversary with our teenage kids. We wanted to celebrate at a special place and Clos Maggiore did not disappoint. We found the restaurant on Tripadvisor(naturally!) and reached out to make a reservation 2 months in advance. We couldn't get the time we wanted in the most beautiful part of the restaurant: the...

I booked this restaurant 4 months in advance to be seated in the conservatory to propose to my girlfriend. We attended on the 20th April 2017 and from the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. The food was the best we have ever eaten, the service was impeccable and the setting was amazing (the rest of the restaurant... More

Came here, the two of us, for a romantic dinner. Again, Clos Maggiore has not disappointed. I wanted to sit in the atrium, but we dined upstairs which I never have had done before. While it wasn't near the ambiance of the beautiful atrium, it was a nice and very unique room. We had the chicken and duck, I had... More

It was an absolute pleasure dining at Clos Maggiore. My husband and I were lucky to be seated in the beautifully decorated conservatory; a truly enchanting setting. We could not fault our meal. The lamb with chickpea cassoulet was cooked to perfection and the truffle mashed potatoes melted in the mouth. We were very impressed with the service which was... More

I went there with my wife for her birthday. The restaurant is located very close to Covent Garden easily achievable by tube. We drove there and I had a great experience, just parked the car couple of meters from the restaurant, as after a certain time, the pedestrian area is open and you can drive and park in there. Unfortunately... More

My husband and I had a brief 24 hour layover in London on our way to Ireland.

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.
