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.

I just love this place.

Try and get a table in the courtyard. The pre & post theatre menus are a very good deal and a wonderful way to start / end your night of entertainment.

The staff is great. Disabled access is poor - no accessible loos.

I have never had a less than marvelous time at this fab place. Just try it if you are in the area.

We booked for lunch following a recommendation from a friend. From the moment we arrived we were looked after by attentive and friendly staff. We were taken to our table which was in the conservatory and was just incredibly laid out and decorated. its a perfect setting for a romantic lunch. An wine list was incredibly extensive and very well priced. Food wise we both had Iberico pork which was cooked perfectly and tased amazing. all throughout the service was superb. Really highly recommend this place and can not wait to go back.

I was completely blown away by Clos Maggiore- an outstanding restaurant. The staff are attentive and professional, the wine superb and the food was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend the slow cooked beef and the turbot!

The decor is beautiful, we booked back in November so it was quite a wait but well worth it.

We were celebrating our engagement so they gave us some lovely dessert on the house!

Clos Maggiore somehow manages to be cozy, casual, special and incurably romantic all at the same time. The staff is attentive, but never overbearing, and the food is delicious.
Note: the tasting menu (veggie option also available) is only available until 10. Get there in time because it’s worth it.
Note 2: don’t skip dessert. Worth it, again!

I have now been to this restaurant twice on two special occasions and I must say it will probably always be a favourite of mine. This is such a special restaurant, the staff are so accommodating and friendly, and so highly trained. The restaurant itself its beautiful, clean and extremely romantic - the conservatory is definitely worth the wait for a table it is stunningly beautiful with all the flowers. The food is amazing!!! Every dish, side, desert and drink I have had there has been lovely, they even done a special plate to celebrate an anniversary which was a lovely touch! The truffle Mash is out of this world and a personal favourite of mine. Yes this restaurant can be expensive - but not extremely so - and also totally worth every penny - that is why I feel it is one for an occasion and not just an every day meal!
