Clos Maggiore is an oasis of calm in the heart of Covent Garden. Influenced by the stylish country inns of Provence and Tuscany its unique interiors create a warmth and intimacy enjoyed by both business and private parties. The conservatory has a fully retractable glass roof creating a bright and airy dining space, particularly lovely during the Spring and Summer seasons. It is transformed at night by candles, starlight and a crackling fire during the Winter months. Head Chef Marcellin Marc cooks sublime Provençal inspired cuisine with contemporary panache. Marcellin is committed to using locally sourced seasonal ingredients to create perfectly balanced menus which were awarded three AA-rosettes since 2008. Our extensive cellar at Clos Maggiore includes over 2,000 labels and was extended earlier this year to include an additional 400 wines at a low – mid price range. We are very proud to have been awarded the “Best of Award of Excellence” consistently since 2003 by Wine Spectator.

Private Dining

The Private Dining Room at Clos Maggiore is the perfect setting for lunch and dinner parties whether for business purposes or special occasions. The room is beautifully decorated with wood panelled walls and tones of warm ochre.

Beautiful restaurant, delicious food and impeccable service, but pricy and a bit stuffy in style. Great for a fancy date but not really for dinner with friends.

Perfect for our bi-annual lunch. lovely quiet ambiance and delightful staff with just the right balance of service without being obsequious or stuffy. The food is sublime. We had the crab to start and my cod and my friend's pasta were delicious. My pear based pudding was excellent. We highly recommend and will certainly go again.

We loved the restaurant. The decor is beautiful and cosy, the staff excellent and even accomodated our children well. The food was some of the best we have had recently. A modern take on old c’assics, elegant and refuned

Nous avons eu la chance d’avoir une table sous le cerisier. Nous avons le 5 courses tasting avec wine paring. Tout simplement divin.
Le service est parfait également et l’attention pour notre anniversaire de rencontre était très agréable.
Merci encore à toute l’équipe !

Bit disappointed - you go to be in the conservatory but that was booked out. Had the tasting menu and it was a real hit and miss selection - awesome truffle pasta, rubbish burrata with citrus fruit, the vegetarian main was very dull, pumpkin soup starter fabulous. My bf who had the meat tasting menu also had either excellent or rubbish courses.

It was my boyfriend’s birthday, I wanted to surprise him by going here. This restaurant is on the list of top 10 most romantic restaurants in London, the ambiance is amazing. The staffs are nice, I was quite worried they forgot to give some kind of birthday plate, but they didn’t! The food is outstanding! We got the 3 course menu, and each one of them is awesome! Too bad we did not get the Conservatory area, but other than that, it was an amazing experience! Thank you!

The food is great, my friend and I enjoyed out lunch. Just one annoying thing is that they asked us three time ' are you finishing the starter?', when we still eating but just talking with each other. Hope it can improved. but in total, it a great place to go.

it was the second time, i came to clos maggiore. First time, last year, romantic dinner with my fiancé, ground floor in a beautiful room with plants and cheminee. Wonderfull.

I booked another table few days ago, same thing, for a romantic dinner with my fiance. But i was very disappointed when the waiter took us to the first floor. Small room, with a lot of people. Very loud.
And same high prices for dishes.
Too bad for the most romantic restaurant of the world...

We had the loviest lunch date experience at the Clos Maggiore.

As we are both French, I decided to book a table here to celebrate our 3 years anniversary with my boyfriend and we were totally amazed by the romantic atmosphere, the kindness of the staff and the excellence of the gastronomy.
We had the chance to get a table in the conservatory, where we could enjoy this special place and moment.
The starters, the main dishes, the bread and even the butter were pure delicacy, a perfect mix between French traditional food and creativity.
Last but not the least, when I ordered some tea at the end of the lunch, we received an unexpected attention from the restaurant who brought us homemade chocolates as a gift for our anniversary.

The beef dish was not good. Too dry and not fresh enough. Duck dish was very special and tasty.
Desert is average.

Upstairs seats are not as fancy as downstairs. Better book earlier to get the downstairs seat, otherwise it’s not worth this price, the food is too average.

This restaurant has an amazing atmosphere and is one of the most instagrammable restaurants I’ve been to. However, the vegetarian taster menu contained too much truffle which overpowered all the other flavours and really wasn’t needed.

We spent a long time choosing this place for our 10th anniversary and I’m glad we did... the staff were attentive and friendly and the food was exceptional.

We were on the first floor, a room with about 5/6 small tables and a roaring fireplace. Was cosy and felt very personal.

Thanks to everyone at Clos Maggiore for a wonderful evening. You will see us again.

It was a well decorated for christmas and food was quite good and delicious. We were happy to find a table at the second floor as the space between the table was well organized and you are not feeling pressed. The waiters were very gentle and helpfull while choosing food and wine. We will probably visit this place again

This was our second visit to Clos Maggiore and both times it didn’t disappoint. This occasion we celebrated my girlfriends birthday and were seated upstairs where the dining room was elegantly decorated. The ambience was perfect with only 6 or so tables it was nice and intimate. The food was amazing and beautifully presented, we wanted to try all the dishes so we opted for both the set menus which was reasonably portioned, priced and of exceptional quality. The waiters were very polite and welcoming and the service was great. The added birthday chocolates and candle was also a nice touch. I will definitely be back again, hopefully I can find myself lucky to get a spot in the conservatory (third times the charm!)
