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.

It was my boyfriend’s birthday and it was our first time dining here. We were lucky enough to have gotten a table in the conservatory. I definitely suggest asking for a table in there. It’s stunning and the atmosphere in there is lovely! The food was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We will definitely be going again in the future.

Lovely sunny day in London highlighted by delicious lunch! The service was impeccable yet friendly as well not stuffy. I noted all staff had smiles throughout the afternoon! Not to mention the delicious food and of course the ambience. No worries if not in the conservatory- we enjoyed immensely just adjacent.

Amazing romantic setting in their conservatory. Staff were attentive and friendly. Could not recommend this place enough, just enough to book far in advance if you want to sit in their conservatory, be sure to request it specifically.

Sunday lunch for our anniversary - what a treat! Conservatory was beautiful with a flower canopy and the open fire set the place apart. Great food, but didn’t taste the wine. Had options for vegan which weren’t bad either.

Faultless. Firstly the setting was even nicer than I'd imagined, warmer and more intimate. It was our anniversary and we were given a corner table in the conservatory. Pre-theatre menu was excellent, as was the attentive and expert service. Can't wait to return.

Food was good but not amazing, they’re not as good as they think they are - this applies to the pricing as well as the quality of the food. A little obnoxious and staff were condescending. If you’re not seated in the conservatory you could be in any restaurant. This was for a special occasion and it just wasn’t very special. Apart from the berry stinger cocktail whose taste and appearance WAS really special. Disappointing overall.

Overall great food, service and ambience. There was not one ne item we were unhappy with but found overall a little expensive especially around sides and wine.

Loved the truffle soup, pigeon salad and my wife love the sauce that went with her sea bream.

Could not fault service at all which was friendly and efficient from both a service and food delivery and timing.

So great our friends have already rebooked for a couple of months time

Amazing food! We went with the tasting in order to get a little of everything and we weren't disappointed.

The drinks were also very tasty. 2 of us went with the wine pairings and the pairings were excellent.

Location was perfect not far from Trafalgar Square

Delightful surroundings make for a wonderfully romantic special occasion. We had to book very far in advance but were lucky enough to be sat in the conservatory. Generally the service was great - never a dry glass. However, some of the finer points were missed - when the cutlery was changed for starters we weren’t asked who was having soup, someone just jumped in and chose the incorrect person, so then we had to swap it all round again. Also we were there for a birthday, and I was emailed a couple of days before asking if I’d like a small plate of chocolates and a candle - of course, a lovely idea. However this never appeared, despite several other tables receiving such treatment. It was a nice afternoon, and the food is delicious, but I wouldn’t rush back.

Went for our anniversary meal. We weren’t seated in the conservatory (pretty room with the flowers on the ceiling) which the restaurant gave us a heads up about but we were seated just around the corner on a cosy table. Restaurant is small and intimate and the service is brilliant. Huge range of wines and a very helpful sommelier.
I am pescatarian so they adapted a couple of fish and meat dishes for me and they were delicious.

Everything we ate was delicious with very rich flavours and the exotic cheesecake was accompanied by a delicious mango sorbet.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant. I was worried that it might be too stuffy for my liking but it was actually very relaxed whilst being extremely professional and attentive.

Went to Maggiore’s for Sunday lunch to mark a family celebration. We had a such a lovely time. Delicious set meal along with a few unexpected extras (amuse Bouche & petit fours) thrown in for good measure. The staff were friendly, attentive and provided an excellent service. Maggiore’s is a top notch restaurant and it deserves all the praise. Couldn’t have asked for more. Thank-you.

After stepping inside we wished we could dine in the observatory room but I guess space there is very limited.

2nd visit with my partner. Beautiful small restaurant with two floors.

receptionists were lovely. Service staff were very friendly and accomodating.

Food was lovely, we had the 5course tasting menu, which was for the most part, delicious and filling. However, we did find some dishes to be a little on the salty side. For me it was the sauce that came with the sea trout and also the short ribs.

Of course if you are not happy with your dish I'm pretty sure the service staff will try to rectify it.

The sommelier who served us was great! Was able to advise us on which wine would go well with our tasting menu. Had great character and knowledge.

Another point is that we wanted to enjoy our drinks for a short while before we ordered but we were interrupted 3 times, which made us feel a need to rush.

All in all, we will certainly return! This is a great relaxed, warm environment with lovely food and service staff. Perfect for couples and special occasions.
