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.

Been eating at CM on & off for 10 years now - food is always good and their set price menu continues to be good value. Lovely quiet setting in the middle of town. A hidden gem. Service is always charming too.

Booked this place one week before my anniversary so unfortunately could not be seated in the conservatory. However, was not dissapointed! From entering the restaurant to leaving the restaurant the service was amazing! The staff were super friendly, and the food and ambience was amazing. The dessert was probably one of the best desserts I’ve tasted before and the restaurant even surprised us with a lovely happy anniversary plate. Unfortunately the restaurant had a sudden powercut where the lights all went out, but they did bring out candles which did add to that romantic ambience! Will defo be returning and book in advance to be seated in the conservatory next time!

Clos Maggiore is a fine dining experience. It is a romantic, classy
place with great food and service. All of the entrees, especially the
Angus Beef Rib and the Scottish Cod, were outstanding. The service
is always attentive and courteous. This is the best place in Covent Garden.

Went here for our anniversary. We were not disappointed. As vegetarians we were so happy to see more than one choice on the menu. Plus they have a vegetarian tasting menu! The food was exceptional and well presented. The staff were hospitable and service was excellent. Wanted to see the conservatory but fully booked for our date. I would definately come back!

Well, plenty of reviews for this place. I love the food. We had the salmon and crab starter, followed by Pigeon and COD dishes and shared banana cake desert. Great service. We didn’t get the conservatory space which is beautiful but I actually preferred our seating on the second floor. It was so much more airier. The ground floor seemed more claustrophobic and really packed.

Spent our first wedding anniversary here and the foot was excellent and excellent value for money. The staff were friendly and they surprised us with after meal bits with happy anniversary written in chocolate on the plate in beautiful handwriting. I highly recommend Clos Maggiore for both food quality and value for money.

The world's most romantic restaurant- make a visit and you may see why! Had tried to book in for several years, but always missed out- that's how in demand they are for their conservatory seating! And even after trying for several years I was only able to get a restaurant booking on this occasion (thought better to take it than leave it)- seating in the conservatory would definitely have been nicer, but the food was superb. Decent portion sizes, and nice environment, you will not be disappointed

One of our family's favourite restaurants. The food is always very good. The staff are friendly and helpful. There are three areas - the main conservatory is lovely and always worth trying to get, but the downstairs and upstairs areas are also very good. The wine list is like a novel - there are many very pricey wines but also a handful of much cheaper options and you're never pushed into spending more than you want.

My kids like this for romantic dinners with their partners and this time it was my wife's birthday, and they made us a nice "happy birthday" plate at the end. But I've also used it for business lunches where the place works just as well.

Thoroughly recommended.

Honestly, I don't think this restaurant is worth it. We booked far in advance but were seated upstairs where it's very plain and boring. The server kept rushing us to order, ended up giving us the wrong table's order, and seemed very uninterested in checking in to see how our meal was going.

I specified on the reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary but they didn't do anything special.

When we went downstairs after the meal and wanted to see the beautiful conservatory, the servers seemed very reluctant to show it to us even though it was half empty!

The food was decent, service was mediocre at best, and the atmosphere is only nice if you get the conservatory. I honestly wouldn't recommend this restaurant to my friends.

Four of us went for Sunday lunch for my sister’s 50th. We had a lovely table in the lovely conservatory. The food was delicious and the staff excellent. We had the weekend menu which we thought very good value. They even brought my sister a ‘happy birthday plate’ with tiny desserts on...not sure how they knew...none of us had told them...

A very beautiful restaurant, me and my girl friend had a fantastic experience and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We never managed to get into the conservatory but that was my fault for not booking it early. Other than that, the atmosphere was lovely and the staff were extremely friendly and fast to serve you. The food was fantastic, a romantic scene and definitely one of my favourite high end restaurants in London. I will definitely return in the future for other occasions or just for a nice afternoon lunch. Thank you Clos Magguire for the superb experience.

My husband and I came for my birthday dinner. We had previously booked friends in for their anniversary and they loved it. We too really enjoyed our evening. The food was first rate modern French. The waiters were friendly and knowledgeable. Would recommend to anyone looking for a restaurant for a special occasion.
