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.

It is always difficult when you go somewhere with high expectations but when they are exceeded you know you will want to go back. As it goes other dinners were rebooking as they left. It is always hard to get a table and I can see why. Beautiful restaurant even though the conservatory is supposed to be the place to be the ambiance service and food made this a wonderful night

The food was outstanding and as is well-known the ambience is special. My beef is with 'reception'. There is nothing worse than approaching reception to find someone with their back to the customers talking loudly on the phone.

Booked for a table, expecting the ambience to be as nice as photo shown on website. However on arrival we were seated upstairs. Apparently if we would like to sit under the flower deco we have to “specifically ask for it” and the waiting list for those tables are dated back in 2016. Very disappointed and there’s no apology/empathy shown by staffs

Very poor service, with average food. The decor in the conservatory is beautiful. I have absolutely no idea why there would be a waiting list to eat here. I would 110% NOT RECOMMEND this restaurant for any occasion.

I managed to book a very very last minute table and I was not disappointed. The staff were incredible and extremely helpful, I would never call myself a wine connoisseur but after asking, the staff member took 5 minutes out of his time to teach my the quick basics of wine tasting.

Thank you very much for making the wife’s birthday so special.

Really disappointed in the dinning experience, especially after waiting several months for a booking. My partner and I booked a table in the conservatory (which is beautiful) for our anniversary, of which no mention to our special occasion was given by the staff. The friendless, knowledge, and attentiveness of the staff was very poor. The food was very good, especially the rabbit starter, but the mains were not very memorable. Excellent wine list. I feel like the restaurant is overly pretentious without reason and is very over hyped. Would not return. There are much better French restaurant in the London area.

I was dissapointed with the meal at this restaurant. I expected better! My starter felt like it was done yesterday, cold and not interesting... my main was even worse. I ordered turbot, and somehow I either didnt see or it wasnt clear to me that it came with pasta. Stuffed pasta parcels and fish dont go together at all. I also ordered chips to go with this and waiter didnt even advise me that since there is pasta i may want to order a different side.... i had to eat fish and chips, and leave pasta.
desert was just ok too.

Atmosphere is lovely, but for that price (£100 pp) you can find some amazing michelin restaurants in London instead.
