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.

Cibo eccellente e molto ben presentato. Il servizio a tratti presenta qualche sbavatura ma nel complesso molto gentili. Atmosfera speciale e molto romantica soprattutto nella sala del camino. Da provare!

The food was good. I booked this restaurant because of the romantic restaurant setting. Unfortunately I was not seated in the conservatory so I did not have the romantic atmosphere, instead I was seated at the back of a bar. It would be useful to know at the time of booking that there is limited space in the conservatory then I could have booked another date to avoid being disappointed.

This is a so famous restaurant in London with great reputation by “romantic ambience” and “beautiful”! However, It look like a trick if you table on the second floor rather than the main hall. Everything is bland and boring. I cannot enjoy the beautiful environment of the restaurant which is the most or only . But you need pay for the same expensive bill. Terrible memory!

The staff is okay, I like the environment but the food is not what I espected. The banana dessert was brilliant and the mushrooms. Apart from this, I don’t think the rib eye and the fish deserves the price, the taste is not so good. The beef is over cooked. It lost its original taste, I recommend next time don’t cook for so long... overall, the environment is very romantic and I’m lucky to have the good view table although the quality of the good should improve as well as the services. (I have to ask for folk when I trying to eat the beef) Plus the decoration of the plates can be more delicate and elegant, I don’t feel like I’m having dinner in a French restaurant...

Anniversary lunch
We booked a few months ago, as you should as they book out quite quick.
We had a nice relaxed lunch, the food was very delicious and very well priced. We had the 3 course lunch menu and thought that was excellent!
They really looked after us and made us feel very special.
We also requested a table in the conservatory which at first was not possible but had a table there when we arrived so was super happy 😊
Highly recommended and will return as soon as possible.
Thank you.

This booking was made over 3 months ago in hope that my husband and I would celebrate our 9 year anniversary in the “conservatory” of the restaurant. Upon arrival, we were greeted with “sorry no conservatory table available for another hour” come and sit right outside it. “We have guests who booked in december, we need to seat them first” To be honest if you can’t guarantee it, don’t promise it! This I wasn’t told! If only you could see these awful tables that looked like your local cafe rouge with 5 star prices. The service was so quick you could have mistaken the place for a take away joint. The starters were awful, with fancy names to con you into thinking you’re eating your monies worth. The main meal was very nice, fantastic truffle pasta but still arrived too quickly and still had a hunch about not sitting in the conservatory. We did not opt for dessert. Didn’t think there was a need when the area where we were sitting was so depressing. There were waiters everywhere, some dropping cutlery on the floor. We are big fans of fine dining and have been to many restaurants around the world especially London but this has got to be the worst one yet. The manager didn’t care to ask how our dinner was considering she couldn’t accommodate us where we want d and falsely suggested she may have a table in the conservatory later in the evening so we could move. A complete farce, waste of money and 1 hours journey. I would hope the manager has something to say about this.

My salad with buratta cheese was too cold. When I mentioned this to the waiter his attitude was that he could not care less.

The meal was rushed and we had a terrible table in the aisle way.

Ha d a wonderful time. Food was wonderful and the service top notch. Celebrated our anniversary there unfortunately we could not eat downstairs where you feel you are in a garden, very romantic. Perhaps next time. Make sure when you make a reservation you are told where you will be sitting.

The pretty area is just the conservatory. Wanted to take a picture at the most romantic restaurant but the waiter seems impatient while taking pictures, and the shots were overexposed. Food was ok, service was acceptable but we felt rushed. Celebrated my girlfriend and my first anniversary there but after the dessert, we were kind rushed out of the restaurant. A few of the Waiters were nice but some were arrogant. If you’re not placed at the conservatory, clos maggoire should not be voted as the most romantic restaurant at all.

What an amazing restaurant! Very romantic setting great for anniversaries (which is what I went for), impressive date, or even popping the question. The staff seemed to be mind readers, knowing the exactly when we needed them, and exactly when we didn't.

If you think you are only getting great ambiance, you're wrong. The food was amazing! They seem to have a good wine list, but we opted for the cocktails, which were perfectly balanced.

I can't wait to go again.

The food was delicious but we had requested a seat in the “conservatory”, which is the only thing the restaurant is famous for. There was no communication as to whether we’d get that seating until we got there and was told those seats are reserved 6 months in total- this information would have been useful before hand. We were seated at an underwhelming table and would have actually booked somewhere else if we’d know that conservatory seats were so unavailable. Btw, the conservatory is the open garden area the restaurant is famous for.

I have been here a few times and I am never disappointed. We were not in the garden but could see it from where we were sitting. It was beautiful. All the staff were attentive and friendly especially the sommelier. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing and every course was delicious. This restaurant is perfect for special occasions. I highly recommend this place.

We had a delightful pre-theatre dinner at Clos Maggiore when we were recently in London. Do book way in advance to get a seat in the conservatory. The rest of the dining room is just as lovely. Everything about our meal was fabulous. The service is attentive, even during the busy hours, and the food delicious. Thank you to everyone at the restaurant for making our meal so special.

Overall I was extremely pleased with the experience, particularly as I had booked several months in advance for my partners birthday and although we initially did not have a table in the beautiful conservatory, we were moved to this area due to booking so far in advance which was much appreciated.

Quality of the food was very good and would highly recommend, in addition to friendly and efficient service from the staff.

The one and only thing that did let the experience down was that I had contacted the restaurant in advance a few days beforehand requesting that a birthday message would be written on my partners dessert. Unfortunately although this was confirmed by the restaurant via email, this didn’t happen and when I realised that this would not happen, it was a little late to inform the staff of the oversight.

Would certainly return and aside from the slight lack of detail at the end of the meal, a wonderful experience that we will cherish.
