Clos Maggiore | Romantic Covent Garden Restaurant

Last Updated: 10th September 2019

An oasis of calm amid the hustle and bustle of Covent Garden.

A peaceful French retreat in the centre of London.

A restaurant that plays host to more marriage proposals in a week than the Eiffel Tower does in a month…

And unsurprisingly so.

The blossom-filled conservatory, complete with retractable roof for an al fresco lunch or a little summer stargazing, is an undeniably impressive sight. Come winter the blossoms remain, but the roof returns and guests toast themselves beside a roaring log fire as Clos Maggiore is transformed into an intimate snug, dotted with candles and serving delicious Provençal and Basque food.

Bow-tied waiters will float over to you, delivering pan-roasted wild South coast sea bass with lightly spiced crab croquette, grilled green asparagus and lobster bisque. A zesty salad combining seasonal green leaves, garden herbs, black truffle vinaigrette and grated fresh truffle. The oven roasted rib of limousin veal. To share. And all followed by a tempting dessert selection, including a plate of caramelised Valrhona chocolate, burnt honey ice cream and Armagnac jelly rightly described as a ‘Chocolate Sensation’.

Their wine list – which is considered a “fundamental part” of your experience at Clos Maggiore – spans 100 pages, 18 countries and four centuries, with some very, very impressive vintages on offer. And you can easily have a snifter from one of their more expensive bottles, as they serve a selection of their rarest by the glass.

You’ll enjoy it…

And unsurprisingly so.


NOTE: Clos Maggiore is open daily for lunch (12-2.30pm) and dinner (5-11pm/10pm Sun). If you’d like to be in the “blossom” room / conservatory, make sure to stipulate this when reserving your table – which you can do right HERE.
