Squaremeal Review of Clos Maggiore ?

Fans reach for superlatives to describe this Covent Garden institution, dubbing it "magnificent" and "consistently outstanding". Maggiore's crowning glory is its petite conservatory, complete with fairy lights, white blossoms and a cosy open fire – undoubtedly one of London's most enchanting spots. Any die-hard romantics should note tables in here can't be guaranteed, though the restaurant also has plenty of cosy nooks for an intimate tête-à-tête. Accomplished French cooking is evident in picture-perfect dishes showcasing contemporary flavours and international influences. Silky slow-cooked Scottish cod is served with a Catalan-style sauce of vermicelli, mussels and chorizo, while "superb" hand-rolled pappardelle with wild mushrooms boasts flavours that "speak for themselves". Wines score highly for "quality and originality" and the Cognac list is notable too. Staff are "exceptionally professional", but some feel they lack warmth; "active" table-turning isn't popular, although "great-value" set menus and "delicious ambience" perhaps offer compensation.

Wine List Of The Year Winner

Clos Maggiore is well known for having an immense range of wines on offer. At almost 100 pages and (at a rough guess) around 2,500 bins, it boasts an impressive selection. And yet, for all the extraordinary range of wines on offer (including jaw-dropping verticals of some of the wine world’s biggest names), the most impressive aspect of this list is the effort that has gone into making it accessible.
