Square Meal Review of Clos Maggiore ?

Regularly pronounced London’s most romantic restaurant, Clos Maggiore seduces readers with its mix of “memorable food”, “superb wine list”, and “charming service and ambience”. Twinkly fairy lights, fake apple blossom and an open fire make a “magical” setting in the conservatory – though reservations aren’t guaranteed here. Intricate, contemporary French dishes are delivered with assured skill: witness signatures such as braised shoulder of rabbit matched with sweet-and-sour black radish and punchy mustard mousseline; perfectly roasted Irish sea trout in a beautifully balanced sauce of clams and braised vegetables; and melting ibérico pork loin and confit pork cheek teamed with potato and almond croquette and wickedly rich Stroganoff sauce. Inspired desserts, first-rate cheese and top-notch Cognacs offer further temptation. Great-value set menus mean you don’t always have to find a special occasion to visit either. “Simply perfect!” is a typical response, making it a perennial candidate for the BMW Square Meal Restaurant of the Year.

Wine List Of The Year Winner

A serial finalist throughout the years, Clos Maggiore has an immense range of wines. 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), what judges most liked about this list was the effort that had gone into making it accessible.

of top, classed-growth Bordeaux. Definitely a list for genuine wine lovers.

    Livelifelovecake :: Romance at Clos Maggiore

    A year ago my boyfriend Sam won me over with a box of my favourite Charbonnel et Walker truffles and to celebrate, he took me out for the evening. The venue of our dinner was a surprise and nothing was given away which could lead me to right or wrongly guess. I told my mum how I hoped I would be taken to Clos Maggiore in Covent Garden which has been named the most romantic restaurant in the UK. Mum told me not to be disappointed if we went elsewhere, I mean how often does a man actually listen to you and your rants about that dress in the window or that fancy restaurant? It turns out mine does! That evening Sam took...

    Wrap Your Lips Around This :: Clos Maggiore

    It’s no secret that the most romantic restaurant in London is regarded as Clos Maggiore. A single room in this establishment is apparently potent enough to win this and other racier accolades – reason enough to steal a peep. This reputation is made flesh in a room twined with an eternity of white flowers, whose blossoms are conceived in its darkened corners, branching up towards its apex, and finally merging under a glass ceiling. Twinkling fairy lights interweave with the thick foliage and mirrors are cleverly used to deepen the space, transforming it into the set of an enchanted forest...
