Square Meal Review of Clos Maggiore ?

Effortlessly smooth service sets the tone at ‘simply magical’ Clos Maggiore – an enduring favourite famed for its seductively intimate conservatory, where an open fire, fairy lights and fake blossoms are guaranteed to charm:‘It’s so romantic that I would say “yes” to anyone!’ sighs one fan. You’ll also be saying ‘yes, please’ to an accomplished French menu of beautifully presented dishes showcasing considerable culinary skill. Delicate lobster, scallop and prawn tortellini arrives in an intense tomato and red-pepper concasse lifted with aromatic lemongrass, while roast guinea-fowl breast is paired with intense smoky aubergine, feta cheese and a smoked-anchovy beignet, balanced by a hint of citrus in the sauce. Classic desserts such as chocolate fondant, plus a first-rate cheeseboard and an ‘extensive but unpretentious’ wine list are further draws, along with an ‘incredible-value’ prix-fixe menu. In short, ‘it’s so good that you come away hoping they won’t change a thing’.

Wine List of the Year Sommelier's Award Finalist

A very clean and spacious list, with a huge number of really, really good wines. Decent value at the higher end, the list excels with its Champagne selection, and also draws plaudits for the amount of choice around the £30–35 mark. And if you’re out to impress, the list boasts vintages spanning four centuries, as well as a line up of top, classed-growth Bordeaux. Definitely a list for genuine wine lovers.

    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...

    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 me to the most romantic restaurant in the UK AND he didn’t even book the cheaper set menu – I could have screamed with excitement!...
