After years of thinking I knew the London dining scene I had never heard of Clos Maggiore, but was drawn to it for a post theatre dinner by its two Square Meal stars. I was not disappointed. The decor was fabulous, warm and inviting, a labyrinth of cosy nooks and secluded well spaced tables. It looks a lot better in reality than in photographs.
Service was excellent throughout and the staff equal any seen in a Michelin star establishment. They really could not have tried harder or been nicer to me and my guests throughout the meal.
In keeping with the restaurant name, the menu has a French and Italian theme running through it. Pricing is very reasonable at £8 for starter and sub £20 for most mains. I had a delightful terrine of quail, foie gras and ham hock, followed by a perfectly cooked monkfish on butter beans with tomato.
Overall – This place is undoubtedly one of the most romantic places in London and the staff and food are verging on Michelin standards but at very reasonable prices. This may well become a firm favourite of mine.
