Clos Maggiore: London’s most romantic restaurant in Covent Garden

Prepare to be enchanted. A romantic candle lit dinner for two under the stars and blossoms is on the cards. Voted as the world’s and London’s most romantic restaurant, with a cherry blossom adorned conservatory. Award winning cuisine, in the perfect settings. 

Clos Maggiore in Covent Garden is the perfect place for when good impressions matter. Important dates, anniversaries, & special occasions. Great for a pre- or post-theatre experience too with outstanding an French & Tuscan inspired menu.

This is Narnia land for sure. You will leave with a smile!

Clos Maggiore’s airy flower filled conservatory has a magical intimate ambience, with candles, fairy lights, & a roaring log fire in winter. The restaurant’s interior design is elegant and classic, inspired by the stylish country inns of Tuscany & Provence.

I loved this charming restaurant, with a great selection of Provencal cuisine with light flavours inspired by Tuscany. We tried the A la Carte menu with a 3 course meal. The combinations were creative, fresh & delicious.

‘Chef Marcellin Marc’s love of Provencal cuisine is recreated with individual style and flair. Marcellin is committed to sourcing local and seasonal products throughout the year to create perfectly balanced menus which have consistently been recognised and awarded with AA-rosette awards’.

Starter: Fresh Burrata From Puglia & Marinated Heritage Beetroot Pink Grapefruit & Smoked Catalan Almonds, Extra Virgin Olive Oil. My favourite!

A Special Starter: Confit & Chargrilled Sicilian Aubergine Stuffed with Sweet Peppers & Corsican Ricotta Crispy Seeded Flat Bread, Red Onion & Ginger Marmalade 

Oven Baked Provençal Vegetable Bayaldi Stuffed Brioche, Grilled Fennel & Courgette, Pine Nut & Basil Pesto

Divine: Fresh Burrata From Puglia & Marinated Heritage Beetroot Pink Grapefruit & Smoked Catalan Almonds, Extra Virgin Olive Oil

I especially loved the salads, with the unexpected pairings of grapefruit, with pine nuts, & olive oil. Such gorgeous inspired flavours, I promised myself I would try to be a bit more experimental with salad recipes at home!

The desserts were also so delicious, & mini works of art beautifully arranged. That chocolate dessert was spectacular & soooo good. Recommend! You can request for an alcohol free version.

Service was impeccable, the polite and attentive staff ensured that we had the best experience possible.

There is a waiting list for the flower filled conservatory, so be sure to book in advance and mention that you want a table in the conservatory. It is voted the world’s most romantic restaurant after all. Be sure to set aside a few hours if you want the tasting menu, it takes approximately 3 hrs.

Verdict: This is definitely London’s most romantic restaurant. Delicious food, stunning interior, cosy ambience, impeccable service and knowledgeable staff. Recommend!
