Clos Maggiore

Went there for my birthday with my girlfriend - we are at themoment looking and eating in many restaurants in london looking for the best. I went there because of the reviews here and word of mouth - Our experience there was somewhat disappointed.

The atmosphere is excellent and the only thing taht i can recommend here, very quiet and romantic the setting is brilliant.

The service not impressed at all when the end bill is over £100 for 2! we were rushed for our apperitif, and our starters arrived half was through my drink, not impressed! but the removed the palte and they were happy with it, but should not have said so. sevrice was then ok, the somemlier helped as his knowledge of the thousands of wines they have was very good!

The food itself, choice of menu looks great, we had crab to start with that was delicious! our mains chicken and beef. The chicken seemed under cooked and chewy, a shame. My beef filet was not very tender which was odd.

Price, if the food and service was as expected it would have been a great diner, but it was not so the food is very expensive for the quality.

Atmosphere: 9

Reading more and more, i think it seems the restaurant lost its touch with popularity!
