Maxwell’s Covent Garden offers gourmet grill cuisine, and is just 2 minutes’ walk from the iconic Royal Opera House. As well as the bistro-style interior, patrons can dine al fresco in warmer weather.

Housed within a grand building, Maxwell’s restaurant is set over 2 spacious floors in the fashionable Covent Garden area. Choices span from the typical meat grills and steaks, to succulent fish and crisp salads. Resounding favourites include Maxwell’s own recipe hamburger, and creamy Portobello mushroom linguine. For younger diners, Maxwell’s kids menu offers tasty treats.

Alongside a well-balanced international wine list, Maxwell’s London takes pride in its extensive range of exciting cocktails. Signature mixes include the refreshing solero, and the tasty Baileys banana colada. For something sweet, desserts stay true to North American classics, with fluffy New York cheesecake and loaded, deep crust apple pie.

Less than 1 minute’s walk from Covent Garden Tube Station, Maxwell’s offers a vibrant dining experience, with an authentic and welcoming charm.

    The meal was ok but our first waiter was extremely abrupt when asking him about the 2 for 1 deal. Our second waiter was lovely and he made a huge effort with my daughter as it was her birthday her pudding was lovely nice touch thanks.

    Awful !

  • ((((* 5 January 2017 by Chloe Purslow from London

    Had the perfect lunch at maxwells for my partners birthday, the team of staff was very helpful and polite. Our order, drinks and food was all done in a reasonable time we didn't feel we had been left unnoticed at all during our dinner. The only dispointing thing was that some of our order didn't turn up after asking the waitress she went to sort it but it still never made it tour table when she said that they still hadn't cook it, we had finished out main meal so it was to late. The only disappointing thing about the day but defiantly would go back again. Lovely staff and perfectly filling food!
