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 food was tasty but the waiters kept making mistakes - we ordered sparkling water and they brought still water twice! I dropped my fork and had to ask twice for a replacement .

    Great restaurant - our table was waiting when we arrive and the staff were welcoming and very friendly. We had a large circular table just inside the doors which was perfect as there was a Perspex screen so no drafts. The food was amazing - loved the atmosphere although it was a little noisy with it being happy hour but that was fine as with kids that is preferable to being a deadly silent. Would def recommend and will be returning when we are next in London

    We enjoyed our meal - very good value as we used the pre-theatre menu. All courses were good - tasty squid starter, tasty mains of chicken and ribs, The banana sundae and ice cream were also good. Happy hour cocktails were also good
