Maxwell'sOccupying an enviable location in the heart of Covent Garden just up from the piazza this popular restaurant is colourful, vibrant and full of energy. It has a really fresh feel to it and is ideally located for evening jaunts to the theatre.

This restaurant opened in 1972. Back then it was almost impossible to find a decent burger or grill in London. These days, posh burgers are all over the capital. Maxwell’s is definitely part of the gourmet burger trend currently sweeping the nation as it rejuvenates and regenerates to keep up with an ever improving city.

Once famed for its delicious grill based dishes, Maxwell’s now offers a raft of appetising alternatives that have done very well. For those watching the waistlines the huge salads are wonderful, in particular the goat’s cheese option. They also offer prime-cut steaks, fresh dish fishes, heaps of vegetarian options and have added a thoroughly reworked, remarkably healthy children’s menu to the list.

For Covent Garden frequenters, much of Maxwell’s charm lies in its classic cocktail bar. Headed up by a nice serving of bartenders who are particularly fluent in mixology, their yummy cocktails have a deserved reputation. If you aren’t so partial to a fruit concoction, they have an extensive world wine list including champagnes and a raft of premium beers.
