Maxwell’s Covent Garden

About Maxwell’s Covent Garden

Lively and cheerful restaurant with a winning combination of good, affordable food served in a buzzy environment. This American style eatery is popular with young and old alike, great for pre or post theatre dining or just to sit al fresco and watch the street artists show their skills in the heart of Covent Garden. Ideal for kids, adults of all ages and something on the menu for everyone. Not necessarily the place for a romantic night encounter - although some long standing plights have been trothed here! - but great for an informal lunch or evening out. What’s cooking? Popular American style menu - Buffalo wings, club sandwich, fajitas, chilli, ribs, steak and the ubiquitous burger. Desserts include apple pie, chocolate brownies and sticky toffee pudding.
