J Sheekey is elegant and cosy and the service is next to none. But having had the lobster Thermidor three times now, I feel I can vouch for it being consistently excellent. Two halves full of plump flesh, topped with a delicious but subtle sauce....More

Yes it is. The J Sheekey Atlantic Bar is next door to the J Sheekey restaurant, and is more informal.

In the heart of Covent Garden, J Sheekey is a fish and seafood restaurant offering the finest fish, oysters, shellfish and other fruits de mer. Discreetly tucked away on St Martin's Court between Charing Cross Road and St Martin's Lane, J Sheekey is a stone's throw from many of the West End's theatres, the cinemas of Leicester Square and vibrant quarters of Covent Garden and Soho. The Royal Opera House and Coliseum, Palace Theatre, Donmar Warehouse, Wyndham's, Duke of York and Noel Coward Theatres are close by, making the restaurant perfect for pre and post theatre dining. All fish is responsibly caught from sustainable sources.
