The perfect place to dine after the theatre or indeed any other time! The food is consistently wonderful, service impeccable and the restaurant is perfectly located.

Excellent but pricy menu would no doubt have suited us in the normal way. We sat down and perused the menu and...……...turned to the wine list!!! 11GBP for a 125mil glass. Very average wines at GBP 40-60. Sorry, we were frightened off.

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.
