Canela was the first choice of Portuguese restaurants in the Covent Garden area. It was well placed for a meeting place. The restaurant was above basic, the staff very very charming and helpful. The choice of starters was good except for the Tinned Sardines. The...More

Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude
of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or
simply to be among the multitude of people who pass
through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking
up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around
Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the
opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters
here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated
