We called in for a light brunch before going to catch a train. On a cold day it was a comfortable and pleasant place to be. I had a mushroom croque and my wife had scrambled egg on toast. Both were fine. They were accompanied by a cappucino and a hot chocolate. Total cost was £17.55. On the high side... More

This is our usual per show restaurant so expected good food at good price, we were not disappointed. Staff were friendly, polite and attentive. There is a good selection and if you're early, the breakfast is also good.

On our way to Kinky Boots, we stopped in here for what would be a wonderful, French styled dinner. It is just down the street from Covent Garden. It was a nice reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the crowded streets. Even though it was very crowded with Christmastime dinners, the host gave us a choice. Go away, or... More

I booked the Café Rouge as it is in a great location for theatres nearby. We were a family party of six with children included. The children's menu offered 3 courses, decent portions and well cooked. They were given crayons and a page of various activities to occupy them. The adults opted for the fixed price menu at £12.95 per... More

This chain was a pleasant surprise. The food and service were great, the wine served at the right temperature and the staff were so friendly and helpful. All so good that we returned for a second meal. So convenient for Covent Garden.

Excellent food. It was cold outside (I live in Dubai) so I had the soup and the Moule. The service was good and they didn't rush me at all.... As I was trying to fill time it was ideal.

TBH time was of a premium, had an hour and half before the show. These guys found us a table very promptly so very grateful. Service was very good and again prompt... My only concern was the menu... Not alot took my eye... Ended up with the regular burger.. Price wise was fair...

I visited with family, booked earlier in the day and was happy with the table. The waitress and other staff were fine, although they didn't look too happy. The food was on the whole fine, children's was good and the ladies in our party were happy. We chaps on the other hand had two over done burgers. To her credit,... More

For a little oasis of calm in the bustle that is Covent Garden, look no further than the our Wellington St restaurant.. cosy and with a lovely little Parisian feel, we've got a fantastic new food and wine menu perfect for a quick bite to eat or a leisurely dinner before a show. There's something to suit everyone and you'll come for lunch and want to stay right through to dinner! We're located just a few minutes away from Covent Garden and The Strand. The ideal location for a pre-theatre meal, a break from shopping or a leisurely coffee and a spot of people watching.
