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.

Classy West End fish restaurant

Excellent service - large menu with great choice for the fish and non-fish eater. Great buzz to the dining room and well timed and classy service from quality staff. Not cheap but worth every penny.

I went to the Oyster Bar for dinner and sat at the bar. I ate delicious seafood however the desert was out of this world - Papua Chocolate Bar with pistachio crunch! The service was friendly and professional. I would highly recommend!

I love everything about it, except that it isn't the old Manzies, which I miss terribly. This is where we go now instead. Lovely, modern clean feel, great location, yet very traditional, excellent service. Menu is all you could want. The Dover Sole is wonderful and very hard to obtain for Americans.

I cannot fault this place. All food was consistently delicious, from starters all the way through to desserts. The seafood tasted so fresh and was really well prepared. We came here to celebrate a 65th Birthday and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole meal. This restaurant has a great feel/ambience and the service was absolutely perfect, very attentive but not intrusive.... More

Ate here on a business meal and was seriously impressed with the friendly, quick service and fresh tasty seafood. Nice buzzy atmosphere. Worth a try but it is expensive..!

Everything here is delicious so if you can stretch to the cost, definitely make a point of eating here at least once. I was last here for dinner on 20th June and my only issue was with the chips - slightly pale and not particularly special. No idea if they're home made but they were really average. Have the parmesan-fried... More

I usually get the Dover Sole but tried a curry this time and it was still one of the best. There isn't much room here so best to book well in advance. I have tried only the fish dishes but these are perfect.
