The staff were excellent, food was great, well cooked and just enough. The cost was reasonable for London. Very busy so you should book to make sure of a table.

J Sheekey remains a most reliable seafood restaurant in the West End perfectly situated for pre- and post-theatre but also for lunch. Only criticism is the lack of change on the menu.

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.
