Lunch on a Sunday 3 people 1 bottle of wine 2 bottles of fizzy water and 2 courses each. £250. They charged £2 cover each for bread, that is tight. Food OK. Had dinner at Cafe Murano last night 3 people 3 courses 1 wine 2 water and £165. Food infinitely better and a nicer sit.

Good for pre theatre dinner. The service was welcoming but a little confused - wrong drinks to the table, wrong cutlery, food not brought together. When the food did come, the Cornish Stew was tasty and filling, the seared Tuna was a little too pink for some but tasty too. Gluten free options were supported. I would visit again before... More

This place had great service, excellent oysters and even better champagne! Could it be better? Perfect after a show for a late light meal in the bar! Next time I'll bring my husband: )

Had a fun dinner here in the Atlantic Seafood Bar (outside). Great food, very good wine.. Definitely a happening place! Very busy; you need a reservation. We really enjoyed it.

J Sheekey's turned out to be great food, a wonderful gathering place for the "after-fives" (everyone in the restaurant seemed to know each other), excellent service, and comfortable atmosphere. The OYSTERS ARE AMAZING and the menu offers great choices. We sat outside--quite enjoyable on a summer evening. Loved the buzz of the street--people passing by on the way to the... More

Only 3 stars but a bit better really 6 - 7 out of 10! (saying "good" isn't an option on TA!) The bar food we got was a bit of a curate's egg. Grilled prawns over-cooked and spinach very wet but other things such as the crab on ice were excellent (although after spending time digging into the beast I... More

Went to the Atlantic bar for dinner and sat outside. A heater was turned on above us so the temperature was perfect. Enjoyed a G&T and the Sheekey pie. It is loaded with 4 kinds of fish: smoked haddock, halibut, salmon and cod and topped with potatoes. It is always delicious. Service was excellent.

One of the best, if not THE BEST, places to go in town for fish. I had the best sardines for starters ever, and that include from home in Cornwall. We did splash out a bit and have turbot, what a good decision. It was superb, simply grilled, brimming with taste and served with bearnaise sauce. An excellent rose wine... More

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.
