Location and contact

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.

I went here with some business colleagues. They all had seafood and I had ribeye steak. Everyone was very well pleased with their meals. The staff was very friendly and courteous. I highly recommend.

This restaurant never fails to deliver. The menu is varied with fish the speciality of the house. Try the razor clams with beans and sausage and melt in the mouth skate wing with black butter. Extensive wine list and highly professional staff.

It's been years since we had last been and if anything, our experience was even better than I remember from before. I'll start with the only negative I have, it's a bit compact in places - our table seemed a bit tucked away and there...More

This is still an excellent fish restaurant. It is elegant with competent charming staff. The food is superb. The wine list is impressive. We have visited J Sheekeys before and it is always consistent in quality. Well worth a visit..
