Pre theatre, nice atmosphere, a little heavy on out of towners but thats the area. Good service. The food is not as polished as it used to be but still very good and worth a visit if you're in theatre land.

They vary but do not include shellfish, so they told me, it is the best fish pie ever in my view, the "sauce" is divine!

From recollection the fish pie contained salmon, but cannot remember exactly what was else was included, definitely a meaty white fish. What I can say, it is delicious!

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.
