Neighborhood: Covent Garden
Description: 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.

“Old school service and dependable quality”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Second meal at Sheekys - marvelous service, not fussy or stuffy but with great attention to detail.
Fantastic menu of fresh, mouth watering produce. Razor clams to start with - amazing - and delicious scallop and prawn burger with corgette frites - no room for pud, especially after probably one more bottle of wine that was called for! Not one for the faint hearted wallet - this is a special occasion venue, however superbly cooked food, outstanding old time England atmosphere, great, attentive service justifies the expense.

“Excellent seafood”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We ate fresh oysters to start. Beautiful! Very reasonably priced. £15 for 6. For mains I had the whole crab. It was beautiful and I couldn't even finish it! Very sweet and meaty!
My friends ate the half lobster and also really enjoyed theirs. £20 each for the mains. Very good vaue we thought, considering the quality. Will definitely be going back!

“Old school and worth a trip”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Visited for a mid week business lunch. The restaurant was full and buzzing. The scallop and shrimp burger was fantastic and if you have a dessert, the chocolate bombe was great. Recommended.

“Outstanding food. Outstanding service!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

I ate here with my Dad before going to a show. From the moment we arrived we were treated like VIP's. The service is outstanding. The food is also of a very high standard. I hardly ever give 5 star ratings so that should indicate the standard. There is a meat menu for those who don't eat fish but no vegetarian options.

Make sure you book in advance as this is a very popular place to eat. In an excellent location and toilets were immaculate. I will be back!!
