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.

“Still going strong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

It is a couple of years since we last visited Sheekeys and as we had planned our trip long enough in advance to get a booking (try phoning if online in showing as full) we couldn't resist. Crab starter was delicious and Dover sole and turbot cooked to perfection. No room left for dessert. Staff were attentive as ever, all in all a great meal.

“Absolute perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

2nd visit now to j sheekey's. It's an absolute pleasure to eat here. We took friends that hadn't been before, they have pledged to return. The service is impeccable and the food is first class. Will definitely return again, just need to wait for a special occasion in order to do it! Can not recommend this restaurant highly enough.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Came here with my boyfriend and his parents on a rainy day. Staff were polite and friendly. I had the butternut squash risotto for my main and the salted caramel popcorn ice cream for dessert. The risotto was creamy and the sage and pumpkin seeds complimented the rice. I really enjoyed the dessert. It was a three scoop ice cream dessert and I couldn't finish it though I wish I could, I shared it with the boyfriend. The proportions were good enough that you were satisfied and not stuffed.

“Stunning food...perfect for a proper treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

I was lucky enough to be taken here by my boyfriend for my birthday meal, and what a treat. I have scallops to start, and then sole for main I think! It was just delicious! Such high quality food, and although we didn't have the oysters they looked incredible. Not cheap...definitely one for special occasions, but excellent food!
