I don't like giving bad reviews, but it cannot be helped. My partner had a coffee which he compared to multi save office coffee. My wine, I took a sip and was to put it mildly was not impressed. But that could of been due to my choice. Both drinks were sent back. We then ordered the salmon and the... More

Discovered this café a while ago; and have visited many times. It is really not the standard tourist restaurant; the food is fresh and well-presented, the wine is good quality. More than anything I like the busy, cheerful atmosphere and friendly service. Somewhere to go with friends and a real contrast from the 'chain' restaurants that populate the West End.... More

Went for an early dinner after the theatre and were welcomed like old friends. Timely but not rushed service, excellent food and ambience.

Booked a table for valentine's dinner and the evening was great. The food was nice, the service was brilliant, a bit of a squeeze to seat down but everything else was good.

We went there for a dinner. Service was really nice, attentive staff nice people, clean place, fast service. Food... hmm.. too bland. Nothing worthy of a restaurant. Wine is also average. But nice pre- theatre dinner

A friend and I had a pre-theatre supper here and my lasting impression is that we were practically seated on top of the next table. I was seated immediately upon arrival and service was very efficient which is just what you want when you have a show to get to. I expect decades of being sandwiched between two theatres has...

We booked a table at lunchtime, and were seated promptly when we arrived early. Staff were excellent. Menu was great and we had wild boar sausages, linguine, burghers and chicken. Overwhelming response was 'yummy'. We found the theatre performance was at 19:00 rather than 19:30 and our order was pulled forward. We'll call again next time we're here. A very... More

I use St Martins Court as a cut through every week but I've never visited Koha and I can see why - London on a Saturday night just before Christmas is crowded enough without being expected to play Sardines once inside the restaurant..The serving staff are fine - sweet, even. The wine list is okay too. But the food is... More

After a rather hectic week at work and in need of a little treat and some peace, Koha was brilliant. In a place where everyone seemed to be a couple or group, a singular diner was looked after and not made to feel alone. The staff are attentive and great. Smiley professional staff always on the look out for someone... More

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighbourhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
