Once again, my husband and I find ourselves at one of our favourite restaurants for pre theatre dinner. Atmosphere is great, staff always very friendly and helpful. Food, as always was excellent. Such an ideal place being within walking distance of so many theatres. Thank...More

Not a big fan of cooked fish in general, but the way J Sheekey's prepares fish and the taste of the food is amazing. Prices are by no means cheap, but it is phenomenal. Whether it is their oysters, cooked fish, or other seafood dishes....More

The seafood was fresh and prepared simply but elegantly. A bit noisy and damp inside but food stands out.

My partner and I ate in the Atlantic bar yesterday and had good food. We both thoroughly enjoyed our food and would certainly go back. The environment is nice and informal and food reasonable value. Service was fine, but not faultless, hence the 4 star...More

Yes it is. The J Sheekey Atlantic Bar is next door to the J Sheekey restaurant, and is more informal.

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.
