Top quality fish but at a price. Excellent oysters followed by mixed grilled fish which was substantial to say the least - only served for 2 people sharing & consisting of a variety of 5 different varieties. I could not manage a pudding after that....More

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!

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.
