Really amazing fish, great staff and lovely decor. We really enjoyed our evening in J Sheekey's. I have the ceviche to start, followed by cornish fish stew, both were amazing. My friends had the grilled squid, Sole, and Sea Bream, all of which were lovely....More

It is mainly a fish restaurant, quite famous in London. Definitely worth a visit if you like fish. Fresh fish with basic cooking, allowing the taste of fish to come through. Good wine selection not too expensive either. The restaurant is difficult to find as...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.
