I would describe J Sheekey as busy, lively and perhaps a little cramped. Service was very good; just when you are thinking you'd been forgotten a waiter popped out of nowhere to serve, drinks or wonderful seafood. Lively place, but not for those wanting a...More

I’ve been coming here for years, and never a bad meal. Possibly the best fish pie in London and the service is always first rate. An absolute must for anyone that wants an extravagantly fabulous evening with top notch food. You won’t regret it.

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.
