Everything about J Sheekey is special from the moment you walk in. I had not been for over 20 years but immediately remembered the last time from its décor (smart yet understated) and the menu. The food was very good, the service discrete but exemplary...More

OK, maybe that's a bit of hyperbole. But there is something magical about this place. They take the simplest, finest ingredients - the very best oysters from the British Isles and France - throw in some modestly elegant twists - try the smoked haddock frittata!...More

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.
