A hidden gem surrounded by the shops and theatres of Covent Garden, Joe Allen is a highly regarded restaurant serving a selection of American and European specialities.

Ideally located for a pre-theatre meal or for dinner after the show, Joe Allen is quietly tucked away on Exeter Street just a five-minute walk away from Covent Garden underground station. Nearby theatres include The Lyceum, Novello Theatre and Duchess Theatre, as well as the Fortune Theatre and Theatre Royal. Joe Allen is also a great destination for a special brunch, lunch or dinner when shopping or staying in one of the hotels around Covent Garden and on the Strand.

Opened in 1977 as a stylish London dining venue for theatre-goers, artists, journalists and performers alike, Joe Allen has a relaxed, casual feel throughout. Today the healthy cuisine and friendly atmosphere attract an eclectic clientele of the West End's young and trendy crowd, romantic couples and families.

    Terrific experience as usual although our New York dining companion did raise his eyebrow at the "thimbleful" of Martini.

    We had a very good time indeed. Friendly, but not pushy waiters. Good food at a decent price where the service charge goes to the staff and not the management! And decor that made me want yo stay for an additional hour just to read the walls.

    Nice restaurant - reasonably priced for the location. Staff a little impatient to take the order - we felt we were rushed through the menu. Food was a little over salted. Service was very average and we thought 12.5% service charge a little steep for the service we received.

    Delicious house burger. Tuna carpaccio and guacamole fabulous too.
