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, 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.

    I LOVE JOE ALLEN AND, AS EVER, THE FOOD WAS GOOD BUT THE SERVICE WAS POOR. WE HAD TO TRY TO GET THE WAITER'S ATTENTION TO TAKE THE ORDER FOR DRINKS, THEN FOR STARTERS & MAINS, THEN TO REQUEST MENU FOR DESSERT/COFFEE, THEN TO ORDER COFFEE, THEN TO ASK FOR THE BILL AND THEN TO PAY THE BILL - IT WAS HARD WORK! I THINK THE WAITER MAY HAVE BEEN IN TRAINING BUT HE GAVE THE IMPRESSION OF BEING FED UP AND A BIT IMPATIENT AT TIMES. BUT FOR THE FACT WE HAD WAITED A WHILE FOR THE BILL AND THEN TO PAY IT, WE MIGHT HAVE QUERIED PAYING THE SERVICE BILL BUT WE HAD TRAINS TO CATCH AND DECIDED TO LEAVE IT. THE RESTAURANT WAS BUSY WHEN WE ARRIVED AT 6.15 PM BUT BECAME LESS SO DURING THE EVENING. WE LEFT AT 9 PM. ONE OTHER COMMENT WAS THAT OUR MAIN COURSE WAS SERVED ON COLD PLATES. IT WON'T PUT ME OFF COMING AGAIN BUT IT WASN'T A GREAT EXPERIENCE THIS TIME.

    We visited Joe Allen Covent Garden on Wednesday 14th November. I haven’t stopped recommending it to friends. The staff were great, welcoming and efficient. We had the set three courses and found it delicious, hake was gorgeous. The decor and theatre posters were fascinating and the atmosphere atmosphere was buzzing. Loved it and so did my friend. Will go again. F
