Restaurant description

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.

    Great atmosphere and friendly ambience. The service was also very swift so ideal for a pre-show lunch. The only criticism would be it was a little too loud with many large groups and a piano player.

    As a visitor to Joe Allen’s since the very beginning I can say that the standard is as high as ever. The very friendly service and tasty food allows for a wonderful time. There’s a buzz about the place that’s very rarely replicated.

    We had a fantastic evening. The restaurant was buzzing and although I could only get a 18:45 table we were not rushed and were still there at 23:30! Food and service was wonderful and we could not have had a better time
