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.

    As a JA regular there is nowhere else to eat! The new building has all the familiar character & atmosphere. The hot dog & butterfly chicken is heaven

    As always Joe Allen does not disappoint. This is my fifth visit but the first at their new premises. More space but still hasn’t lost that charm from the old place. Excellent service and fabulous food. Will keep going back every time in London. One of the top favs.

    We've been using Joe Allens since it opened and it never fails to be a nice experience. The new location maintains the atmosphere and the calves liver is back on the menu! We took friends who were there for the first time and they were happy.

    For years, I’ve wanted to visit the famous Joe Allen’s but never got around to it. Now I have, I wished I’d done it sooner. I loved the decor and the ambiance was perfect. That was at 3 o’clock in the afternoon! We chose the Set Menu. My starter was “Little gem, Stilton, honey mustard dressing, toasted hazelnuts,” and my lunch-partner, she had the “Soy glazed shredded duck, cucumber, spring onions, soft tortillas.” However, we didn’t know what to expect, but from the first mouthful our taste buds went wild. For the main course, I had the “Steak frites” and my partner ordered the “Salad of trout, crème fraîche & dill dressing, Cornish new potatoes.” Our meals were cooked and presented to a very high standard. And, with excellent service, this is a place I highly recommend. Even the glass of House Red was a treat. All priced very reasonably. I shall definitely be returning, shortly.

    Joe Allen is a simply super restaurant. Great decor, wonderful ambience, good pre-theatre menu & great a la Carte.

    This was my first visit since "the move". It was the same, but better. The ambience was the same, but the food was really good.
