we had a pre-theatre meal at Joe Allen. Greeted warmly by the lovely Deborah as we walked in, familiar staff, some familiar dishes on the menus, but quite a few new options as well. Great fun, not expensive.. Excellent, and the place was buzzing at 6pm. A London institution.

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.

    Wonderful, as always.
    Although, a very limited drinks selection if you don't want alcohol or sugar!

    Quiet for a Saturday lunchtime. The food was abssolutely fine - from the Set Menu - and our party all felt that it was excellent value. I would certainly go again pre- or post-theatre.

  • ((((( 18 September 2018 by Mike from London

    Really cool atmosphere, there was a pianist in the corner playing music as we ate, the staff were really friendly and helpful, and the food really tasty (the deserts especially). Our only slight disappointment was that we found the portion sizes a little bit on the small side, but overall we had a really good time there and would go again.

    Nice atmosphere, food was good.
    Booking the resturant was easy, we done it through bookatable.
    Service was good and waiters and waitresses were very polite.

    Joe Allen’s is one of my favourite restaurants and one of the few independents left in Covent Garden. Great service and lovely food. I had the lamb chop, which was beautifully cooked.

    We were too full for desert!
