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 & excellent service. Food was fine, but not exceptional.

  • ((((( 14 August 2018 by Mona from London

    This was my first visit to Joe Allen since its move from Exeter Street. At the time, I was just relieved that the restaurant wasn't closing down but I did wonder if it would be able to re-create the same magical atmosphere. I needn't have worried. Everything about Joe Allen is as perfect as ever, from the service to the food to the wonderful cocktails - including the non-alcoholic ones.

    Delicious food - chicken schnitzel - excellent service

  • (((** 9 August 2018 by Guy from Laleham

    Loved the location, the decor, the piano player and the child friendly service. unfortunately the food was very average. Poached eggs were cool on arrival (although very tasty). The hot dogs were on the chewy side. The lobster brioche roll didn't really taste of anything. Duck salad was tasty. Ribs were tender but not a massive portion. Chips were tasteless. Thought £280 (including 12 1/2 % service and £76 on wine) for 3 adults and 2 under 10's was just a lot more than the meal was worth.

    First time to Joe Allen’s and it won’t be the last. So atmospheric and inviting, and charming staff too. Just the right side of attentive. I loved the dickie bows. Definitely want to try more of the food. Favourite thing was the conviviality and American feel. All round good.
