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.

    i have been eating at Jo's for years and would not have done so had I not enjoyed the food and atmosphere. I was sad when they moved from Exeter St. fbut the new restaurant is very cosy and friendly. I was a little disappointed with my set meal. Starter and desert were delicious but none of the three choices of mains appealed to me. I finally chose the chicken which turned out to be crisply fried with strange tasting coleslaw; I ate it but can't say it was to my taste. We did look at the main menu and was disappointed with that also. My feeing is that the food was better in the old days before restaurant changed hands.
