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.

Have visited Joe Allen's over many years and it never disappoints. Unique atmosphere, fine food and excellent service. Would like more choice of red wines by the glass.

Having been coming for years - since Harvey Wallbanger days and still love it.
My guest was on her first visit and can't wait for a return.

We had a very good lunch and perfect for a stroll to the theatre afterwards.

I'm a regular at Joe Allen's, Covent Garden. The atmosphere is always good but not noisy so you can hear yourself speak and the tables are not on top of each other. Staff are always excellent. If they need your table back at a certain time they tell you and you don't feel like you're being rushed. Food is great and caters for every need at a decent price.

First time at the "new" Joe Allen . We used to go to the old one often . The new one has the same great atmosphere, slightly smaller and less steps to get to ! Charming and friendly staff , and an excellent menu . Great for after the theatre .
