Filled with gold, elegant drapes and theatre memorabilia, Sarastro is an iconic restaurant for lovers of opera and London's West End. Housed in a Grade-II listed building, the menu spans the Mediterranean, and on selected evenings there are live music events ranging from Motown to a string quartet.

From Italian classics to exotic Turkish delicacies, the Sarastro menu captures the very best of the Mediterranean. To start, there are mezze options that are perfect to share, and mini lamb shish that are wonderfully juicy. Fresh seafood includes Dover sole with new potatoes and asparagus, and the veal chop with garlic confit and port jus is a hugely popular choice. There are sumptuous vegetarian options also featured, and gourmet salads for those wanting a lighter meal.

There are all kinds of sweet treats to finish with at Sarastro in Covent Garden. A signature crème brûlée comes infused with Turkish raki, and the wine list includes fine vintages from the old and new worlds.

An iconic restaurant in London that is perfect for theatre goers, Sarastro sits moments from famed theatres and entertainment attractions of the area. Covent Garden Tube Station is just a 5-minute walk away.

    I love to bring people to Sarastro whenever I want to have a special time with people. The atmosphere is amazing, the decor absolutely gorgeous, the staff go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome and ensure that everyone has a good time! The food is absolutely lovely - beautifully presented and so well cooked. When the entertainment is on that just adds the finishing touch. All in all a superb place - and very reasonably priced too! Great location too - just a stone's throw from Covent Garden. I can't recommend it too highly.

    We had the pre theatre menu - it was fantastic value. The restaurant itself is unbelievable - the photos do not do it justice. The staff are really friendly and welcoming.... just wish we lived closer to be able to go again.

    Lovely meal, very attentive staff and rather unusual toilets!
