Sheekey's is an excellent seafood restaurant very close to Leicester Square tube station. The food is really good and the staff are especially kind and helpful. It is possible to eat inside or outside.

Was the excellent dish of the day. Apple crumble with ice cream polished off an excellent meal that started with a bubbling glass of champagne - refreshing change from restaurants that serve from a previously opened bottle where the champagne has gone flat. So happy...More

i'd go smart casual, that's fine. Although high end, it's not a stuffy place.

In the heart of Covent Garden, J Sheekey is a fish and seafood restaurant offering the finest fish, oysters, shellfish and other fruits de mer. Discreetly tucked away on St Martin's Court between Charing Cross Road and St Martin's Lane, J Sheekey is a stone's throw from many of the West End's theatres, the cinemas of Leicester Square and vibrant quarters of Covent Garden and Soho. The Royal Opera House and Coliseum, Palace Theatre, Donmar Warehouse, Wyndham's, Duke of York and Noel Coward Theatres are close by, making the restaurant perfect for pre and post theatre dining. All fish is responsibly caught from sustainable sources.
