More about Joe Allen - Covent Garden

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, Joe Allen is quietly tucked away on Exeter Street just a five-minute walk away from Covent Garden underground station. 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 breakfast, 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 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 service, good steak. Unfortunately they didn't have "burgers" on the menu but apparantly if you ask for them they do a fantastic one!

Really great atmosphere - not your typical american-ish style diner. There was a great live piano player and the whole setting seemed quite intimate for a relatively large venue. Im not sure the Star Deal was value for money - but we were full afterwards and the food was pretty good. I would definitely go back.
