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.

Joe Allen is an institution; it feels a bit like going returning home when I fine there.

The American food and atmosphere are spot on, and who could resist the authenticity of this theatregoers haven. In fact, the London outlet is better than the New York original. Go and enjoy!

Very enjoyable evening - food was nic and the service good too. We had a 'star deal' which was really good value. Restaurant very nice - busy but not overwhelming and we didn't feel at all rushed.

Wonderful venue, truly fabulous! The set menu was good, the waitress very smart but their attention to detail let them down! A little sloppy!
