Fodor's Review

The A-list sneaks into this classy 1896 side-alley seafood haven, a discreet alternative to the more overtly celeb-central Scott's, 34, or Chiltern Firehouse. Umbilically linked with the surrounding Theatreland district, J Sheekey is one of Londoners' all-time favorite West End haunts. Beautifully orchestrated by longtime maître'd John Andrews, Sheekey charms with warm wood paneling, vintage showbiz black-and-white portraits, a warren of alcoves, and twinkly lava-rock bar tops. Opt for snappingly fresh Atlantic prawns, pickled Arctic herrings, scallop, shrimp, and salmon burgers, or famous Sheekey fish pie. Better still, sip Gaston Chiquet Champagne and slide down half a dozen Jersey rock oysters at the old mirrored oyster bar for the ultimate in true romance. Alternatively, enjoy the £26.50 weekend three-course set-lunch deals.
