Pre-theatre restaurants around Covent Garden
15th December 2021 at 10:32RhysHfP Staff
I’m off to see Nabucco at the ROH next week. Does anyone have any good pre-theatre dinner recommendations?
I’ve been to Sushi Samba before – their pre-theatre menu is very good but I find their a la carte menu a bit overpriced.

Pre-Covid we used to go to the Petersham restaurant and were never disappointed.15th December 2021 at 12:21grahamrb
Dishoom is good if you like Indian food.
Not dinner, but Nomad is just opposite the ROH and great for cocktails.15th December 2021 at 12:45memesweeper
San Carlo Cicchetti is good15th December 2021 at 13:54cinereus
Margot and Temper used to be good. Or, if you’re willing to walk a bit: Humble Chicken, The Seafood Bar, Mr Ji…15th December 2021 at 16:52Richie
I enjoy Balthazar.15th December 2021 at 17:15Grant
If you can manage a short walk then 10 Greek Street is the perfect pre theatre spot in my view.15th December 2021 at 19:40The Savage Squirrel
Balthazar is opposite and we enjoyed it even in its overhyped way.
Christopher’s Grill was pretty good too if you’re feeling Americanophilic and carniverous.15th December 2021 at 21:47SteveJ

You can’t really plan with Dishoom as their queue is always so long you can’t guarantee you’ll be out in time, and they don’t let you reserve at dinner (you can at lunch).15th December 2021 at 21:50Richie

Thanks, will make a note.16th December 2021 at 00:12Alan TJ
My current favourite is http://www.bancone.co.uk
We have been going there for a few years and always get excellent Michelin standard (without the fuss) Italian food.

Do you have to book well in advance on perfomance days?16th December 2021 at 09:45Economist_Nearby
I don’t know if you have to, because I’ve booked in advance for all post-COVID bookings anyway.16th December 2021 at 09:50Richie

Whilst further to walk (it is by Piccadilly Circus) Brasserie Zedel – in the old Atlantic Bar & Grill site for the oldies on here – remains the winner of my ‘best value for money food traded off for luxury of surroundings’ award.
