This iconic area of London packs a lot into a fairly modest space. If you’re going for dinner in Covent Garden, almost every street in the area is crammed with highly-reviewed places to eat – it doesn’t matter if you’re hungry for a bowl of ramen or an elegant multi-course menu. Of course, at the centre of it all is the main piazza, which houses a stunning indoor market of boutique shops, cafes and more informal restaurants. But if you really want a meal that will blow you (and your party) away, then this list of the the best restaurants in Covent Garden will do just that.  

There are plenty more foodie pockets in this part of London to discover. One of the most picturesque has got to be Neal’s Yard, a colourful courtyard where a handful of restaurants, cafes and wine bars converge. And, if you’re craving a fluffy stack of pancakes or planning a bottomless birthday bash, there are loads of brunch spots in Covent Garden, too. Remember to use the filters on the left to narrow down your search and find a restaurant that perfectly matches your preferences.
