RESIZE Ave Mario 3 Credit Jérôme Galland

Home to some of London’s most loved eateries, from fine dining to grab and go bites, Covent Garden is a foodie’s paradise. With something to suit all tastes and budgets, you can discover world-class dining in London’s West End, with the likes of Frenchie and The Petersham. But if you’re looking for something worthy of making the ‘Gram, Ave Mario, Avobar, La Goccia, Abuelo and SUSHISAMBA are the places to be.

Desert more your style? Ben’s cookies boasts hot-out-the-oven cookies, while Bubblewrap is home to crazy concoctions. You can even indulge in world-famous chocolates from the likes of Godiva and Hotel Chocolat. Whether it’s a quick bite from Asma Khan’s Darjeeling Express Deli or an evening of the finest tartines from Chez Antoinette, Covent Garden has the dish for you.

We house some of the most sought after bars in the city, from the more casual Buns&Buns to perhaps the worst/best-kept secret in Covent Garden – The Savoy’s prestigious American Bar. Or if cocktail night is more your style, why not sip on signatures at SUSHISAMBA, discover Frenchie’s seasonal cocktails or get experimental with expert mixologists at Da Henrietta?

Whether you’re a cocktail connoisseur or just want to relax with a glass of wine, Covent Garden is the jewel in London’s West End crown.
