Andronicas World of Coffee – Covent Garden

If you are looking for this coffee shop, then do not expect to see a sign saying Andronicas outside of it. Instead look for a neon lit Espresso Bar sign in the window. After a lot of time walking up and down Floral Street several times and getting blank responses from neighbouring shops when asked…

Joe Allen – Covent Garden

If you didn’t know that Joe Allen was along this very small quiet side street, it would not be the obvious place to look for a restaurant. It is hidden away from the all the main restaurants in Covent Garden. Joe Allen is on the lower ground floor and the red brick walls leading to…

Sagar – Covent Garden

When a friend came over from Europe in December, I got to see her briefly for an early evening catch up. But it was so short as time was a real factor. So I was happy that the next day both of us and her friend were free to do a relaxed Indian lunch in…

Mishkin’s – Covent Garden

A big thank you goes out to my friend who introduced me to Miskin’s just before the Christmas break! He suggested trying this new restaurant when we decided to have a festive catch up! It made such a refreshing change to have some different types of food! Food that when we looked at the menu,…

There’s a funky mural on the back wall towards the bar area of the restaurant. All these elements set the theme of a relaxed eatery. The restaurant is made up of…

Hazuki – Covent Garden

It’s quite easy to walk past Hazuki and not notice it, as it’s on the corner of a busy street! But, Hazuki is worthwhile noticing, as it has some of the best Japanese food! Hazuki has its dining area over two levels. The dark wood furniture contrasts with the cream decor. There are also screens…

Circus – Covent Garden

There is no major sign indicating the property of Circus. All we saw were some black doors that were open and then looking inside, we could see that there was some sort of dining area. It’s only when we went inside the building, that there was the Circus sign in lights on one of the…

Carluccios – Covent Garden

This is Carluccios flagship restaurant and it is spread over two floors. The entrance and interior reminded me of a grand home. It has high ceilings, stone floors and a big spiral staircase. We were seated on the upper level, which looked like the private dining area. There are huge windows that overlook the surrounding…
