    My kids really like Parsons and it was nice to see the same staff there and some favourites still on the menu. Starters and the croquettes were the highlight especially the scallops sliders with squid rings that my daughter had great fun with. Turbot was deliciously crispy skinned with a luxurious butter sauce

    Food was delicious. The potted shrimp croquettes were great and the fish pie had a beautifully cooked egg in the centre.

    Dinner with a friend from New York . Attentive service and great food . Understandably limited space , but with the distance between tables being short and general noise, it was very difficult to hear my friends voice

    Small restaurant in Covent Garden area that is very convenient for theatre or opera goers. Small selection that seems to assure that really fresh seafood is available that is expertly prepared.

    Loved dining at Parsons - would absolutely visit again! We had some delicious oysters and the skate wing, which was very decadent. The bread basket is also a must (the Guinness bread!!). Fantastic wine list.

    Parsons is a lovely place. The food and wine is delicious, if pricey, and the staff can’t do enough for you. The only problem is space. It’s tiny and feels squashed. Although the upside to this is that you get to chat to your fellow diners and ask if they’d recommend their food choices should you feel so inclined. 😊

    Perfect for post-opera supper -- no one else there! But they took the trouble to cook our sea trout and mussels expressly for us, and wonderfully done

    It was more difficult than I expected to find a seafood restaurant in London. By that I mean one that really concentrates on fresh, simply prepared fish and shellfish. Bingo. Charming spot, in jam packed Covent Garden. Friendly and relaxed and wonderful fish.

    Smoked cod’s roe starter was creamy and delicious, and the marinated anchovies nice. We shared a piece of grilled turbot, excellent, so too the shared fish pie. A side order of broccoli had what I felt was an unnecessary amount of a sour lemony dressing. A glass each of white wine worked well, especially the Cretan one which we preferred to an Italian. We shall have to return to sample the apple tarte fine, as we were too full, and come earlier in the evening before the specials have sold out. Very enjoyable, though quite cramped and noisy.

    Had a stunning meal at this bijou fish restaurant. Staff were friendly and helpful with wine recommendations and the food was so lovely. The potted shrimp croquettes were so full of lip smacking flavour, we wanted to order more as soon as we’d devoured the first three! The fish pie is also a stunner. Highly recommended.
