Tuttons is arguably one of the most famous and long standing restaurants in Covent Garden, situated on the east side of the historic piazza, overlooking the hustle and bustle of the markets.

Offering a classically English menu focusing on seasonal dishes from Great British suppliers, we offer traditional meals which showcase the variety and quality of the U.K’s food, from breakfast through to the evening a la carte menu.

Tuttons also offers a fantastic place to relax with a coffee or just enjoy a quick bar snack and cocktail before heading out to enjoy all that Covent Garden has to offer, and if you’re planning a party or more formal occasion, our private vaults, created from the old cellars offer a romantic and imaginative area to host in.

    Lovely staff, food good but could have been better. The salt and pepper squid was very chewy and pieces too large, the soup was bland , no seasoning, it would have been nice to be offered bread free . The scallops were also a bit bland and a bit of pancetta would have helped.

    The staff were charming, welcoming and attentive. The risotto was like soup. The brownie taste and texture was all wrong - as if it had not been baked. I would not return due to the food being variable. My cousin had a chicken dish which she thought was very nice. I am vegetarian so had limited options.

    Awful Experience Returned to Turin’s for the first time since 2019 . We sat down with guests only to be told the ‘gas was off ‘ in the kitchen and the menu was ‘limited ‘ clearly so limited they forgot to put the sauce on the prawn cocktail and substituted shoe leather for sirloin . Should have walked out but try getting a walk in table in Covent at 13:30 What a joke

    We booked our table a few weeks in advance. Table we were given was by the doors with people brushing past touching our table . We were also next to booking computer. We asked for a different table and were told it was this or nothing. We sat there for a few minutes and realised it was going to be an unpleasant costly dining experience. So left before ordering. I had to put a star for poor against food on this in order to leave a review. However in reality I cannot make a judgement on the food as we never had anything to eat or drink.

    We booked a pre theatre sitting at 5.45pm, even at this early hour almost everything we wanted to order off the menu was unavailable. Very disappointing. Also the burger was dry and the pasta potion was very small, almost a starter , with a hefty price tag. However our server was very apologetic and tried to help us with what was available.

    I have been to Tuttons a dozen times over the years but yesterday was likely the last. The fishcake I normally order was unavailable (not sure why at lunch on a Thursday they couldn’t supply this) so I ordered the beetroot main course salad instead. What arrived were 4-5 pieces of beetroot which was the size of a starter salad and hardly any of the tarragon dressing or any sight of a candied walnuts or whatever they said would accompany this £16.95 salad. I mean food shrinkage is a thing but this was ridiculous. We spoke to the manager who had to go away to check if that was correct eg not a mistake for a salad and promptly came back to say it was correct. My friend (who had ordered the same thing) and I both ordered something else and they only came back with one dish so we had to wait a further 10 min to get the missing replacement. The others at our table had to eat without us. The manager didn’t comp us anything after having messed up the replacement and never came back to apologise. Really very disappointed and will go elsewhere to eat as there are far better choices for the money in covent garden. (I ate at Baltazhar this week it was excellent).

    Very disappointing. After a friendly greeting for a 9.30 booking, service rapidly deteriorated as did the food: starters ok, mains really poor. When my plate was cleared, over half uneaten, the only question was whether the plate could be cleared. After decades of coming here, this was the last time.

    The food here was lovely. Everything was cooked to perfection and was very tasty. The dessert I had was one of the best things I've ever tasted. Our waiter was exceptionally nice and friendly, which is often uncommon in London (in comparison with the north of the country), he made jokes, gave us advice and enquired about why we were in London. And the atmosphere was great too. This was my second time here and I would definitely return.

    Lovely family ‘after show’ dinner with our 16 & 5 year old granddaughters. Welcomed with a smile, sat outside watching the world go by & served promptly….. food selection was good & the quality of the food was great. The perfect way to end a thoroughly enjoyable trip to the theatre. Will definitely return & happy to recommend!!

    Visited Tuttons many times. I’d booked for a post theatre meal. My favourite mussels were on the menu and they did not disappoint. It was very noisy initially but also vibrant and obviously the place to be! The food was delicious and my friends enjoyed their cocktails. Our waiter was attentive without hovering over us which is an art in itself. Will definitely book again.

    My friend and I went for Brunch pre matinee. My friend had just had some bad news and was upset. The staff were amazing, they discreetly delivered tissues to her and then left us , her, to gather herself before asking if we were ready to order. I cannot thank them enough for being so empathetic and understanding. When the food arrived it was delicious, smoked salmon and poached eggs, perfectly cooked and runny ,on brown with no butter as requested and eggs Benedict. I hadn't been to Tuttons for many years and was concerned about it being the right venue. They didn't disappoint !

    Slow service considering we gave them notice of our theatre trip (and were eating pre-theatre deal); after 45mins we had only had our starters! The waiter was then however attentive and brought mains and desserts quickly and reduced the bill! We made it in time and for a bargain! For some reason also forgot to supply spoons! (Had to ask for one for my soup!)

    Excellent service. Staff friendly & helpful. Food tasty - fish & chips standard consistently high. We've been 3 times in the past 3 months. Mother in wheelchair. Thee staff go out of their way to help her in & position us at a table where she isn't being consistently bumped into unlike most other restaurants. Only negative - no disabled toilet but thats because of age of building.

    Service was so slow we had to leave withiut finishing our dessert. We had pre-theater menu, but despite us telling them 3 times when we had to leave, our food was still too slow. Also, had to ask for the pre-theater me ue as they didn't automatically give it to us, ans the wait person even had to ask someone else if it was ok, making us feel uncomfortable.
