Pre/post Theatre
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. You can now book a table outside on the beautiful terrace, overlooking Covent Garden Piazza - the perfect spot to enjoy the summer sun.

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.

My partner and I had pre-booked brunch at Tuttons for our anniversary weekend on 25/9/2021. We arrived on time and were promptly seated by the maitre d, who was lovely.

Needless to say, we were disappointed with the service. We were waiting at least 20-30mins just for someone to take our drinks order, and by the time the waitress came round to take our order for brunch, she looked like she couldn’t be bothered.

Having said that, what we did order for brunch was delicious (one Eggs Benedict, one bacon/fried egg & sourdough toast and 2 breakfast teas) and it wasn’t particularly noisy inside the restaurant, but I’m not sure if we’ll be rushing back anytime soon unless the customer service improves .

Starter poached egg over cooked
Main “no chicken sorry” 10 mins after placing order, “lamb then please” response “sorry we don’t any” oh well I
Suppose a burger will do.

Orders a second glass of wine, it never arrives!!

Hardly 5* service. Won’t be coming back here again…

Fantastic service and enjoyable food. Very attentive and the outside setting was amazing. A very atmospheric place for a date night in Covent Garden. Very attentive service. The waiting staff could not do enough for us!

First visit, staff extremely friendly and our waiter was wonderful. Food was excellent although a little disappointed that a few dishes were unavailable. Nevertheless we would definitely visit again when in London.

My friend and I did not stay we left. On arrival we were spoken rudely from the outside waiter and shown a very small corner table inside, even though my reservation was for outside and inside was near on empty. We were literally told off for not booking the pre-theatre menu even though I did. When we said we were leaving, we turned around to see one very rude waiter making rude/lude inappropriate signals we went and spoke with him and manager but without any apology .

Really exceptional ! A "must go" when in London! From the fabulous Hungarian Manager to the servers and the food, everything is so great! The room is elegant but not stuffy. The food is beautiful but affordable. The service is fabulous but unobtrusive ! Thank you Tuttons!

Absolutely nothing special at all, and not worth the visit.

We arrived at the restaurant just after7:00 and I clearly said that I had booked a table. There was some confusion because the restaurant said afterwards that I did not attend as booked. I don’t know how this could have happened. This aside, the menu and wine list are very good and we had a really nice dinner. A very attentive waiter looked after us. I will look forward to my next visit to Tuttons.

Awful welcome, wouldn't let us double order alcohol and chucked us out saying they needed the table although half empty. Spent 400 quid between 3 of us, perhaps they thought we were going to do a runner? I will next time for sure!! Self fulfilling prophecy!!

This was an early evening dinner follwing an afternoon event and so we arrived with good appetites. The welcome at the door was very good and we were shown to a very good table. Service is very efficient without being overbearing and we were very well looked after.

The menu is varied and there would be something to suit everyone including vegans, though that did not apply to us. We found a starter and a main was adequate even though we had said we were very hungry! The food was delicious.

Set menu for £19.95 was very good value. Portions were substantially and excellent tasty food. Service was great. A bit quiet on a Wednesday but was expected due to curfew guidelines.

You must make it really clear to them that you want the open table special menu - as they arent very forthcoming with it. While I couldnt say the food was outstanding it - the special menu is good value for money.

My wife and I visited this restaurant following a visit to the Shard. The meals were lovely but not cheap. The staff were very attentive and made a rainy evening in the city a very pleasant one. I would definitely eat here again.
