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.
Newly refurbished by lead interior designer Russell Sage, it offers a stunning new interior to compliment the enjoyable al fresco dining experience in fair weather, in what is undoubtedly one of London’s most unique areas.
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.

Nothing wrong with it but it felt a bit mass food and I could easily have made the same at home. They had run out of the vegetarian option.

Had to have fish & chips while in London. Theirs was excellent, particularly since the fish used was plaice rather than cod.

This restaurant has declined in quality and service since my last visit and the food was at best described as average. Burger was dry and tasteless and the service was lack luster. The restaurant used to be a pre show staple but has become nothing more than a turn and burn tourist trap eatery with the price tags to match. A shame but don’t waste your money here

Terrible, rude, slow and unhelpful service. Food is ok but overpriced by 50%. If it was located anywhere else it would have gone bankrupt by now.

A large restaurant with plenty of seats. We were sat in a little booth next to the door which was a squash having our bags at our feet and the welcoming cool air in the early evening turned a little too chilly as the evening wore on. A move brasserie type menu with a smooth terrine for starters and scallops stater portion for main with broccoli. Service was friendly and we got given our bill as the server was finishing their shift.

Pre theatre menu. Not offered until requested. Trying to get the customer ordering from the more expensive a la carte? Also one of 3 starters on the pre theatre not available at 17.30, limiting choice. Not good!

The food was luke warm, not the best tasting either. Pork cutlet was tough, ham bon bon tasted a bit sour. Applied pie dessert was tasty, but again cold, didn't think apple pie was supposed to be cold. The menu's changed a lot since my last visit in September, its seems to have gone downhill a bit, however the cold food seems to be a theme, it was cold in September aswell. Customer service was good, helpful staff, but I'm not sure if that's enough, surely the food must be top priority.

I like the ambiance of Tuttons. It took a while for anyone to come to the table but after that service was good.
The prawn starter I thought was pretty average, but the main of Duck was delicious. I normally don't take dessert but couldn't resist toffee pudding which was absolutely fab!
My friend also enjoyed his meal.
We only had one large gin and tonic no other alcohol The bill was just over £100! So for atmosphere right in the centre of Covent Garden that is not bad at all.
Overall yes I would visit and recommend.

Had a confirmed booking through open table which they didn’t honour, we arrived and they just said they were fully booked and had no table, gave no empathy they just blamed the app so we had to leave and go and find somewhere else

Great pre theatre meal, waited for table in bar as it was raining but very small area staff went out of their way to get us seated at our table as quick as possible. Amazing food. A bit near the door and very draughty when people coming in and out. Would definitely go again.

We enjoyed the food at Tuttons, however, on being charged£4.75 for a bottle of still water we felt that we should have been told of the price before it was brought to our table. How do they justify charging this amount. Especially as I suspect it was merely poured from the tap!!!

Tuttons is a classic Covent Garden venue, with a good atmosphere among old-fashioned fittings looking out to the old market building. I ate there with friends for the first time for a long time. Pleasant friendly service and good reliable food and wine.

Really super food! Excellent service - even on a busy pre-Christmas evening when so many restaurants think this "busy period" is an excuse for sub-standard service.

Good value food for the centre of London. It's a shame that we felt squashed in which made it feel less intimate, hence only 4/5. Also service added onto the bill which does not go directly to the staff, at least that is what we were told! Swiftly removed so we could tip directly.

The atmosphere was awesome. Christmas lights and decorations were everywhere in the restaurant since this was only 2 weeks out from the 25th. We had the buttered haddock and shepherds pie, they were most agreeable.
The food was great and its location, just across the street from Coventry Square mall and many other stores, was wonderful. If anyone is interested, its also a 5 min walk to the theatre district.
That was the primary reason for choosing them , and it worked well.
The only negative was our waiter. He wasn’t efficient and had a somewhat lousy disposition and attitude. They will add a service fee to the bill which is OPTIONAL. We would have paid it except for the very marginal server.

Lovely cosy restaurant with heated outdoor area. Our shiraz came warmed, which was a pleasant surprise! We then ate from the pre-theatre menu which was delicious and excellent value for money. The staff were welcoming and friendly and provided excellent service.
