    Restaurants in Leicester Square – Dining Diversity

    One thing that you are not short on while sampling Leicester Square restaurants is variety. Within a stone’s throw of the park at the centre of the square, you are guaranteed to find something adventurous, or something very simple; anything you want. Want to try the most delicate vegetarian Indian dish, or something spicy from a Moroccan tagine? No problem. Traditional English breakfast? Got it. Trendy drinks and tiny food at a nouveau bar? You can find it here. But you don’t have to break the bank; in addition to the upscale eateries, many of the best restaurants in Leicester Square cater to smaller budgets, with reasonably priced menus and drinks specials. Diversity is everything here, you just have to see it to believe it.

    Places to eat in Leicester Square – Patios and Movies

    One of the best things about Leicester Square restaurants—especially in summer—is the chance to eat outside while watching the pedestrians stroll by in this car-free area. On Leister Square, Irving Street, Coventry Street towards Piccadilly and the other streets immediately surrounding the Square, choose from pubs, quaint cafes and also international restaurants featuring patios with a view to the action. Leicester Square is nicknamed Theatreland for a reason—within its small area there are theatres from all of the major players as well as several smaller theatres, and the bustling atmosphere makes for an exciting evening. Before taking in the latest Hollywood boondoggle or an edgy independent film, stop off at a Leicester Square restaurant for a romantic pre-movie dinner.
