Place for lunch in Covent Garden Area

We're coming down to london to see madonna next thurs and have booked into the travelodge in covent garden for the night. As we can't check in until 3pm we're planning on having a lunch on arrival in covent garden, but would like somewhere in mind before we arrive. As there are 5 of us (all women) i can envisage everyone wandering round with no decisions being made, and i can't bear that!

We'd like somewhere decent, not too pricey and i'd prefer non-chain if poss! Any suggestions would be great - thanks!!

The World Cafe in Neal's Yard is quite nice - healthy food & interesting shops around.

I second that idea. It is pretty good, different and very affordable. I keep a very good souvenir of my visit there.

Try the Bistro, it's run by Greeks or Turks and very reasonably priced with good set menus. We have been there many times. You may have to ask directions but it is definitely situated in Covent Garden

It's actually called Bistro 1 and it's on Southampton Street which a road linking Covent Garden and Strand. Excellent value.

I like Belgo's. Enjoyed it every time I've been - about half a dozen times and they have a cheaper lunch menu.

Concur with the suggestion of Bistro 1. An alternative might be The Mediterranean Kitchen in St Martin's Lane which does a lunch menu for about £10.

Bertorelli's in Floral Street, next to the opera house. It has a cafe downstairs that is cheaper than the resto, and the food's excellent.

For a few quid more, I think the food at Da Marios in Endell St. is special. It's a no frills place but good Italian food in family atmo. Booking essential.
