If you’ve got a craving for some delicious seafood, check out this list

The best time for mussels is any month with an ‘r’ at the end. Here are the best places to go for a seafood feast.

Spotlight On: Le Garrick

This rather sophistiqué restaurant in Covent Garden should be anyone's first choice when craving a bivalve blowout. Serving a mixture of French classics and traditional dishes with a twist, Le Garrick is perfect for a special occasion or a fancier-than-usual pre-theatre dinner, offering classy French dining in central London. Choose from moules frites or mariniere, and pair it with delicious white wine chosen by an experienced sommelier. They offer both a pre- and post-theatre dinner menu which includes moules frites for just £16.95 for 3 courses, so if you prefer getting a play in before you eat you won't be disappointed.

Where? Across London, in Soho, Central, Holborn and Kings Cross.
