If you're wandering around Covent Garden with your parents looking for a nice, not too expensive meal, you could do a lot worse than Palms. Serving sort of franglais food (pasta, fishcakes, chicken) food, it's a pleasant atmosphere, good service and a reasonable choice of tasty food for a good price. It's been in Covent Garden for a number of years now, and is usually pretty busy, but booking isn't normally necessary. I'd recommend the salmon fishcakes and fries, and a decent bottle of wine can be had without breaking the bank. It's not the most exciting place to eat, but the food is always nice and it's suitable for all ages. A reliable choice!
