Crafting nutritious Grecian cuisine, The Real Greek Bankside blends an authentic taste of the Mediterranean with edgy interior design. A sweeping bar and high tables indoors offset the tranquil al fresco area.

Showcasing robust flavours, The Real Greek menu presents an array of wholesome specialities. Ideal for sharing, tasty hot and cold mezes sit alongside souvlaki served straight from the grill. Favourites from the wide selection include juicy tiger prawns with chilli and garlic butter, or handmade British lamb patties with tahini sauce.

Extending tradition through to the dessert menu, The Real Greek restaurant offers a tantalisingly sweet selection, from Greek lemon cake drizzled with honey-infused syrup, to luxurious homemade baklava. Family-friendly The Real Greek London offers a fun meze and skewer selection, just for kids.

In the cultured South Bank area, The Real Greek Bankside offers a fashionable haunt. The iconic Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre sits 4 minutes’ walk away.

    Had a great dining experience here the other night. Great location along the Southbank. They even played some live music, which was very pretty but also a little loud at some points. My friend and I did the Peloponnese option where you choose 7 dishes to share for 32.50. Definitely plenty of food, in fact a bit too much food! But all of it was wonderful. Some of our favourite dishes were the houmous, chickpeas (revithea), and tiropitakia - these were literally amazing. Very quick service as well. I loved that they brought out the dishes in two rounds - hot and cold, so that we basically had a starter. Would 100% go back!

    First visit here and it did not disappoint. Service efficient and friendly and great for pre theatre ( Globe or Sam Wanamaker Studios). We had the Pelleponese sharing platter which was excellent except for the calamari which was a tad rubbery. This we mentioned to our waiter who said that he would pass the information on.

    Enjoyable. We were a party of four and opted for the sharing menu one vegetarian and one meat based. It was most enjoyable with something for everyone

    This restaurant used to be fabulous. It had an open outdoor area but someone seems to have taken the decision to encase it in glass. So it is stiflingly hot and although the roof opens is still rather uncomfortable and attracts lots of flies. It was much better how it was before. My friends and I had dined here for years but will probably not go out of our way in future. The food is still good though. And the service.

    really enjoyable, superb location and we had a table near the window, evening light over the river etc. A party of eight and it was a very relaxed atmosphere and the service was excellent. The food was good but not outstanding, but the overall experience was great.V nice house wine.

    We arrived early and they were still happy to seat us, given a choice of inside or out on the terrace. Lots of choice on the menu to cater for all tastes. Can highly recommend the Pulled pork, meatballs, lamb kefta, chicken wraps, lamb cutlets and chicken thigh. Full of flavour and reasonably priced. Left to eat in your own time no hassling for you to have the next course or pay. On the whole a very enjoyable experience and will definitely recommend to friends if travelling down that way.

    Quickly seated and served. Lovely view of the Thames. We had Tonia's Filoxenia and every course was fantastic. Spicy feta dip and the prawn saganaki were my highlights. Staff were friendly and the restaurant had a good atmosphere.
