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.

    Halloumi and vegetable skewers were excellent. Staff were friendly and attentive. The live music (weekends) created a lovely atmosphere.

    Beautiful location, nice decoration, friendly staff but the food wasn't what I expected. Poor menu, not real greek flavours, small portions in a high price.

    The food is tasty as usual but the service wasn't the greatest. We've been welcome from a polish guy that gave us the table we wanted and he was really nice. The restaurant wasn't busy but we waited 30 minutes to get our tab water refilled, no one ever came to ask if we needed something of if everything was ok. It was not our first visit and felt a bit disappointed by the service.
