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.

    Great location right on the Thames, very friendly and attentive staff; the food is delicious and the menu gives calories for all dishes making is very helpful for the more health conscious.

    fantastic food and fantastic service, first time dining here, we asked our waiter to let us know if we were ordering too much food and he pointed us in the right direction.

    Lovely location with a good view of the river. Friendly service and I loved the idea of sharing meals in a platter.

    The restaurant was extremely hot and we waited 45 mins for any hot food to arrive. I have visited this chain before in Covent Garden last year and was very dissappinted with my experience this time. The hummus lacked garlic and and real flavour - s very small portion for almost £5. The Greek salad was tomatoes, 6 pieces of cucumber and 4 pieces of feta. No seasoning at all - very little care and attention went into it. The rest of the food was pretty average and Luke warm. Not once did anyone ask us if everything was OK. I know my Greek food having dated a Greek Cypriot for many years. This was not an authentic experience at all compared to last year.

    Our party of nine was aged 75 down to 7. All really enjoyed the party menu. The service was good and the food excellent. The restaurant was quite full and therefore noisy, so my great niece had to repeat what the waiter said, I could not hear.

    First class. Service prompt but not pushy. Staff did all we could want them to at just the right pace.
