Offering a trendy take on Greek ‘street food’ The Real Greek Covent Garden is surrounded by the arty bustle of Theatreland. In the light-filled dining room, glossy communal benches and drop-bulb lighting evoke a cool, underground vibe.

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.

Perched next to the hub of the market square, The Real Greek is a 4-minute walk from Covent Garden Tube Station.

    Excellent meal, great food, promptly served as we requested as we were going on to the theatre. Conveniently located for West End theatres.

    We went for a 60th Birthday celebration yesterday and had a great lunch. The food was beautifully displayed and the staff were all really lovely and helpful. We were even telephoned when we left something behind. I would definitely go back.

    I've been several times to this place and enjoyed it but this time I was disappointed. The food was mostly good good but part of the aubergine i had tasted bad and I think the skin part of it was rotten. It was also very crowded and we didn't have much space at all where we sat. You need to be a small person to fit comfortably into such a full dining area.

    Great...not romantic but functional.

  • (((** 24 April 2017 by Frank Hope from Wargrave

    Very quick service, which was good for pre-theatre. Food is formulaic and pre-prepared. An easy eat, but nothing special.

  • ((((( 24 April 2017 by Louise Hudson from London

    Often go to Real Greek in various locations in London when meeting up with family as we all love the sharing plates which I think are good value for money. Attractively served on a rack of plates. Have been to the restaurants? to 3 different locations in London and food and service always of a high standard.

    Fantastic food and service. Great experience!

    Too small, one on bankside much better. Poor service. Average food although it is cheap so can't moan too much. People also queue outside and then door is left open- not appreciated in cooler months if sitting by door...
