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.

    I did not enjoy the service very much as not only did it take the waiters longer to take our order for drinks and food but also 3 couples who had come in a lot later than us had their orders taken and served before us. The food was amazing, however it was hard of hearing as there was too much noise! The space was kind of small so it was hard to have a conversation with my girlfriend. Lastly the waiting again took a long time to come give us the bill. Overall the food was amazing but the service and seating could have major improvements and be more efficient.

    Bright and spacious restaurant with a good selection of meze dishes, all of which were delicious. I had the octopus, which was flavourful, and a generous greek salad; my friend had dolmades and the lamb chops which he said were excellent. I selected the venue because my guest eats gluten free, and there was plenty for him to choose from. Service was swift and attentive. If there was any downside, the restaurant was a little noisy, with added background music, so not for a place for in depth conversation but ideal for an informal lunchtime catch-up with friends

    Great food, small restaurant but cosy, must try the baklava at the end!!

    However we entered during peak time and therefore service after eating our mains was not as quick, had to wait for more tap water and then find someone to ask for dessert.

    The food is standard Greek fare. Nothing exciting and probably not as nice as Greek 'tapas ' you can buy in a supermarket. Staff pleasant. Lighting kept changing from dim to really bright and music went from background to loud and back again. Wouldn't be my first choice if venue but they do offer gf food which is why we went.

    Ate here for dinner, food was excellent, order 2-3 dishes each and it is plenty. On a Saturday it is essential to book as it was sold out and they were turning people away. Even with a reservation they were running 15 mins over as it it is so popular. Service was average nothing special but rate this place for the food alone.

    Very good food! Friendly staff, except for pervy chef! Nice atmosphere. Food serving slightly strange as didn't arrive at same time and not enough table space!

    Still a very good experience on the whole.

    Food and service was excellent! Sad they ran out of olives so early in the evening.
