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.

  • (((** 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.

    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.

    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...

    Love this place. It's part of a chain but doesn't feel like it. The staff were really lovely and the food was delectable. We had the meze mainly hot. All was very tasty and presented well. Always go here for lunch when in Covent Garden.

    Great food, great service. They reserved a lovely table for the five of us, and accommodated for our cake to be brought out at the right time.
