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.

    Food really Greek. Service fast for pre theatre & friendly. Value ok. Clever meze-based food serving technique. But too noisy and cramped for us (60s). Suggest provide more than one paper napkin for oily flat bread eaters.

    Good value, good food, good service. Greek music would have felt more authentic than Sam Smith but not a problem.

    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.
