Combining Greek dining tradition with a chic, contemporary interior design, The Real Greek St Martin's Lane always boasts a bustling, inviting ambience. Serving tastes from across the eastern Mediterranean, the restaurant sits right between the hubs of Leicester Square and Covent Garden, making it a perfect refuelling spot for days out in these areas.

The Real Greek menu showcases traditional Greek cuisine, rich in flavour and perfect for sharing. There is a great selection of hot and cold meze, as well as wholesome grill items including dukkah chicken wings, tender pork belly, grilled octopus and lamb meatballs. Souvlaki wraps come made with soft flatbread, homemade tzatziki, sweet paprika, and fillings ranging from Loukaniko sausage, through to falafel with tahini.

Tempting sweet treats on the Real Greek Covent Garden menu feature more Greek traditions, such as lemon cake with honey-infused syrup, to baklava and Greek sundaes. There are wines and beers from Greece, as well as the famous ouzo spirit to finish.

Offering a great selection of Greek delicacies, and full of Mediterranean welcome, The Real Greek London is 2 minutes' walk from Leicester Square Tube Station.

    Great welcome despite arriving 15 mins early. Good table and very pleasant service. Lovely food and plenty of it. Can't wait to go again but no restaurant near us.

    Great authentic Greek food!!

  • ((((* 31 October 2016 by Douglas Adams from London

    A quaint and relaxing atmosphere- an unusual lack of music but didn't detract in any way. The food was above average for a Greek restaurant and was reasonably priced. However, the cod mezze was very salty.

    Would definitely come again, and would definitely recommend the octopus

    I like this restaurant very much - food, service, location all just what I'm looking for, which means that I have visited many times, and hopefully will continue to do so.

    We didn't know what to expect but we really enjoyed our meal! Food was really good, prices were reasonable and staff was on point. We would come back here next time we come back to London

    A very enjoyable dining experience for my wife's 60th birthday. We were made to feel very welcome, the food and wine was delicious and the staff singing happy birthday was very thoughtful. Thank you for making it a wonderful meal.
