Crafting nutritious Grecian cuisine, The Real Greek Bankside blends an authentic taste of the Mediterranean with edgy interior design. A sweeping bar and high tables indoors offset the tranquil al fresco area.

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.

In the cultured South Bank area, The Real Greek Bankside offers a fashionable haunt. The iconic Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre sits 4 minutes’ walk away.

    The perfect meal - we sat in the outside area which was great as the music was a lot lower (if you don't like loud music avoid the inside area). The food was amazing - so varied and so good, especially the vegetarian dishes. There is a good list of allergens which, as we needed both gluten- and dairy-free, was really useful. Great service and we weren't hurried but could take our time over the meal. Great view of the river from our table. If going to the theatre, choosing the 4.30 pm meal slot gives you plenty of time.

    Bit rubbish. Apart from the potatoes not of the good was hot, luke warm at best. The chicken was dry and they hadn't taken the take off the prawns. Also covered everything in the same green herb (dill?) which wasn't nice and made everything taste the same. Desert was also poor. I wouldn't eat here again.

    Location fabulous. Food and ambience superb. We visit here when we go to the Globe usually 3 or 4 times a year. Only criticism this time is the service left a little to be desired. Not terribly busy but we waited for everything.

    The food was good but it is a pity that the Fixed Price menu is not available on Sunday.

    Restaurant is amazing, we love going there but only to be sitting in the outdoor area. Inside is very busy and noisy and warm

    Delicious, good service and excellent value - with a view of St Paul's Cathedral thrown in!
