Restaurant description

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 wraps, served straight from the grill. Favourites from the wide selection include juicy tiger prawns in a rich tomato sauce, with spinach, pickled peppers and sprinkled with feta, or handmade British lamb patties with Greek yoghurt.

Extending tradition through to the dessert menu, The Real Greek restaurant offers a tantalisingly sweet selection, from Greek filo custard pie to luxurious homemade baklava. Family-friendly The Real Greek 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.

    Best features- service and good food and wine, was noisy due to large group. Quieter after 8pm.

    The service was poor and when the main course arrived it was cold. Very disappointing.

    Food was dry and over cooked! Only the pita and dip to start was nice! And the Prosecco...

    This is one of my favourite restaurants in the South Bank are, lovely, fresh greek food, good service and a terrace outside by the river, my preferred place to sit, with good views down the Thames and across to St Pauls cathedral. There is a wide-ranging menu that is also good for vegetarians and the food is unfailingly high standard and well cooked. There are some good value choices as well, although I probably wouldn't try the Booktable £15 meal deal again, just because I prefer some of the other option on the menu.The service is pretty good as well, for a busy restaurant.

    Love this place. Handy for The Globe. Always a nice welcome and good service despite the restaurant being busy. Food is great and portions big enough too. Will definitely be back.
