Restaurant description

Set over 2 floors and with a wonderful outdoor terrace looking out over the famous Lower Gardens, The Real Greek Bournemouth is a modern spot for authentic Mediterranean delicacies.

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 Bournemouth 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 for everyone.

    Presentation of food was different, quick service.

    As expected the food was tasty. However, the service was appalling. It was not made clear anywhere on the website that you could only have the Christmas set menu if you booked by phone in advance. This was extremely disappointing as we had visitors from Basingstoke and had booked the Real Greek specifically for the Christmas menu. The staff were rude and were confused about the menus themselves. The manager said we couldn't have the menu but that we were allowed to look at it. This only annoyed us more. The waiters took a really long time to serve us while they decided it was more important to faff around the restaurant and chat to each other. There was a long delay on the adults' food even though the restaurant was pretty empty, resulting in the kids becoming restless as they finished half an hour before the adults. Overall an extremely disappointing experience particularly as we are regular customers of The Real Greek in Bournemouth. From now on I will be giving this restaurant a wide berth, as the price doesn't warrant the terrible service.

    Poor service. All the starters were wrong. Had to be redone. Waited over 45 mins for starter. Main course took even longer. Overall attention to detail was poor. Discount was provided for the inconvenience however that did not really compensate for the experience at the restaurant.

    Dinner last night was fantastic. The entire meal was amazing. The vegetarian meatballs were delicious. I always enjoy eating here, the staff are friendly and helpful. Have never had anything other than water and coffee to drink but can say that it is good coffee.

    The kids menu is lovely, the lunchtime menu is a total bargain, the gyros are amazing and the vegan plate was my new favourite. Great lunch!
