Restaurant description

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 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 Covent Garden 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.

Perched next to the hub of the market square, The Real Greek is a 4-minute walk from Covent Garden Tube Station.

    Came here for my partners birthday. Have been many times before and this was another time that didn't disappoint. The food was exceptional, the service was fast, efficient and friendly and we had a great time. The vegan menu is especially wonderful!

    First visit and highly impressed with the range of food, particularly as we had a vegetarian in our party. The food was tasty with the three of us collectively picking from the set menus. The restaurant was nearly full, we were glad we booked in advance, with a great ambiance when the weather was not so good outside. The staff were attentive and helpful and I am sure we will return. The overall cost of the meal was surprisingly low for this area of London.

    Good service though as a short sitting you are somewhat rushed, mains were delivered before finishing starters!

    The place was clean and the food was good,but could do with less tables as they are so crammed in we nearly knocked someones meal off the table has we were leaving.

    Good quality food, and service very good - not intrusive at all. Excellent location - Covent Garden. We ordered from the star deal menu - Starter, dip, main meal & a glass of prosecco for £15:00, brilliant deal. Best flat bread and hummus I have ever tasted and portions are generous. Only let down was the state of the women's toilets, - absolutely disgusting.
