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.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Food is always really tasty. Meze dishes are great - lots of variety, and service is fast and friendly, even when really busy - which is usual.

    Lovely ambience Booking system very easy to use really appreciated the text beforehand which gave me directions Staff exceptionally welcoming I had made a mistake booking only for four when they were five in our party but there was no hassle in finding us another table even though the restaurant was really busy. The food was good well presented and a perfect restaurant for a group of friends meeting

    The food was really nice, but the service was a bit disappointing, it was slow and the staff didn’t look around to see if the costumers need something

    Lovely little restaurant not far from the tube. Authentic Greek cuisine with dishes served in a similar style to afternoon tea! Staff very friendly and helpful. Food excellent with generous portions. The place was packed which says it all!
