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.

    Fantastic food and service. Very authentic Greek food. Good value and great menu choice. Lovely little restaurant in a Greek style. Would definitely recommend.

    We had Christmas menu. General feeling was we should have gone for main menu. Didn't enjoy starters; main menu enjoyed in parts. A member of our party said she had more enjoyable food experience at Westfield

    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!

    Real Greek is a very busy restaurant, especially on Saturday late afternoon/evening. If you want a quick bite before opera or teather is fine. Definitely not for having a relaxed time with your friends.

    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.

    Staff was brilliant and service excellent as was the ambience of the restaurant but sadly the food was somewhat lacking. No garlic in the Tzatziki and the Taramasalata looked grey. Not Real Greek food to me - more like Londonised version of it.

    An excellent deal. The food was plentiful & freshly cooked & very tasty. The service was great. I couldn't fault the experience at any level.
