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 great service

    Although the food was nice the tables here are extremely close together and not a comfortable experience. When we asked if we could move we were put in front of a poorly fitting external door (fire exit?) where we had to put up with a cold draft and smoke from the member of staff sitting on the step outside. There was also an unpleasant smell in the restaurant from the downstairs toilets so all in all it was a disappointing experience. Not sure we'll be back.

    Very busy place, we had a table downstairs which was ok, upstairs very crowded. Food god and waiters very helpful.
