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 served straight from the grill. Favourites from the wide selection include juicy tiger prawns with chilli and garlic butter, or handmade British lamb patties with tahini sauce.

Extending tradition through to the dessert menu, The Real Greek restaurant offers a tantalisingly sweet selection, from Greek lemon cake drizzled with honey-infused syrup, to luxurious homemade baklava. Family-friendly The Real Greek London offers a fun meze and skewer selection, just for kids.

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

    Dining experience was find, although restaurant was very small and tables were too close together which did not give you the privacy you would like when dining. Service was good and food was produced promptly, although I would try another one of their larger restaurants in future.

    I have been eating the same dishes visiting Greek and have a good comparison. Some of the dishes were better some not so good, shrimps were overcooked and lamb meatballs too small and therefore dry. But flavors were there. Had a chance to try Greek red wine which was a normal table wine, no complaints.
