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.

    We pre-booked the lunch special with a glass of prosecco. All delicious and tasted just like the lovely Greek food we enjoyed when we holidayed there in the past. Service, location and ambience was perfect.

    Good selection of cold and hot savoury vegan dishes, and then delicious vegan-friendly baklava for dessert. Location close to Royal Opera House is very convenient for dining before the performance. Reasonably priced and fair value for the prime location.

    lovely food, proper portion sizes-not ridiculous huge plateful! Great lunch offer, friendly, attentive and helpful staff. Would definitely go again.

    The portions were small and overcooked. The table was cramped and the downstairs dining area smelt like a toilet air freshener.

    Excellent food, will definitely be returning when next in London
