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.

    Very nice meal. Staff attentive and friendly. Good value. A bit noisy.

    The food was good, and the waiters very attentive. The only gripe I would have is that the tables were a little crowded tiogether. I felt like my elbow was touching the woman on the next table.

    Perfect, Just perfect. It is my 3rd time at this restaurant and all the three times I went everything was perfect, so it is about time I leave a review since they are so consistent. We arrived on time. The moment I said my name, the Greek lady at the entrance immediately reminded me I had requested a table for two away from the singer, because that night I wanted quite environment so we can talk. If you want Greek action, singing and dancing, the ground floor is for you. If you want more privacy and quite ambiance, the small room one floor down is for you. She took us downstairs, beautiful ambiance. The waitresses were extremely friendly, nice and talkative without intruding, very quick and efficient, food came fast and it was delicious as all the two previous times. I happily left a good tip and whenever I want a great safe choice in the area, I know where to go.

    Wasn't the best welcome nor the seating given to me. I was perched onto the window sill and my dinner was served there. Would have been better in KFC or Mac. Food was far from my expectation mainly having been in Greece and eaten in top restaurants. House wine was very poor. Drinking vinegar. I left it.
