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.

    Love the real greek, i've never had a bad meal there yet. We were in a bit of a rush as we had a show to go for and we were already running late, the restaurant were amazing they kept our table and the made sure the food came out very quick! Credit to the super speedy and friendly staff, already looking forward to our next meal there. The location is also super convenient next to the underground and walking distance to all the bars, comedy shows etc.

    An excellent restaurant with very tasty, reasonably priced food and hood service. However, you must book to secure a table.

    Had the lunch menu, very good value at £8:50, and plenty of choice including vegan. Prompt polite service and not rushed to leave. Booking essential. Very enjoyable.

    Food is always really tasty. Meze dishes are great - lots of variety, and service is fast and friendly, even when really busy - which is usual.

    Lovely ambience Booking system very easy to use really appreciated the text beforehand which gave me directions Staff exceptionally welcoming I had made a mistake booking only for four when they were five in our party but there was no hassle in finding us another table even though the restaurant was really busy. The food was good well presented and a perfect restaurant for a group of friends meeting

    The food was really nice, but the service was a bit disappointing, it was slow and the staff didn’t look around to see if the costumers need something
