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.

    We had a great time -all the dishes we chose were excellent. Htipiti is one of our favourites.

    Friendly staff and efficient. Unfortunately, the deal that I had booked wasn't on offer now - although I was not made aware of this when I booked. The fare that my friend and I chose was absolutely delicious - we chose the set menu of £9.99 with the choices being different for both of us so that we could share. We also each had a glass of white wine which was very acceptable.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to The Real Greek - the food was fantastic, as was the service. We would recommend this restaurant to everyone. It is also a great location in Covent Garden/theatre land area of London!
