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.

The restaurant was very busy and had a buzzing atmosphere. I would recommend booking in advance as there were queues to get in and people were being turned away.

We've been to the Real Greek once before so knew we could get the kids d of food we liked for a reasonable price. It didn't let us down and we are well on chicken, lamb and some cold starters. All very good. The place was busy but we were looked after well. Certainly a good place to go.

We had a lovely meal before our theatre visit. Portions perfect. Can’t fault the service. I have a nut allergy, so the staff were so helpful, I felt very safe eating there. Our waitress was so lovely.
