    Sufficiently private outdoor seating thanks to tidy flowerpots. All dishes are expertly cooked and prepared.

    Excellent service and food. My date and I really enjoyed our time here, the restaurant was equipped with a live pianist who really made our night enjoyable. Each plate of food we tried was truly scrumptious. If you haven't tried The Real Greek yet, you really need to, and bring someone special with you to share it with.

    We were celebrating my daughter’s 21st birthday and what a surprise to receive bubbly on our arrival! The friendly waitress was vivacious and efficient and brought our drinks order without delay. She gave us suggestions and advised on choices and how much to order- I think we shocked her by the amount we consumed in the end but it was too delicious to leave anything on the plates! The relaxed atmosphere and sociable/sharing of food made it perfect for the occasion. My daughter was delighted by the cake and the fiery ‘candle’ which made her feel very special. The Real Greek certainly made it a memorable lunch and went beyond our expectations. Thank you all very much for the extras, they were very much appreciated and we’ll definitely be recommending the restaurant and returning soon ourselves.

    I was disappointed with the service and quality of the food. I specifically mentioned we were celebrating a birthday. The waiter was not very friendly and our main courses i.e chicken and I halloumi was tough and tasted precooked. This was a real disappointment as I’ve generally been pleased with my experiences. A real set back
