The Real Greek does a grand job of reviving warm memories of holiday hospitality, although the food is better and more varied than your stereotypical tourist-trap taverna in Kos or Kalamaki. Animated staff are as welcoming as can be, so order a Mythos beer and some mezze – perhaps lightly battered salt cod with tangy lemon mayonnaise or tender octopus char-grilled with herbs and garlic, alongside decent renditions of dolmades, hummus and grilled halloumi. Also save room for some smoky grilled skewers, juicy souvlaki wraps (the pork belly is excellent) and desserts ranging from bona-fide baklava to creamy sundaes – just avert your eyes from the calorie counts next to each item. Lightning-fast two-course lunches are a steal, but The Real Greek's wide-ranging, shareable menu and “fabulous entertainment” mean it’s also a no-brainer for evening parties.
Try 200+ wines and food from top restaurants.
The foodie event of the year is back! Hundreds of wines and spirits to taste, alongside food from some of London’s most exciting restaurants.

I love The Real Greek! This was my third visit and the food was yet again amazing. Superb value for money and wonderful waiters/waitresses.
Will be bringing more friends to sample the Mezze :)
Amazing food and super value for money using the ‘2 courses for £10’ menu. Would always recommend The Real Greek.

Don't write this off as your average chain eaterie because this venue sets it a world apart! Yes, it's the standard menu and quality you'd expect from The Real Greek: the usual hummous, tzatziki dippy dishes, grilled meats, greek salads etc (in my opinion great as I love Greek food and I love getting to try lots of smaller dishes). And the wine list is short and heavy on Greek contributions (it's not a nation known for enotec-ery!) but there are reasonably priced New Worlds on there too.
But here's the thing: this is served up in a fantastic pub conversion with oodles of character and just the right dollop of intimacy. You'll be sitting up at high, narrow tables on old bar stools, surrounded by lots of aged wood panelling, cosily lit by dim, low-slung bulbs but with lots of natural light from the old pub windows. Smiley, efficient service tops it off.
In an area where you could easily end up in a tourist trap, this is an atmospheric, reasonably priced gem. Great for when you just can't wait for that table at Great Queen Street, great for a catch-up with friends and great for first dates.
