I had my 50th Birthday at the Real Greek and by chance once more ended up in the Real Greek on yet another birthday. On a very busy night night the helpful reception staff got us in quite quickly considering it was packed! Seems I'm always in the company of a Greek when I visit no change this time and... More

We stopped in for the lunch special, which I was thrilled to see a range of vegetarian options (I can recommend them all). Sitting bank side with a view of St Paul's, as well as the Thames and several bridges, it was just lovely. The staff were courteous and kind, and the food wonderful. Incredibly good value for the food,... More

I really enjoyed the variety of foods on offer here. The atmosphere is very welcoming and the staff are extremely accommodating and polite. We ate here for a celebration with work and it was really, really enjoyable and easygoing. The staff were happy to divide the bill by all parties and they certainly deserved their tip! The facilities were clean... More

My wife and I always head here when we need a little holiday boost. To sit and eat well cooked and prepared food and a tasty drop of chilled Mythos whilst people watching along the Bankside with St Paul's as a backdrop, couldn't ask for more. The service is always quick and with a smile and even when I ask... More

We were a group of 10 having dinner, from the moment we were welcomed at the door you felt this was going to be a great place. Great food, quick and attentive service in what was a very busy environment, well worth trying out.

Got a very warm welcome from all staff on our way to the table. The menu is with Greek tapa dishes, nice to try different dishes. It was busy but we did not have to wait too long. The food was fresh and tasteful, we really enjoyed it. Service was efficient and very friendly. All in all good value for... More

We came here on a late night since we were walking around looking a place to eat in the Bankside and there was this amazing aroma of good food coming the inside. But to our disappoint the food was very plain and prices not good value. Maybe was a busy night but wont probably come back.

Came here in October 2014 with my boyfriend for an afternoon lunch. After walking along side the water all day, we stopped in for some drinks and appetizers. The food was amazing! Everything we ordered was delcious! Service could have been better, but being a waitress myself, I understand Sundays get a little crazy. I have to say sitting outside... More

Located on the southbank of the Thames. The Real Greek offers a pleasant experience at very reasonable prices. You can have a free bite before passing the door, even if you are not going to dine there. There's a small band playing Greek songs, and you can join the dances whenever you like. It is always crowded and noisy, but... More
