To take a break fro English fare during your London visit (or for a great meal if you live in London) The Real Greek is The Real Business. Typically Greek the food is fresh and delicious, the setting great and the prices reasonable. As with most Greek eateries I would recommend a selection of meze to share. We opted for... More

About dead on our feet with touring, this was a welcome respite with a view. Food very good; wait staff good. No need to shy away.

Great Greek chain in London right on the river front and 5 min walk from London bridge station. The food was really good and a great value (although some dishes range in portion size), they also do a 25% student discount 7 days a week on food which is really great

On a Saturday night: I was amazed they managed to deliver orders so quickly in such a huge and busy place. Food is ok, but portions could be a bit more generous. A tip: if you book, ask to sit near or away from the orchestra according to your preferences - if you seat near the orchestra, that area of... More

We enjoyed a great lunch at this restaurant overlooking the busy river Thames. We chose from the special lunch menu accompanied by a very fresh white wine. The service was very good and the food proved to be very tasty. We both had a dessert and coffee to follow, we would thoroughly recommend this restaurant and will certainly come again.

This is Greek food served the British way so its not quite the same as eating in a taverna in Athens! Portion sizes are small considering the price but there are lots of options and a good selection for Vegi's. The foreign accents of the staff (not Greek) spoil the atmosphere a bit and tables are too close together for... More

Visited in August as part of a family celebration night out. We booked in advance for the four of us and were taken straight to our table on arrival. For ease, we ordered a selection from the Anatolian & Peloponnese menus. This gave us 15 different dishes, including meats, breads, vine leaves and beans. Delicious..............................we devoured the lot! We had... More

We chose this restaurant because of its convenience (it's directly on the riverfront a few hundred yards from the Globe Theatre) and because there were tables free outside. The platter of mezes looked like good value - and indeed, they were excellent quality and value. So good indeed that we were tempted to order more. What was intended as a... More

We chose the restaurant as we were going to an evening performance at the Globe and wished some late lunch. The table for eight people was pre-booked. We turned up somewhat early but the table was ready but we chose to have a drink at the bar. Really good house white which was inexpensive. We ordered the Meze 'Peloponnese' which... More
