Two of us dined here on a Friday evening. We opted for the Peloponnese which is a meal deal for two people at £29.75. The food was delicious, plentiful and fantastic value for money. The views are amazing and there was even live music. You almost forget you're in a chain restaurant. I will definitely return!

I had a lovely late lunch at this nice Greek restaurant, after a visit to Tate Modern! Michael looked after us. What a lovely and genuine guy! Friendly, smiling and attentive. He served us a great wine, we loved it, we wanted to have a Greek wine, and his recommendation was spot on; really tasty...! Then the food arrived, and... More

The Real Greek with its amazing view overlooking the River Thames with its very friendly and helpful staff with a buzzy after work atmosphre is definintely a must for anyone wishing to dine out in London.

Visited with family. Lovely choice of lots of different dishes. Great location, right on the banks of Thames, just down from Borough Market. Lots to eat, great value.

On the riverside near The Globe, I've eaten here a few times, and each time it's been good. The specialise in mezze style, each plate around £5 or £6 some a little more. Great vegetarian along with various seafood. Friends who eat meat have also really liked it. Always very friendly service.

Excellent resturant. We had walked from Greenwich so had worked up an appetite. Great selection of maze dishes. Lovely desserts. Good service. Delicious food. Music and the smell of barbecue lamb. Yum yum.

Busy atmospheric restaurant with good views over the Thames. The food was typical Greek, tasty but not outstanding, service was prompt and friendly, prices were good given the location.

We stopped in here before a play at The Globe without a reservation. It's a fairly large restaurant and they sat us right away. My husband is veggie, I am not but that was not a problem here. The food was delicious. The Peloponnese was a fun choice for us, it is basically dinner for two. Several small courses are... More

After a stressful afternoon at Greenwich Observatory [see my TripAdvisor review of Ships, Clocks and Stars], we disembarked back at Bankside looking for necessary sustenance, both liquid and solid. Having spent many happy holidays in Crete, we decided on the Real Greek, and while we selected from the menu, reverted to holiday type with a few Mythos beers. All that... More

We found this restaurant by accident but are so pleased we did. It was just like travelling to Greece for the couple of hours we were there. The food was good and the it is a great place to watch the world go by.
