Situated on Paddington Street, close to Madame Tussauds and the Hellenic Centre, The Real Greek Marylebone is located perfectly for escaping from the hectic shopping mecca of Oxford Street & Bond Street, being just a 7 minute walk away. With its modern, rustic and intimate interior mix and friendly staff, it is the ideal place to share a lovely meal with friends and family. Mezedes, Souvlakis, and Sharers are just some of the amazing variety of dishes available and with a wide selection of wines to complement the tastes and textures of the food, one can only emphasise that Marylebone is an experience not to be missed!

Nice restaurant just off Baker Street

The Real Greek is a small chain offering Greek-style cuisine in London, UK. I have been to their Paddington Street outlet a few times over the last months and I really like their new lunchtime set menu. It is reasonably priced with a good choice of mezze. The staff are quite friendly and the... read more

It's still good but a shame that it's not as good as it previously was. The food is just a little blander and the service was surly at best - our waiter seemed unable to engineer any warmth whatsoever and ended up just being a little rude. Hopefully this is just a blip...

Not my favourite at all. Went there once, food hasn't got much taste. It is like going to Bella Italia expecting tasty Italian food... There are loads of better Greek restaurants in London!

A friend and I ate at the real Greek on Sunday evening and were very impressed! There was excellent choice and I could have eaten almost everything on the menu very happily!! We ordered 3 dishes each and some flatbreads and hummus to start and shared the lot- the food tasted amazing and left just enough space for dessert! The... More

We booked for a large group of 10. The team serving us were great, Tenia and Giorgos looked after us all night. Very personal and the food was just delicious and OMG there was plenty of it. The atmosphere was fun with lots of talking and drinking. Very enjoyable night after a very hectic day at work.

We were really looking forward to revisiting this restaurant and its been a clear favourite of our friends who live in Marylebone for some time. There seemed to be new staff and the guy that greeted us was not as welcoming as the ladies that were there before. The waiter's tone was somewhat surly and when we asked if we... More

Stopped by this lovely restaurant that serves Greek food. The Greek salad had large chunks of feta, tomatoes, yellow and read peppers and olives. This is the closest to the real Greek salad that I’ve had outside of Greece, and all the cooks are from there. The homemade hummus was slightly chunky and served with fresh pita, and the chicken...

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
