More about The Real Greek - Bankside

Crafting nutritious Grecian cuisine, The Real Greek Bankside blends an authentic taste of the Mediterranean with edgy interior design. A sweeping bar and high tables indoors offset the tranquil al fresco area.

Showcasing robust flavours, The Real Greek menu presents an array of wholesome specialities. Ideal for sharing, tasty hot and cold mezes sit alongside souvlaki served straight from the grill. Favourites from the wide selection include juicy tiger prawns with chilli and garlic butter, or handmade British lamb patties with tahini sauce.

Extending tradition through to the dessert menu, The Real Greek restaurant offers a tantalisingly sweet selection, from Greek lemon cake drizzled with honey-infused syrup, to luxurious homemade baklava. Family-friendly The Real Greek London offers a fun meze and skewer selection, just for kids.

In the cultured South Bank area, The Real Greek Bankside offers a fashionable haunt. The iconic Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre sits 4 minutes’ walk away.

Good food, good music, good experience.

Every dish we had was fabulous. The flavours are amazing. Plenty of choices on the menu. On the down side, we found the tables too close together from the other diners. Very aware that the other guests could hear our conversation and vice versa.

On the whole a reasonable experience. It would have been nice to order our drinks before ordering our food but the waiter waited for us to order everything at the same time ??. The food was very tasty so no problems there. No one asked if we'd like any more drinks or if we'd like a coffee or desserts.

Great location right on the Thames, very friendly and attentive staff; the food is delicious and the menu gives calories for all dishes making is very helpful for the more health conscious.
