Restaurant Review - The Real Greek - Covent Garden

This week I was able to attend a restaurant in London called The Real Greek (Covent Garden branch) to do a review.

I used to live in North London where there are strong Greek and GreekCypriot communities which means there is a plethora of Greek restaurants spoiling local residents but let me tell you now The Real Greek is up there with the best!

There are 5 other branches in London and each one individual.  The Covent Garden branch is small and compact but full of atmosphere with helpful and welcoming staff.  I attended with my friend Val.

Victoria the Manageress showed us the menus and explained some of the specials and meze but both Val and I agreed that we would rather leave it up to Victoria to bring us what she thought best.  Well that was one of the best choice I have made lately!

It all started quite simply with olives and a dipping plate of bread, Greek olive oil and a Dukkah (a spicy mix of ground, dry roasted nuts and seeds). This and a bottle of dry white wine (Silenus 'Beta' White (Vilana) was a good start to the meal!

And then the food started arriving and more and more plates of food kept appearing on our table!


And then when you think you are going to die of fullness they bring you more food!!

Finished off with a cup of coffee and a 'doggy bag' of the plates we couldn't finish and a perfect ending to a great meal.

Many thanks to Victoria and The Real Greek for treating us like dining royalty.  Val is already checking her diary for a return date with her husband!

  1. There is noticeably a bundle to know about this. I assume you made certain nice points in features also.
