I travel as much as possible at home and abroad. I'm always ready for new experiences

The Real Greek Restaurant has many locations throughout London, but perhaps its most scenic location is on the South Bank of the Thames just off the Queen's Walk. The restaurant offers a wide range of traditional Mediterranean dishes and its convenient location near a number of London's landmarks makes it a favourite of both locals and visitors.

The menu offers traditional items, such as souvlaki, Greek salads and flatbread with dipping sauces. The meze, similar to Spanish tapas, are perfect for sharing with friends and provide the best opportunity to sample Greek food. I usually share five or more of the hot and cold meze selections; although they're small, they provide a large meal. For dessert, there are traditional favourites, such as baklava and Greek Yoghurt with walnuts, as well as chocolate cake and ice creams.
The restaurant also provides a children's menu and offers takeaway service. They are available for party functions.
The Real Greek is on the South Bank of the Thames not far from Southwark Cathedral and is easily found by walking along the Queen's Walk. Its central location in the midst of many famous landmarks (Westminster, Tower Bridge, Globe Theatre) makes it a convenient stop after a day of touring the city.
The address is:
Riverside House 2A Southwark Bridge Road London
It is accessible via the District or Circle lines on the underground.
The restaurant is open from Monday to Saturday from 11:30am to 11:00pm and Sunday from 11:30am to 10:30pm. Reservations are normally not necessary, except for large parties.
