The Real Greek

Restaurants, Greek South Bank

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This large Bankside restaurant is one of this chain's nine outposts - eight of which are in London. This one's right next door to the Globe theatre, so it does well with the tourist pound. Outdoor seating fills up quickly on sunny days.

The focus is on Greek rather than Greek-Cypriot dishes, with the various sharing menus named after the nation’s provinces. Rather than typical Cypriot pitta bread, you’re offered the far superior fluffy flatbread of the mother country. It's mostly mezze, so expect dishes such as tzatziki, taramasalata, dolmades, lamb kofte and beef meatballs with a feta dip. 

Greece dominates the wine list too, though Italy and France bulk things out a little. Beer comes by way of Kronenbourg, Moretti and Mythos.
