About The Real Greek Souvlaki & Bar - Bankside

Like its lively sibling in Hoxton, The Real Greek Souvlaki & Bar Bankside is a stylish, modern, down-to-earth venue with an open plan kitchen and bar, welcoming service, and a well-deserved reputation as a great place to eat, drink and be merry. Except here you have great views of the Thames and the City too. Sit ’riverside’ by chosing a seat by the massive windows. The menu lists lots of really tasty, remind-you-of-holidays-to-Greece ’street’ dishes to nibble at and share - mezedes, souvlaki, and deliciously fresh bread and Greek pastries. Very handy for a good meal before or after a trip to the nearby Globe Theatre or Tate Modern.
