Review on The Real Greek

The Real Greek opened its doors in May 2014 in the royal town of Windsor, the first London outpost of this mini chain of seven restaurants. Occupying a large corner site, the light and airy restaurant is spread over two floors with views towards the castle and the River Thames. Interiors have a modern vibrant décor featuring an eclectic display of artwork on the walls, including a food portrait of Queen Elizabeth II in honour of her official birthday, created by food artist Nathan Wyburn.

Like its siblings, it deals in genuine street food: skewered souvlaki wrapped in sheaths of warm grilled bread are one of the main attractions, and the choice varies seasonally (pork from November to May, lamb, chicken and vegetables at other times of the year). Mezedes are also perennial favourites, especially at lunchtime: look for little dolmades, salt cod fritters, Feta 'from the barrel' and gigandes plaki (oven-baked Kastorian giant beans in tomato and herb sauce). Desserts are plain and simple offerings like Greek yoghurt with honey and walnuts, chocolate cake or delicate 'delights' (sweets scented with rosewater). Drink Greek beer, an ouzo-spiked cocktail or one of the down-home native wines.
