Greek Restaurants in London
1. INO Greek restaurant in Soho 4 Newburgh Street - W1F
From the team behind OPSO (and the predecessor on this site, PittaBun), a Greek grill restaurant with an outdoor terrace, live fire cooking and an all-Greek wine list.
2. Meraki Greek restaurant in Fitzrovia 80-82 Gt Titchfield St - W1W
“Imaginative Greek dishes with a twist” earn high ratings this year for this three-year-old in Fitzrovia from Arjun and Peter Waney, who seem to have imbued Hellenic cooking with the trademark glamour and excitement they brought to Japanese with Zuma and Roka. The place is “always buzzing and packed”, and reporters reckon it’s “pricey but worth it” for “the best Greek meal I’ve ever eaten”.
3. Mazi Greek restaurant in Notting Hill 12-14 Hillgate St - W8
This “wonderful, buzzy” Greek in Hillgate Village, near Notting Hill Gate, “goes from strength to strength” in its reinterpretation of the traditional taverna as a “modern neighbourhood restaurant”. The “fresh, delicious menu is perfect for sharing”, but “you need to pick wisely otherwise it’s expensive”.
4. Lemonia Greek restaurant in Primrose Hill 89 Regent’s Park Rd - NW1
“The miracle is that it doesn’t change”, say fans of this veteran Primrose Hill taverna: a “big, bustling, cheerful, noisy, Greek family-style restaurant that’s been around forever”, with particularly “warm” staff of decades’ standing, who “don’t just tolerate children, they positively welcome them.” Never exactly a foodie hotspot, “it’s time to revamp the menu…”, according to one fan, who then goes on to admit “…but I’ve been saying that since 1978!” In truth, though, the experience here is finally starting to show its age: there have always been one or two sceptics who “wonder why everyone makes such a fuss about the place”, but their number grows more numerous with each passing year.
5. Peckham Bazaar Greek restaurant in Peckham 119 Consort Rd - SE15
“All the dishes deliver bags of flavour and something different to the usual” at this “really interesting Balkan restaurant”, “well off-the-beaten-path (even by Peckham standards)”. Much is cooked on a charcoal grill so “there’s a happy smoky vibe to the place”, although it’s “always busy” and “can feel cramped”.
6. Opso Greek restaurant in Marylebone 10 Paddington St - W1
A modern take on Greek cuisine in Marylebone hailed for its “authentic food and lively atmosphere (crowded and noisy inside but good outside on a fine day)”. Other plus points include “friendly, helpful service” and “a nice selection of Greek wines” – in fact, there’s “little to complain about, except perhaps the pricing”. A more casual street-food offshoot, Pittabun, opened off Carnaby Street last year.
7. Estiatorio Milos Fish & seafood restaurant in St James's 1 Regent St - SW1
“The most beautiful fish counter ever” is the dramatic centrepiece of Costas Spiladis’s “classy” five-year-old (part of an LA, Miami, etc international group), and – with its “roomy” quarters clad in white marble sourced from mountains outside Athens – it brings a “glammed up Greek atmosphere” to the fringe of St James’s. Its fans extol “the best fish in London” and gorgeous seafood that’s “second to none”, but sceptics caution that “it’s priced so that only oligarchs can afford to eat it”, and to an extent that can seem “extortionate”. Post pandemic, they will now deliver if you live within 3 miles of St James’s.
8. Vrisaki Greek restaurant in Wood Green 73 Middleton Rd - N22
This Greek-Cypriot taverna in Bounds Green is “famous across North London for the ridiculous size of its mezze”. The food, from Andreas and Anthony Antoniou, “is reasonably tasty, service is pleasant enough and the decor plain and uninspiring” – but “all this pales into insignificance if you go very hungry!”.
9. Gem Turkish restaurant in Islington 265 Upper St - N1
“Friendly, with decent nosh” – this Turkish-Kurdish café near Angel “really is a little gem, with prices that are more than fair for the quality of the food”. The exceptional value for the locations means it “can get very crowded”.
10. The Chef’s Table by Asimakis French restaurant in Fitzrovia 34 Charlotte Street - W1T
Coming in March 2020, a chef's table experience from chef Asimakis Chaniotis and Pied à Terre restaurateur David Moore, in the space above the restaurant; there will be just eight seats in a specially designed room, access to Pied à Terre's incredible wine list and seasonal tasting menus (£165pp) inspired by Asimakis' Greek heritage and the French food he cooks at Pied à Terre.
