The Real Greek Bristol

Bristol's Newest Greek Eatery

. February 07, 2018 .
Greece is one of my favorite places on earth to visit during summer time. The sun is always shining, the people are always so warm and welcoming and the food is always phenomenal. I'm a real grazer when it comes to eating, especially socially, so meze-type dishes have always been a firm favourite of mine and I'm a bit of a hummous addict.

Whilst I was living in Shepherds Bush during my university year in London I frequented The Real Greek's Westfield restaurant on the regular. My friends and I would love hiding out there after lectures and devouring some shared Greek dishes from the tasty menu – it became a real treasured spot for me. 

So, I'm sure you can imagine my delight when The Real Greek announced it would be opening a new location in my hometown of Bristol! I was fortunate enough to be invited along to the media launch night so I thought I'd share with you a few favourite moments from the night and what you can expect should my Bristol folks/visitors want to visit themselves, and I really recommend you do!

Designed to recreate the relaxed Mediterranean experience of eating in Greece, the cafefully curated menu includes of a selection of hot and cold mezes, grilled skewers, marinated meats and souvlaki wraps – of course, accompanied by a selection of hand-sourced wines and beers from Greece (the Cavino Inos White was my fave). There's also loads of veggie and even vegan options if you're a plant-based person like me, and I have it on good word from the chef they're in the midst of creating a full vegan menu too!

On the night I also got to meet The Real Greek's lovely (and frankly flipping gorgeous) ambassador Tonia Buxton whom I helped host a personalised hummous making station with – which was a tad messy but loads of fun and it was great to create a bespoke dip with all your favourite flavours (heavy on the cumin and lemon for me!). 

The Bristol restaurant itself has a wonderful Mediterranean vibe to it and you feel instantly welcome the second you set foot in the door and its location is in the heart of Cabot Circus right next to the Cinema de Lux so a great spot to hit after shopping or pre/post movie. Plus, Every Thursday & Friday night form 7:30pm, Andreas from Thessaloniki and Micheal from Cyprus play traditional Greek bouzouki and guitar at the Bristol spot – just the ticket to make you fele like you're Greek summer holiday is just around the corner! Visit The Real Greek's website here for more info and t book your table.
