THE REAL Greek brings an authentic taste of Greece to the beaches of Bournemouth.

It's first restaurant is now open at the BH2 complex in Bournemouth, bringing authentic Greek cuisine to the south coast.

The new spacious eatery, designed to recreate the atmospheric experience of eating in Greece, will be The Real Greek’s biggest restaurant yet, seating an impressive 200 people across two floors. The Real Greek Bournemouth has a Taratsa (outdoor terrace) on the first floor, serving The Real Greek menu and drinks.

The new ‘Taratsa’ will allow diners to spend time eating and drinking amongst friends and family in the sunshine, in a relaxed, less formal environment – Greek Island style – whilst overlooking the park directly outside.

Also exclusive to The Real Greek Bournemouth will be ‘The Real Greek Picnic Bag’, offering beach and park goers a selection of three delicious dips, an assortment of crudités and a choice of either a free bottle of Prosecco, x4 Mythos Beers or a bottle of Red, White or Rose wine.

For £20 per Picnic Bag, the stylish reusable canvas bags will be pre-packed, perfect for a relaxing and enjoyable trip to the park or beach with friends.

Dishes are created using premium, wholesome ingredients from Greece and Cyprus whenever possible, and developed alongside Tonia Buxton, Greek Cypriot and face of Greek food in the UK.

Christos Karatzenis, Head of Operations at The Real Greek said: “We’re really excited to be offering a taste of authentic Greek cuisine in Bournemouth. Being so close to the sea, we have adapted our offering of The Real Greek’s first Picnic Bag, for people to grab on their way to the beach, or for the park directly in front of us. The Real Greek Bournemouth will also feature the Taratsa, which offers diners a relaxed, outdoor space to enjoy during the warmer months.”

The Real Greek Bournemouth is offering students 25% discount off food from the Main Menu all year round.
