Top 10 London Greek Restaurants for Valentine’s Day

Top 10 London Greek Restaurants for Valentine’s Day

Whether you love it or loathe it, Valentine’s Day is all around us right now. Personally I’m a hopeless romantic and believe that any excuse to ‘spread the love’ can only be a good thing. Right?

So with that in mind let’s focus on the positives of February 14th. For one, there are lots of lovely chocolates in the shop. And not just chocolates – delicious ready-made meals for two are available which is also great if you are single and not ready to mingle as you get extra!

If you aren’t staying indoors getting cosy by the fire with your chocolates, and want to treat that special person in your life to something…well…special, then perhaps I can be of assistance. I have put together a list of top Greek restaurants in London (and surrounding areas) that will make your loved one ‘opa into your arms (see what I did there…?!).

Now I haven’t actually been to all of the places listed below they are simply ones I’ve heard of, am in touch with via social media, or plan on visiting. So please do feel free to add any recommendations in the comments box.

    There are so many nice Greek restaurants in London, well done on narrowing it down! I often pass it on my tours and such a nice location too. Always wanted to try The Stage Door in Wimbledon though, I hear great things about it 🙂
