Alexander The Great Serving a variety of popular Greek dishes often with a musical serenade in the background, Alexander the Great is a tavern-style restaurant in Camden famed for its décor and meze platters. In the spirit of the Macedonian warrior after whom the restaurant is named, Alexander the Great prides itself on combine traditional Greek hospitality and an all-conquering food and drink menu comprising fine cuisine and delicious local wines. Prices are low and belly dancers often put in an appearance. With such hearty hospitality and generous portions, it's no surprise that this is popular with the locals - and while this is by no means the best Greek restaurant in the capital, it's probably better than many of the numerous Greek establishments in the area.
