Good food on all three courses. Some excellent bits. Presentation could be improved at times. Nice friendly staff. restaurant is a bit noisy in places due to layout. Would go again.

Booked a table for 2 at the last minute and received a warm welcome from the staff. Had the meze which had a good selection of food. Portion size a bit smaller than other greek restaurants visited before but all selections were tasty. Can recommend the desserts as well. Watching the guys working hard in the kitchen was fun too....

This was our first visit to this restaurant . We found the food excellent(Lamb Kleftiko was to die for) with very generous portions and the service was very good. However we found it very unusual for a restaurant not to serve any draught beers or lagers, making drinking very expensive.Sadly,it is only a small restaurant and can feel a little... More

Had a lovely meal at the Parthenon for my birthday. Excellent value but very filling so ensure you've got a good appetite. The taverna gives you a genuine feeling of eating in one in Greece. Great value and at a reasonable price,

If you're looking for big portions and a cosy atmosphere then the Parthenon is the place to eat. The staff are attentive and very welcoming, without imposing on your dinning experience, and the food is never a disappointment! The only problem you'll encounter is deciding what to try, (I recommend grabbing a group of friends so you can try lots... More

Went here with a couple of friends after watching England batter Sri Lanka at cricket. A great choice of starters followed by the biggest main course I have had in years. It was like the start of the original Star Wars when they brought out my chicken kebab main course, the chicken just kept on coming!!! Awesome!!!
