Went here with a group of friends from work (group of 7). I have been before but they had not. I again loved it, as did all of them. We had the Meze for 7 people and they were more than happy to swap one of the dips out for us no problem. The waitresses were great they even did... More

We went to the Parthenon with my Daughter and Son in Law and their blended family of 6 children! The relaxed atmosphere and scrumptious food kept them all happily occupied. Nice touches such as crayons and colouring pads proved a hit as did the kid friendly manner of the staff. We had lived in Cyprus for a number of years... More

My 13 yr old daughters choice for birthday tea. A quiet, cosy welcoming restaurant. Delicious food and great prices. No rush to bring mains after starters. Throughout you are left to take your time and enjoy your meal. Not to say the service is slow, it is at your pace, not theirs. Good selection of wines and beers and really... More

Our favourite place for Greek cuisine, especially the mere. Lovely clean, bright relaxed atmosphere, you can almost imagine you're eating out on holiday. Staff are always friendly and welcoming and couldn't be more helpful. We nearly always opt for the meze as there is an amazing variety of tastes to tickle the palate and more than enough to satisfy even... More

The food is fine, but the main reason as to why i will not return is the service! 30 minutes just to be served drinks and then another 30 minutes to take our orders is far too long and it wasn't even busy! Seems like the waiters would rather converse with each other than serve. Also the cutlery and plates... More

What a lovely surprise and a great find this was. We visited with a large party for a Birthday meal. We were met at the door with a warm welcome which was a nice touch, although I must admit, I did have my doubts on arrival at the appearance of the restaurant. How wrong can you be! The service and... More

Just come back after having an amazing meal at The Parthenon. It smells like Greece as soon as you enter the front door , Its like being Transported to your favourite Greek Island. Its small inside but perfectly formed and has all the hallmarks of a typical Taverna, The food looked deliciously authentic from what we saw coming out of... More

We often go as a family and share lots of starters. Portions are generous, tasty and the staff always welcoming and helpful.
