“Fantastic people, service and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

We went to Parthenon whilst on holiday in mid October. We were welcomed into the restaurant with great first impressions and this continues right throughout dinner. Leftari and the team made a real effort to make sure we enjoyed our night and the chef made wonderful and very tasty food. Leftari and Timon were wonderful and even had a go at our dialect. We returned for another night with a huge party of 36 and still they did a wonderful job and managed spectacularly with us. They even went to the bother of getting 2 Greek dancers and plates for us all do dance and watch. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you want great food with great friendly workers and a fantastic atmosphere throughout your dinner.

“Top class service with top class food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

The Parthenon restaurant is superb Lefteri and all the staff are very friendly and make you feel at home the service and the food is excellent even the chef comes out of the kitchen to ask you if your happy with your food and enjoying the Greek dishes he has prepared for you. Its a very relaxing atmosphere especially with the charm of Lefteri I cant fault it I recommend the Parthenon to anybody go try it you wont be disappointed.

“Fantastic food, great PR man”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

Just ate in here tonight and up there with our favourite restaurants. I really don't know why we've never ate here before. We are currently on day 8/14 of our third Kalamaki holiday.

I was really surprised the PR lad recognised me from May this year and we hadn't even eaten in here before. Shamefully, I couldn't remember him but he is a lovely person to chat to. Bless his heart, he made me a cute rose from a serviette with piece of something from a bush to give it an aroma inside :-)

I had the honey glazed lamb (from seeing the recommendations here) & luckily enough was on a special too. Wow, it was beautiful! Very filling & hot too. The mister had moussaka, which I tried a bit of, & yum yum! Plus it came with chips & salad on a big plate. Very generously sized!

Service was a bit "quiet" but no gripes at all :-) We also got a free glass of wine each. Prices are a bit more expensive than other places BUT definately worth it for the portion sizes
