Mates love it & the reviews were good so bought an online voucher. Helpfully easy phone booking at short notice. Living social voucher for two £18. Starters enjoyed roasted pepper & feta cheese on pitta bread. Husband loved the roasted aubergine and feta cheese. We only had iced water to drink and the jug was replaced when empty. Tables were too close together and a little cramped. The place was busy for an early Thursday evening which was a good sign. Open door so we could hear busy London road traffic noise. Not to keen on the Greek music. Service was nice & friendly.
Main meal, we both had chicken served with potatoes and vegetables. Mine was in a creamy white wine sauce which was delicious but a bit sickly. Husbands was with spinach, feta & tomato garlic sauce which he thought was fabulous.
The restaurant needs updating with a total refurbishment feels old fashioned and shabby.
Fresh coffee was not hot but the glass of ouzo warmed us up a treat.
All in all we really enjoyed the food and would return if another online voucher comes available. 8/10

I am a semi regular visitor to this restaurant. The food is always, superb. It's tasty, fresh and always hot. It is good value if you book in advance and get the "special" This consists of any starter and main course from the menu, ice cream, coffee and a shot of ouzo, all for just £25 per couple!

It can get very busy, but the serving staff are efficient and friendly.

Visited here again 22nd July, 6th time, used a Groupon voucher, Excellent meal, yes it could do with a make over in the Restaurant , but a friendly atmosphere all the same, If you want your meal on the table straight away, then find else ware this is not the Greek way of dinning, Slow and Relaxed take your time, you will enjoy it a lot more, every thing cooked to order, nice selection on the Menu, but try the Specials Board for a real experience, for a good accompanying wine try the Greek wines they are excellent, Will definitely be visiting again as a couple or with friends !!

Went on a Monday, lamb was chewy as old leather and meatballs could have bounced in the floor had I dropped one.

Kids enjoyed there pasta, but that's pretty simple. Constantly playing same music, have they got only one CD? Service was OK. I don't think we ever would go back or recommend to a friends.

My wife and I visited Parthenonas last night for the first time. We went because we had been bought a Groupon voucher as a gift. Sometimes, when presenting a Groupon voucher, you can find yourself treated as a second class diner and we were pleased to discover that here, this was not the case. We had an early evening booking on a Thursday night and so the restaurant was very quiet. We were greeted and seated, by a man whom we presumed to be the owner. He was very pleasant and attentive throughout. A nice touch was that he quickly learned my wife's name and this made the service feel much more personal. The surroundings couldn't be described as plush, vinyl tablecloths for example, yet the best meals we have enjoyed whilst out in Greece were usually in restaurants with this standard of decor. The food we ordered was freshly cooked, well prepared and presented. The time between courses was just right. Long enough for a chat and the meal to feel leisurely rather than rushed. We felt that our meal was good value for money and we would definitely eat there again.
