Parthenon Restaurant

Restaurants in Kalamaki

Me and my son have been going to Parthenon Restaurant for 3 years now. Lefteri, Tom, Cristos (and new waiter Alex) as great as ever. We have suggested to so many people whilst on holiday to eat there and said you will come back (which they have done). The guys are great,they make you feel so special and the food is always excellent. My husband came with me and my son this year and said I can understand why you come here every night, the food is great. I recommend the Lamb Kleftico and Country Lamb. Will be back next year. WELL DONE TO YOU ALL YOU WORK SO HARD. Shirley, Geoff and Chris

We ate in this fab restaurant 5 times while we were there.  We had slouvaki, mousakka, lamb chops, kleftico, grilled chicken, chicken fillet sandwich and all were excellent.  My youngest daughter always had a kids meal which was always a good size portion.  It was definately the best value for money place that we ate at and nothing was too much trouble for the lovely waiters who all spoke very good english.  Lefteri deserves a special mention as he is such a lovely bloke who made tulips for my daughters out of serviettes on several occasions.  Tim was also really nice too.  We have already booked for next year and will certainly be eating in our favourite place again.  Cannot recommend highly enough. See you in August 2012.

On eating out we found Pathenon Restaurant was above the rest in terms of quality and service, they were very welcoming with Lefteri very welcoming. The food was really tasty and good value for money. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Kalamaki. in the near future.

Ate here once and had amazing food in here.  Sam on the door always greeted the two of us with hugs and kisses.  The others looked after us in there too.  If anyone is going soon can you please write back as i have a massive favour to ask you. 

The only upset we had was that i wanted terayki chicken but they had run out of sauce so had to have a curry which was yummy.
i do miss Kalamaki already and ive been home 4 days xx

Absolutely loved it, all the staff were really friendly and always made sure you were happy  The food was really tasty and there was a lot of choice on the menu, including a variety of things for vegetarians, everything was reasonably priced. The best restaurant we went to. Missing it already.Lucy, Joey, Sal and Rob

Parthenon is absolutely brilliant and the staff are extremely friendly.  My kids absolutely adored Rachael and so did my husband and I.  She was one in a million and so very attentive.  We never had a problem with the food at all - absolutely superb!  Certainly one to be visited.

Tony H          10/10

Just simply one of the the best restaurant in the Greece islands,  never mind Zante. Why? - because the food is as good as anywhere but the hospitality is second to none. We have been all over the islands and love them and this place is up there with the best. If in Zante - do not miss out this fabulous place  Achilles, Rachael and Lefteri  will look after you. A lovely experience!

Great restaurant! The only one our children wanted to go to and really liked. The staff was great, nice and always help full and they played with the children every time we came,. Food was great to, the only food that we really enjoyed and was satisfied with after eating. If you really want to eat a good greek meal with fun and a nice greek atmosphere....Parthenon is the restaurant for U! Lefteri our children really loved U and the other staff. Hope we'll meet again Regards from Botis Family.!!./rte/smile.gif
