Parthenon Greek Restaurant - Calgary

We have been there several times but it has been a while.
We went there last night for my birthday and were not diappointed.
My wife and I had the Greek platter special at 2 for $48.95. We started off with a Greek salad that both my daughter and Mother-In-Law wanted to share. It was big enough. We had two lamb chops, 4 roasted potatoes and 2 grilled chicken breasts that were to die for! It also included a large order of rice. As we spent last November in Greece we ranked the meal and presentation as authentic. Our daughter had a Lobster tail with rice, roast potatoes and a AAA steak. She was impressed and let me sample it. I was also impressed. This meal was $22.95.
My Mother-In-Law had the Salmon special at $22.95. It was well presented and looked and tasted excellent. It also had roast potatoes (she said her's were not boiled long enough but ours were) and rice with a side of vegetables.
We had a Baklava for desert and it was disappointing. There was a generous amount of cinammon and it tasted good but when you have been to a local bakery in Greece it paled.
We had an elderly gentleman of Greek heritage (I am sure) and while he was slow it had a nice even pace and we didn't feel rushed which was fine by me. He kept our waters topped up and that ranks high with me.The bill came to $105. plus tip.
We vowed we would go again but not wait so long to return.

    One thing- this isn't a CH policy or anything but it's always helpful to include addresses, or at least what part of town the resto is in, with reviews.

      Thanks for the wishes!
      You are right! The Parthenon is at Heritage and Bonaventure in Calgary on the SE Corner.
