I visit this restaurant with my family every time I visit plymouth. I can honestly say that the Beef Roast was out of this world and The entire family thoroughly enjoyed their meals. I have never had a bad word to say about Lanterns, it is excellent value and the wait for a table is only a few minutes due... More

We were directed to Lanterns after failing to get into Positano. The idea was to have a good evening meal before catching a late ferry, so we didn't have much time to search out alternatives. The staff were friendly and attentive, but the food was no more than average I'm afraid. A tomato and feta salad was good, but doesn't... More

It was a real pleasure reading your review, and I couldn't agree more. In fact I was there today with my partner, and once again I enjoyed the experience, for the food, the level of service AND the friendliness of the staff. Like you, I hope this restaurant remains in the family for many generations.

Been coming here for over 30 years so know what I'm talking about . The menu is varied the food consistently good Ive eaten in many more up market places but for friendly service, good food and consistency of quality Lanterns takes some beating. True it could do with updating but that doesn't detract from the experience . I'm saddened... More

I have been to that restaurant a number of times and was always very satisfied with both the food AND the service. I do feel that your expectations are ridiculous for the simple reason that WHO takes a 13 week old baby into a restaurant, without due regards to other customers and staff?? I for one, would not appreciate sitting... More

Came here for lunch on my last visit to Plymouth and had no hesitation in returning. There is plenty of choice on the menu and the prices are really excellent value. Staff are very friendly and attentive. From listening to other diners, there are plenty of regular customers here Will definitely come back!
