Lanterns has been serving Plymothians for years and has recently had a complete refit making it much brighter and more modern inside. Plymouth is not short of Greek restaurants particularly around this area however the food here is delicious, home made and well cooked they are happy to cater for any fussy eaters and particular tastes and the portions are...

Having lost interest in posting reviews on Trip Advisor after so many of our earlier reviews disappeared during the site's many revamps - we have to thank NEW Lanterns for reinvigorating our interest! Credit where credit is due! Having eaten here many times in the past, we always found the quality of the food to be outstanding, the service friendly... More

We will be back wish we lived nearer. Such a lovely atmosphere and friendly place to eat. Five different steak meals cooked to perfection. Nothing left on our plates! Totally recommend The Lantern to everyone.

I don't visit Plymouth very often but come here to eat as it is so reasonable and the food is good. Glad to see it has been updated at last, the interior was very dated and tired and it should have been done long ago. Very disappointed that the steak pie had all gone, even though I was early for...

The food is still fantastic too. We shared some starters which were presented beautifully & tasted just as good. I had the Porterhouse steak which was probably the best I've ever had. We all loved the greek salad. The Kleftico is great here too & looks like art on a plate. The staff were very warm, welcoming & attentive. Our... More

Second visit was better although the waitress seemed to hover over us . And the third is why this review has been done. After deciding... More
