From the moment my Mum and I walked into the restaurant, there was a fairly horrible smell. Everywhere you looked, you would be able to see dirt. We thought we would try and over look this and give the restaurant a chance. We were shown to our table and were handed the most filthiest grease stained, sticky menus. When our... More

We had travelled to Plymouth for a bit of "Back to School" shopping and wanted to get a good lunch without paying a lot and without having to have "fast food". Having tried the 3 course deals in Plymouth before, this was what we were looking for. Lanterns was the first of these types of cafes that we came to... More

We visit this restaurant quite often in the last three years. The food is always very good and the staff very attentive and friendly. This evening the food was the best we have had here. Do try the kleftikon for a more greek/ cypriot experience that never fails. The kebabs (not your usual kind, clean and properly cooked meat) and... More

I dropped in to this restaurant for a light lunch. The service was quick, the food excellent value and exactly what I wanted. I was made to feel very welcome, and treated as if I was a regular patron. It is difficult to comment on the main menu as I only tried a simple meal, but it looks promising with... More

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.
