This is certainly a restaurant well worth a visit, situated close to the city centre of Plymouth. The food is first class and served by very efficient and friendly staff, and without question well priced giving value for money. This restaurant also offers a wide and varied menu catering for all tastes. Would certainly recommend.

The New Lanterns Restaurant was busy with around 20 customers but we were seated immediately and offered refreshments. The menu was extremely extensive with a good selection of seafood starters. I selected... More

They always make us feel so special & get the food just perfect. I strongly recommend the steaks or the traditional greek food like the Kleftico, Mousaka or Dolmades. Well done guys & thanks!
