This nice little restaurant is the perfect after beach place. Serves the best frosted beer and good, uncomplicated food. Like many Paros restaurants, they have all kinds of food from Greek to Thai, but it's the Mexican dishes that are worth the trip (nice to eat something else that Greek every once in a while during your stay).

We like Mexican food and we went for breakfast. They have different morning dishes than other restaurants. More like a Mexican restaurant, we tried all 4 types of breakfast and they were not tasty at all. The waiter was not polite at all, instead of an orange juice, we had one that was expired and tasted really bad. He looked... More

Have been visiting Paros for quite a few years and walked past this restaurant many times, decided last year to give it a go after reading reports on this site. What can I say, simply fantastic, food, service and view well worth the money. Our favourite dish was the Thai sweet and sour king prawns, even better than Thailand, and... More

If you want something different here's the place. I would describe it as healthy Medican fare. Great staff and atmosphere. It's located outside of the hussle and bussle so it's a nice walk after dinner on your way down to the bars and clubs.

Cactus is really good alternative to all the typical Greek places along the front, it's well worth the walk. The food is really tasty, fresh and the service is friendly.

Cactus was truly the highlight of our time in Paros. Once we discovered Cactus, we were there every single night until we left. We were lucky enough to chat to the lovely owner Vanessa and experience not only amazing service by herself and the staff but delicious food and cocktails! Although we were sad to leave Paros and this little... More

Great atmosphere and great food here. Staff are very welcoming and chatty whether you are there for drinks or food. We did both. They also helped with advice on where to go and helped us to organise a hire car. Guacamole salad and the nachos went down very well with a couple of cold beers. Definitely pay a visit even... More

The English owner (?) Was really nice guy and free for a chat while we drunk or cocktails. The drinks have real fruit taste awesome and are some of the only cocktails about that actually have alcohol in them (I noticed many places on the islands sell cheap cocktails but add a very poor amount of alcohol) The menu was...
