We were mad to feel very welcome and enjoyed the food very much. The restaurant is reasonably priced and in a great location by the sea of Paros with lots of variety including non mexican dishes.

If you're fed up of constantly eating Greek food on your holiday or like me you just love Mexican food, this is the place to go! The portions are huge and so tasty. We had chilli nachos to start and then spicy beef enchilladas and burritos for mains! With 6euro cocktails and 1.50euro beers at happy hour you cannot go... More

After many weeks of Greek cuisine I opted for the advertised Thai Curry that tasted nothing like a Thai curry but maybe, just maybe a Morocan dish? Sangria was also very average.Stick to the Greek

Having read that this restaurant was quite high up on trip advisor we decided to try it. The waiter was a English man who was really lovely. However because it was just him and another man they kept forgetting things, so it took us about 20 minutes just to get our wine as they kept forgetting to bring it. Now... More

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). Hang around... More

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.
