Perfect place to unwind after a hard day in the sun

As a mexican food fan I must say this was one of the best Mexicans I have ever eaten. The service was great too, the front of house (run by Vanessa) was friendly efficient and helpful just all in all great. We will definitely go back.

I'd read about Cactus on Trip Advisor when planning our trip to Paros and was looking forward to trying their Mexican food. I'm happy to say we weren't disappointed and enjoyed our meal overlooking the harbour in Parikia. My partner had the chilli enchiladas and I had the chicken fajitas--both good portions and nicely done. The restaurant also advertises Thai... More

Had the Enchiladas with spicy beef filling. Considering that I was in Greece it was really decent. The chef also offer Thai food. Have to try that next time. Service is really friendly and attentive. We also got some water melon for free at the end of our meal. Nice!

When we decided to try this restaurant I was really afraid of not getting "Good Mexican food" in a small taverna in a Greek island. After finishing our dinner we were very happy with our choice!!! It was great! Big tasty dishes and very friendly staff. Will try it again for sure when we will be back next summer!

Our chicken fajitas were excellent, but the portions were too small. The atmosphere was very nice and different. The location is great. The service was very good.

I must say this was one of the best Mexicans I have ever had...the service was great, the owner Vanessa was sweet and helpful, just all in all great and if we had more time on Paros I would definitely go back. Simply amazing...please ignore any... More

Helen and I visited this restaurant quite hungover on our second day in Paros. We were served by a man from Manchester who was friendly and gave us great service. He gave us bread with a tomato, basil and parmesan paste to start. I ordered the beef burrito and Helen had chicken fajitas. My burrito was tasty and had the... More
