The food is really reasonably priced, and is served quickly. It is very tasty and there is a good choice on the menu. Lunch times are particularly cheap for what you receive.

I popped in for lunch with friends today after liking the look of the restaurant from outside and the lunch special that was advertised. Great value for money as the food was delicious and plentiful. The desserts are stunning and catch the eye as you walk past the cabinet. The service was absolutely fantastic. The lady who seated and served... More

We had a family birthday gathering for over 20 people including children last night and we experienced wonderful friendly service from all of the staff. The food was superb - couldn't eat it all! The children's portions were excellent value too. Thank you very much New Lanterns - we will definitely be back.

I go to this restaurant every time I am in Plymouth and have never been disappointed. It is spotlessly clean, the staff are very helpful and the food is first class. Very much to be recommended.

Went for lunch as always had enjoyed eating at this restaurant, unfortunately meal was not up to usual standard. The meal was very tasteless and large thick stalks in the cabbage. We later found out it had a hygiene rating of 3 we won't be going back.

Went for the mini Meze on the early dinner special available until 7:30. The portions were very large and lots of variety in the dishes. Food plentiful and full of flavour. The only thing I would say is that the chips could be left off the Meze to make it a little more authentic. With the portion sizes of all... More

If you want real quality food at great prices then Lanterns is the place to go. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly welcoming staff who make it their priority to make your visit there enjoyable and relaxed. The food they offer suits every pallette whether u fancy a classic roast to more specialised dishes. I would strongly recommend... More

This modest looking restaurant in Cornwall Street, Plymouth is incredibly good value for money. It has an extensive menu which ought to meet everyone's tastes. Lovers of Greek cuisine will be especially happy. Portions and quality are excellent and the bill will not break the bank. At lunchtime there is a special menu with three courses priced at £9.50 guaranteed... More
