Hubby and I shared had some of the best fajitas ever here. The chicken strips had a wood-fired grilled flavour, the tomato salsa was fresh tasting and the guacamole, classic but amazing. We dropped in for drinks and snacks a couple times during our stay in Parikia and always felt welcomed. Great view of the sea and beaches across the... More

It was the end of the season and they were closing up the following week. Food was lovely, host was lovely and the margaritas were excellent!! Beautiful spot for dinner after craving Mexican food!

After being in Paros for 2 weeks, it was refreshing to have a change in cuisine. Vanessa is a sweetheart and gave us some of the best service and conversation we've had in Greece. The food was also yummy, my boyfriend and I both finished our plates. The spicy refried beans are tasty. Margaritas are made with fresh fruit, not... More

Not even close to authentic Mexican food. Please don't advertise it as such. Everything is very overpriced. You order Cheese dip (tasted like velveeta) and it comes with 5 chips. You have to pay for each additional bowl of chips. Our first bowl was all crumbs, like the bottom of a chip bag. Very disappointing.

While in Paros I will have to admit we were let down by the meal options at many of the restaurants. We came across Cactus Restaurant as it was next to our hotel. We decided to give this Mexican Restaurant a try since the other seafood and taverna options just didnt have the quality food we were looking for, and... More

My friend and I stopped here for a drink. We both rated this as the best mojito that we have ever had!! It was unbelievably cheap too! The waitress was very sweet and told us the reason our drinks were so good was because of the fresh herbs they use to make the drinks and apologised and said that was... More

Mu husband and I usually only eat the local cuisine when we travel. But we were just looking for some cheap drinks near our hotel and this fit the bill. We ordered the Nachos con queso and a pitcher of sangria. I could have went to Walmart bought a bag of tortilla chips and some queso and it would have... More

The best Mexican/ Thai food! The variety on the menu is excellent. The presentation and flavours of the food were amazing as well as the cocktails made from fresh ingredients. Staff were friendly, efficient and really added to the experience. Would defiantly recommend and go back.

We were a little taken aback at first by the menu. As they offered Mexican, Thai and Greek food, we were unsure of how good the quality of the food would be. We were very very pleasantly surprised though! Everything with very tasty, large portion sizes, and all of their cocktails were made with fresh ingredients which is always a... More
