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

Drinks were fantastic and reasonably priced. My sangria was amazing, the staff was nice and cheerful. We were considering eating food there the next night, but it was overpriced compared to other places in the town.

My friend and I loved our experience at cactus! We were not exactly looking for Mexican food in Paros but came across this place and decided to give it a try. It turned out to have amazing guacamole, salsa and a vegetarian quesadilla to share. Most importantly - the staff here is incredibly friendly and attentive. The owner Vanessa told... More

My partner and I visited this restaurant for dinner yesterday. Before ordering,my partner asked was it still happy hour and the waitress replied "we are always happy here". Presuming that it was still happy hour prices, we ordered two cocktails and food. When we had completed our order, the waitress jeered and said "happy hour ended at 7 o clock"... More

Second year in a row we come for a couple of days in Paros and there was no way we would not go to eat again at Cactus restaurant. The food is amazing, it makes you want to order a double portion because it's so good! The owner Vanessa is very friendly and welcoming, you just want to go back... More

Dropped in with my partner for a late drink early in June 2016. Beer and sparkling water priced higher than Irish prices. Desserts even more expensive. Owner chatty but only in a complaining way, because business is not as prosperous as it once was. No Surprise! Not recommended.

I loved that place! Is simple and with an amazing service! You may relax and have a cocktail, looking at sea and eating some mexican treats. Prices are normal so don't worry (4-15€).

We ate at Cactus 3 times over a week's stay in Parikia and we really loved the food, cocktails, icy cold beers and the wonderful people running the restaurant! Can't wait until we can come back again. Thank you all.

Thank Michele B
