Enjoyable atmosphere, great service (understanding of gluten allergy), fantastic food. Happy Cows was an all around dining experience and has been the best of our 10 days in the Greek Islands.

We went for dinner to this restaurant on our first night in Paros, whilst getting lost through the beautiful town centre of Parikia. The place is small and cozy, with tables on the very narrow street where it's located, alongside the restaurant. We shared the pita bread with tomato and capers topping, which was very nice, kind of a mini-pizza/bruschetta.... More

We are sailing around the Greek islands and this has been our best meal all week. The steak was brilliant and if you share it with friend alongside the prawn linguini it makes the perfect 'surf and turf' ! Angela and Lefteris were absolutely lovely hosts and really made the evening with their warmth and laughter! Highly recommend !

We visited this restaurant on our last night in Parikia, we chose 2 appetizers the Greek rolls and pita bread with feta and tomato. Can't fault either. Our mains were the tiger prawns and chicken el greco. Not a single bite was left behind. In fact we would have licked our plates if it was socially acceptable. The house wine... More

Angela and Lef are the sweetest couple. I highly recommend the tagliatelli grek and the linguine with tiger prawns. I later find out why the sauce was so rich. Lef is probably the best-trained chef on the island. Ask him about his studies. And, of course, Angela, thank you for your endless hospitality. Without a doubt, the best pasta on... More

You never know when you read reviews- firstly everyone is different, and secondly are they all true?! However I have great delight in confirming that Happy Cows is a fabulous place. Young Greeks Angela and Chef (her partner) are so lovely and friendly. The welcome from Angela was delightful and her sense of humour surprising only in it's unexpectedness -... More

I do not know where to begin when talking about Happy Cows! I had been traveling through Greece with my cousin for a week, and on the day of his 30th birthday we decided to do something special and went to the Happy Cows restaurant. We definitely could not have made a better decision! The Waitress, Angela, is the friendliest,... More

Where does one begin? Asked for red wine, got told by possibly the most irritating waitress ever, that we should have white if we were eating prawns - anyway my husband won't drink white, so he got given a glass of something that you could see through and tasted vile. He told them he couldn't drink it! She said that... More

The restaurant is located hidden in very small alley close to a lot of little boutiques. We were warmly welcomed by the waiter Angela and continued good talks over dinner. We had a rib eye steak (350 g!) and the hamburger with feta and olives (ca. 200 g!!. We both enjoyed the high amount of high quality and tender meat... More
