Very caring staff catererd impeccably for a group with special needs, who others would have found challenging purely due to their inexperienceof such a group. Very impressed with their curtesy and management of the event.

“Best in Plymouth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

For steak and fish you will not get a finer restaurant in Plymouth, service is fantastic and the creme brulee can not be beaten. As for the waitress......in the five years I have be going there..I have never seen one? Which does bring into question the review below!

“Lanterns - best Steak and Meze in Plymouth without a doubt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

We have been going here for years and have never, ever had a problem. The waiters are quiet and unobtrusive and to say they were swearing in another review just can't have been right. (But then you read the reviewers comments on the Zeus restaurant a few doors away and this would probably go some way to explain it). Children are allowed there but what is wrong with that? Families are always made to feel welcome. The steaks are excellent and the Meze just cannot be faulted. Try for yourself but listen to the loads of positive reviews rather than the one negative.

“Lovely!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

Amazingly tasty food & good service.

It's a average looking restaurant with lovely food & friendly efficient service. Everything I've tried is delicious & the service is quiet.

I've tried the meze which was outstanding, & more than enough for two!

This is a good value, centrally located restaurant that I would highly recommend!
