We loved Cactus Restaurant, the atmosphere, food and especially the service! Vanessa was warm and inviting and the cocktails were delicious. Will definitely be going back for more nachos and strawberry daiquiris'. It's a must go to whilst in Paros!

I visited the Cactus Restaurant by myself, but the owners were very welcoming and even invited me to sit with them for a bit and have a drink. When I ordered my meal, I let them know I was a vegan and they were very helpful in showing me what my best option was. I'm glad I trusted in that... More

We where there on the night of a 30 min storm, staff looked after us very well and we still ate outside. The food was great and the service exceptional.

I generally always take photos of food but didn't while at Cactus. I was so lost in the wonderful flavors of the Mexican cuisine, the scenery and the hospitality of the staff.

Myself and six friends recently were strolling along the strip of Paros and came across this restaurant that were advertising 'mojitos and strawberry daquiris' so we couldn't say no! Our waitress Vanessa was so friendly and very welcoming. We each had two cocktails and I have to say they were the best cocktails we had ever tasted!!! And they were... More

Vanessa was very nice and suggested us several dishes (we are vegetarian but there is a good choice of vegetarian options...thank you!), which were really perfect! She also offered us some ice-cream as desserts and put on some romantic music especially for us (we were there for our honeymoon!). Great experience! Thank you!
