I came to Paros during a long trip to greece with my greek boyfriend. He had been to Happy Cows the year before and was dying to take me there, both for the food and the service. This lovely couple runs the place and gave us an amazing night, sitting in the middle of an alley eating our food on... More

I read some reviews about this restaurant on TripAdvisor and I decided to go there. I was specifically looking for something different, calming and single-friendly (it's a lot to ask of a restaurant but that's just me). I took my GPS with me and went looking. It took me a while and I walked past it 1 time but then... More

This place is one of my favourites in Paros! I can not resist to Linguini with Prawns, and the feta stuffed with peppers is one of must try appetizers. Angela is the best hostess. LOVE this place ❤

We had a really delicious meal here. We both got the linguine with prawns and it was all cooked perfectly with great flavours and the prawns were so fresh and yummy! The restaurant has a great atmosphere and our waitress who I assume is the owner was really nice :) very reasonably priced too. Would definitely recommend eating here!

This place is not a good restaurant at all. In my view, the person cooking in Happy Cows is not a properly trained chef; s/he does not have a good sense of food and does not know some key cooking techniques. We had four dishes: one salad, one appetizer and two main dishes. My wife asked for a chicken dish,... More

How can a restaurant that serves beef make a Cow happy? By respecting its sacrifice and cook the rib-eye to perfection I would say. This was not the case during our visit in this restaurant. Starting from the beginning, the air-condition unit was switched off and this during August in Cyclades can be disastrous. We started with a chicken salad... More

Dear Mr Panos, Happy cows feel terribly sad about your opinion for our establishment! In any case, our establishment has 5 air condiotions which 2 of those are active at all times during our opening hours, the name of our business has a history and the Cows are very happy as long as you are happy when you order them...
