Found the restaurant at Tripadvisor so I came here on my first night in Parikia on Paros. It is tucked away in a little alley in the city centre close to the port, so try to find it! The guys were so very nice and the food is really good. It's nice to have some good and different to choose... More

We read the reviews and came in search of the Happy Cows and we were not disappointed. It was a Saturday night but we ate at 8pm and had the place to ourselves, it appears to be a combination of people eating later and the tourist season hadn't really picked up. We had a starter of baked feta with tomatoes,... More

Though a bit hard to find, it makes it worthwhile! Very friendly staff/owner. And excellent food. The menu might be a bit small, but the quality is more than excellent. Together with the Little Green Rocket, these are the two restaurants you must visit and experience! Highly recommended.

We found this fantastic! Quite early with our 2yr old, we had the whole restaurant too ourselves with soft jazz music - a perfect setting and highly recommend the prawn linguini, our whole meal was delicious

We chose this restaurant to eat one night in Parikia based on other trip advisor reviews. So glad we did! We both got amazing pasta dishes and split a delicious bottle of wine based on the server's recommendation. Highly recommend!

This meal was phenomenal. The waitress, who is the chef's girlfriend, was so friendly and sweet to us. We had a bruschetta like flatbread to start and then I had a pasta with olives, tomatoes, feta - it was PHENOMENAL. My only regret was leaving my leftovers in the hotel and forgetting them on our ferry. grrrr. We met the... More

Definitely worth going to, Happy Cows was a brilliant experience, down a little alleyway in Parikia is a gem of a restaurant where the food was brilliant, even for myself who is veggie. The service was excellent, the waitress ensured we were looked after and our experience was a happy one.
