I first came to Papas a week after they had opened. Although I've been less in the last couple of years, the food and service remain very high quality. So chose it this week as a wedding anniversary outing and wasn't disappointed. The staff are...brilliant and helpful, pleasant to talk with and knowledgeable, making good recommendations as to choices and dishes. The food was excellent and the wine a good price, which is important these days as some places charge through the roof. The only downside was a table of four men who don't understand normal behaviour. They were loud and boorish which marred an otherwise pleasant evening.More

The best flavourful meal we have had in a while. Just so much choice. 90% gluten free because everything is made from fresh produce. Rozza was so knowledgable and willing to share recipes. Too many choices for one evening we will have to go back...to try more. A lovely friendly relaxed atmosphere. Thank you for a great eveningMore

This place was recommended to us by friends who share the same tastes in dining, this was our first visit at Papas When we arrived we got a lovely smiley welcome from Rozza who clearly explained the menu, we shared chicken wings with a lovely...kick, the lamb and prawns were both cooked in fabulous sauces we also had the suggested pita bread, glad we did it just soaked up those sauces. The venue is bright and spotless and service fantastic. We will certainly be backMore

I booked a table at this restaurant for Tuesday 26th July at 1830. The booking was agreed. On arrival it was closed and shows as not opening until 26th August 2022. Nobody had tried to contact me to inform the place was closed.

I came here with a group of colleagues to celebrate the end of a long year. I have never been to this restaurant before but it is simply beautiful. We got the £25 a head deal where they delivered different courses throughout the evening. There...was halloumi, chicken, pork, calamari, hummus, falafel and a DELICIOUS baked aubergine dish! It was all wonderful. I was very full by the end but I still had room for a pudding. I had the baklava which was very sweet and tasty. Overall, amazing service with delicious food in a very relaxed restaurant. 5 stars.More

Had an absolutely amazing night at Papas last week, it was my first time in Harrogate and so glad we found this restaurant! The food was delicious, it was the best moussaka I've every had, and I've eaten a fair few! The waitress was lovely...and couldn't do enough for you. Felt so relaxed and cosy in the authentic setting, loved it and can't wait to come back!More

Visited for the first time whilst on a short stay in the town. Was looking for decent vegetarian food and was not disappointed. A very warm welcome by pleasant staff. The place is small and quite intimate, with a nice atmosphere. Greek music as background...but not intrusive. The service was quick and the food very good, tasty, and adequate portions. Delighted with the experience, and would definitely recommend the establishment.More

Have been to this restaurant many times and never had a bad meal yet. Great food reasonably priced, served by efficient and charming staff. We usually go for a selection of dishes but I’ve also been and had just a main course. It gets very...busy so I would advise booking.More

*The chef came out and shouted at my family whilst we were trying to enjoy my birthday meal* We visited Saturday 9th April at 5pm to celebrate my birthday. Myself, husband, 2 babies, my mum, dad and brother. We had ordered our food and enjoyed...our starter dishes. Food we had tried was really tasty. Then we had also ordered 2 mixed lamb/chicken souvlakis. Husbands was fine, my brothers lamb however was very chewy, rubbery and difficult to cut into. We told the waitress who was reluctant to take it back to the kitchen. She said to order a new dish and she would take it off the bill. My brother said he just wanted the lamb replacing. Next thing, THE CHEF has come out and proceeded to SHOUT at my brother. Telling him it is from the same animal, he cannot cook it differently, etc and then stormed off!! We were in absolute shock!! We didn’t want to continue our meal, being spoken to like that. Another man came to us saying he is sorry, the Chef is the owner (?) what can he do to help. We asked for the bill for the starters we had eaten and that we would not be staying to eat another thing. The man ( who I assume is the actual owner) did just charge us for what we had eaten but we left a table full of food because of the way the Chef came out and shouted at us. We were not going to continue eating and paying £££, to be spoken to like that! Never experienced anything like it! The food we had tried (apart from lamb souvlaki) was nice. But this ruined my birthday and we will not be going back again.More

Excellent place and do you know why? The owners run it. So many people these days own a restaurant and then employ others who often could not care less about the customer experience to run it. Papa's is excellent and good value. In fact writing...this review had made me want to book again - so I must go now and do it.More
