Came here as I had some time to spare. Really good food, great service. Steak and cheese quesadilla is a great choice, hot and good portion size! Unlike chain restaurants, it gives you your moneys worth!

I have been to cactus many times, it's been open for as long as I can remember. Hadn't visited for a while so decided to go on valentines night for a little treat. Great food as always, we had nachos to start then both had the combo for main, no room for dessert this time but I do love the... More

I like this place although slightly over hyped, the food was good but not the standard of a larger Mexican place, quite pricy too for what it is

Had veggie, gluten free nachos which were a starter for 2 to share as a filling main. The textures and tastes all together on a plate of jalapeño, melted cheese, guacamole, nachos, sour cream and chilli were devine. Really good value and bright, friendly service with good knowledge of menu. Will go again next time I'm visiting the area. Very... More

We came here for a friends birthday meal which, to be honest, ended up being very average indeed. The food was nice (I had the fajitas which come sizzling on a plate) and the cocktails are great, but the staff seemed miserable and you could hear the chefs shouting through the window to the kitchen. The toilets are small and... More

Visited on a Monday night early evening - not very busy. Ordered a nachos sharing starter for two, then a quesadilla & a burrito. The nachos starter came reasonably promptly - plenty for two to share - had it with the veg chilli as an extra, quite spicy but not too much. The chicken quesadilla was quite a big portion,... More

Nice enough place but the steak fajitas were genuinely a bit bland. The steak was a nice cut of meat though. We weren't asked how our meal was or if we wanted anything else when our meal was cleared so that was disappointing because we had to call the waitress over to consider if we wanted dessert. Maybe some of... More
