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

Family meal, Saturday evening, kids 8-12 years, good menu, good value. Simply a nice place to relax and enjoy Tex mex served by an independent trader rather than the ubiquitous soulless chain restaurants trying their best to look and taste authentic. We'll be going back sometime.

I came here recently with some friends and we absolutely loved our visit. The food was great and very reasonably priced. There's a really nice atmosphere and the staff are very friendly. I would definitely recommend the fajitas or the chilli and the cocktails are great as well! Although the Cactus Cafe has been around for a while it's still... More
