A tiny taco shop that nevertheless provides table service. The tacos are tasty though a little different from Mexican street tacos, which is fine since it's not Mexico. As far as beverages there are beer and soda, the bill will come with a 10% gratuity...included (as do all bills in Antigua). The service is pretty good, and the prices are reasonable. I'd come here again.More

Small place but cozy and cute. I enjoyed this visit even more than the last as the pescado al pastor burrito was excellent! Will definitely come back every time I’m in Antigua!

Don’t leave Antigua without a visit and meal (or 3) at Cactus. Authentic and original menu created and cares for my the one and only Laura Amalia. Completely updated with the new “standards,” yet retains the classic local vibe, music, funky, fun, amazing staff both...front and back. they make you feel good and the tacos are the best in the country. also try the cochinita pibil Nachos, the best in the world!More

Back in August, my girlfriend and I were traveling through Antigua for a couple days and our Airbnb host invited us to a restaurant. Up until the last day we couldn't make time so we went before we left. When I tell you I was...BLOWN away by the burrito, I honestly shed a few tears when I had to go. Amazing staff and wonderful environment in general. 110% would recommend and we honestly cant wait to come back to Antigua.More

The tacos, burritos, margaritas, and more are always excellent! This is one of the top spots I recommend to friends and family when they visit Antigua. You can't beat the food, warm atmosphere, and live music!

We loved the shrimp and bacon burrito but found the salsas and chips lacking in flavor. And we didn't love paying extra for them. It's a bit touristy but still relatively inexpensive.
