Great environment and atmosphere for a family. Lots of outside activities to keep the kids happy which was an extra plus for them. Food was just okay and nothing exciting so that let them down a bit. Portion size is great and you do get value for money Which is rare in Nigeria. Overall a good restaurant for a casual... More

Amazing breakfasts and bakery. Everything else overpriced and mediocre. Decent waiters and great view of the lagoon. Also family friendly.

I have been a regular client to cactus for years. I have also noticed the continous improvement on staffing food choices and decor. A very warm ambience. Whatever is on your mind when you go in there you fit in. Their festival salad and houmous with minced beef in olive oil and warm flat bread is my favourite. Great place.

Cactus is on the lagoon and eating on the terrace is wonderful. Every morning we go there to have breakfast. The personnel is adorable and the service is excellent. We sometimes go also in the evening. Food is good, eating outside is a dream (just beware mosquitoes). They have all sort of foods, from Lebanese, to Italian with continental also.... More

Excellent food, nice ambience and a very family friendly restaurant. The outdoor children's playground makes it even engaging for kids while the family dines. They have a wide range of food but no Nigerian dish on the menu.
