“WE LOVE THIS PLACE”
Reviewed 8 October 2010

This is great for a lazy sunday! go there have the ceviche and a large pitcher of sangria and bask in the sunlight on the terrace. Many of the other dishes are good too. The cheese doesn't over power the dishes and its a great little spot to spend the afternoon or have a great dinner among friends.

The service isn't fast so don't go there if you are in a hurry but if you want to hang out and make a night of it, you'll have gone to the right place.

“Sauces made the dish”
Reviewed 12 August 2010

You ever have one of those days where you just keep walking because you cannot figure out where you should eat. It's almost like choice overload. Well, this was one of those days. You get mad and finally you walk into a place and just eat. Well, Cactus was the place for us on this occasion.

While the service was a little slow and we had to ask for water after sitting for 20 minutes with no water, the food was delicious. This is not a typical "mexican" fare. The food is very fresh, the sauces are amazing, the kind you want to just eat spoonfuls of, and it's not the kind of place where you food is drowning in cheese. The food is perfectly balanced and equally tasty. A wonderful little find after a long decision to eat.

“I took only the ceviche...”
Reviewed 12 June 2009

I took only the ceviche, it was good, but if you're mexican or have been to Mexico, you will see no similarities.. What's nice is the terrasse, right on St-Denis. It's a nice relaxed type of place
