While in Vancouver we ate here twice. The food was good and the service great. The menu offers a lot of choice and the drinks are delicious.

The food was excellent at the Cactus Club. We liked it so much, we ate there twice during our week's stay in Vancouver. Hostesses and waitresses were very attentive and unobtrusive. Highly recommend the Cactus Club for their food quality, inventiveness and the great wine list.

As always the staff make the world of difference. Desiree was a fun and charming server who inspired confidence. The food was good - very good for a " chain " and I would return to sit on the patio, watching the world go by. The Rob Feenie inspired dishes were fab and fun. A definite must go when visiting...

This place looks VERY hip and trendy. However, although I am far from either, the staff here was excellent and friendly. I also loved that the menu has a bit of something for EVERYONE--very international and everything we had was exceptional.

This restaurant was down the street from the Blue Horizon hotel where we were staying. The food was well prepared and the service was good. My wife's entrée was barely warm when it arrived at the table. The manager came by to serve us a drink and inquired on how things were. We told her we had to have the... More

Had been to a number of different Cactus Club restaurants during our stay in Vancouver. The staff here were as usual very friendly and efficient and the food was good. However the premises, furnishings were tired and dark with a very low ceiling creating a cramped feeling. A huge contrast with Coal Harbour for example.

We visited during a busy lunch time on a thursday. Staff found us seats at the bar. We were treated like we had a reservation for 12. Good food and prices, staff friendly and fast.

Weekend Night , was super busy , music was loud , but everything about the environment, food, waitress, complimented each other. Food was great, the waitress was super nice and made my experience feel more personal than as if she were to act like its just her job. I will never forget her service, considering how hard it is to... More

On recommendation of the concierge at the Hyatt Regency my wife and I tried out the cactus. We were seated outside and could smell the fresh mountain air throughout the entire dining experience. We ordered the szeschun chicken lettuce wraps and cranberry quesadilla along with the blond and whistler pilsner. The lettuce wraps are absolutely fantastic and were the best... More

Located in the busy shopping strip of Robson Street, the Cactus Club Cafe presents an easy option when out with children. The menu is varied and offers enough options to satisfy all members of our family. And other families too. The place gets really busy around lunch and dinner time, and people are willing to wait the wait.
