Being a non-meat eater, there were enough items for me from which to choose. Which sometimes is not the case. The food was tasty, well served, and fresh. Our friends were also very satisfied with their meal. Service was attentive and friendly. We were at the Marine Way and Byrne location.

We were exhausted from a long day of sightseeing, and on a last-minute whim decided to stop in to Cactus Club Cafe for an early dinner before crashing back at the hotel. Good choice!!! We were seated immediately and the service throughout the meal was top-notch. I ordered Rob's Flatbread pizza which was delicious, my friend ordered the pumpkin/prawn ravioli...she... More

I had the starter salad with prawns, it was a good size and tasted really good, the prawns were big. Then I ordered the bbq ribs with mashed potatoes and asparagus. It was roll your eyes in the back of your head delicious. Before the meal I had ordered a beer and water. The waitress I assume was in training... More

Dinner here was just okay - sliders were extremely salty, fish tacos were dry and a little flavourless. Staff was friendly and attentive. Restaurant itself is a little tired. I would opt for the Cactus Club on Marine Way in Burnaby next time - we have been there numerous times and never had a poor meal or service.

Cactus club has high-quality, consistent food, and good selection of wine. It's our go-to place for family gatherings. The Coal Harbour location has a gorgeous view but it could get busy. The Market Crossing location is convenient for us ... the bathroom has a lounge area (of course the food is good too!).

We shared the Thai chicken lettuce wraps and then we shared a shrimp dish that was excellent. Food was kind of pricey, but no more than what you would expect from a fine dining restaurant.

Well it's all about execution and much of it is flawed there. Cocktails are watery, they don't know how to make a martini. We sent it back and the new one was bad too. Calamari overbreaded. Cod too dry. Salmon was very good. Service friendly and attentive but the girls don't know much about good food. Overall it was disappointing.... More

While I normally have a disdain for chain restaurants, Cactus Club always impresses. The food & service are always great! Stephanie was our server at lunch today and the restaurant was very busy. She was on the ball and very friendly! The food was also excellent as always! As the restaurant was so busy we had to wait a few... More

The Cactus Club Cafe always has great food with friendly service. It is a great place to have a business lunch or to unwind after a busy work day..... A great place to return to and always superior service with great food!

A small group of four of us were there on a Friday night. We had made reservations, but were very late due to the weather. We lost our reservation, but only waited a few minutes for another table. Staff was very friendly overall and our waitress, Melanie was very attentive. We started off with an order of calamari to share,... More
