'Cool' Place with Good Ambience and Good Food

My wife and I have been frequent visitors to Cactus over many years. We find the place friendly and 'cool'. Of late we have become fond of sitting at the seating arrangements next to the Lagos Lagoon. The relaxed environment and the cool breeze is relaxing.

Our first visit and we were delighted to find this place that takes you away from the hustle and bustle of Lagos. Food is very good. We tried Alfredo, Pesto Chicken, fish and a salad with chicken. Everything was tasty with great presentation. Salad was a little bland, but very filling. Everyone enjoyed their choices. I feel the waitress was... More

Absolutely empty at 8 ish on a weekday night - and the food was pretty uninspiring. Overcooked salmon, chips cooked in stale oil, and disinterested service - won't be back.

The takeaway lunch from the Cactus restaurant we enjoyed was well wrapped and packed properly in a carton box. The spicy rice was very tasteful. The chicken with red mushroom was also quite good. The portions were quite generous. The soft drinks in bottles were delivered nice and cold. The only remark could be that the plastic silverware/cutlery provided was... More

The restaurant is well located and there is plenty variety of good food to choose from. You have to be patient though, as delivery may take longer than expected (in fairness, this is typical of a la carte menu)......in case you are in a hurry or very hungry you'd better go to a fast food eatery. In the end, you... More

Very consistent food and happy waiters sets this place apart from the competition. We are regulars for breakfast and lunch at weekends - so nice to be able to sit by the water and relax in relative peaceful surrounds. Breakfasts and sandwiches are our favourite Xxxx

Been a regular at cactus for years. It looks like they changed their staff because I just had a nasty encounter with a "mr Habib"who is the manager there today. He is a bad example of a supervisor. I was in the company of a colleague and we were given a single bill, when i requested that it should be... More
