No one would have expected a good snack point on that road, the closeness to the water makes the environment cool. Was there with friend to buy some snacks, got more than we bargained for. we ended up taking their chocolates, pies and croissants. Lovely!

When you're not sure what to eat or where to go, there's always cactus. Good food (nice salads), decent service, pleasant environment. Parking can be a pain though!

I've been to this place a few times (well maybe more than a few times) and I've had a good experience each time. There's a little playground (that's not as safe as it should be- way too many trip hazards) that the kiddos could use for entertainment. The food is good and there's plenty of parking, which is gold in... More

I live in Lagos and really struggle for Continental food at lunch, especially something I can take away. Food here is of a high standard and I enjoy dropping in as well as having food to take out. Thankfully the menu is so extensive I can do this every day. Thanks Cactus team - keep it up!

The pro-bono nuts on table kept the conversation going. Meals were ready surprisingly much quicker than expected. The chicken wings were fabulous and the pizza was crusty (I like crusty Pizza) Comfortable chairs, large interior,however if full may feel over-crowded Loved the experience though pricey!

Went for lunch with a friend. I liked the variety on the menu. The Avocado Shrimp salad is worth dying for ! Overall, we had a great time, although I felt it was rather pricey.
