Visited Cactus with family for a Sunday lunch. Definitely a happening place. Visit in the evening as then you can sit by the creek, will be worth the visit. Portion size and cost both are huge. Chicken wings and red hot chicken wings were good, different and good. Suya was below average. Service was a bit slow, though I do... More

Very nice cafe with indoor and outdoor seating on the riverside. The food portions are huge, more than most Europeans can eat, the prices are expensive. Service is very good. Expect to drop 20k plus for a couple.

The food was very nice (breakfast) but on the pricey side for breakfast. Good atmosphere though and the service was excellent

Cactus has been a standard for me, for over a decade. I recommend to anyone (without any reservations) who is keen on good quality service, ambience, pastries and of course salads!!!

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!
