They have a good restaurant, great ice-cream and cakes. The red velvet cake we got for Valentines was a bit of a let down from what i know Cactus to be. It was so dry. We were very disappointed. Do not let this stop you from trying it out,it was just a one time thing. They are actually pretty... read more

Nice and calm atmosphere next to the lagoon. I enjoyed sitting outside with a friend for a number of hours. Service was on time and pleasant meal. The chips was just the way i like it and salad was just right. If anything could be done about the mosquitoes outside in the evening, it would be appreciated but just a... More

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. The sound of water hitting on the shores is refreshing. We go there by... More

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
