Good food.

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.

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

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

The First thing that greets you is the ambiance of the restaurant, the attentiveness and general responsiveness of the staff to your request and yes the food equally tastes great. Their cakes provoke every craving for good taste that you have although you may want to take a good look at the price if that bothers you before you make... 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!!!
