We were passing through town and found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. This restaurant more than lived up to its billing. Very friendly staff, excellent service and outstanding food. We teased the staff about staying in Salisbury an additional night just so we could eat there again!

Though we have enjoyed this place with a large group, this is our favorite place for couple's night out. Exemplary service, great food and atmosphere.

This is a popular place in Salisbury. My wife likes it. For me I can't seem to quite find what is the type of cuisine is their best meal. Seems to be a mix of several kinds - Mexican, American, Eastern European, even Italian. You won't get a bad meal. Just not my preference.

Cactus Taverna can always be counted on for innovative, seasonal dishes paired with classic flavors. One of my favorite appetizers was their alligator, especially the raspberry jalapeno dipping sauce. I loved the Hawaiian Sunfish topped with seafood imperial and the service was attentive, yet not overbearing.

this was the first restaurant we visited when we came to Salisbury and has been our favorite for all special occasions and work entertainment... only place i know that serves Escargot, their lamb shank is the best, and their endless chips and salsa are a delight.

First time ever and will definitely be back again. We thought this was a Mexican Restaurant but it is so much more. They have a nice variety on the menu and then an even better selection of specials. I had the Stuffed egg plant with shrimp and scallops and my husband had shish kabobs that had a beef one, veggie... More

Enjoyed meal thoroughly, not really Mexican tho they have great salsa. More Mid Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine. You'll pay more than a chain but you'll enjoy it far far more! They had a live soloist guitar player who was OK but better than the Mid Eastern background music they had before him. Service was exemplary, I was MOST IMPRESSED how... More

Driving by you would not think to stop and eat here but after reading a few other reviews that raved over this place we gave it a try and I’m so glad we did. The food was amazing. We are big fans of tapas (small plates) and they had a wonderful selection. The menu has a variety of items from... More

Fish is either great or poor. Unfortunately Cactus Taverna is sourcing poor qulaity fish and selling it a very high prices. Service was outstanding. On a previous visit the heat was turned so low that my feet were very cold. No reason not to keep the restaurant at a comfortable temperature.
