I have passed this place for years and never thought to check it out. I missed many great meals. My out-of-town sister browsed Trip Advisor and found it. I have now gone there three times in the past two weeks and I am very impressed. The place sits at the end of a strip mall next to the Starbucks drive... More

This is a good restaurant, but not great. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was nice enough. The manager was very knowledgeable, and willing to answer my questions about farm-raised vs. wild caught fish (rockfish and salmon farm raised, the rest is wild caught). No specific organic offerings, but much of the produce is local. Since so many other... More

We were in staying in Salisbury, and wanted a good dinner. Some fellow travelers told us about the Cactus Taverna other wise we would not have given it a second look. We were certainly happy about our good fortune. This mid-eastern style restaurant - with a full, diverse, menu - gave us one of the best dinners we have had... More

By far this restaurant is the best in Salisbury for food and service. This is our go to restaurant for special occasions. I would eat here more often if we could afford to. My favorite dish is the Sunfish. Never had a bad experience here and the service is always above and beyond our expectations. The owner always has a... More

Had dinner there for my wife's birthday. Our server, Emma, was very efficient and knowledgable. Can't say enough about the service . The atmosphere was nice and we enjoyed the entertainer ( ( singer with guitar ) both my wife and myself had the Paella which was unfortunately only average.

We had dinner at the Cactus Taverna in Salisbury on a weekday evening. Cactus Taverna is a Mediterranean restaurant with an emphasis on Spanish style food. The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere for dining. The owner is continually circulating around the restaurant to mingle with the customers. I ordered the Mahi-mahi in a roasted red pepper sauce with crab... More

Last night we discovered Cactus Taverna. Wow! What a delightful surprise! From the outside it looks like just another Mexican restaurant in a strip mall. Inside we discovered a menu that leaned more Peruvian, and everything our party ordered was fresh and delicious! The owner greeted us shortly after we were seated, which rarely happens anywhere in 2014. And the... More
