Really enjoy their style of Mexican food, especially the salsa and the blue corn tortilla enchiladas. The wait staff is always friendly and attentive. They have a special tamale once in a great while which is out of this world and I've only had it once, so I can't tell you anything more about it than that, but it was... More

Good Mexican food. I highly recommend the queso dip. The carne asada plate was very good and the corn was great. Everybody we were with liked their dinner.

I have never been much of a fan of mexican food because most of the mexican restaurants I had visited so far gave me the impression that everything was either drowned in cheese or overcooked. So I was very pleasantly surprised at the excellent fare in Cactus. The food here is excellent. Dishes are light, not drowned in sauces or... More

Mexican food is popular in Seattle but it's pretty difficult to find a good one. we were nicely surprised to find cactus. It's very good!!!! They have a happy hour that we enjoy a lot. This is a place to go for good food!

Great drinks. Great food - what more is there to say? Only pitty: no reservations and they now have a weird buzzer system that does not even let you go for a walk to the marina or you get out of reaching- miss their mobile phone based system from before and that you could at least get on the list...

Not sure why this place is so busy. The food is fine, but nothing that great. Service is rote and corporate.

We stopped in for lunch while waiting for the Blue Angels air show. While the area was crowded, they seated us quickly. The staff was friendly and the food was really good! I have to say, the salsa was some of the best I've ever had. Definitely check them out!

We had lunch at the Cactus whilst visiting Kirkland for a week recently. The restaurant was very busy, with most tables busy, which is always a good sign, so we decided to eat here. We weren't disappointed. The food was plentiful and tasty at reasonable prices and the service was excellent. Our waitress described the items we asked about from... More
