ICE COLD BEER & Jenga :)

Honestly the coldest beers we've had which was very welcome considering the summer heat! We had a chilled afternoon enjoying our beers and playing Jenga (supplied by the restaurant) with a view of the sea and people passing by. Friendly staff and the food looked great although we never tried any... read more

Having been in Greece for over a week I fancied a change in food. After reading some reviews on trip advisor I thought I would give cactus a try, I was not disappointed the food & service was fantastic. I had two enjoyable Mexican dishes and my girlfriend went for the Thai prawn green curry (pictured below), having both been... More

Our entire experience at cactus restaurant was wonderful! The location is right across from the beach so the view is beautiful at sunset. We have eaten here twice and both times our food was delicious. The service here is what sets it apart though. Both times we have had some of the best customer service since being in Greece. Would...

Firstly Cactus was one of the most beautiful restaurants I have seen in a long time. To our pleasant surprise the food was even better, probably one of the best mexican food I have eaten in a very long time. The owner is a very cool well traveled guy and I suggest you take his tips for their specialties...

I live for Mexican food. I also live for traveling, so about 99% of my food cravings are for Mexican food which is non-existent in Europe. This place is a the closest thing I could get to home and a real salvation for anyone else who is dying for some spice. Delicious chips & salsa, margaritas, free wifi + it's... More

We ordered and our server offered us some salsa. The salsa came with literally 4 chips. Salsa was good, but of course required more chips. The bill for the chips was E18! I think the Nachos Supreme that we had was made with canned Hormel Chili. Alas, it's my fault: why on earth would you expect good Mexican food in... More

The Mexican food was absolutely beautiful. The fajitas, enchiladas, guacamole and salsa dip some of the best we have had anywhere in the world. Highly recommended for singles, couples or families.

Great food & service. After two weeks of fish and feta we wanted something else and this was it! Also amazing cocktails (especially the strawberry mojito). Beautiful location overlooking the beach. Go here if you have a chance.
