If you like pina colada and getting out of the rain, duck into the Cactus restaurant in Neuchâtel. They serve excellent margaritas and mojitos too. It was our first time in this Mexican joint and we were delighted. Nicette gave us a friendly smile and...More

After eating this mexican cuisine, we were really, really full! It was so delicious! We ordered tortillas with guacamole, questillas with cheese & chicken and tamales! Fantastic! And then some mains. Really good quality and food. Loved this place.

This is a restaurant tries to be Mexican but without success. The food is not good. Please visit it only if you desperate for something that looks like Mexican food and you are in Neufchâtel.

We just had dinner at "Cactus" and really enjoyed the atmosphere, the kind and proactive service and last but not least the delicious enchiladas, etc... When in Neuchâtel, just give it a try!

This restaurant has only one bad thing, they don't open on Mondays! The food is great, I strongly recommend the Burrito de Vaca and the Chicken Enchiladas, very good. The tortillas are done with Maseca which gives them that authentic mex-flavor a world away.

Coming from NYC with a plethora of amazing Mexican restaurant options ranging from dollar tacos to fine dining, it's a cuisine I'm quite familiar with. Sadly, this restaurant simply was not up to par. To be fair, the service was great and the decor was...More

I've tried many restaurants in Neuchatel and Cactus is my favourite. Food, ambiance, service, price... everything's great :)

Home made chili con carne and the whole Mexican cuisine thing, with Mexican beer and spirits. It´s kind of - uhh - un-Swiss, but somehow late in the evening the whole things works. The prices are fair and the service is helpful and patient with...More
