Right after we were seated our server left and we didn't see her again. After a person who had entered after us had already received their drinks someone else noticed us and took our order. We then waited a considerable time for our quite simple...order even though the one of the only two other full tables had already gotten their food when we walked in leaving one solo customer. My meal when it arrived was overcooked and very oversalted though my husband enjoyed his.More

I used to think that cactus was a good taco place in amtigua until today. My wife is from costa rica and explained that the besns were old and needed to be discarded from the menu thay day. They were not good for anyone to...eat. The waitress, who we think is from spain, was very rude and said sure yeah whatever. She said let me check to see what I can replace this with. Then she never came back. Then my wife said so are you going to replace the bad beans with something and she was once again very rude and almost not paying attention to us, our table, our order or anything that had just happened. Super bad service and pretty bad food.More

Delicious tacos - spicy for once which has been hard to find in Guatemala. Extensive menu and they cater to gluten intolerance. Yummy cocktails and cheap beer. Reasonably priced and service is speedy. Highly recommend, fun space with great atmosphere.

A tiny taco shop that nevertheless provides table service. The tacos are tasty though a little different from Mexican street tacos, which is fine since it's not Mexico. As far as beverages there are beer and soda, the bill will come with a 10% gratuity...included (as do all bills in Antigua). The service is pretty good, and the prices are reasonable. I'd come here again.More

Small place but cozy and cute. I enjoyed this visit even more than the last as the pescado al pastor burrito was excellent! Will definitely come back every time I’m in Antigua!

Don’t leave Antigua without a visit and meal (or 3) at Cactus. Authentic and original menu created and cares for my the one and only Laura Amalia. Completely updated with the new “standards,” yet retains the classic local vibe, music, funky, fun, amazing staff both...front and back. they make you feel good and the tacos are the best in the country. also try the cochinita pibil Nachos, the best in the world!More

Back in August, my girlfriend and I were traveling through Antigua for a couple days and our Airbnb host invited us to a restaurant. Up until the last day we couldn't make time so we went before we left. When I tell you I was...BLOWN away by the burrito, I honestly shed a few tears when I had to go. Amazing staff and wonderful environment in general. 110% would recommend and we honestly cant wait to come back to Antigua.More

The tacos, burritos, margaritas, and more are always excellent! This is one of the top spots I recommend to friends and family when they visit Antigua. You can't beat the food, warm atmosphere, and live music!

We loved the shrimp and bacon burrito but found the salsas and chips lacking in flavor. And we didn't love paying extra for them. It's a bit touristy but still relatively inexpensive.

Found this place during our wanderings, noticed their sign for fish tacos. Had the fish marinated in beer and mustard, carrot cream soup, and fish burrito. The food was fresh-tasting and delicious, the service was excellent, and the setting comfortable for such a small place....Prices are very reasonable. Not to be missed if you like tacos.More
