I had their crab salad which I DID NOT like at all! It was made with crab sticks... A friend had chicken pesto pasta which was quite nice but the flies outside and the horrible crab salad has put me off as there was so much hype about the restaurant before I went.

I've felt bad about not reviewing this restaurant, I've hosted birthdays, gone on blind dates, hung out with friends, had business brunch and most recently made this my saturday noon time chill out. I love the festival salad and the avocado shrimp salad (I'm clearly a salad girl). They've maintained the standard and quality for years....Everyone knows that Cactus is... More

Eat indoors with a beautiful ambience and aroma of savoury pastries. Or eat outdoors overlooking the lagoon. Great value for money. If you like to take the kids along, there is a play area, not sure if there is a child minder, but you can eat outdoors still have an eyes view on the kids. You have a choice of... More

I loved Cactus since 2007-2008 and the feeling has not changed and will not for a long time to come. Beautiful ambience and everything serve is delicious- Salads, Cakes, Ice cream etc. You just want more and can't get enough daily. This restaurant/ coffee shop is good for weight watchers. It's located on popular Ozumba Mbadiwe Street, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Wonderful ambience. Their ice cream was worth the hype and they had this really lovely cake (can't remember the name). Their salad is a lot,like a meal - chicken caeser salad and it's so fresh. Their outdoor seating is great and has a perfect view of the Atlantic. You'll definitely love it.

Probably one of the best coffee shop in Lagos. Menu is small but has something for everyone. Nice place by the Lagoon. The pastry section can be limited on days. Good selection of breads, but got to pick them early as it's limited. Huge parking.

It has become a tradition in my family for us to go out for lunch every Sunday. The cactus has become on of the favorites. We were going there sometimes three times in a month. That's how good it is. It's not cheap though
