This is a hidden gem restaurant with great prices. They offer steak, pork and seafood dishes that are unbelievably good. My personal favorite is tuna fajitas style. If you aren't a fan of Mexican food, but the rest of the family is, not to worry. They have plenty of dishes to chose from.

When you walk in the doors of Cactus Cafe you have not entered a restaurant but a family. It is truly the warmest customer service in the area and I have lived here for more than 35 years. Cactus is a regular stop for my family because it is hard to find a place that makes great food and makes... More

Where do I begin? From the family-friendly atmosphere to the ridiculously good sauces and specials. Cactus Trio with Mushroom Diana Sauce? Scallop Cakes? Half-rack of ribs with raspberry jalepeno sauce? We could go on. We've had our wedding rehearsal dinner here, and it's a regular date-night spot. Highly-recommended.

Good Mexican food, fahitas were great (Sunday special $9.99). Most of the clientele seems like regulars, and everyone seemed to ordering pitchers of Margaritas or Sangria along with their food. Very attentive service..

Had a family gathering at the restaurant. Staff was very attentive and food was very tasty. Depending on what you order portions can be small. Fish Tacos are amazing and the fresh salsa on the table it great.

We've been visiting this restaurant for as long as I can remember. Food is amazing! Fresh and tons of specials every night. You can't get a better staff. We feel like we are part of the family every time we visit. So many great dishes, I can't begin to list them all!

Hands down the best Mexican food anywhere at the beach. Although we enjoy Tequila Mockingbird in OC, the Cactus Cafe has GREAT food and awesome service. Drinks are always good, too! Get the sangria!!!

My husband & I go here often, usually with friends. We LOVE their pitchers of margaritas, as well as the fresh food! I usually order some kind of seafood like seabass, & the sides like polenta, rice & beans are fresh & tasty. Never had a bad meal there, & service is great! Music adds to the atmosphere too when...
