They got my order wrong, and since it takes a rather long time to get your food (it gives a warning about this on the menu) I decided not to send it back even though the waitress offered. Even though the food wasn't what I ordered, the enchiladas were very good! The family members I had with me were satisfied... More

I met some friends to discuss some business opportunities. The Mexican dishes were great! The restaurant seems a favorite of locals. Friendly service, a full menu of seafood and Mexican dishes. Not fancy but good food reasonably priced. The restaurant also has a full bar.

The food was great here. But, as in the title, the chips seemed like they were from the grocery store shelf. The queso dip was warm, thick and had a great taste. The service as excellent, and our server checked several times to freshen drinks and bring some lime, etc... My wife and I had the blue crab quesadilla, which... More

Cactus Flower is one of our favorite local restaurants. The food is delicious and the service outstanding. We were so pleased when Cactus Flower opened in Navarre and have yet to be disappointed. This family-owned restaurant truly showcases California-style Mexican fare. Some of my favorites include the shrimp mango-habanero appetizer and the chimichangas. Love this little jem!

My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant several times. The food is very good Mexican fare. We are recently from Colorado where Mexican food is an art! The owner is a great guy who moves from table to table chatting with clients. The only drawback is that it is a small space, and the wait for a table... More

How can you rate a Mexican restaurant anything but low when they don't make their own tortilla chips (think Tostitos I'm pretty sure), and serve wine-based Margaritas? I could be wrong as I intentionally haven't been for a long while. Definitely unauthentic, but there's certainly a place for Gringo Mexican, and thi$ i$ it. Food's fresh but just ok, service...

Probably one of the better places to eat in Navarre. Nice atmosphere and staff was great. Service good. Food was a little spicy for our taste. But most people would be fine with it.

Six hungry friends and I showed up at the Cactus Flower for dinner on a week night. From the moment we were greeted until we paid the check we were treated like royalty. Our server was super attentive and timed the meal perfectly. We were also waited on by many other of the staff who brought us extra chips (four... More
