Come here every time I am in Salisbury. Service is always excellent. I don't know how they don't seem to have one bad employee. I need to be rolled out after every visit.

We have not been there for a few years, pass it every day, but for some reason never stopped. Why, I don't have a clue. The food & service is excellent, the prices are on the high side for Salisbury, but very worth it, We have gone back & will continue to enjoy this restaurant. You do have to look... More

We were fortunate enough to have found Cactus Taverna when we visited last year- so when we vacationed in the area again this year we took family to enjoy the delicious experience. The appetizer special stuffed shrimp - fried shrimp topped with crab imperial were scrumptious! My meal, salmon veracruz, was cooked perfectly and my hubby was very impressed with... More

Cactus Taverna offers a very odd assortment of dishes - for lack of a better description I'll call it Turkish Tex-Mex by way of Argentina. Most of what we ordered was outstanding with the Chorizo stuffed pepper and Grilled beef w/chimichurri sauce appetizers perhaps being the most notable. I would suggest that the fajitas be avoided as they were overcooked... More

This restaurant has it all - the Mediterranean atmosphere, excellent wait staff, super friendly owner, and most importantly - amazing food. The chips and salsa in the beginning are the perfect appetizer. Wine margaritas are a must! I've eaten there many times and never had a bad meal - their seafood entrees are particularly amazing. Order the flan or local... More

My husband and I chose this restaurant after looking at the menu online, what a great choice. It is in a strip center and doesn't say much from the outside, but walk inside and be transported by a warm welcome to a cozy atmosphere under the "stars." We had the grilled salmon with cilantro butter and the blackened tuna (cooked... More

My wife and I went to cactus taverna for a date night and had a great time. I had the ultimate Surf and turf dinner, and my wife had the grouper topped with crab imperial. The food was awesome and so was the service. We will defiantly be back!

This little restaurant was in a small shopping center. From the outside, it looked sort of unattractive. We would have never found it if we had been driving around looking for a place to eat that was not a chain restaurant. We found it online and it had good reviews. We went there not knowing exactly what to expect and... More

Amazing service and food!! As a former waitress for many years, I have a high standard of satisfaction but am leaving here feeling fully satisfied from my first experience here. Even the waitress in training for 3 days knew the extensive list of specials by heart and had tastes dishes to give recommendations on. Everyone was very attentive to detail... More
