“Food ok, but have to wait”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

The food we had was ok but not nearly as good as other places on offer. We had to wait nearly 40 minutes to be served, it was a busy night and waiters looked rushed off their feet,..when the food arrived it was good.
Attempted to order desert but gave up waiting paid the bill and left. I know in Greece you have to wait for the food but waiting to take the order is another thing!
Yes the food is good if you dont mind a very long wait, People where queuing outside to wait for a table..

“Nice food and staff”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

The food we had was nice but not as good as some of the other meals on offer in near by restaurants which we had. The staff are friendly and the prices are reasonable.
If you visit the parrot can be entertaining.

“Feels like home ❤️”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

I've been eating there every year on my vacation since 1996. The food, the atmosphere, the staff, the service, the familyfeeling, the laughs, the area is still after 18 years... just Perfect!!!! I want to sit there and never go anywhere else.
Thank you for the last 18 years and for the coming 18 years I'll be back and I will continue recommend Cactus for all I know to go there when they come to Xania.
Good luck!! ❤️
