“Kite Burger is great; lionfish is burger is unique”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

I missed the restaurant, but the beach wagon is great. Political unrest with a competition starting, and both were stopped from having business on the Kite Beach (Atlantis) by Cargill who mine sea salt by evaparation in big pans.
Cooked to order.

Don't miss it!

“Excited to get lion fish sandwich”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

We kept reading the reviews about this little food cart and were excited to find lion fish available on the menu today. Looked like last week they were a little scarce. Saw plenty on our dive this morning at Invisible, so were definitely ready to try one for lunch. It was delicious and the gentlemen running the food cart was a genuinely friendly guy. Glad we made the effort to try something new.

“Lion fish burger- Awesome Experience”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

At Cactus Blue on the Beach, you get an amazing meal with a million dollar view and great conversation, how could anyone possibly ask for more, well maybe when you go back for seconds on an awesome lion fish burger. Cactus Blue is situated on a perfect location to watch kite surfing, great ocean views and the warm tropical sun on your face, along with friendly conversation while your food is being skillfully prepared. You will learn how and why lion fish are served up and it is clear that the islanders care very much about protecting their reef from unwanted predator! Be sure to get there early to get a chance to have lion burgers since they do run out, but his regular burgers are wonderful as well!! My only regret is that we did not plan enough time on our holiday to go back a second time!! Be sure to like them on Facebook as well!!

“Best beach burger on the planet?”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

Burgers are surprisingly difficult to get right - over cook it and it is like rubber, a dry bun can spoil it all. At Cactus blue on the Beach you can relax and just focus on which sandwich you feel like to day and let its competent owner/chef do his magic. Succulent and made to order - you will not regret this decision - unless, as us, you develop an addiction and have to come back for more over, and over again. Word of caution. Lately the authorities and land owners have made it more difficult to operate and the food truck has had to change location several times. Right now it is to be found on Atlantis, closer to town south of the Airport. Do check out the web-page so you do not go to the wrong place. Also if bad weather he might not be out - but do look for the truck - you will never regret it.
