It is off the beaten path but worth it. Unbelievable priced entrees that are so delicious you cannot believe the price.

A very busy small restaurant. Limited menu but they are all excellent choices. It is not licensed, the special juices are a good alternative. The food was tasty, a bit salty for our taste and the fish somewhat overdone. However, the combination of pleasant staff, small size, tasty food made for an enjoyable meal. Worth a try and excellent value.

Excellent hidden gem! A must try while in Playa del Carmen. French Chef and owner will delight your taste buds. Cactus in operation for 6 years and Frederique has cooked and trained in France, Ireland, Switzerland USA and is serving up beautiful Mexican, however the crepes, oh my goodness the crepes without a doubt best I've had since Paris.
