“Don't pass this up!!”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Went in search of a decent spot for dinner and found Cactus Club Cafe.
Great welcome to the restaurant, lovely lighting, great wide tables, comfortable seats and an absolute pleasure to have experienced. Had two fall cohiba's before ordering up our dinner. We started with the hot wings which were divine and potato skins. Then for mains ordered up the jambalaya bowl and jd burger. Washed down with a daily udder and breakfast tea. The bill was broken down into what the person sat in a respective seat actually ordered up. This is such a great feature as there is no confusion or uncertainty as to who had what dining in bigger groups. Dom and the team there truly are cracking. We wish there was a Cactus Club in London.

“Surprisingly good dinner”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

We ate at Cactus Club as we were waiting to attend a performance nearby. We both ordered the same menu items and the service was excellent. We both had a green salad that was huge and very tasty. I could have just had that had I known how satisfying it would be. We also had steak which was perfectly cooked along with the best buttery mashed potatoes I've had in a restaurant of this type in quite a while. We left a very nice tip for the great service.

“Consistently yummy”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

This is a great restaurant that is happy to cater to it's clients. They will never say no to a request. But heads up there is no kids menu so feeding your child will be very costly.

“What Fantastic Food and Service!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

We visited Victoria for the day to see Butchart Gardens and stopped here for dinner based on a recommendation from a northern Vancouver firefighter. Fantastic food - the duck sandwich, Szechuan Salmon Rice bowl and garden burger were fantastic, a great value too!

“Expensive tastes”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

The service was patient with the amount of time we needed to make our food and drink selection- but then service wasn't great- some of the dirty dished from our appies weren't cleared before the main arrived, the wine glass had backed on bits on the outside (from the dishwasher?) and the table was a little sticky. The food was expensive, but very tasty. The spinach salad advertised feta- but there was very little to be found
