Description: Having been once to Mexico, one wants to be back there again. The fierce heat of the sun, desert and prickly cactus are not the only highlights of the country; it has many wonders to offer, like the mariachi playing guitars, gorgeous dark beauties who entertain the local macho with their flamenco dances. Mexico is the country of tequila, most exotic cocktails, and inexperienced emotions.Having opened in May 2000, the first Mexican restaurant in Yerevan soon became one of the most frequented spots in the city. Over the years, the restaurant has hosted a variety of festivals, has won at several contests, thus earning a great reputation among the city residents, mass media, politicians, show businessmen and tourists. Jovial Mexican spirit catches one’s eye upon entering the restaurant. Warm and cordial welcome, nice interior and lively atmosphere, filled with the tunes of Mexican and Latino music devour you in the air of fiesta. High-quality service, live music, and nice surprises are as entertaining as ever.We boast the richest bar in the country that offers you a great variety of spirits and soft drinks, distinguished and exclusive cocktails, made by the best barmen in the world, winners of international contests. Our Mexican corner welcomes you with its car parking, free delivery, broadband internet, and plenty of other surprises.

They serve the best margarita in town! And the food is great! The only minus is that the place lacks proper ventilation so you feel/breathe all the stink from the kitchen and the cigarette smoke. No no-smoking area, as far as I know, and that is also bad!

I was couple of times at Cactus, even organised birthday party! Remember one thing, it's not cheap, but it definetly worth it. Portions are big, everything is extremelly tasty. The environment is so interesting and cool, as you'd expect from a premium mexican restaurant. Service is on high level, servers can perfectly recommend you the right wine with your dish, they are very helpful and competent. There are also coctail festivals, when you can taste different coctails, prepared by a bar-men himself(fire show etc.).
If you are planning to visit it, you should reserve a table a day prior(if it's on week-end or on holiday).
