We have eaten at Cactus twice while in Antigua, and have not been disappointed.

The tacos are spectacularly tasty and fresh. My girlfriend is allergic to egg, so when her tacos came out with a mayonnaise-based sauce not described on the menu, the staff were more than accommodating, quickly taking her dish and remaking from scratch without the sauce!

The cocktails at Cactus are also great, we tried the lime margarita and blackberry mojito. Neither will disappoint!

This teeny little cafe with seats on the street doesn't look like much but they can cook up a storm. Think gourmet street food with great flavours! They have a few different fish tacos to choose from, we shared them and were fighting over who got to finish what! The Margaritas were super tasty too.

Come for the food. Stay for Laura.

Cactus Grill has some of the best burritos I've ever had in my life (and that is no exaggeration). Shrimp and bacon burritos are fantastic! The atmosphere is full of fun and great energy.

Make sure you come on your first night in Antigua. You WILL return. And that's a guarantee :D

Cheers!

Again bigger is not better. The place only has 3 tables. I kept seeing this place crowded and asked around and EVERYBODY recommended it. They are known for their fish tacos but I got a chicken burrito enchilada style and it was EXCELLENT. Everything I saw looked great and I will definitely be back. It was better than Mexico and I lived there for years.

We found the service very good. We didn{t particularly
like sitting on the street. Literaaly, the place is small and
two of our stools were placed onthe sidewalk.

The food was good. The Nachos were good but small.
The fish taco was good but we thught from the other
reviews they would be much better.

Prices are good.
