This was our 43rd visit to Corralejo (we obviously love it!).
We'd been to Kactus once in the past and didn't rate it but thought we'd give it another go this time around.
It's in a great location in the old town where there are lots of fab bars (Bougainville, Chill and Blue Rock are all very good) but this place just doesn't improve.
We had 2 rounds of drinks but the staff simply didn't care, we actually waited 25mins to get our second round of drinks and they weren't that busy and it was only 2 glasses of wine so not a difficult order. To be fair the waitress asked if we wanted crisps but they never arrived.
We asked for the bill and after 10mins I went o the bar to ask again - the waitress was outside having a cigarette!
The couple on the next table to us had a similar experience and it was clear they wouldn't be returning either.
Didn't quite spoil our night but we definitely won't be giving the place another chance.

We called a few times during the holidays,first attracted by the street being lively with a busking band,really friendly service from waitress Francesca, who seemed to serve almost everyone herself,always with a smile, even when she was rushed of her feet.
We had small amounts of tapas on a couple of occcasions, food very tasty and reasonable price.Just be aware if they are busy you may have to be patient,but once you are in the CHILLED atmos you will love it.
Lovely genuine goodbye at the end of hols.

It was a lovely chilled out bar with really comfy seating. Nice cocktails and good tapas. Bar staff were really friendly and service was quick.

Really cool place. Tried a number of different cocktails in various venues but this place beats them all. Excellent service and brilliant cocktails. Only a small place but very cool outside furniture so you can sit, chill out and watch the world go by, not tried the tapas so cannot comment.

We visited Kactus having read other Tripadvisor reviews and took advantage of the set Tapas meal. It was a different experience for us of tapas, it being an Italian restaurant. Only one of the six tapas on offer was a fish dish - lovely garlic prawns. Service was prompt but not rushed, the waitress waited until we had virtually finished with one dish before providing the next. We also were given a glass of wine as part of the deal. During our meal, we spoke with other diners who had clearly dined there before. We learned that the main menu is quite extensive and if visiting in future we would select from that. We did enjoy the tapas but felt that we may have enjoyed more a selection from the main menu. All in all, a good first time experience and will visit again on our next trip out to Corralejo.
