This is a great restaurant with super service and a really good menu. Complimentary nachos with salsa to start your meal and then all of your favourite Mexican dishes. Try the Baha Marguerite.

Our service was really friendly and offered lots of suggestions about the menu - we were too full to have dessert but he gave us a complimentary creme caramel which was out of this world - definitely work the short walk along Westlake Ave or you can jump on the Seattle Street Car (transit) which stops almost outside the door.

My husband and i were visiting my son at school in Seattle and wanted a Mexican dinner close to downtown. Cactus was cheerful, cozy, and the food was excellent. I had delicious fish tacos; everyone ordered something different and each of us loved our meal. Added bonus- the service was fantastic!

We've eaten here several times and have always enjoyed the food, the margaritas, and the service. The specials are always interesting. The fajitas and enchiladas are fresh-tasting, and the beans and rice are very good. The lights and decor at this location are very pleasant.

Excellent menu selection, always with a twist on your standard
Mexican fare. Great margaritas. Friendly, efficient service.
Fairly noisy, but with a great bar scene. Our location, on
Alki, is a local favorite, ESP. In the summer.

Stopped in last Saturday for lunch for the first time and we loved it. We sat at the bar and meet Juan who quickly made us a couple of margarita's. They were great as were the chips, salsa and guacamole. We also ordered some lunch (burritos) and thought they were some of the best we ever had. Much to my delight they also had some very good hot sauces. This place also has some great atmosphere and we really enjoyed our time there and will definitely be going back.
