Let me start from the good points: The ambience and the interior were really nice and Mexican. Now come the bad ones: The service wasn't the best for sure. The food was anything but Mexican. If you hav ever tried good Mexican food, don't go there. You will be too disappointed. If you have to go, then order Mexican soup,... More

She welcomed us with a nice smile, and was very helpful with the high chair for my kid, and she kept her eyes on her for any help,... More

I wore a t-shirt again and this time they didn't make an issue of it. Perhaps they are starting to wise up. We'll see. The waitress was very good. The food was good - of course, still overpriced and not authentic, but good for Armenia.

The restaurant serves Mexican food. The food is very tasty and the ambiance is also very nice. The service is very good. The price is a bit on the higher side but worth the spend.

So this is the first time I met a place I really don't like in Yerevan! The prices are so high and the location is so good, so staff should be soooo friendly!!! We came with my friend to that place. First, a waiter smiled to us and was nice. Then, we ordered drinks with snacks and a salad. I... More

I'm an American Armenian from near Chicago. I have lived in Yerevan for over two years. I've been to Cactus a number of times - including one time before I moved here. The food here is okay, but it is definitely not authentic Mexican cuisine and it is very over-priced. I have tons of Mexican friends in the Chicago area... More

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.
