Unlike some of the other massive seafood restaurants around Langkawi, the staff at Cactus were patient, friendly, and answered my questions about the freshness of each choice. Great food.

Visited Cactus restaurant a few times during our week long stay at The Holiday Villa Resort across the road. Very happy with the food, service and cost. The restaurant doesnt look like much from the outside but quite interesting looking at other travellers mementoes hanging up around the restaurant and messages written on the walls and ceiling. Impressed with our... More

We went back a third time as Cactus was closed first for lunch at 12:30, then completely on a Wed. Although the flavors are good, the sauces are watery and the beef was tough. There are numerous better options.

Great choice when in Langkawi, great food, wide range of possibilities from Malaysian, Southeast Asian and western specialities. Very good ambience, as the place is very popular there's a lot of people, good music and very friendly and efficient staff. Very affordable prices.

Nice food in the southern end of Langkawi. The service was quick and the food both nice and reasonably priced. The restaurant is a few tables wide but quite deep so it is bigger inside than first appearances would suggest. The off-putting thing is the inside decoration with grotty flags and t-shirts hanging down, these also make the place darker.... More

Even tho little far away from the "Main Street" don't let the looks of the place fool you. Went there little bit after 7pm and place was almost full. The service is okay, little slow but the atmosphere is farm. We had two starters, sodas, beer, big bottle of water and two main = 70RM. Enjoyed our meal and def... More

We used Cactus twice during our five night stay in Langkawi, the location is great as it is just across the road from our hotel, Holiday Villa. Basic local restaurant however nothing else was basic, the food and the service were both excellent. One thing we found lacking in Langkawi was good service and a smile.... this was not the... More

After 7 weeks stay and maybe 60 visits to this lovely restaurant, we really love this place. Breakfast every day from 8 AM to 1 PM (lots of choices) and dinner from 4 PM to 11 PM (Wednesdays closed). Lip, Fika, Liu and the whole crew serves you dinner in a relaxed friendly way. Seafood, chicken, beef, spaghetti, Asian, European... More

Visited during the honeymoon after seeing the reviews here on TripAdvisor. We were worried since the place was mostly tourists, but it's definitely worth the hype. The hosts were great and the food was cheap. We started with spring rolls, then shared the fried fish with rice and sauteed vegetables. For drinks, we both had an apple-flavored cider. All the...
