Great atmosphere and menu variety, Steak was not bad and pepper sauce enjoyable. Recommend the pineapple juice. Service was slow.

They deliver all over the Ikoyi and VI/Lekki areas. Delivery is prompt and reliable. The salad are simple but large and filling using good quality ingredients. I will use them again.

I adore the club sandwiches and salads here. Cactus is a constant that's been around for a while. It's located Don Ozumba Mabadiwe Road in Victoria Island and easy to find. They have a wide array of delicacies and you will be lost for choice.

Colleagues ordered their cake and based on word of mouth reviews, I expected a fantastic out of the world melting in mouth kinda cake only to be hit by just a regular red velvet and chocolate cup cake.

Interesting coffee shop and bistro. Portions are large and generous, fresh and tasty. Service not great and slightly inattentive... Some of best salads in town...

They have a good restaurant, great ice-cream and cakes. The red velvet cake we got for Valentines was a bit of a let down from what i know Cactus to be. It was so dry. We were very disappointed. Do not let this stop you from trying it out,it was just a one time thing. They are actually pretty good.... More

Nice and calm atmosphere next to the lagoon. I enjoyed sitting outside with a friend for a number of hours. Service was on time and pleasant meal. The chips was just the way i like it and salad was just right. If anything could be done about the mosquitoes outside in the evening, it would be appreciated but just a... More

My wife and I have been frequent visitors to Cactus over many years. We find the place friendly and 'cool'. Of late we have become fond of sitting at the seating arrangements next to the Lagos Lagoon. The relaxed environment and the cool breeze is relaxing. The sound of water hitting on the shores is refreshing. We go there by... More
