There were staff missing from the kitchen the night we were there so hopefully that was the reason for the disappointing food and slow service. Would not recommend this restaurant and won't be back, however.

We were three for lunch today. The chips, salsa and guacamole were delicious as were our drinks. The service is excellent. The Quesadilla with chicken and fresh spinach is VERY good and the portions very generous. Their crispy shell beef tacos were a perfect starter.

Cactus Rose is an amazing romantic place that serves great Margaritas and delicious entrees and appetizers! The salmon with the zucchini risotto and doll sauce was amazing, the salad was dressed perfectly and the calamari was perfectly fried! Can't wait to go back!

If you don't like Mexican, that's OK! This restaurant has a Mexican feel but you can get food that is Not. Lovely outdoor terrace in Summer & Fall. Food is a little pricey but very good. I like to go there for special Occasions and...More

You feel like you are in Mexico with the great food drinks and outdoor patio While there is no view the fireplace adds so much! Great happy hour as well
