Didn't know how this would be, as part of a large chain, but the wife liked the vibe and location. Kind of hipsterish with louder music, black-clad younger staff and low lighting. I had the salmon, about which I was hesitant- I'm a salmon fisherman and usually picky about getting line-caught instead of farm-raised salmon. But, this was very good... More

We were staying at the Hyatt just 2 minutes walk up the road so this was nice and close after a day sightseeing. It was a busy restaurant but buzzing with atmosphere without being crowded or rushed. The first thing to impress me was the cleanliness - spotless! We had a pleasant drink whilst waiting for a table, the service... More

Cactus Bentall is an ideal place for a business lunch. It's quiet enough to have a business meeting but also busy enough to people watch. The food is good. Try the bacon cheddar burger

For two decades now, I've usually stuck with the Cactus Club fajitas for the entire but a buddy of mine suggested the Cajun Blackened chicken and yes, it's an amazingly delicious dish. Giving the dining experience a 5 out of 5 mainly because this dish is a winner!

Came here after a long day of exploring Stanley park and was blown away. Our waitress was delightful and so friendly. I ordered a Bellini and the pesto chicken quesadilla with yam fries. It was amazing! My coworkers both ordered two different salads and they both said that they were some of the greatest salads they have ever had. The... More

I don't give 5 points to this wonderful restaurant because the music was so, so, so loud that it was impossible to talk to my friends. But the food was great, all we tried was really yummy! I would bring 1000000 kgs of this wonderful mashed potato purée that you use there... Btw, all waiters/waitresses look like models, I'm not... More

This is the Cactus Club on Dunsmuir Street (as well - same same). Perfect in every way. Food, something for everyone, music and ambience, cozy, kid friendly, good service, and awesome awesome blood orange margaritas. We loved it so much - the kids insisted on dining here 3 x and once at the one at English Bay in a 2.5... More

Good evening vibe, pretty standard chain eats that is well done. My steak was a tad underdone. The wine is horrendously overpriced. The pretty young ladies that do the service are always a delight...

Any chain restaurant is going to have its downsides -- formulaic menus, for example. But Cactus Club, when visited occasionally, does offer good variety and a decent dining experience. This particular venue can be quite loud, so if attending at a busy time, be sure to expect difficult small talk. Joined two colleagues for a late lunch. We were seated... More

Upon arrival we were told it was a 30-40 minute wait. They actually sat us in a nice booth after only about 20 minutes. Front house staff was pleasant but everyone seemed a little frantic as there were many very large groups that night. After being sat the evening went downhill. Our waiter couldn't even be bothered to stay in... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
