We visited on a very quiet thursday evening. There were only 3 other tables of people in the restaurant and it was very quiet. There was a slight chill in the restaurant - it could have done with a little warmth. The lady serving us appeared to be the owner - very pleasant and friendly, however she wasn't particularly good... More

Visited on a Saturday night, the restaurant was very quiet but somehow the staff were still unable to cope. It took half an hour for our order to be taken, in this time we weren't even offered a drink. Starters took a further 45 minutes to arrive, and main courses were another 45 minutes. The food was fine, but actual... More

We were the ONLY customers...awkward!!! Starter: OK. Main course: OK. Pudding?..I came especially for the churros but, apparently, the 'chefs, (really!!) had gone so they weren't available. So don't advertise them at lunchtime you *************. Totally gutted. PATHETIC. Don't bother: Ruined my Birthday: thanks

Popped in for our first time on 19th November for lunch. It really was excellent. Not at all a "run of the mill" Mexican, this has excellent and interesting dishes on an inexpensive lunch menu. The chap waiting was very friendly and told us a lot about the place, letting me (a man) in the Ladies to see their infinity... More

I visited with a friend on a Friday evening having booked a table (which I would recommend as it was very busy). Unfortunately it took an hour to be seen to to place our food order... There was a very large 21st birthday party in at the same time, and I think they were struggling to keep up. When the... More

It's a shame a have to give cactus jacks a bad review because the food is really good. I've been before as a couple and the place was empty and we got all round good service. However I recently went as a party of 10 with the restaurant not overly busy, but not dead, and the service was awful. We... More

We went here on a Friday night for the first time in ages. Lovely restaurant, very busy (booking recommended), great atmosphere and very good service. The food is delicious. I had the prawn starter which not only tasted amazing but was beautifully presented. It looked so irresistible and scrummy and tasted as good as it looked. I also had the... More

We visited Cactus Jacks for a family birthday and were required to preorder as there were 10 of us attending. When we arrived the table was ready and we were seated, about 30 minutes after we were seated the starters arrived. I personally had chosen not to have one as I didn't want to fill up, everyone ate and we... More

Despite the Food being extremely nice the service was shocking. Ages to take our order. At least 40 minutes to wait for our food and to hear the waitress swearing at kitchen staff was not nice. Not once visited our table to see if everything was ok. Despite living in salisbury and liking Mexican food I WILL NOT EVER return... More
