My family & I have been visiting El Cactus for years now (dinner). Good food, good drinks. Be sure to have the provided mosquito coils next to you to prevent being bitten by mosquitos (during the night). Decent eating-out place in PD. -A-

The atmosphere is simple and you can have the outdoor and inside bar area. They have a simple cantina effect. The food is Mexican in a Malaysian twist. So, it was a delicious meal and it adds the unique dining in a less than exciting...More
