We’ve been to cactus jacks a number of times for both the early bird menu and the evening menu and cannot fault any of the food.
The front of house manager is extremely pleasant to deal with as are all of the staff.
The food and cocktails are fantastic and the service for such a busy restaurant is extremely fast and efficient.
I look forward to my next visit to cactus jacks

The restaraunt didnt have our booking. They fit us in but downstairs was very noise and cramped meaning my dather had to take out his hearing aids which meant we couldnt talk much as he couldnt hear me. Upstairs would have been much better to sit. Its was calmer up there.

Food was delicious! The service wasn't great. I felt we were left abandoned by the waiters because we had the voucher.

The starters were overly priced and very small portion sizes. Our mains where ok but we would not return.

The staff are really friendly and helpful. The early bird menu is fantastic value and the food is always of the highest quality. They never have any problem facilitating dietary requirements to the best of their ability. It can be a bit loud sometimes but overall the atmosphere is great.

Food poor quality. Ordered 3 tapas and mains to be served together but mains didn't arrive until we asked afterwards. Service poor. Was told we had to be out by 5pm.

I ordered the pulled pork soft tacos. Pork was inedible. Made me gag when i took a bite. Very dry and food was cold. We ordered a side of chips and never got them and they tried to charge us for them. I also got a strawberry daquiri and the glass was filthy. Couldnt get the waiters attention. 50 euor we spent and 90% of food was left on the plates

Overall, it was perfectly fine, but nothing particularly special. The food was a mixed bag. The Mexican fare - the fajita chicken and beef, and the chilli that comes with the nachos - was delicious and really flavoursome. But the more standard dishes - the chips and chicken tenders - were of incredibly low quality. The latter dishes were closer to catering food, or even store bought oven food, rather than something you'd get in a restaurant. The waiters were perfectly pleasant.

Very average food, felt more like a fast food place than a restaurant.

Staff are so lovely – friendly and efficient; they really looked after us without being intrusive. The Early Bird was terrific value – the food was plentiful, great quality and all washed down with a bottle of the Italian house red – which was only €12 during early bird time (and tasted pretty decent too). If you want good atmosphere, tasty Mexican food and a a reasonably priced tipple then look no further!
