Cactus Restaurant & Cafe
This spot is very popular with tourists, especially Germans staying nearby, as the friendly staff speaks fluent German and make the guests feel very much at home. Added attractions are the monkeys roaming in the backyard that provide good entertainment while waiting for your order. The ambience is simple and casual with 1960s and contemporary background music. Striking features are the crafts and furniture handmade from mangrove trunks. However, despite the name do not expect to see any cactus here. The menu features Asian delights, barbecue and fresh seafood. Check out the daily specials displayed at the entrance.
We stayed also in Holliday Villa and in our package the breakfast wasn't included and if we had breakfast there it was very expencive! So a local gave us the tip to go to the cactus restaurant across the street! We really loved having breakfast there! They have fresh cusine for every taste! Especially the stuff is really friendly!! We will come back!! :)
The food was fantastic and very, very reasonably priced. The staff were outstanding and gave wonderful service. Can highly recommend it. We'd definitely go back there again. For 5 people breakfast was about 60rng.
First and foremost, I would like to say that I went to Cactus Restaurant for dinner for 2 nights in a row when I was in Langkawi. A friend brought us there and told us not to be deceived by the rundown exterior of the restaurant, Indeed, from the outside, the restaurant looked pretty shabby and neither me nor my family had any great expetations. However, from the moment the owner came and took our orders, we felt his enthusiasm and we knew that we were there for something great. The accompanying music selection proved that the owners know a thing or two about how to create a soothing ambience for their guests. The food is fantastic and the service is just friendly. We ordered food ranging from local to western and all of them were way beyond our expectation. The owners also took their time to talk to their patrons and entertained the kids with their juggling acts. Anyway, as I heard, the people who run the restaurant are different for lunch and dinner. Therefore, it is only fair for me to comment on the dinner and not for the lunch.
We are still here till tommorow and guess were we will go for breakfest ...THE CACTUS...It is right across the road from the holiday villa langkawi...Everything is worth the wait although that is not long very fresh food great service and excellent price .The staff are allways pleasent and its a fantastic dinning experience weather it be dinner or breaky LOVE IT I will def be back in the coming years VERY CHILD FRIENDLY TOOO ....5 stars ...
Having recently visited Langkawi and stayed in the hotel opposite The Cactus, my husband and fellow travellers dined atThe Cactus and enjoyed every meal we ate, breakfast/evening meal. The food great, prices very good. We would certainly like to return in the future. 10/10
I went to this restaurant in last April for breakfast with my husband. We both ordered beef burgers.orange juice and hot chocolate. They served the drinks quite fast but waited for ages for the burgers even it was only 2 of us.
They called the orange juice as "fresh orange juice" but it tasted like squad orange juice mix with some fresh orange juice, that was cheeky!
Our burgers finally arrived! The first bite of the burger tasted like cheap minced beef it was ok for me because I was hungry but the second bite makes me feel sick because it was some hard bits in the burger that feel like bone! My husband's burger was the same. We tried to speak to the staff about it but they ignored us so my husband walked to the counter to make a complaint, the Malay guy tried to convince my husband that the burger is good quality burger and very expensive I then asked "why good quality burger has bone in it"? he ignored my questions and show me the frozen burgers from a fridge and tell me " see this is Rambly burgers and its very expensive" We can't be bothered to argue with them and didn't finish the breakfast and leave.When we are leaving two Malay women actually talking some Malay language behind our back and one of them spit loud behind us! On the next day we went to a supermarket in Kuah we saw "Ramly" burgers in the frozen department it was only rm6.50 for 10 pieces of burgers! It was so obvious we've been served low quality burgers with bones in it We will never ever go back! Any parents with young children have to be careful with what you order for your children.
As mentioned by Angela, my friend, all the hype about this place brought us to the place. If we had known we would be spending at least 45 minutes for the food to arrive, we would have given it a pass. The worst thing is being ignored by the waitresses!! Somehow, just cannot remember how the food tasted because of the sour treatment we received!!
I seriously wonder whats all the fuss....well,maybe the service was much better years ago..but my friend and I was just there last weekend..and I basically saw many, many frustrated faces. Yes, fast in providing the menu. Drinks were given fast as well maybe to pacify customers since the food took ages. To top it off, the orders were not in order. Some people who came later got their food first. I mean, even to give our orders, my goodness.....the waitresses just avoided making eye contact. Maybe because we were not white or foreign enough. I mean, we were greatly disappointed by the service. I mean so much hype about this place and this is what we got!!! Maybe the cafe is short-handed, the most the waitresses could do was to apologise and explain. And not leave the customers fuming. Buck up on your service or seriously there won't be any repeat customers.
Their FOOD! is like gorgeous :D we stayed in Holiday Villa in 2003/2004 (i forgot) and we visited cactus for most of our stays! SUPER friendly waitress and restaurant boss! and i really like the ambience of the restaurant! with Graffitis all over the walls and signatures of past customers who'd visited them! love their black pepper chicken rice :D
