Myself and my partner dined at Cactus Jacks as it looked like a nice spot. The nice decorations couldn't make up from the disinterest we experienced from the staff. On ordering, my partner asked 3 times if the Fluatas were vegetarian as it had the...More

Really enjoyed lunch here. Service was brilliant. Our waiter kindly pointed us towards the best and most filling tapas when ordering. 3 tapas for €10. My girlfriend and I shared 6 and we were very full and impressed walking out. Recommend

This used to be a fallback for our group of friends when we couldn't decide on a place to eat in the city, mainly because of the early bird special. The food is decent, nothing special. The fajhitas are great, that's probably the best choice...More

Down at the back of the restaurant there are a couple of tables to fit a buggy, but it can be a squeeze to get there but grand. And there's loads of baby seats :-)
