• Visitor Information

Cactus BlueThis likeable bar with two floors of restaurant above the noisy drinking area was an overpriced disaster when it opened, boasting seriously poor service, a smoky atmosphere and bad food that usually arrived cold. However, some sort of miracle appears to have happened - it's now one of our top recommendations for Mexican in the capital. The food is essentially Mexican with a few South American influences. Simple, honest but tasty fare is the order of the day, and although prices are still a little high they reflect the location in the heart of the King's Road area. Basically it appears that a new cook has come in and the staff have been properly trained up. A good bet for some high class Mexican in what is now a pleasant setting, and the bar downstairs is handy if you feel like dancing off a few pounds afterwards!

Notes:
Booking advised.
Separate room for parties.
Tables on patio.
Loud music downstairs.
