Ok right off the top … we heard this place was ace … drove up from Hobart and yes we weren’t disappointed. The food is worthy of more than five stars … and the service exceptional. The risk of a review like this of course runs the risk of not ever getting a reservation again .. because you come here too and discover it for yourself. And on top of all of that … it’s really great value for money… The Prickly Cactus is a winner… find out for yourself!! You won’t be disappointed
Highly recommend this restaurant, the food was delicious, staff were very friendly and the service was outstanding. I would recommend booking a table just so your not disappointed. Definitely would go back again.
After a weekend away in Hobart we came back to Launceston. My love of seafood had been fulfilled down there so my partner booked us in for Mexican at the Prickly Cactus. What a place! Started out with some margaritas which were absolutely delicious. Then a selection of entrees and mains. The food was hot, fresh and tasted delicious. Very filling, we were discussing dessert at the start but just couldn't fit it in we were so full. Super friendly and super nice. Will definitely come back again.
Always a super quick greeting, friendly smiles, great service. They have a good wait time for food considering how busy they can get. The fish bowls are a great cocktail on special between 530pm and 730pm from memory. All meals I've ordered have been a good size, quality food, and well presented. So far there's nothing I wouldn't recommend on their menu. The nachos of course is a classic and an enormous serve which is also pleasing to the eye haha.
The prickly cactus is one of my more favourite restaurants in Launceston and I high recommend stopping buy. Bookings are preferred as with most restaurants.
Remember. Nachos and fish bowl cocktails! ❤️
We dined here on our trip from Adelaide, very tasty food, filling and reasonably priced, plus they gave us a free bowl of chips to enjoy with our lunch.
Great service, would highly recommend👍
