Le Cactus is predominately a bar, with wines, beers and cocktails. However, it is too noisy and a bit overpriced. But hey! It is Paris, after all.I found the loud, constant thumping noise inside unbearable. I could not wait to get outside. It may be music to some, but to me it is hideous noise.At least Le Cactus has a good location.

The waiter was super agressive, very bad service. The worst they charged us way much more than our order and then immediately treated us as thieves without even trying to understand. Finally when we redid the count, turns out we even paid more than we should've

While the location was nice, the service was awful and basically for a 400e bill we ended up paying 10% more (wrongly) and they were asking us for 80e more because they did not account for the previous paiements... This is insane and not suitable for a such a bar. Never again

Cute but deadly… The waiter, waltzing around in tiny shorts, was completely high and incompetent. And rude. Asked for a jasmine tea, he corrected me (“jus-min”), then offered a black tea instead - at 11:00 pm! Then said, “sorry” in the most pretentious voice and smiled. We just got up and left.Yet another heartwarming experience in Paris…

This place is terrible, don't bother. The food and drink were not good, and stuff is just overpriced for what it is.

Tucked away behind City Hall and Centre George Pompidou, is another busy Paris street. But this street is slightly better because on it sits Le Cactus....
