Great Mexican food near our Waikiki Vacation Rentals
Posted by Unknown | Monday, October 6, 2014

Finally I found a restaurant that serves Mexican food that is so delicious and unique plus it supports local farmers and growers with a true Farm to Table philosophy.  It's called Cactus Bistro and it's in Kailua, just a short drive from our Waikiki Vacation Rentals.   It's located at 767 Kailua Rd, Kailua, Hi. 96734.  They are open 7 days a week but breakfast is only served on Saturdays and Sundays starting at 7am.  Lunch starts at 11am and Happy Hour starts at 3:30pm and ends at 5:30pm.  Dinner is served until 10pm.  There's a parking lot with an entrance off the road to the side of them or if you enter the small shopping complex where they are located drive around to the back to see all the spots you can use.

I went twice in the past couple of weeks and luckily for me it was still Happy Hour.  I got a cold draft beer for only $2.00 and then had the house made chips and guacamole with 3 sauces for $10.00 which was so big that it could easily serve 4 people.  Then I had a chorizo and potato taco for $2.00 which took about 8 bites to finish because it was so large.  We also shared some mussels in a yummy spicy sauce with toasted garlic french bread to dip in the sauce.  Yum!

I recently found out they won Diner's Choice 2014 with Open Table and a Honolulu Magazine's Hale Aina Award for Best Mexican restaurant 2014.  They definitely deserve it because you can really taste how fresh the ingredients are.  While dining you can watch the chefs in action since they have a completely open kitchen with a bar area and seating so you can be just inches away.  It's a great family friendly restaurant to stop in after a day at Kailua Beach or shopping in the area.  It will take about 25 minutes to drive there from our Waikiki Banyan, Royal Kuhio, or any of our other Vacation Rentals.  Bon A petite!
