A Little History

About Cactus

Since 1990 we have been offering Seattle innovative Southwestern, Mexican and Spanish cuisine from our humble Madison Park restaurant, Cactus. Home to Seattle’s first tapas bar, we continue to innovate with seasonal menus, nightly specials and fresh cocktails.

In early 2002 we ventured east and opened our second restaurant in downtown Kirkland to great success. Realizing that proximity to large bodies of water was surely a good thing, we founded our third location right off Alki Beach in West Seattle. We set our sights on downtown Seattle in 2011 and opened a fourth location during the fall in the up-and-coming South Lake Union neighborhood. In 2013, we ventured east again and opened our largest location at Bellevue Square. Finally, in April of 2019, we opened in Tacoma’s wonderful Proctor neighborhood.

Join us for hand-crafted cocktails and the always exciting cuisines of the American Southwest and Mexico. We are not authentic, we are uniquely Cactus.
