Thought we would try Sunday night football here tonight. Service was very slow and at times non existent. Appetizers were very good, but our meal was very average, at best. Sorry! Lots of choices in Zihuatanejo, so will pass next time we are in town.

Wonderful evening at Bandidos! The "shrimp in love" was to die for and the tuna steak was cooked to perfection! We will be back!

Great spot for a late afternoon snack. The Octopus tacos are incredible. We came back a second time for them.

Touristy but solid place in town. The seafood molcajete was out of this world good and worth a trip. Also had a seafood pasta in wine sauce that was delicious. Very simply prepared but so good. The house salsa, made at the table, was perfect...More
