Outstanding service, good food and fun atmosphere. We liked our lunch so much we returned for dinner later in the week. It is a favorite of our friends that have a place there and I can see why. We will return.

The food and service was wonderful. Loved the salsa dancing entertainment! Taxi's wait right out front to take you back to your resort. Easy to get to and in a good location. The large bowls were scrumptious and enough for the whole table to share.

We ate here twice during our recent visit to Zihuatanejo. The salsa made at the table is the bomb. Shrimps in Love and the pasta were excellent.

4 of us had dinner tonight. My ribs were cold on inside, a friends baked potato was cold, and the molcajete was way too spicy. Some type of peppers they put in it was wow. If you want a place for a beer and catch...More

We dropped in to try out Bandido's and were pleasantly supprized. The waitress made us fresh salsa to have with the chips. We ordered the octopus tacos and shrimp tacos on small blue corn tortillas and it was great. We both loved it along with...More
