The service is attentive and the food very good. A place for business lunch or dinner as it is not romantic at all since the lighting is super bright at night. Regretably, there is a large smoking section separated from main dining space by automatic glass doors, which do not seal and are constantly open, so the disgusting cigarette smoke... More

We went for a late lunch and shared the chorizo appetizer, some empanadas, fresh rolls & breadsticks and the Lamb Ossobuco with risotto and mushrooms. Everything was excellent. Service was attentive. We would go back again and again.

Bandoneon is a favourite restaurant of mine, due to the location (downtown Cancun) and quality / price. The service is usually very good, and the food is always good, I usually share a fillet (lomo) with my wife, this time however, she had the Salmon (she said it was delicious!) and I decided to share a "Bandoneon Rib Eye" with...

My wife and I live in Valladolid, Yucatan, but travel to Cancun frequently for a number of reasons. On June 1, 2016, we wanted to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary by doing something special. I grew up in Nebraska and my wife grew up in Iowa, so we agreed that a great steak would be a wonderful way to celebrate.... More

Wine selection is first rate. Atmosphere is great. We loved the fact that we could have a relaxed conversation while dining. We also found the prices to be very reasonable... More
