We stopped here for diner while visiting Tulum and found the place charming. I had the ceviche and my wife the Argentinian steak sandwich both were excellent and the price reasonable.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Casa Banana. The restaurant setting is beautiful with an open kitchen. Note: They accept cash only so bring pesos because they do not give you a favorable exchange rate if you pay with US DOLLARS. Highly recommend.

No. Only cash. They have an ATM in front but I am told they charge high fees so wouldn't go that route. Best bet would be to change to pesos in downtown Tulum and pay with that as exchange is very favorable right now.

Located across the beach road from Nueva Vida is Casa Banana Steakhouse, a Tulum dining hot spot. Serving up classic Argentinian style cuisine, the food here is simple, fresh and delicious. For breakfast each morning enjoy made to order coffee, homemade banana bread, and pineapple coconut jam. At night the restraurant gets busy and comes alive with it’s outdoor grill, known as “parilla,” and dishes are cooked over the open fire for all to see. The menu favorites include grilled to perfection steak, fresh caught fish, impressive salads, and a thoughtfully selected wine list. Don’t forget to try the handshaken icy margaritas, too.Open daily breakfast, lunch and dinner. We provide beach service for all guests of the hotel.
