Excellent food and service, and music and dancing too. What more could a turista ask for?

Bandido's is great. Everything we ate was delicious. The service was super helpful and friendly and made our pitchers of margaritas to order. Plus, on a weekend night there was live music and dancing, and the wait staff generously danced with (led) us so that we could pretend like we were blending... read more

Great restaurant - really impressed with the fresh guacamole made at the table in front of you where you choose the strength of the chilli. Great vegetarian fare - all round good restaurant with good service.

We stopped in just for a quick snack (guar, chips, salsa) and were really impressed with great waitstaff and comfortable atmosphere. We really wanted to come back for dinner (they have live music all weekend), but were never able to squeeze it into our trip. We will on our next trip down for sure!

Quick stop after some shopping, nice clean place, good service and good fried fish. The best part is when they make salsa/pico right at your table, that was pretty cool.

We stopped here while doing some shopping. Food was pretty good with good service. Girl behind counter not overly nice at the register when we asked for change but server was super nice. Had a margarita which was average.

We were told this place had the best Molcajete and we were not disappointed. Live music at night and sports (for those that need to see the game). Walked past a couple of times while shopping at the centre market and it was always busy.

Bandido's has a great location in centro to take a break for lunch, dinner or a cooling refreshment. It is our go to spot when we want to relax from walk, shopping, or just because. The staff are super friendly. Need a sports fix? TVs aplenty to watch various teams at the same time. Live music (ask for the schedule... More

What can I say we had the quail, ribeye, bbq ribs, fajitas and all were delicious. As an additional blessing we had Michelle Lavalle busting out some tunes that had us up an dancing. Our meal was very economical and the service and food w as excellent.

We came to Bandido's in Zihua for the first time in January. I loved everything about it! Great location close to the market, inexpensive cab ride from almost anywhere or a nice walk along the beach. Not only were the staff and food wonderful, it just had that awesome vibe. We came to eat, drink and dance a few times... More
