Located on Cinco De Mayo street, the main local merchant shopping street, this restaurant was perfect. Americanized type sportsbar, with big screen tv's. We watched the World Cup games from this spot. Very delicious food. Their shrimp tacos are to die for. Great service. Most waiters speak great English.

This is a nice "street-view" restaurant that has Mexican & seafood specialties, music and sports TV. The waiters are fun and friendly, the service good and they make salsa, to your taste at your table. We had chicken fajitas and the flavors of all the fixins' were fantastic. Definitely a good place to enjoy a meal or some drinks.

Band at night, lots of people watching, if you go for drinks only they shove you up next others like you so you don't waste valuable dining space

Guy at hotel recommended this, and told us if you have a reservation you get 10% off. That was a good tip because i was a bit more expensive. They make salsa by your table,and it was pretty good food. Near marina.

We left after a michelada and some guacamole. No too bad, but the menu was lacking. All of the fish options had tuna...yuck. Why would I want a fish taco with tuna? Other than that nothing stood out as a good option, so we left for another restaurant down the road and had a great meal there. A good location... More

My wife and I have been in Zihuat for almost 3 weeks. We have been to Bandido's three times now. The staff we have met are now like friends. We met server Andy on our first trip. He shared many of his life's adventures with us, which are quite remarkable. It is fun going in and feeling appreciated and treated... More

Nice place to eat, food was very good, we shared the Seafood Soup, and it was awesome, highly recommend this dish. Atmosphere was good. It was Saturday evening, but the singer took the night off. I would go back for sure

Food was good overall, street side atmosphere energetic. However, the salsa blew us away. Made table side, it was the perfect blend of flavors. Delicious - we make our own salsa and I grew up in SE Texas, and this was by far, the best we had ever eaten.
