Fantastic

This experience was great. The food was delicious and good sized portions. The service and entertainment was great. Staff were able to speak good English and were helpful in the decisions of our meals. Best of all it was immaculate!

We did not eat here, but the food looked great. I wasn't much for the live singer but people seemed to be having fun! I have to give credit to our server Jesus, he was great, we went for a drink one night and came back three days later and he remember us and what we like. He went out... More

Second time we have eaten here. Waiters speak English. Food was good, well priced and no complaints. Would eat here again and I'm sure we will.

We were delightfully surprised for lunch. we shared the seafood MOLCAJETE. Are you kidding me, huge and steaming with fresh tortillas and every type of yummy seafood. Wonderful service and great drinks. This place rocks on the weekends with Cuban (live) music on Saturdays and over wonderful live music. Very safe, and cabs stop by all night to take you... More

I go here for 2 things. 1) They make fresh salsa from roasted veggies at your table. 2) The chicken mocahete is quite unique and it is my favorite in this place. They always have fresh seafood, but the mocahete is the BEST! (Not sure about the spelling, but if it comes in a large lava rock bowl, you will... More

With a random stop for lunch we decided on Bandido's. Everything was, great, from the fresh made at the table salsa, to watching the staff enjoy being at work. We tried the molcajete, a wonderful mixture of cheese, chicken, onions, cilatro and tomato salsa with fresh made tortillas. Need a break while shopping in Zihua there is no better place.

Excellent salsa made at the table--fun to watch, great to eat. We had very good pulled pork tacos with Ensamble, one our favorite wines from the Guadalupe Valley--what a treat to find it on the wine list! The singer was good and a lot of fun. They handled our party of 14 easily.

We went to Zihuatanejo to do some shopping where the prices were reasonable and stopped at Bandido's to eat. Seating for our group of 10 was quick as was the service just as fast. The food was very good. The chips and dips before our meal were great. Good place to take a break. If I was helpful to you,... More

We visit Bandido's many time on our stay in Zihua. The staff is excellent and we love the singing and a chance to dance in the warm weather. There is no other place like this in Zihua. Come often and stay late.

We thought about eating dinner here but the live music singer was a little overpowering and distracting to allow for an enjoyable evening. This was too bad because we did have lunch here and the food was great. We ordered fish tacos with grilled pineapple -- so sweet -- and an avocado and shrimp salad -- mayo based but delicious....
