Fabulous singer, Michelle

What an exciting place to dine or just have drinks. Michelle is an outstanding singer. We told several people at our hotel to go listen to her. And they enjoyed her as much as we did. The food was very good as well.

We liked the service and came back again for dinner with my son... More

Bandidos is an excellent place to stop for a beer after fishing, for the guys to sit and wait while the girls shop, or for a fabulous you catch/they cook meal. I'd swear they have the coldest beer around, and many of their waiters are fluent in English for anyone in need of information. The table-side prepared guacamole is fantastic... More

It’s not custom for us eating at the same restaurant more than once as we did on three restaurants during our stay in Zihua. But we did, and Banditos’ was one of them. The reason is simply. Two of the restaurants served that good food it was too hard not to visit them again. Banditos’ was one of them. The... More

skirt steak recommended and it was just awful! sometimes not sure if the right dish is delivered as it appears different than whats on the menu and due to the language barrier hard to determine. good margaritas, salsa made at the table, husband had the sesame crusted tuna which was excellent. would try again and order the tuna

Awesome food, good selection of wine and spirits. Friendly bilingual staff. Well delivered and presented. In the heart of the shopping district and not far from the beach. We went back for seconds and thirds. Handy spot to take a break from shopping and have a cold one too.

I was not happy with the food or the service. I will not return and recommend looking for somewhere else to spend your money. The waiter recommended a beef pot and I could not finish my meal
