Great location in centro

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... read 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

We stopped in at Bandido's for a margarita when walking around Zihua and enjoyed the rest and the service. We found the people in Zihua very nice and accomodating and Bandido's was no exception. Their facilities were clean and well-tended and overall it was a nice spot to stop and rest and sit and observe the church and locals as... More

I would highly recommend this restaurant, and would go back anytime! The fresh salsa and guacamole made at the table were the best I've eaten (and I've had more than my share!). The atmosphere is authentic, and welcoming. Location near the market, as well as the Town Square. We visited on a Sunday night and were able to enjoy some... More

This Restaurant bar is well located across from the artisinal market area in downtown Zihua. They have live music and the salsa is prepared at table side. They also have great Camarones

This is a tough place to rank. Yes you go to eat and you want great food, fabulous service and a local flare. Bandido's comes close on all accounts and it is open Monday nights. To be a purist I have to say this is more a bar with good food than a great restaurant with good music. The shrimp... More

So nice to go to a place in Mexico, off the resort, feel the ocean breeze and enjoy some really good food and drinks with friends. To go where your presence is not begged but appreciated. They bought us a drink when we were done...

We went to this place based on a review from a guy we met from Alberta at the Condo complex we were staying at. They have live music, service is great. Everything we ordered was really good as were the drinks. Music is a little loud but fun. Pasta, steaks, salads and seafood were really good.
