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.

We always like Bandido's . We go to Zihua often and when we are with friends who are there for their first time we go to Bandido's. It seems to be in everyones comfort zone. Mexican and touristy but It has good food, plenty of english speaking staff, TV for those special sports times. The food is consistently good! Good... More

It was early evening. We received a table beside the sidewalk and street. It is a busy location with bumper to bumper traffic beside the restaurant. A band started playing traditional local artist Mexican music and we finally received our meal. There was a considerable delay between our order and the arrival of the food. Perhaps it was geared to... More

It was a cool restaurant where it seemed mostly tourists ate. It was pretty overpriced and the food was just average.

The service is excellent which starts with the waitress making fresh salsa at your table in a molcajete. The food was great, lobster & stuffed squid; the drinks were served quickly. The lounge singer was singing in Spanish, English and French which was more quaint than entertaining.

We stopped by here one afternoon after visiting the market for a drink, big mistake. It's the only time in Zihuatanejo that I have ever gotten sick. Hadn't really eaten anything that day until we stopped here. Became incredibly ill in a couple of hours. We shared an appetizer and had a couple of margaritas. I should have known better... More

The food and people here are excellent! The entertainment is great. Go to cino de mayo street to spend time at the flea market and right across the street is Bandidos. 🌞🍸😃
