We had such a surprise in Cancun. There were a variety of reviews for Bandoneon. We wanted red meat for part of us and seafood for the rest. Therefore an Argentinean steakhouse that also has seafood specials sounded good although maybe risky. Our meal was wonderful. The server, Mena, helped us make selections from the appetizers to the dessert. Sweetbreads,... More

Went for family dinner and all went very well. The place is such a nice plane to be, the service is quite good and the food is as nice as the service. The menu says the meat is "prime" but I disagree, because however is good, isn't near to be a as u.s.d.a prime. But the prices are right for... More

If you liked Cambalache and Puerto Madero then you are going to love Bandoneon. Located in downtown, south of the Mall of the Americas across the street from the American hospital. This is another must do restaurant. You can't get a bad dinner here. This is for the most part a locals restaurant with locals prices, now I am not... More

As Americans coming to Cancun for nearly 20 years - we've had the opportunity to dine at many fine restaurants. One we keep coming back to year after year is Bandoneon! The service is impeccable and the food unmatched. You can't go wrong with any beef selection and we love the provoleta! We have celebrated Thanksgiving here with family for... More

There are so many choices in the area, so I have always missed this one. The good is very good to excellent and they had some of my favorites including sweet breads and octopus. They steaks were also very good. We were a table of 10 and shared many appetizers and all very very good. It is a bit pricey... More

Tried bandoneon for a business meeting and was very please with the entire experience. Rare now in Mexico they have a closed off enclosed patio for smokers which is a very nice touch. Cesar salad is freshly prepared at the table. Food was very good and service was also top notch. I highly recommend.

I'm new to offering reviews; and being cynical-of-mind, I look forward to the opportunity to warn others of places not to go. This is NOT that review! As an American, I have been in Cancun for more than five years and have had the luxury of visiting many of the city’s finer restaurants. There is no doubt some well-established dining... More

Every time I dine here the service is great the staff is friendly and food is consistsntly good. My favorite appetizers are the mixed sashimi and mollejas. The whole fish plater is always fresh. The steaks are good and the soufflé potatoes are birds nest style in a potato sticks basket and they are to die for.

We met some friends who live in Cancun at this restaurant, which is outside the hotel zone, near the Malecon las Americas. About a $20 cab ride from our hotel, but well worth it. Argentinian steakhouse which also specialized in seafood, some with an Asian twist, we were the only tourists there, it was all locals and thus, much better... More
