Located in the best area of downtown (“El Centro”), Bandoneon is a wonderfully elegant, contemporary restaurant – making it a favorite of locals, and tourists alike. Our menu is designed to satisfy everyone. Each selection is prepared with the finest ingredients and highest quality standards. A special Charcoal Grill provides the perfect flavor to our meat and fish. To complement your food, we recommend that you try one of our fine wines imported from “La Argentina”.

BEST TUNA TARTAR IN MEXICO IN A GREAT STEAK HOUSE !

No doubt Bandoneon´s Tuna Tartar is a signature dish, ranked top of it´s class around Cancun and Mexico. Food is excellent but wines selection match just perfect.

Amazing octopus salad, big chunks of mollusk, as well as ripped tomatoes and avocado! Nicely served drinks, great service, fish and meat are usually cooked to perfection and very good desert. And of course, expect to get a bill to go with the very good kitchen and service! Ambiance is ok. But everything else will flow so nicely that you... More

This was our first time to have a meal at Bandoneon in Downtown Cancun. Whether in the States or in Mexico this was the best meal either of us have ever eaten. The steaks we ordered were perfect. However you want your steak cooked, that is how it is served. It is still hot sizzling on a metal griddle plate.... More

We wanted to treat some friends to a wonderful meal and, we were not disappointed when we chose Bandoneon. Captain Jose was the perfect host and he was right on point in overseeing our dining experience. The food was outstanding but it was the SERVICE that was the highlight of our visit!! Absolutely EXCEPTIONAL service!!

My boyfriend and I tried Bandoneon while in Cancun last week, and it was an unforgettable experience. The atmosphere is beautifully inviting, and set the tone for what was to follow. Service is attentive and gracious without ever being intrusive. Capt Jose went above and beyond to insure our satisfaction, not only with our dinner, but even to make sure... More

Every dollar you will spend here is worth it. The place, the service, the food, the price. It might look expensive at first sight but in the end you will realize it is quite reasonable for what you get.

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
