One of the loveliest restaurants in Cancun! Every dining area is comfortable and family friendly, where whatever the age, you will feel right at home. The perfect place to enjoy a fine cut of meat, accompanied by a fine selection of wine, this restaurant will make you feel right at home! Enjoy the best Prime Cuts, Lamb, Suckling Pig and Fish, carefully prepared in our Charcoal Grill. Cambalache´s delicious menu is complete with “typical family recipes” in the purest fashioned Argentina. Soups, salads, side dishes, artisan breads are cooked at the moment to satisfy the most demanding palates.

Food is great here. Atmosphere is just right. We tried many places around Cancun and came back to only this one. Service is wonderful. David was a spectacular waiter as was the entire team. Have recommended to people at our resort while they stand asking concierge where to dine. Reasonably priced for the higher quality food. I pay this amount... More

Amazing meal start to finish. Gasper Guzman is great! (Server) We have been going once or twice a year to Cambalache and they never fail to please. From the bread to the fresh octopus appeitzer, to the carmel crepes and Irish Coffee it was all amazing. Tenderloin Cambalache is the best serving(s) of steak you can find anywhere.

Great steak, the taste just keeps on coming! This was one of the best I've ever had. Waiters pleasant but English not great. Nice look and feel to the restaurant.

This place came highly recommended by our daughter. In the middle of everything going on in the tourist area. Across the street from Señor frogs on the second floor of a mall. The service from Alfredo was excellent. We had steaks and lamb. Everyone was totally satisfied with their selection.

Back to Cancun and back to Cambalache and we are going back to do it again before going home. This is a great steak restaurant. We love the flavors and love the service and the price is very good based on what you get. Their prime steaks are absolutely delicious. My wife and I had the skirt steak for two.... More

Our last meal of our trip was the best. We went to Lorenzillos the night before (very good) but liked this meal better! Excellent steak, cheesecake was AMAZING. Great service from Alfonso! Thanks for a wonderful meal that ended our vacation on a high note!

The whole dinner experience from start to finish was exceptional. The food was very tasty and our steaks were done to perfection. So much plavor in all that we ordered. Our waiter (Gaspar) and our busboy (Eduardo) were very professional and extremely gracious. This dinner was such a wonderful experience!! Would definitely return to try something new from their menu!
