Located across the beach road from Nueva Vida is Casa Banana Steakhouse, a Tulum dining hot spot. Serving up classic Argentinian style cuisine, the food here is simple, fresh and delicious. For breakfast each morning enjoy made to order coffee, homemade banana bread, and pineapple coconut jam. At night the restraurant gets busy and comes alive with it’s outdoor grill, known as “parilla,” and dishes are cooked over the open fire for all to see. The menu favorites include grilled to perfection steak, fresh caught fish, impressive salads, and a thoughtfully selected wine list. Don’t forget to try the handshaken icy margaritas, too.Open daily breakfast, lunch and dinner. We provide beach service for all guests of the hotel.

We were in Casa Banana early Feb '16. The restaurant is outdoor, like all restaurants here, and very cosy. Cocktails and starters were great, main courses were good. Two at the table went for beef, which we wouldn't recommend : we learnt throuhgout our stay that generally red meat is better avoided in this area. There are so many great... More

We stumbled upon Casa Banana during our first night exploring the main strip and the lively atmosphere is what peaked our interest! It looked like a fun place with people enjoying themselves. We ate here the next night! There was a 45 minute wait (no reservations taken) and didn't mind because it was a night night and the bar was... More

Indulging in meaty Argentinian food was not what I had in mind while staying on the beach in Mexico, but Casa Banana was amazing. The service was great, setting very appealing and the food - wow, the food! Several days of mainly seafood meals made me appreciate the top notch meat, cooked brilliantly. Highly recommended. Make sure you get there... More

Once again Casa Banana was both the place we looked forward to and our fall back for dining during our 10 days in tulum. They have very efficient and professional service that keeps pace even as the restaurant swells to lines of guests waiting to get in. their drinks and wine list has you trying new things each time (and...

We shared the suckling pig, a beet salad and fried shrimp...all were delicious. Id say be careful of portions, as the starters were very big and we felt bad for wasting. Good wine list. Great cocktails. Fun atmosphere on the jungle side. They also have parking, which is a huge bonus, int he now very busy streets of Tulum.

We stayed right by Casa Banana at Neuva Vida de Ramiro, and immediately fell in love with the atmosphere and food they offer. Casa Banana captured our hearts so we wined and dined almost every day of our 6 days to Tulum. The service is friendly and the food is fresh and delicious. The cocktails are well made with top-shelf... More

We came here for dinner one night, food was excellent and steak was cooked to perfection! The calamari and fried while fish were delicious as well. The vibe is so cool inside. Can't wait to go back!
