Romantic Dinner

Romantic dinner at casa banana! We had the fresh ceviche, the calamari salad, and the grilled skirt steak. Everything was super fresh and flavorful. Great spot for dinner!

This place ticks all the boxes, great food, inviting atmosphere tasty drinks and lovely service. The four of us sat for over 2 hours ordering food and bottles of sav blanc and cocktails, or waiter was helpful and attentive, we were not moved on or hurried (conveyor belt style) like the restaurant next door. The menu is fresh,edgy and unbelievably... More

A great atmosphere with open air dining. Great cocktails and delicious foods. We had the Goat Cheese & Asparagus salad, the Flank Streak and the Lamb Risotto. All of them excellent.

Not a big fan, felt the prices were expensive for such meaty dishes yet I'm not a big fan, I love more fresh dishes to go with the heat. They have a nice wine selection though and I was told the meaty dishes were delicious. Didn't order dessert which is not a good sign for me. Our table was so... More

We liked Casa Banana so much we ate dinner there twice. The atmosphere was enticing, the food wonderful and the service just perfect. Based on our palate: Best drink - Tangerine Martini, Best Salad - beet w/ goat cheese, Best Dinner - we mixed flank steak with arugula caesar salad. Can't wait to go back.

We always enjoy the included breakfast here, but this time we also had an amazing dinner. The service is always very helpful and the food is very good. The prices are good considering the great service and atmosphere.

this restaurant is a must for peole who are fans of steakhouses. THIS IS the steakhouse of Tulum in it's unique way. IT offers great steaks and meats as well as fishes but with a twist. Furthermore the ambiance is awesome. It's most of the time crowded.

Good meat and an amazing environment, we have to wait a little to get a table as the restaurante was full but it was worth the wait, we had a good menu of options and we decided to have a starter that would give us a nice flavour of the meat and than we went for an amazing salad with... More

We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Casa Bananna. The service was wonderful. It's such fun to sit and watch the open kitchen as the food is being prepared.

Everything was excellent. Staff was nice and the skewers were delicious. Pricey but worth it. Even my picky 13 year old was happy. Bring bug spray. This is not on the water, so you don't get the breeze. Cool atmosphere
