Description: 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.

“#1 Restaurant in Tulum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Every time we come to Tulum we can't help but eat here almost every night. Each dish we have tried has been abundant and absolutely delicious! The steaks and chorizo are better than most steak houses we have dined at around the world. The seafood, including the whole fish, is incredible!
The managers are always eager to please the customers. They are passionate about every plate they serve.
The prices are comparable to the other restaurants in Tulum, but the difference with Casa Banana is that you never leave hungry!
The fact that this is not one of the top rated restaurants is a crime!!

“Maybe a one off but herendous service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

Went here after reading reviews. Great concept of restaurant and nice food. Bit over priced but looked nice so didn't mind.
Service was the worst iv ever seen. Waiter ignored us for ages. Then finally asked for out drinks order. Bought bread to table. When asked for butter - didn't arrive until after main course. Then when wanting another drink he walke past us without omit back. Had to complain to manager. It's the service you expect when paying more than the going rate.

“Like chicken fat?'”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

Just came back from paying $30 a plate for skewers of chicken fat, almost no meat whatsoever.

Very expensive plate that just went into the garbage.
