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.

Went for two breakfasts and loved the ambiance, food was really good, an original club sandwich was thoroughly enjoyed, a bit expensive but worth it...

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

What is it with Americans and restaurants here in Tulum? We Europeans don't want to eat anywhere before 2000 at the earliest, and some other close- by restaurants are taking about waiting lists for 3rd sittings (!)
Thankfully this is not the case with Casa Banana; food ( both meat and fish) was great, staff attentive and knowledgeable, and prices good: our 2nd visit this week & very happy to return again!

“Casa Banana is a MUST when you visit Tulum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I've been here a few times over several visits. I've had both dinner and breakfast here. The food is consistently great. Their portions are big too. I've never left hungry.

“High Quality Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We walked here for a casual late lunch during our vacation. I had heard it was really good from a friend and I was not disappointed. The lemonade was cold, big and fresh. The service was very swift, we were one of two tables. My husband ordered the burger which was really good, lots of cheese, crisp ham and tomato and onions. I ordered the calamari salad which was really yummy, probably the best I have ever had, it was on top of chunky guacamole which I wish had some more romaine (more of a salad to balance it out) but was still really good. I would definitely good back again for dinner.

“great service and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

This place had great sandwiches and salads for lunch (yes you can eat a salad at this place without worry). Its is very pricy but so is everything on the beach.

We also ate breakfast here everyday since it was included with our hotel room. The servers were very nice and were even helping us with our spanish.
