We've been going to Bandido's multiples times each trip to Zihua for several years. The food is always well prepared, the margarita's are excellent, and the staff consists of a great group of friendly and fun people. The menu has a great selection, and it's a great place to hangout, eat, drink, and watch some football.

It seemed everybody we met/ran into raved about Banditos. While it is centrally located across the street from the artisan market, and its a cute open air venue, in our opinion the food and the service were only so-so. Sorry boys and girls its just another Zijuatanejo restaurant and it does not stand out nor have anything special, unique, or... More

Traditionally the service and food has always been superb . But during off season the service was extremely poor, the food was delicious as always. One ? , why does Mexico insist on always over cooking vegetables. It would be lovely if they did not turn them into baby food.

Food was very good and service... More

This place is very good with attentive staff, good food and a vivacious singer named Michelle. The location is great for people watching in el centro. We had fabulous deserts. Michelle is an engaging singer with a wonderful voice and she takes requests. She is there frequently even in the quiet season but check with staff for her schedule to... More

Could be considered a "sports" bar as they have televisions around the entire restaurant! Service good and lots of food choices. Food portions huge, come with an appetite!
