Our group was there when they had a lady singing. She was awesome. The food is wonderful, so are the drinks. Good place to people watch too. It's an open air restaurant.

We asked our taxi driver where a good place to eat would be when he dropped us off for a shopping tour of Zihuatanejo. ..which BTW is good to do anytime you travel. He told us "Bandido's" and we toasted him during the meal for his great advice. Having never been to 'Zihua' before, I would recommend this to any... More

I feel the restaurant is going down hill each year. The food is lacking to past years, and the service is gotten bad. I am not one that likes to write a bad review. Seems as the cater to the local friends

Very good service and excellent food. Waiters make fresh salsa at the table for you which was kind of fun and different. Drinks were very good, food was delicious and they had live music when we were there as well. Definitely a place to go back to!

I had read that Bandidos was my best chance to salsa in Zihuatanejo. We visited twice while bumming around downtown, and on one of the two occasions the DJ did spin a couple of salsa songs so we were able to give it a try, but for the most part it was good old 80s rock and other popular music....

Stopped in for a drink. We have been to Bandidos several times the last few years. I was so disappointed in how they have jacked their prices. For the price of two drinks we could have a wonderful dinner at several other places in Zihua.

You can't go wrong with the food here and the music at night is fantastic. You will eat more than you should but will also have fun while doing so. Never heard of anyone going away unhappy. You can stay and dance off your dinner or walk around the neighborhood after having a fun night out.

Thank John C
