Very hip spot great design and atmosphere. Excellent wine list and helpful sommelier. Pricey but really not too pricey for what you get. The food was incredible and the staff very professional and friendly. It's nice to have multiple staff working your table! Waiter suggested a Argentinian chorizo as an app....wow excellent!

Went there on a Saturday night and the place was hopping. We started our meal with a great bread basket and a tableside Ceasar salad. The salad was good but not what we're used to in the states. We shared the rib eye and a baked potato. The meal presentation of the meat is impressive but for two people 28... More

This restaurant has delicious food and great service. Unfortunately, they also overbook and have a poor system of receiving and seating guests. We checked in for our reservation and we were given no information but asked to wait. After twenty five minutes waiting we, along with numerous other clients with reservations, were told that it would be another 30 minutes... More

Didn't know where to eat in Cancun after being stranded by Storm Stella. We took a chance and went here since it looked nice. Totally worth it. The steaks were simply amazing, better and cheaper than most in the states, and the caesar salad was phenomenal. I am so glad we tried it out. I believe they haven't been in... More

An Argentine steakhouse accross from our hotel, why not. Turned out to be well worth our decision. Steaks were perfect, flavorful and cooked exactly as ordered. Mashed potato and creamed spinach were very goood as were the calamari appetizer and the Caesar salad, with a hint of mustard which seems common here. Very goood wine list with a great selection...

Our friends introduced us to Cambalache a few years ago and we make it a priority to return for a meal each time we are in Cancun. The steaks and service and always excellent. Alberto in particular was a pleasure to meet and have as our server. We are planning our return to Cambalache now during our visit in March... More

I have been eating at this reasturant for years. When you enter they have suckling pig, lamb, beef, chicken and many meats roasting on a spit. My mouth waters. Their attention to detail is amazing, You will have two servers assigned to you and they will focus on you and your needs. PLEASE, order a cesar salade. It is prepared... More

One of the loveliest restaurants in Cancun! Every dining area is comfortable and family friendly, where whatever the age, you will feel right at home. The perfect place to enjoy a fine cut of meat, accompanied by a fine selection of wine, this restaurant will make you feel right at home! Enjoy the best Prime Cuts, Lamb, Suckling Pig and Fish, carefully prepared in our Charcoal Grill. Cambalache´s delicious menu is complete with “typical family recipes” in the purest fashioned Argentina. Soups, salads, side dishes, artisan breads are cooked at the moment to satisfy the most demanding palates.
