We really enjoyed our dinner at Casa Banana. The restaurant setting is beautiful with an open kitchen. Note: They accept cash only so bring pesos because they do not give you a favorable exchange rate if you pay with US DOLLARS. Highly recommend.

Casa Banana has a fun feel to it. It’s a street side setting with lots of candles and an open wood fired oven. The food is Argentinian style and many dishes cooked over the coals. We were looked after by Angel who was great fun...More

Casa Banana is the sister restaurant of Mina (at Maria del Mar). The decor is standard beach vibe, looks ok at night but perhaps could do with a facelift. We couldn’t check the menu ahead of time as it isn’t on the website, which is...More

Food and atmosphere were spectacular. My 4 star rating reflects cost expectations rather than quality/service. Our party had skirt steak, whole snapper and chicken kabobs; the food was outstanding.

No. Only cash. They have an ATM in front but I am told they charge high fees so wouldn't go that route. Best bet would be to change to pesos in downtown Tulum and pay with that as exchange is very favorable right now.

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.
