He knew he wanted the chicken kabob without even looking at the menu. He was informed they had just run out of chicken kabobs.They... More

I have visited a couple of times, most recently in June. The restaurant is set in the ever so chic Tulum Beach Jungle side. The setting (bar, grill) and soft lighting make for a dreamy atmosphere. The food is consistently good. The service was just "ok" both times. The food good enough to return and hope for better service. Will... More

My husband I both had filet mignon - his was the skewered version, and mine was the steak with mushroom. Both were superb, but I must say that mine was possibly the best steak I've ever had. It really was tremendous. The service was pretty good too, and the vibe of the restaurant is very funky and fun. For me,... More

Have to be honest and say that reading all the bad reviews definitely detoured me from this place but all in all it was well worth the visit. Had great cocktails, great food, and great service. I will definitely be heading back to class banana on my next visit!

This is one of my favorite restaurant to enjoy a tasty dinner with wine, steak and chimichurri. It is a open restaurant, but do not worry, No mosquitos. The place is great spot if you want to have a romantic dinner and the food is really good.

Inventive, super fresh and great cocktails. Try the roasted octopus with honey sauce, asparagus with roasted garlic, and zucchini salad. All excellent. Great breads also.

We wanted to try the Casa Banana after receiving many recommendations from locals. Payment only cash was the first bad news of our dinner. But (un)luckily the ATM just in front of the restaurant can provide some USD with "only" 10% fee... unbelievable. Good and fast service. Entradas: Guacamole with too much lemon and not tasty. But that was my... More

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.
