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.

This was the restaurant associated with our hotel (Nueva Vida De Ramiro, also a great place to stay). With our stay the continental breakfast was included. It came with fruit, tea or coffee, and breads with a delicious marmalade. Nothing crazy but certainly nice in the hot mornings of Tulum Beach.

The other breakfast, lunch, and dinner items were great. The prices were reasonable for the area and the food was delicious. The whole fish really was amazing. The place also steadily pumps out great remixes and original versions of various electronic tracks if you are into that sort of thing. They also have a really well maintained old school foose ball table. With an ambient and fun atmosphere this place was a great option if you are in the area. There were not many vegan options, then again it is not advertised as such.

Casa Banana was the restaurant affiliated with our resort, Nueva Vida de Ramiro. We went there for breakfast every morning as they offered a continental meal with our stay. I would have gone back regardless. The breakfast included fresh fruit, fruit juices, coffee, fresh-baked brick oven bread, banana bread and fresh marmalade. Just my type of breakfast and so delicious! You could also order off the menu. We really enjoyed the salmon sandwich and huevos rancheros. The service was great. Super friendly and attentive. It was a pleasure to practice Spanish and English with the baker. We also went for dinner. I ordered the fresh snapper and my partner ordered the duck. Both were cooked to perfection, not dry or under done. Only downside is that it can get a little buggie since it's on the jungle side, but be ready for that since Tulum is in the jungle ;) can't wait to go back!

Not veg friendly.... most expensive place in town......$150 usd for a few drinks/ wine and dinner for two. Friendly staff... great atmosphere/ decor. There's just so many other near by places that are super good for way less....

This was the only real breakfast we had this trip. We both had eggs, potatoes, sausage and coffee. Then treated ourselves to a carafe of FRESH pineapple juice (incredible) and a small loaf of bread made in their wood oven (could be better). Great service. $40 though. That's a lot for breakfast.

It's a nice restaurant on the side of the road in Tulum, near all the other "nice" restaurants. The duck confit was ok, the service corteous, but it closed way too early for western Europe standards, and we were forced to leave before finishing our wine. Not expensive, considering the neighborhood, but not cheap either.
