Overall good food and good service, a bit pricy like you were eating in Europe. Considering the standards in Cancun, it's a place where I would recommend to go.

This is our friends favorite restaurant, conveniently located on the north end of the hotel zone. Known for their Brazilian beef, the Caesar salad is also exceptional and made tableside. Everything we ate in the 3 times we went, was great.

We ordered the rib steak for two and Caesar salad. As others mention, the salad including the dressing was made table side. Very fresh and delicious. The steak arrived on a hot iron platter so it wouldn't cool off while we ate. Server was attentive and didn't argue when the bottle of wine he brought us wasn't as listed in... More

This place didn't miss a beat. Warmly greeted, we were seated with our party promptly. Wait staff, prompt, polite, always within an eyeshot, never overbearing. I ordered the Roquefort salad followed by a skirt steak cambalache for two to share with the bride. The waiter prepared the Roquefort dressing from scratch tableside and the bathed six leaves of fresh spotless... More

Great food plus excellent service equals a perfect experience. I have not been to a restaurant who has five waiters waiting on your table. The servers were so polite always there to attend to all your needs I mean all they will cut the steak for you. I recommend this place to everyone who visits cancun.

We were treated like royals! I went in to dinner here with my 4 young adult kids and they were as impressed as I was. We had Bread, soups, and a table side prepared Cesar salad. Followed up with one hamburger for my 16yo, and 4 deliciously prepared ribeye steaks served on smoking hot iron platters for the rest of... More

Always have an excellent experience at Cambalache. Gaspar, David and Angelo (? sorry) are extraordinary at their profession. The food, drinks and deserts (yes, plural. They made two since we couldn't decide between strawberries and banana's) were so delicious. Look forward to visiting the new location next year. Sincerely, Mary and Bill

The most terrible experience I've had in my life!!! Took the family out to dinner here and it took us about 30 minutes to get water and drinks on the table. It really felt like we were invisible! There were plenty of waiters running around but no one seemed to be interested in taking care of our table. By the... 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.
