We visited this restaurant on our recent holiday to Cancun. The meal and service are first class, Alfonso, our waiter, was extremely helpful, advising on the menu and very attentive. The steaks were done exactly to order and the sizes of the meals were very good. We ordered the Irish Coffees which were made by Alfonso, at our table, all in all we would thoroughly recommend this restaurant and would go back again.

This restaurant is all about the perfect service and the right style.
The building is beautiful, and from the entrance you receive a worm welcome from the staff.

The restaurant is a mastermind to restaurant lovers.

The menu is a combination if Mexican food and Argentinian.
And if you a meat person, so you will feel in heaven.

I recommend to start with the wonderful empanadas ed a first course, and later on as a main course, don't thing twice and ask for the 400gr steak.
The cuts if the meat are well prepared and fresh.

The service, as I mention before is wonderful, and it's very professional and kind.

The prices are basically higher then the competitors, and for a good dinner for 2 with wine you will pay around 180$ USD.
As regular in Mexico, try to leave a good tip, more then 12%.

Enjoy .

This Argentinean restaurant was quite nice, with very large portions. My colleague had the Salad Cambalache and loved it, while I had the roasted chicken - excellent flavor. Not as inexpensive as other restaurants, but food and service were great.

I have been to Cambalache several times over the past few years and it is always an excellent choice. It is quite simply "steak house perfect" in a country where there is no shortage of great steak houses. Every steak is cooked just as ordered and the service is excellent. In addition they have several very fresh fish selections. This time is was a great tuna steak and a grilled whole huachinango (red snapper). Wonderful. Cambalache has been doing business since 1986 and they now have six locations in Mexico City, Toluca and Cancun. I do suggest reservations since this location is popular with business folks and people attending conventions. Yes they have a menu in English. Wine has become popular in Mexico over the past ten or so years and they do have a very good wine list. It is limited in selections from the US but that is typical throughout Mexico. Excellent choices are available from Spain and South America. Buen Provecho!

With many years of existence and a lot of experience, their meat cuts are great, the very wide wine cellar, its rich desserts and variety of salads, is very recommendable.
Just one thing to notice: the waiters try to be so helpful that occasionally one can feel uncomfortable.
Each movement you make they are ready to help you. Not all people will like it, even they are very kind.
