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.

Loved, loved, loved this restaurant. Yes, it's expensive, even by Tulum standards, but worth every penny. This was the BEST meal, by a mile, that we had while in Tulum. Heck, it was the best meal we had in months. Two people with a couple of drinks each and two entrees plus tip was about $100. Would do it again without question.

Oh my goodness I want to go back to this gem!! Not only the most beautiful setting under candles and jungle trees, but honestly the best meal we had in Tulum, hands down. I am still dreaming about the beet salad and whole roasted fish. This place makes amazing drinks (order the habanero margarita YUM) and incredible food (the steak is the best I've ever had and I lived in San Francisco for 5 years). We tried a few things on the menu and all were so delicious and fresh and unique. Can't wait to visit again. Thank you Casa Banana for a beautiful, beautiful experience.

Everything was pretty good. It wasn't amazing, but a lovely night nonetheless. It seems to be amongst the top 5 restaurants along the beach.

Once again, we had a fabulous experience at Casa Banana! Santiago, Daniel and Augustina have left us feeling like family and the pride and passion for their place shines through in all the dishes and wait staff.
Our meal was delicious, we shared 2 entrees, even though they are quite large, and started with our favorite asparagus & goat cheese, yum!
The wine list is a pleasure to explore with lots of Argentinian gems, and tasty mixed cocktails. Their new addition of a cocktail bar is smart since during the high season, they get quite booked and a cool refreshing concoction is the perfect thing while you take in the ambiance.
