This was our second time at this restaurant. First experience was not really good and we hesitated to go back when a couple of freinds suggested this restaurant for dinner. Food was amazing, every dish we oredered was full of flavor, excellent presentation and perfect temperature. If you are a tea lover, ask for their selection, teas are really good.... More

Great food and great service at a reasonable price. Enjoyable evening and our server Javier was very good. Easy to get to from hotel zone. Allow 90 minutes for rush hour traffic during dinner hours (6-8)

this is the sort of place with multiple service people with great steaks but it is extremely expensive for mexican standards. I do not like or agree how the valet parking service people place cars on the pedestrian curb. This is obviously illegal.

In a buzzing Comercial centre in Cancun downtown, we find a jewel, Bandoneon! Ample menu and a wide selection of Argentinian wines in particular. Warm welcome and attentive service.

Although all dishes & sides were tasty, I found that all the portion sizes were too large. I would prefer smaller options, which would reduce the price too. One option would be to share the meat dishes, but everyone at our table wanted to eat something different. This meant we decided to skip desserts. The sommelier was very helpful with... More

The service is attentive and the food very good. A place for business lunch or dinner as it is not romantic at all since the lighting is super bright at night. Regretably, there is a large smoking section separated from main dining space by automatic glass doors, which do not seal and are constantly open, so the disgusting cigarette smoke... More

We went for a late lunch and shared the chorizo appetizer, some empanadas, fresh rolls & breadsticks and the Lamb Ossobuco with risotto and mushrooms. Everything was excellent. Service was attentive. We would go back again and again.

There's two options to have dinner, inside the restaurant which is none smoking and to my particular taste is pretty bright and not the kind of place for a romantic dinner if that's what you have planned, second spot would be the terrace overlooking the street it is a private (less light) looking place but it is the smoking area...

We found Bandoneon from our timeshare owner's recommendation list. Our concierge also insist it's a local fav. From the minute we walked in, we knew it was going to be a unique experience. There were 6 of us and were given a perfectly size round table, great for conversations. Every waiters, servers or manager that we came in contact with... More

Located in the best area of downtown (“El Centro”), Bandoneon is a wonderfully elegant, contemporary restaurant – making it a favorite of locals, and tourists alike. Our menu is designed to satisfy everyone. Each selection is prepared with the finest ingredients and highest quality standards. A special Charcoal Grill provides the perfect flavor to our meat and fish. To complement your food, we recommend that you try one of our fine wines imported from “La Argentina”.
