It was our last night of our vacation in Cancun and what a great dinner experience we had here at Cambalache! My husband & I have our own preference as to how our steaks are prepared, he prefers medium rare and I prefer medium well. The tenderloins were cooked perfectly to our liking and were so tender! The souffle potatoes... More

Good service, fun meal, good prices. We ordered more food than we could eat as the portions are large. Ask for Ubaldo to be your server

On the recommendation of our hotel driver, we tried this restaurant ( open only a few months). We were blown away! Great ambience.... Evocative of 1930s-40s Buenos Aires. Superb service. The food was sublime..... greatly exceeded our expectations. They prepared my companion's rare steak to her liking, and my medium. We both had the Ribeyes. Baked potatoes on the side.... More

We had a very nice time at Cambalache, in the great company of our granddaughter and her two 17 year old friends. My husband and I thought the Margheritas were fab, the wine was excellent and reasonable priced. The Caesar salad was about the "show" of being put together rather than the actual dish. More dressing than greens- seemed as... More

Cambalache made a very wise decision of moving to la Isla Mall. The former location had become a problematic area with lot of bars and discos, and drunk people.... This new location is bigger, ample space and bigger tables. As for the food, the same menu with outstanding cuts from Argentina, plus a very good wine list with good selections... More

Party of 6: we enjoyed each meal, the wine and the service! The vibe was lively, the music was current and 'there' but not too loud so we could still talk. Good wine list. Our server was friendly and humorous. I highly recommend it!

Our party of three had a delicious meal and wonderful experience at Cambalache. We shared the mixed grill and had some leftover; everything was cooked perfectly and seasoned well - delicious! We saved room for dessert and ordered the Arajha which was flaky, chocolately, and very lovely. One of our party got the Petaño cafe (alcoholic) which was prepared table... More

This was an unexpected delight. We arrived and were quickly greeted and asked to wait while they were setting our table. Less than five minutes later, we were walking through an amazingly well-run restaurant with two levels. Santiago, the assistant manager, sat us and asked for our drink order. I'd like to note, that he did not write down our... 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.
