The food is decent and the outdoor restaurant is cool. There is usually a good crowd here at night. The drinks are pretty watered down.

The beef didn’t disappoint! Other menu items were good but not exceptional. Service spotty. Long wait for our table as the restaurant is very popular. Lovely spot. Advice would be to go with their strength- beef - you will leave very satisfied.

Second restaurant in tulum we visited. The funny baby foot at the entrance gives a gipsy touch to this trendy Argentinian restaurant. Loved the cocktails , the ambiance and the food. Just perfect

This place is always busy for a good reason. The atmosphere is laid back with a hip vibe. The food and drinks were delicious. Worth any wait if you get a chance to visit Tulum.

No. Only cash. They have an ATM in front but I am told they charge high fees so wouldn't go that route. Best bet would be to change to pesos in downtown Tulum and pay with that as exchange is very favorable right now.

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.
