Drinks are super delicious and the food should not be missed. We had a couple of entrees and a pizza with drinks in the afternoon.

Visited Casa Banana for an early dinner, whole fish and skewers between us really tasty, odd accompaniment of cauliflower cheese, but it was good. Cooking mainly on an open fire. Cash restaurant and no reservations so get there early to avoid disappointment/queuing.

Great food at a reasonable price. The service was excellent and responsive. My daughter had a steak (their specialty) but they had plenty of non-beef options for me. However, bring cash (they don't take cards) and wear plenty of bug spray.

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.
