Visited Bandido's on the 1st day on our trip to Ixtapa Zihuatanejo and had an amazing lunch, the fish tacos were super fresh and tasted amazing. The margaritas are some of the best we had on our trip. My friend and I went fishing on another day and I caught a huge bull Mahi Mahi so took the fish to... More

Wow, food and service was amazing! We got lost trying to find another place to eat in Zihua, so we told our cab driver to take us somewhere good... And he did! We had 4 different meals they recommended and it was some of the best we've every eaten anywhere in Mexico. Even mashed potatoes were delicious, mashed potatoes! Top... More

We ate here on the recommendation of our tour guide after finishing a city tour. We ordered the bacon wrapped shrimp that came with rice and some small veggies. Due to time constraints (the bus was leaving) we had to get the meal to go. About 1/2 hour later on returning to our resort we were able to eat the... More

We walked from our hotel into town. The town of Zihuatanejo is friendly, clean and charming. This restaurant had a wonderful patio and large screen televisions with U.S. football on. The food was incredible, the service was impeccable, but what made this restaurant the best was the service and attention from Armando Oregon. He is handsome, charming, friendly and the... More

We stumbled upon Bandidos and could not ask for a better Zihu experience. we had the molcajate and boy... that was delicious. Juan provided us 5 star service and even made a reco for a place afterwards(we need to dance off our calories :) ). Highly recommend it for a true Guerrero experience. And note: do not trust their "mild"... More

My husband and I went in to the town of Zihuatanejo last week looking for a place to eat dinner and watch an NFL game. We stopped at Bandido's. Everything was excellent! I ordered a nachos to start and had the chicken molcajete, a delicious bowl of hot broth full of chicken and vegetables, very inexpensive. My husband enjoyed the... More

The food was good, but no better than a lot of other restaurants we have eaten at. The bill here was the highest bill we had for our dinner, anywhere. Service was good, and entertainment was nice.

Bandido's has good food, service and wait staff that goes out of their way to make you feel very welcome. Armando is the man!!! The place to be for brunch, lunch or dinner, not a bad meal or snack.
