The food here is amazing. We ate here twice during our trip to Cancun. We had the skirt steak and the rib eye. For sides we had the the mashed potatoes as well as their soufflé potatoes. We also had the best empanadas for appetizers....The service was very attentive and the food is fabulous.
On our first visit Luis Tamay was our waiter and for our second it was Alberto Sanchez. Both gentleman offered great service and were very friendly to talk to. They both helped us enjoy a very special evening out.
We loved that we could walked there from the Live Aqua hotel.More

We usually visit the Cambalache when in Cancun as they have some of the best steaks in Cancun. I had the strip steak, and my wife had the tenderloin. We also had the Caprese salad. Cambalache has done an excellent job dealing with the Corona...virus. Each table is separated by plexiglass partitions and they are well separated. The staff all wear masks at all times. Your temperature is checked on entering the establishment. As usual the food was great. Steaks were done to perfection exactly as ordered. The sides were excellent and the sauces provided were superb. Strongly recommend this restaurant. It is not cheap, but is worth the cost in my opinion. this year had a mixologist. Drinks were great and it was a nice show as well. My best martini in Cancun.More
We had a great and relaxed birthday dinner. Abel y German were our waiters and they're excellent, very friendly and professional, they made us feel welcomed after a long tour day visiting Chichen Itza and swimming in the Xenote to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. We...enjoyed a super filet mignon for two, Rose Deseado sparkling wine, and a final touch: carmel flan with candle to celebrate Tom's birthday.More
Always great. Table side Cesar salad, tenderloin for two, potato soufflé, cheesecake, and Cafe Frances. Great service from everyone, especially Abel. If you are staying at Westin Lagunamar, this is a no brainer. 10% discount and short walk.
P.S. Better than Vicentes in the new...mall.More
Very nice restaurant, great meat choice and quality. Very attentive staff. Recommend the Caesar salad which comes with a home-made sauce that s prepared in front of the guest and served in a very creative way.
It also has some nice meat cuts, which are...grilled in an open kitchen that contributes to creating a great atmosphere for a dinner.More
