We had dinner at Cambalache (four of us). It was a wonderful dinner, and very reasonable - we each had the 7 oz tenderloin. The salads are huge and easily shared at least two ways, if not more. Fresh bread was served. It is moving from its current location in the center of the island to La Isla which will... More

Our waiter was Alfonso and I can't speak highly enough of him. He was an exceptional professional. He knew the menu very well and was able to describe the choices for us and how things were prepared. He was friendly and accommodating. He added to our positive experience at this restaurant. The atmosphere at the restaurant was lovely and the... More

Visited restaurant on a very busy night (valentines night). Service was mostly good given how busy they were. The only service problem was we asked for water when we ordered 1st round of drinks and after a 2nd request for water we finally received water after the food was served(no refills ever offered). First round of drinks were ok at... More

If you are looking for an outstanding charcoal grilled steak with an authentic Argentine flavor, then Cambalache is the place to go in Cancun. Our steaks were extremely tender, cooked to perfection and served on a grill hot plate with a medley of succulent grilled vegetables. The restaurant atmosphere makes you feel right at home, especially with the impeccable service... More

We took the bus up to the corner and had dinner at Cambalache. The food was very good and honestly too much for us so took a lot home! I had ribeye which was good, spouse ordered tuna which was not highest grade of tuna. The service was excellent- timely and attentive! Ordered a nice bottle of Argentinian Malbec Syrah... More

The bad news is that the very good restaurant is located n a crummy building with hundreds of street peddlers. The good news is they are moving two miles down the street in a very nice area within the next month We had steak and pasta and both were excellent. The portions are more than adequate. Service is impeccable. Great... More

We visited Jan 30th 2017 for my mothers birthday. Antonio and Max were our servers and were exceptional, polite and quick! The food was incredible from the breads to the sides and the Short rib (to die for) They were even so kind as to remember my mom's birthday and surprise her with a gorgeous dessert and a wonderful song....

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.
