New location in La Isla Mall, with the same great food and service, HOWEVER you now must tolerate loud, throbbing nightclub style music which ruins the ambiance for all but those seeking a night club experience.

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.
