The place itself is well decorated and vety convenient if you come with kids. You can find a nice atmosphere like you are back in nursery. However this atmosphete does not fit with the Mexican food. The service is good, with smiling staff. However, the food is not what you can expect from Mexican food. It is more kind of... More

We went to Gitano's twice during our stay - the first time my wife and I loved our selection of yellow chicken curry, pineapple rice and chicken with lime mayonnaise. My wife was fond of her lemon and honey soda, the watermelon/mint/ginger juice was less pleasant. The kids both had the cheese quesadillas with fries - but neither enjoyed it.... More

I have been to Gitano's 7 times and have eaten there 5 times. 2 times I have sat myself at a table and was ignored by the staff for over 10 minutes so I left. I keep coming back because I sometimes get a craving for Mexican food and Gitano's is actually pretty decent. Please do not not get your... More

I was first disappointed due to the fact that in the early days staff was not friendly and was looking to close the restaurant before closing time. Well it has changed, staff was really friendly food is fun, tasty and at a very reasonable price. It's not pretentious and child friendly. If you have a family very recommended especially after...

We enjoyed Gitano. We only got Mexican food as it isn't available where we live. I will agree with other reviews that it's not quite like Tex-Mex or Mexican food in the US, but the flavors were there and it tasted good for what it was. We didn't eat any of the Thai options. Most of the restaurants we saw... More
