Description: Gringo's Cantina was formerly Gringo Dave's. Dave has sold the place but the new owners have kept the same theme and made it even better. Gringo's offers great food at reasonable prices as well as live music, sports, and Karaoke. The location on the marina overlooking the dolphins is excellant and the staff is great.

We had an excellent meal at the Hoo Haa and stayed for the band. The food was tasty and fresh, and the band sounded great. Service was good and the bill was reasonable. We would definitely go back.

Hoo Haa's is a great place with great music and great food. It is very reasonable and we enjoyed going there every night. The place is under new management and Dugan is fun and full of information as is France. You feel right at home and the music is 7 days a week. There is music for every taste. Will... More

Garbage music, garbage food....still just scamming and laughing at all the tourists who think they are cool listening to the too loud bad music. Hoo Haa should not be encouragedint his small town square. Don't think the dolphins 15 feet away at night like the loud vibrating music either, think about it before you give them your business ! Try... More

This restaurant is now called HOOHAA's......the food is some of the best we have experienced while on vacation. The owner Dugen is a upbeat kind of guy, full of stories and a lot of laughs. They have great entertainment and the regular costumers were friendly as can be and made us feel very welcome. We went there almost everyday for... More

For a very reasonable price the new gringos will tantilize your tastebuds. new management is from the states and they also have a neat twisted beer bottle that you can have your picture put on it.

After chartering a boat & catching some snappers, our group took the filets to Gringo's. They gladly prepared the fish to our specifications. We were thrilled with the way our snapper was presented with corn tortillas, pico de gallo, lime... We ate fish tacos until ready to explode. We noticed a sign in Spanish that stated something about "no credit... More

Ate here 4 times in the week we were there. We ate lunch there first and my husband had a rum and coke and I asked for a glass of water. The waiter said can only give you water in bottle. Hmm so ordered a lemonade instead. Went back next day and had a girl waitress and we ordered our... More

The food is very good here. Especially for the area. If you like american food, this is a must for you. A lot of the places around the area fail to catch the American food nuances that we look for in our food. This place makes great food and drinks. Nice informal dining. Not any louder than any place else... More

Been in Puerto Aventuras and have to say this is the WORST place ever. Eat the food only if you want to get sick...and what is with the music? We could hear the music from all around the dolphins so we head over expecting the place was going to be rocking...not! So we thought ok lets give it a go,... More
