Some of the pictures posted are from their old location. They are now in a larger space and yes the other side of the building is a bar at night which is not the nicest thing to look at in the light of day. Ordered the drink special which was mojitos that night, came in a few different flavors and... More

Frankly, I don't even know where to start with this place. But let's go with the pictures on Tripadvisor which are definitely not from the current incarnation of this restaurant. Now housed next to what appears to be a rave staging area, El Gaupo has none of the decor one would expect in the tackiest of north of the border... More

I love Mexican, but this was just like bar Mexican. There wasn't anything particularly good about it and I clearly didn't read enough about it because it's definitely more of a bar setting then a restaurant setting. Most likely won't be going back to this place.

The food was overpriced, under spiced & they put very little alcohol in our drinks. The waitress knew little to nothing about the menu items & specials. This was our first trip to Canada & we were a little disoriented as Americans...they were not helpful at all. This doesn't bode well for a town that survives in tourism. Won't return... More

Best place in Fernie to eat out with kids. Moved to downtown in what used to be the Brickhouse I think.

El Guapo has moved to a new location right downtown on 2nd ave. The new setting and atmosphere are amazing! So refreshing to see a bit of the old mixed with the new. Not to mention the new patio outside! Nothing like enjoying a margarita and enjoying Fernies beautiful downtown scenery, and the mountains too! I love the new coconut... More
