I'm rating these guys as very good because their food was, however the service was slow, (there was only one server and it was a packed house) we had arrived before the rush so we were in no hurry. The food was so good in fact we had tried to eat there on two separate occasions on vacation though... read more

I didn't have very high hopes going into El Guapo for dinner and still came out extremely disappointed. Below are my pros & cons. Pros: - Margaritas were very tasty and not blended which I like - They actually had real Mexican hot sauce, although not on the tables - I got up and grabbed it from the bar. -... More

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 very good and also very affordable. We really enjoyed the place. The kids loved the food, and the portions were good.

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.

What I like about Fernie is all the great places to go that are different. We really enjoyed the food here and the staff were great!
