A friend and I where in Bocas for two days and we ate here both nights. The service was great and Garry the owner and his beautiful wife where fantastic and the food was very good. The drinks we had where made to perfection and the salsa was to die for! Two 👍 way up!

As a lover of all things Mexican (and even Mexican-esque), I was eager to try this place upon my arrival in Bocas. I'm writing this review based on my third (and most recent) trip to Gringo's. Service/Atmosphere-The owner, Gary, is always present and ready to accommodate his customers. He has a great sense of humor, and is known to deliver... More

Nice place. Different though. If you don't like to take a risk than this isn't the place for you. The food was ok. A little slow, not the best Mexican i have ever had. The service was strange. They kind of all stood around and watched us but i think that was because we were the only ones in the... More

Probably the best Mexican food we had in Panama. The burritos were big and delicious. I got the special of some kind, is was great. Home made chips and salsa. Get the hot. And make my Margarita a little stronger next time please.

I don't know if who's writing reviews for restaurants are really tourists or the owners, because me and my boyfriend went eating there after reading good reviews on trip advisor, but the food was really bad, the place was pretty dirty and we spent 50$!!! Expensive, terrible experience! Don't go there!!!

The meal was good, but the service was strange. There seemed to be a challenge between waiters or one was a manager of sorts. First young man was trying hard to communicate as his English was a little off. Not to be expected that he would speak English perfectly as this is not an English speaking country. Anyway, a second... More

I spend two or three weeks a year in Bocas and Gringo's is my favorite place to relax, enjoy a very nice meal, and visit with the owner's husband, Gary, who is an American about nearly any topic. I really like the food and have tried most of the menu items, though keep going back to the smothered burritos. Gary... More
