Good BBQ food. Nice staff, friendly and helpful, always smiling. It is nice to sit out in the garden and enjoy the good food. It is a quiet place, a bit away from the main street,

We ate at Gringos two nights in a row it was that good. The food was fresh and delicious and the wait staff were so friendly and made you feel very welcome! Fajitas are a must and the nachos too! Would highly recommend!!!

Great food, fresh, tasty, homemade sauces, friendly service, not a 5* authentic Mexican, but a 5* star Texmex. You will leave happy!

We love Mexican food and this place did not disappoint! It was awesome and all the extra chilli sauces on the table helped us make our food even spicier! We regretted not buying their extra hot homemade sauce - it was soooooo good. The owner was really friendly and came over to check everything was ok - we had no... More

Quality is not bad. Service is great. The food is Good enough of Mexican for an island. It's definitely for the gringos and not for the real taco venders like in Mexico or Southern California. It's a little pricey. If you know your Mexican food, pass on it and wait until you go home to get the real deal.

Restaurant never seems to be busy but don't let that put you off. Service is great and food comes out quickly. Most dishes very tasty, beating taste of fancy Mexican establishments in Melbourne. Budget prices. Visit Gringos each time we visit Samui.

Overpriced, yes (to be expected as everything is imported) small portions, yes, but none the less tasty. If you are desperate for a Mexicamn go here, if not... More

I love nachos and for that reason I never eat them out, I always make me at home but Gringos nachos were so yum! I've never had nachos out and enjoyed them like this. Gringos Cantino is a must GO TO restaurant :)))

I traveled back to Koh Samui for the 3rd time in 10 years and was very pleased to see my favourite restaurant 'Gringos' was still going strong under the guidance of Kirk the Canadian owner and was even more pleased to see and report that the food was just as good as ever. This is one must visit restaurant on... More
