I first visited this restaurant in 2005 and remember it being excellent then! It is just as brilliant now! I had emailed the restaurant prior to my visit to enquire about gluten free options and received a prompt response from the owner reassuring me that my requirements could be catered for and informing me of the options available to me....

I got the vegetarian fajitas and my other friend got the burrito! Best Mexican food we have ever had, hands down! The price is definitely expensive for Thailand, but the serving portions are worth it! We couldn't eat all of our food because there was so much! So delicious! The owner was extremely helpful and recommended sauces for our dishes... More

We ate here two times during our stay on Koh Samui. The food was the best Mexican food we have ever tasted. Nachos and Fajitas were great! The staff members were incredably sweet and helpfull. All eight of us would recommend this place.

Gringos has great Mexican food if you fancy a change from the traditional Thai food. We both really enjoyed our meal and the price was very reasonable. Would definitely eat here again.

We really enjoyed our meal at Gringos. We had beef and chicken fajitas. The serves were very generous, absolutely delicious and well priced. Staff were helpful and enthusiastic. They have a range of big Mexican hats you can wear for selfies. Worth the visit!

We saw the amazing reviews on trip advisor so decided to go here, it was a bit of a walk from our hotel but we thought it would be worth it. Definitely wasn't, the service was poor and the food was cold, tasteless and expensive. Would not recommend this place to anyone!

Staff were welcoming and there was a nice atmosphere. I ordered the mixed grill and all the meat was overcooked. I complained and the head waitress got it replaced. She was very good, her name's Chamaipon. The replacement dish was much better.

The staff was absolutely adorable. Very sweet... fast service... food was all really good. To all the people who complain about the Mexican food... I have been to worse in big cities that cost 10 times more. They are a tiny restaurant serving you something different than Thai at GREAT prices. If you are craving some Mexican stop by, I've...
