We'd been doing 'all inclusive' most of the week in Playa del Carmen. Someone had mentioned Gringo's for a great place to go without going into the city. They couldn't have been more right. The outside dining at the marina was awesome and the music...More

We had an excellent meal at the Hoo Haa and stayed for the band. The food was tasty and fresh, and the band sounded great. Service was good and the bill was reasonable. We would definitely go back.

After chartering a boat & catching some snappers, our group took the filets to Gringo's. They gladly prepared the fish to our specifications. We were thrilled with the way our snapper was presented with corn tortillas, pico de gallo, lime... We ate fish tacos until...More

The food is very good here. Especially for the area. If you like american food, this is a must for you. A lot of the places around the area fail to catch the American food nuances that we look for in our food. This place...More

Gringo's Cantina was formerly Gringo Dave's. Dave has sold the place but the new owners have kept the same theme and made it even better. Gringo's offers great food at reasonable prices as well as live music, sports, and Karaoke. The location on the marina overlooking the dolphins is excellant and the staff is great.
