My favourite place to eat in Malia and always our first stop when we get here ..excellent quality ,friendly staff and a lovely relaxed atmosphere .Homemade guacamole and nachos are the best ! Sizzling fajitas with chicken and prawns ..I could go on .

The staff were so nice, laid back but chatty. Offering the best deals and explaining what items were. Honestly the best Mexican food I've ever eaten and great value with the £10 deal! Loved it. Would recommend to all and will definitely return!

We hade the chilly con Carne and the shrimp starter and they were delicious. I also had the frozen Margarita, cool, fresh and sour as can be seen on the photo that follows. We enjoyed it very much.

One of my favourite restaurants in Malia went here a couple of times while I was there the chicken fajitas are the bomb! Staff are lovely :)!

Not my first visit here but just as good as the last time. Food was tasty and well cooked and staff were friendly and helpful .Although Gringos is on a road full of bars once inside you can forget all that listen to mexican music and of course finish off with a complimentary margarita .

Good choice of dishes on the menu. Plenty for vegetarians. Staff were very friendly and really helpful. Portion sizes were not as big as other restaurants on the strip. But none the less it was still good.

Thank lou-jess
