El Gringos is very much worth a visit, the outside is a little scruffy but don't be put off by that. Inside it is brightly decorated with fairy lights and murials. The food is fantastic, presented well, and theres plenty of it too! We occasionally get take aways from there since our visit and the food it just as nice and you get the same amount but cheaper. Great place!!

Went with a group of collegues, quite large so would be good for a big group. Quite basic decor, mexican themed.
Great cocktail menu and cocktail very nice.
Good selection of mexican food, food tasted average.
Service very slow, had to go over to counter 3 times to ask for bill as nobody was bringing it to us.
Not too expensive, good value for money as portions quite large.
Would recommend for a group of students or family on a budget, not ideal for couples.
Nice and close to beach.

Was suggested to El Gringos by a few friends, me, my wife and our 2 friends were greeted by a lovely waitress who sat us down immediately, the place was very busy and had a great atmosphere, we ordered various cocktails of the menu, which tasted delicious, we ordered starters and mains, which were both mouthwatering, it all came out very presentable and in perfect timing, the waitresses were always charming and thoughtful, asking us if we were ok for drinks, sauces etc, great value for the money! The establishment seemed clean and the decor suited the theme. We'll be coming back again for sure!

I went with a group of friends for one of our friends 30th. There was a large group of us so obviously you know things might take a while. We got there and one of our friends found our table we werent shown to our table. We were there nearly 30 mins before our order was taken. When the food came they had no idea who had ordered what or even which table it was going to as they had spread us over 2. Mains came without the side orders. One of my friends asked for vinegar and after waiting well over 10 mins was then told they didnt have any. When going to the bar if you wanted spirits they had to go to a different bar so I didnt even get my drink straight away.

However the food was lovely and on this basis I would go back.
