Great restaurant with very fresh and authentic Mexican food. The owners Gary and Laura are lovely people and do their utmost to entertain and engage every guest. Laura even kindly recognised a tiny uncharacteristic error she made with my order and couldn't apologise enough and gave me a free beer as a means of making amends. Would highly recommend this place and would go again if I wasn't leaving so soon!

Great authentic Mexican food, great margaritas!
The only thing better is chatting with the American owner, Gary, who has lived in Bocas for over a dozen years! The chili rellenos was outstanding. Indoor and outdoor seating. We were told the recipes were made fresh every morning!

Gary was a great host. He said his margaritas were strong and he was telling the truth. I had two large margaritas and they tasted great and plenty of alcohol. I had the smothered burrito for lunch and it was fantastic. He was closed on Monday, but prepared two regular size margaritas for my friend and me. That way we each had a delicious drink on the way to the next bar.

We were in a cab looking for an Italian restaurant but ended up at Gringo's because it was closed. We were sharing a ride, as all taxis do in Bocas, with a friendly Canadian expat and she was on her way to Gringo's and was a big fan. It's kind of on back street that almost looks more residential than commercial and the place was very empty. Nothing caught our eye and the prices seemed a little speedy so we just had the margaritas, very, very tasty. Wish we would have gone back for the food.

We love Gringos! Great food, friendly atmosphere and personal service by the owner Gary and his wife. Added bonus is learning from them about Bocas town before paved roads and tourists discovered the area. Too fun!
