“Atmosphere in abundance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

I am not a red drinker, but you do what you do...and was I rewarded. Forget your Aussie or NZ wine, Gringos wine suits their food perfectly. And for the food, well, I did not go away hungry. Best Mex ever.
Craig is the waiter and owner; he is friendly, informative and loves his Mexican food....no wonder, as his wife is the chef. And boy can she cook. All their trips to Mexico is truly reflected in the authentic taste in the food. The menu is varied and innovative.
I'll visit again next time I'm in the region.

“What a Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

This unpretentious little garden restaurant is worth a journey, not just a visit! Authentic dishes you'll not find in generic "Aussie" Mexican restaurants, cooked and served with passion by the owners Caroline and Craig, who spend a lot of time in Mexico. We had Chimichanga (rolled crispy flour tortilla filled with beef, olive and spices) and Nachos, both ample and delicous. It's BYO but don't bother, there's a great range of Argentinian and Chilean wines at very reasonable prices.

“finnally, a mexican restaurant worth revisiting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

very impressed with this place from the moment i sat in the garden and was greeted with the menu. 20 tequilas to choose from, all of which are 100% agave , and served with sangrita which i loved with my Fortaleza blanco. 4 of us ordered different items and loved the clean fresh taste of all the well presented meals. prawns in a achiote and sour orange marinade ,chicken/cheese & coriander empanadas, baja fish and prawn tacos, it was all just so tasty! Will definitely be coming back to Gringos many times.For sure on Margarita Mondays with 2 for 1 margaritas. the only thing i'd say i don't like about the place is the owners say they close down june.july,and august and head over to Mexico to sit on the beach and buy new tequilas
