“Delicious authentic Mexican food in Samui”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

This place was great! It's a bit hard to find because it's down an alley way, but there is usually a person standing outside the alley handing out flyers for Gringo's Cantina. We found this place because we were CRAVING Mexican food. The waitresses are very nice and friendly, very social and good sense of humors. We started with a pitcher of Margarita and it was fantastic. Then we had the chicken quasadilla for an appetizer.... OH SO SO GOOD! Then for our main meals my boyfriend had the Burrito and Taco Combo and I had the Taco Salad. Both of these were absolutely awesome!! The meats were delicious, the salsa was to die for, and everything was cheesy, so great. We will definitely be going back here.

Our total was about 1300 baht or so.

“Not really Mexican and expensive”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Service is good from Thai staff, but the food is truly atrocious given the average price of 300 baht for a main course. It is an absolute rip off. I don't need to go into details, just have a look the photos, the food tastes as bad and unauthentic as it looks.

“Excellent food & service”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We had a night before wedding dinner of about 50 people we went into Gringos that day and booked, we had eaten there last visit to Koh Samui & was happy with the food.
When we arrivedon the night they had set up two long tables for us all. Happy to accommodate our party of guests. They did mention we maybe putting the staff under a bit of pressure,but on the night they handled it very well. We were very happy with the service & food.

“Perfectly mexican!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

My wife and kids had to convince me to go out for a dinner and we ended up with gringos. At first glance you will be amazed with the mexican style lady with the hat asking you to try their food. Very unique indeed. When we reach the resto, they do have a nice place and good ambience. We ordered our foods because we're starving. We got more than satisfaction as the foods are very good! Highly recommended to all!

“Lovely Mexican in Thailand”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

As lovers of mexican food we were pretty happy to read about this restaurant on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. The meal was great with lots of variety and very authentic. We ordered the combo of an enchilada and burrito - and the meal size was huge ! Great kids menu as well to satisfy the younger mexicans. Would highly recommend this if you are after a change ftom Thai food.
