Nice Mexican place, awesome food. Would recommend for someone who wanted a break from Thai food. Very good value with plenty of sharing options.

“Great food - huge portions - extra spicy”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

We love Mexican food and this place did not disappoint! It was awesome and all the extra chilli sauces on the table helped us make our food even spicier! We regretted not buying their extra hot homemade sauce - it was soooooo good.
The owner was really friendly and came over to check everything was ok - we had no complaints! We loved the food!
What surprised us was how quiet the big restaurant was - a real shame as this place should be a winner!

“It's definitely for the gringos”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

Quality is not bad. Service is great. The food is Good enough of Mexican for an island. It's definitely for the gringos and not for the real taco venders like in Mexico or Southern California. It's a little pricey. If you know your Mexican food, pass on it and wait until you go home to get the real deal.

“Good mex food in centre of Chaweng”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Restaurant never seems to be busy but don't let that put you off. Service is great and food comes out quickly. Most dishes very tasty, beating taste of fancy Mexican establishments in Melbourne. Budget prices. Visit Gringos each time we visit Samui.

“That'll teach us!”
Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

Well let's be fair, trying to get a decent Mexican on a Thai Island was always going to be tricky, and don't get me wrong this was not bad, it was ok! Overpriced, yes (to be expected as everything is imported) small portions, yes, but none the less tasty. If you are desperate for a Mexicamn go here, if not wait till you get home.
