Gringos is very central and easy to find from the main drag in Chaweng. The portions are huge and the margaritas are the best you'll find around. The owner is very nice and friendly, and comes around to every table to make sure everything is good. Very attentive staff. We will be back.

This is a Tex-Mex style place in the heart of Chaweng. The food is decent, but you definitely feel like you're eating a well intentioned attempt at Tex-Mex but it just doesn't quite hit the mark. We had two combo plates, enchiladas and nachos, all were hot and well presented. The frozen margaritas are good and a good value. The... More

After our first visit, this place became our usual go-to restaurant and it gave us plenty of reasons for this. The staff there were extremely friendly and welcoming, providing great service and there is also tasty Mexican and fusion food for reasonable prices. The food we had was epic! The tacos were stuffed with homemade guac and their sauces were... More

We went here with some friends who were hankering after Mexican food. Great corn chips... very generous serving sizes, and tasty Mexican. Enjoyed the 'Thaibasco' sauce and jalapeno salsa. Margaritas were plentiful, but a little syrupy. 3600B for 4 people: appetisers, mains, and many drinks! Definitely visit if you're in Koh Samui and craving Mexican food.

The food was absolutely delightful . I had the beef burrito and my girl had the special which was the bbq chicken/pork ribs combo. The ribs were fall off the bone tender and the chicken was moist and savory. My burrito was hearty and filling covered with guacamole and homemade sour cream. It was filled with well seasoned beef, beans... More

Been here several times, Mexican food is always good, nice frozen maragaritas too. Portions are not huge but food is tasty and quite authentic. Place is just off the main drag on a side street -quite easy to find. Good choice for something different in Samui.

Have been travelling around Thailand for 5 weeks and this is the best Mexican we have stumbled across! Get the Fajitas if you go! Price is a little more than going to a local Thai restaurant but well worth the money

Thank Rebecca C
