We' ve been recently to Koh Samui and wanted something not-thai food - so found this mexican restaurant on Chaweng Beach. The food was amazing, very tasty, big variety and proper big portions! The owner came by and had a chat with us (very nice gesture!) and encouraged us to try their sauces as well - a home made nice... More

Right, from the comments many thought they are not traditional, so what? The staff is nice, location is good, and food is really tasty. And value for money too! I'm thinking to come back to eat again tomorrow.

We were the 1st people to show up at 1pm to their lunch time. Believe it or not while waiting for our drinks the owner did come and speak to us briefly explaining their sauces they made (not good) as he is unloading his truck of all their grocery food items. We ordered Frozen Margarita's...and took forever to receive only... More

Ordered the pulled pork enchiladas, and the pork tortilla wrap from the starters . Fabulous! The house white wine was very nice and well priced. Must try the home made jalapeño sauce. Very warm service 😊. Fabulous value for money.!

My fiancé and I ate here because after 2 weeks in SE Asia he was REALLY craving some Mexican food. The chips and salsa here were good. I got the hard tacos and they were literally the tacos that you make yourself at home with the shells they sell at the grocery store and the packaged fajita mix. They were... More

Great food. We were craving nachos and heard good things about Gringos. Service was excellent and the owner even went out to get fetta cheese for a greek salad that one of our party wanted to order. Mid range pricing and well worth it. Definitely worth the visit

We came for some Mexicana and were not disappointed. Tacos, burritos, chips and salsa...along with cold beer and fruity margaritas. The owner was a friendly presence and made sure we were well taken care of. Great service and definitely the best Mexican food we'd had in ages!
