Description: Gringo's Cantina was formerly Gringo Dave's. Dave has sold the place but the new owners have kept the same theme and made it even better. Gringo's offers great food at reasonable prices as well as live music, sports, and Karaoke. The location on the marina overlooking the dolphins is excellant and the staff is great.

“Great place and atmosphere!”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

I stayed in walking distance for a week in February 2012 and frequented here. The owner and staff were very personable and very pleasant. The food was excellent and the presentation was always nice! I would definitely come back here again!

“Sub-par Mexican Food”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

We had a couple dishes from the Mexican portion of the menu, and they were not very good. It is surprising how hard it is to find good, or even decent, Mexican food around here. Also, Gringo's does not accept credit cards.

The one positive thing about this restaurant is that it was lively, as they had a live band (might have been the owner) playing music and interacting with the diners. Also, it has a nice view of the dolphin sanctuary.

derockint, Owner at Gringo's Cantina, responded to this review, 27 April 2012
Thank you for the kind wrds about the entertainment and the setting of the restaurant. We are very sorry that you were dissapointed with the mexican portion of our menu. As you noted in the review, the 'mexican' style food in this region is not what Americans and Canadiens are used to. We get many great remarks about our fish tacos and kids seem to love the chicken quesadillas. We do serve many locals that appreciate the mayan/caribbean/mexican style that we offer. We realize that it is not for everyone, that is why we offer a diverse menu with some American classics and lots of seafood as well. When you return for some great live music, we promise to find something on the menu that will satisfy you.
