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.

“Gringo's Cantina give all gringos a bad name....”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

Too loud for neighbourhood, and too loud to eat, the noise takes away from the local feel of town centre, hated it, it's also disliked by locals as it overpowers centre, hotels, apartments, dolphin water area, beach area, with below average loud loud noise even when empty !! Pathetic attempt at a tacky restaurant, food very predictable, low quality. Never go there again even if it had the last cervasa in Mexico ! Arrogant and obnoxious Gringo's that's all it meant to friends and I. Embarrassed to be sitting there, not a place I would have expected to be in Puerto Aventuras centre, perhaps outside the gates, down the road.

“Perfect spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2013

Came across this little place having taken a walk to the Marina. It has the perfect location to sit and enjoy a Margarita and a snack (recommend the Jalapeño Poppers), whilst watching the dolphins play around as the sun sets.

“Ceviche is Great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2013

Have the ceviche, pass on the nachos. Good little hang out, don't let the "happy hour" fool you. It is still expensive.

“bait & switch”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2013

Have visited Gringo's Cantina since it was formerly Gringo Dave's. It use to be a must stop while visiting Puerto Adventuras, but we had a bad experience our last visit. We had some food at cocktails for their first happy hour (4-6pm). Then returned later at the (10-12) happy hour only to find that the rules had changed. We order blended Margaritas (again), but for some odd reason only margaritas 'on the rocks' qualified for the Happy hour Special.
