We were able to have dinner with no bookings on the busy Friday night. It was very fortunate!! We both had Burritos and they were plentiful and delicious but the salad or salsa was an average. A young female staff was friendly and fast to take an order and the male staff was ok. Thank you for the great experience... More

Gringo's has always been a favourite of many holiday makers I know. The food is fresh, plentiful and well priced. They have an extensive list of beers and tequila available for a small venue. Definitely worth a visit if you love Mexican :-)

If you want elegant dining, jog on. This isn't it. It's fun, simple, texmex street food done well. It's a wonderful little corner of Bruns. Great covered tables, for up to twenty, make this the ideal spot for a friend's of family get together but equally for a relaxed, low key and romantic dinner for two. Good music, lovely staff...

Yes it was the busy holiday season but restaurants in the area know this and should be well prepared. Took around an hour and a half to receive main meal and when it finally came it was nothing to get excited about. Looked like a bunch of young teenagers were employed to do the cooking. Food was dreadful, will not... More

Wed come to try the prawn special only to find it was off the menu. Bummer. Still deciding on alternatives while sipping on our margaritas when the owner came up and said she could do the prawns after all for me. Yeah!! And they were delicious as were the chimmy changos (scuse spelling). After that we got talking with the... More

Whilst the food was good at this place lack of service really let's it down. We had booked a table for two and were given the choice of two tables when we arrived..... both set for four. After choosing a table the owner/manager very loudly reprimanded the young waitress for seating us at a table for four. I had a... More

Every year we frequent Gringo's Fresh Mex. Terrific food. So fresh and very good serves. Take away is always a must if you are pressed for something to feed everyone. We like to dine in and finish our meal with their fabulous lime ice cream - to die for. Just go & see for yourselves.
