I have visited Gina's twice now. Once with colleagues and once with my family and had a great time at both visits. The price - value relation for food is very good, portions are large and the atmosphere of the little colorfull house on the hill is very special. Service personnel was extremely helpful and friendly. We had a ferry to catch and they managed to get our food (appetizers + entrees) read extrafast for us (I havent stopped the time but my guess is +/-15mins.) Will come again on my next visit!

Was expecting it to be amazing due to the misleading reviews below. I wasn't very impressed. Service isn't the greatest. Had the grilled chicken soft tacos. Long waiting times for your food & Food is very bland. Not even the dessert was decent. I've been to way better Mexican restaurants. I would not go back.

Always an exciting experience. Love the food, the music, the staff. The only thing stopping my from giving a full 5 stars, is that it's a little crowded because it's such a small space. But that kind of makes it more fun.

Not very authentic, and the refried beans were really weird and just so wrong, despite them apparently being famous for them. Other than that, from an objective standpoint the food was actually decent.

I only popped in for a quick snack but I was definitely not disappointed. The salsa was very clearly home-made and it was delicious and noticeably fresh too. Not to mention the staff was so welcoming and kind and made for a wonderful experience! I will surely be going back soon

Environment: 5 the restaurant is super cute and very mexi-chic Service: 4 the staff were very friendly and the food came quickly Drinks: 3 the margarita was so-so and lacked oomph Food: 1-2 We tried the chile relleno which was small and had a square lump of cream cheese partially melted; the chimichanga and the enchilada were just meat with no real flavor or veggies. All in all the food was a disappointment with the cuteness of the place and the great staff.

Cute funky little place! Liked the atmosphere. I wasn't overly impressed by the food though. Authentic or american-mexican, doesn't really matter to me as long as the food is good... and I thought the food was mediocre. That being said, I may go back, because the service was fantastic! I was helped by a few different servers and everyone was very friendly. I was seated and had my order taken quickly, which I was not expecting due to how busy it was! The food came a little TOO quick (if you know what I mean), but I guess that's just the type of place it is... So if you go in without too high of expectations for the food, you will enjoy yourself due to the atmosphere and great service!
