Great return reception as expected, very good food and drinks, we all enjoyed very much, only slight issue was a bit too warm as lacking a few fans with delicious hot food at the table perhaps but that's eating in the tropics and worth the slight discomfort! Recommend to anyone wishing for a fantastic eating experience with great service and... More

Decent Mexican food but not quite there, probably due to lack of authentic ingredients? Not having any Avocados doesn't help. Great service and reasonably priced though so still worth a visit if you fancy a change from Thai curries.

Being located on a pretty remote island of Thailand, it is our daily obsession to provide best food using the best ingredients, unfortunately sometimes, due to the seasonality of fruits and vegetables, we can't offfer as many specialties as we would. More

As a vegan, Mexican restaurants can be a tricky one but the veggie fajitas are incredible, ingredients come separately so you can add what you want. We got individual pots of frjoles, three spice sauces, pico de gallo and sizzling veggies. The dishes are not all smothered in cheese which is great. Very tasty cocktails, one called Paloma i've never... More

During my 6 day visit to koh Chang I found this to be the best restaurant on the island. We liked the local sea food restaurants but this was a different experience. Good selection on the menu, good host and awesome food. Must try this place if you visit koh chang

The food in Barrio Bonito should not be missed. The authentic flavors are to die for. Going to Koh Chang and missing Barrio Bonito would be a shame
