You have to visit Buddha View. The environment is so cosy and relaxed with the background music. Your feet is dangling over the water while you have some beautiful and tasty food together with a drink. That's really great life! The price is of course a bit higher than local but affordable.

We had a good experience there, the food was really good, staff really kind and they help us finding a typical dish we wanted to try. The restaurant very nice and cleaned with good attention to details and comfort of guest. I would recommend it!

Went to the restaurant during post Songkran festival, the place was lovely and had a good view. It was peaceful and a charming place. Staff were good as we had to order vegan food. You might have to wait, as this place is popular with tourists, however, I would certainly recommend this place for an amazing experience in Koh Chang.

During our five day stay in Koh Chang, we went to this restaurant three times (once for lunch, twice for dinner) and were never disappointed. It's on the more pricey side of the scale, but so worth the money. They offer both Thai and European style dishes and the owner is Belgian. The staff speaks proper English and is very... More

We went there during our Koh Chang visit to celebrate my friend's birthday. The restaurant opens since 8am and we went there for lunch. The table we had was water front where we could hang our legs down, pretty scary but really great. The service was very good and the food was very delicious. We were impressed by the seafood...

Beautiful. Relaxing. Breathtaking views. Absolutely gorgeous food. Good price range. We went there 4 times during our one week stay. Decided that we could not find a better place in Bang Bao, so enjoyed ourselves in the relaxing surroundings of Buddha View. Brilliant staff. Next time in Ko Chang we WILL visit this place again!

Perfect spot with over the water seating, great staff also. The menu is extensive, from Western to Thai. The only downside is the owner, he was quite rude to us when we had to pay with a high denomination note and didn't even thank us. Would come again though and just ignore him.
