Stunning food, service and vibe in a really authentic and genuine Mexican restaurant. Great drinks selection too and a very energetic, what appears to be, Mexican front of house lady 🙌

I don’t usually think it’s a good idea to try non-local cuisine in holiday destination, but since our accommodation was a few meters away this year, and the reviews were very good, we tried it ... and have had dinner there again since then. Not...much to write about because EVERYTHING was delicious. - Furthermore, the kitchen is fast and professional - Lorena's attention and kindness is everywhere, so the service and atmosphere are good Such is a good restaurant.More

We ate here as a family and found the food to be delicious and innovative. Every dish was unique and more than just Mexican alone. I highly recommend this as a must stop in Koh Chang. Definitely a top restaurants

A great restaurant with a good vibe and friendly, welcoming hosts/service staff. The food was very tasty. I visited this restaurant twice due to the food being so good. The peanut mazapan dessert was a stand out. The menu provided very good mocktails but did...only provide 2 choices. It would have been nice to have a little more variety. The service staff were lovely and gave me an alcohol free shot which they serve customers, which was tasty and kind of them to provide. One of the best restaurants in Koh Chang for service, quality of food and atmosphere. The menu is on the meaty side but it does have a couple of options available for people who don’t eat meat.More

Lovely vibe and delicious food. We’ve visited twice and both times have been delighted at the service, portion sizes and - most importantly - the taste. Both mocktails on the menu are also noteworthy. The special christmas empanadas for dessert were glorious and we now...want to learn how to make Mazapan for ourselves!More

Definitely the best Mexican food I've tasted in Thailand (maybe anywhere!) Everything was so fresh and full of flavour. The atmosphere is lovely and the host so welcoming.

From the moment we’ve entered, we’ve been greeted by the Spanish owner. The place is beautiful, nice atmosphere, great and delicious food and last but not least careful service. During dinner we even discuss on how the service greeting was amazing (and food delicious !)....A not to missed restaurant in Ko Chang ! Ps: and yes they have vegetarian option and they are pretty delicious !More
