This great little restaurant makes amazing Mexican food and has a lovely vibe to it! You feel like being in Mexico City, although the owners are French and the location is in fact an island in Thailand.. Best restaurant on Ko Chang!

After two weeks of Thaifood (which we love) this was a fresh breeze. Vegetarian and vegan options! Great drinks and fantastic food with their own twist. Wish I had a place like this at home!

Really enjoyed my visit to Barrio this evening. After 5 days in Ko Chang I have found staff to be not very happy or helpful. The opposite can be said for this restaurant recommendations were made and checking I was ok was spot on. The food was tasty and authentic. I thought service was at the appropriate speed, thank you.... More

I visited this place a few times in between eating Thai food on my visit to Koh Chang. The quality of the food is very high and easily recommend it if you want a happy belly full of goodness. The place gets busy so you can book ahead of time. My overall experience of the place was great, says it... More

A friend of mine living in Bangkok said we should try Barrio Bonito when we were at Koh Chang. As we spend some time in Mexico last year, I have to say I was a bit skeptical, but hey... It was like discovering a piece of Mexico, but in Thailand. We started off with a nachos, bit enough for two.... More

After reading so many good reviews, booked a table for 7 friends. Western waitress accidentally spilled cocktail onto my phone, didn't apologise, didn't offer to replace my friend's drink and then later simply said "phone still working?" Tasty food and enjoyable evening was ruined further when almost illegible bill arrived with an extra 1,300 baht added. Definitely a restaurant that... More

Massively overpriced for what you get.... did not see a menu on the outside so you have to venture in to see what the hype is all about! The staff were happy to help us enter via the dodgy raised stepping stones through the entrance with our pram/stroller but I cannot say the same after the bill was paid. We... More

Incredible and delicious food! Real Mexican flavours 100% approved by two Latinos. We had vegetarian nachos for entree and tacos for main and it was more than enough for two. Absolutely exquisite! Only thumb down was that as soon as we finished our main, they took the plates and brought the bill so they could sit two new customers. It's... More

Superb food again! Superb atmosphere again! Superb service again! Rang to reserve a table and Pascal recognised my voice from a year ago. Amazing! The lovely Lorena and all the staff were so happy to see us and treated us like old friends. Can't wait to come back next year and hopefully get rained in again. Thanks guys.
