Excellent and authentic Mexican food. However, it was very expensive and, unbelievably, does not accept credit cards!

First of all the staff are so over the top it's bordering on being funny, the restaurant is jammed every night so we were expecting something special, although I'm always cautious about eating other countries food when not in that particular county. However it was walking distance and of course I'd read the TA reviews so it must be good.... More

Probably the worst Mexican meal I have had. No flavour what so ever plus the waiter was quite rude. Very expensive, there are much better places to eat.

Now this is fun - a good Mexican restaurant, totally unexpected at this tiny Thai island. We got a recommendation from a friend in Bangkok and wanted to try this place, and we weren't disappointed. They actually have proper Mexican food (Yes I have been to Mexico) and drinks. The guy who owns the restaurant and the staff is expats,... More

We had a lovely welcoming and the staff (who I think speaks about five languages) was really nice. Good menu, decent drinks, great food. And reasonable prices!

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
