My boyfriend found this place first time we went to Koh Chang, then we become addict to this place, every time we go to Koh Chang we can´t miss this amazing food and great company!! If you are around don´t think it twice, you should try alambre, rajas con queso, chorizo con queso and tacos dorados!!! It´s just like mom´s flavor! You can also drink the crazy cocktails and excellent margaritas!

A diamond in the rough, wahoo, it's one of the nicest title we never had. Thanks so much, we're so happy that you enjoyed it and realized that it's truly authentic, because this is realy important for us to provided original recepies and not tex mex and we know that you know what you re talking about, living in the states. So thank you again, we hope to see you soon.

Great choice of tasty mexican food, very good service. Prices very reasonable considering the quality and portion served. The lady owner can speak English, Spanish, French and Thai, impressive. Great work and keep on the good job!

Cannot recommend this restaurant. Went with a large group of 20. Booking was accepted but restaurant did not have the staff to cover. Waited about 45 minutes to order and over an hour for food to arrive. They took our names with order. When food came through no-one seemed to know who ordered what. Some people were forgotten and got. O food. When queried staff admitted they made a mistake. Totally disastrous. Food ok nothing special. Guess they are used to dealing with smaller groups of 4 and 6. They did bring round tequilas at the end as a kind gesture. Under the circumstances cannot say this was value for money as it was a real cock up.

Sorry to read that, indeed it was a bit messy, and this is true we didn't have the staff to cover it, I know this is not the costumers problem but you have to know that this night our staff didn't show up, sorry again. But also on the other hand you made a booking for 20 peoples and came 35!!! If you said before we could book the place for you as we didn't have enough staff and we had to take care of the others tables. Because we know our job, working in restaurant for more than 15 years and running our own place since 7 years now, I thing we know what we do... We had a lot of groups like you and everything was always fine, if you have a look on the others comments, you'll know what I mean. So sorry again but please think to the peoples who work and next time you book a table for 20 peoples don't come with 35 guest...

Good food and ambience is WORTH paying for. Ignore those whining about the price. Its worth it. We ate there 2 times on this trip. The owner was wonderfully accommodating and helpful and suggested some items for us on the menu. If you want QUALITY tasting food on Koh Chang and want a change from Thai, then I HIGHLY recommend this place. Better than any Mex food I have had in Bangkok, that is for sure.

Wow, what a great meal we had here. Beautifully presented and super tasty. There was a fusion take on some of the food, and it was done to perfection. A definite place to stop for a meal when in Koh Chang. A little pricier than your average place, but recommended to us and we are passing it along.....
