“Really good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

We were a bit dubious about eating Greek food in Thailand but encouraged by other reviews we went and really happy we did, although it was a bad evening weather wise (yes in Thailand!) with lots of wind, the food was really great and a nice change from the curries and seafood we had been eating.

“Real greek food far away from Greece”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013

We got the tip from locals (danish) that they have good food, we ate thai and greek food, botn was great. Service was friendly, quick. the owner Costas is very caring about his customers. You eat on a nice terrace overlooking the bay by Bang bao. If I should say anything negative about the place, the music was a little too loud for lunch :-) all together nice experience.

“Stunning location & very good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013

We have eaten several times at this beautiful seaside restaurant and we can not get tired of the amazing views and the delicious Greek food - we love the souvlaki, tzatziki, moussaka, yogurt with honey...the food is fresh, prepared with care and always very tasty. They also have great café frappé like in Greece. Fantastic new terrasse with breeze and shade, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff and owner. We love this place and warmly recommend it!

“Great surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

We were just looking for a breezy lunch and were amazed to find such a great spot! The food was delicious, especially the saganaki cheese and, of course, the tzatziki. Great western food as well. Will return soon!

“Better than expected!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

I was passing by Bang Bao and decided to eat at El Greco, right on the pier. My expectations were very low because I usually do not trust the restaurant who are ranked #1, and I was not hungry at this time.
The first contact is a well trained Thai/Cambodian team, who knows how to serve customers in a 5* restaurant. The owner is meeting all the customers and that's where you can say that Greece is one of best country for its hospitality. Mediterranean warm smile, charming, attention to detail and willing to satisfy every customers makes this restaurant a gem in a touristic place like Koh Chang. It is a family restaurant and you are welcomed like if you were a member of the family. The kitchen smells olives, peppers, feta, and I am already hungry.
Then you sit in one of the most amazing place you can eat in Koh Chang, with the infinite view of the Bang Bao bay, and its mountainous scenery and beaches!
When the food comes, you are in heaven. Imagine having great tasty Greek food, but not in Santorin: in Koh Chang?! It is like if a dream comes true. 2 of the best touristic destinations for their great food combined together!
I took "Greek stuffed tomatoes and peppers with rice and minced chicken". It was delicious. I am not a fan of peppers, specially raw in salad for example, but these were cooked at perfection and the taste was amazing. They do not add too much salt so that you can add yourself and if you are on died you can eat healthy.
I really enjoyed the place, the hospitality, the view and the food. If you are staying in Koh Chang and want to enjoy an orgasmic food experience, check this unique place, if you don't you will miss something.
