The food is great and so is the atmosphere! Great place to hang out and a nice break from Thai food.

Great atmosphere and extremely friendly staff. I loved stopping by for a burrito and margarita on my way back to my bungalow! If you like Mexican food, you'll definitely want to eat here!

“Wow! Fantastic and authentic Mexican food in Thailand - great atmosphere and staff too!”
Reviewed June 24, 2010

Superb food with ingredients that are hard to find in Thailand. Wonderful staff, cool decor and atmosphere, and VERY tasty. Good location - and easy to find - you cant miss it, look out for the large sign on the right if coming from town..

BEST margaritas (8 types) and other drinks. The owner Ando can steer you to everything you might need on the island because he has been there for years - hotels, full moon parties, Muay Thai, transportation, tips to have fun on the island etc. Everything on the menu is overwhelmingly good. Their dishes blends imported Mexican spice and Fresh local ingredients to bring you vibrant Mexican flavors that are impossible to find in Asia. I especially like the Chimichanga, Quesadillas, Mexican Shrimp Scampi and Tequila Lime Shrimp. Yum! Prices are good and this is also a cool place to meet other travelers.

“It's hard to find delicious Mexican food...”
Reviewed June 24, 2010

It's hard to find delicious Mexican food so far from home, luckily I found the place! If I had to describe how the food tastes, I can sum it up like this, "It's like getting a hug-only from the inside." The laid back atmosphere complete with pool table and ping pong led me to a long night of margaritas and good music. A great place to bring your family.

“Great place, food, and people”
Reviewed June 23, 2010

I recently visited the island for a full moon party. I was pleasently suprised to find high quality mexican food and such friendly service. Nothing like a burrito to cure a night out on the town. The owner is a real nice guy too, I think his name is Ando. Give it a shot you will not be disappointed.
