“Great food and service!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Tried to get a table at barracuda (next door) but it was full so decided to try Chaba Tapas.

Buy a drink and get a free tapa happy hour is great.

Had great chicken pad thai and other people in the party enjoyed their thai / Asian food.

“The best afternoon drink place in koh tao thailand”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

This is a nice drink and food place. For each alchool drink you get a free tapas. Tapas are like a small plate of french fries, garlic bread, no name vegetables (my favorite), a bruschetta, onion rings, etc. All free and very nice. The happy hour starts from 4pm to 8pm. Besides de the alchool and free tapas, they also have very nice food if you want to try. A very good experience, and the staff is very nice.

“Very average”
Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

We were lured in with the free tapas with each drink special during happy hour.

The free snacks and discounted drinks made it amazing value but the food was bland and not very fresh.

The atmosphere was also lacking as the place doesn't get many diners.

There are much better options in Koh Tao

“genuine Thai food”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Chaba Tapas is one of the best restaurants to eat in Koh Tao. It has an excellent selection of both Thai and Western food. The ingredients are fresh. (food arrives at regular intervals by motorbike courier). The chef is the owner and boss, her name is Na. For those that don't know....tapas is food with beer, so when a beer is ordered you can chose from one of a dozen or so tantalizing tasty bites, yum (one of my favourites being the no name chicken). You will find yourself going back every day or so for a well priced good meal. It is situated in one of the main streets of Sairee village (near the ladyboy bar) and has a great view of the passing street traffic. Lately the street has been closed off after 5.00pm for pedestrian traffic only, which in my opinion increases the atmosphere.
