Ko Chang Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Ko Chang

July 15, 2017 Velvet Champine

Ko Chang means “Elephant Island,” and indeed, if you’d like an up-close-and-personal encounter with the world’s largest land mammal, you can do that here—you can even swim with them at Ban Kwan Chang, an elephant preserve recommended by TripAdvisor travelers. In the past few years, the island has experienced a huge boom in tourism, so new hotels and restaurants abound.

Very romantic place, we could have dinner on the beach and had a fantastic menu. The resort Manager himself took care of us and explained to us many things we wanted to know.
A „Must“ if you come to this island!!! And try the cocktails with Sinatra music!

Barrio Bonito

Nice restaurant with beautiful terrasse, modern Mexican decoration, authentic cuisine prepared by a Mexican chef, nice imported Tequila list and signatures cocktails...

Reviewed By fsantang - Luxembourg District, Luxembourg

We spent 12 nights in Klong Prao.We took a stroll down Kai Bae and spotted Barrio Bonito. We were surprised to see a Mexican restaurant in Koh Chang. We decided to give it a try. We were warmly welcomed by the friendly staff in this fascinating place and ordered some starters and main dishes. We tried also some signature cocktails. Food was excellent! We decided to pay a second visit to the restaurant and were not disappointed. It is likely the best culinary experience in Koh Chang. Highly recommended!

Reviewed By DawsonUK - Pattaya, Thailand

With only 3 nights in Koh Chang, this lovely Italian restaurant managed to pull us back for 2 dinners. Great Menu with Pastas and Pizzas, Carbonara, Bolognese, Kee Mao Talay, all were just perfect. The Pizzas were thin and crispy, full of flavour and perfect for a next day snack. Could not fault the service, even though it was by far the busiest place we saw during low season.

Highly rated restaurant with a great location. The food pictured on the menu looks delicious; however, the staff did not seem interested in helping us. We tried to get either of the two waiters over to our table to place an order unsuccessfully.
They did acknowledge us, but were too interested in whatever they were doing behind the counter, so we eventually left hungry.

Lisca Beach

I leave to you the description of Lisca Beach & Lisca Pizza ....

Reviewed By Niko L

Been here on my holiday in Ko Chang.
We stayed at really close Mercure resort for 1 week. Just one afternoon we discovered this small bar restaurant on the beach. They have an agreement with one local fisherman that everyday go to fishing with own small long tail boat than in the late afternoon came back and give the fishes to the restaurant. You can choose your fishes and they cooking for you ! This is Amazing !
After I discovered Lisca Beach every night me, my wife and my small son we was there for eat really fresh fish. Great Idea !
Next time in Ko Chang I'll not miss to visit again !
Last but not least I spent very nice time to talk with the Italian owner, is a very pleasant person and he know how to welcome the guest.
High reccomended.
Ciao !

Reviewed By juanaise53 - France

Situated just off the main road strip in the village, this small restaurant, run by Yaris, is a great find. The decor is very pretty, with a covered outside Terrace lit with fairy lights, everything spotlessly clean. The cocktails and food are all good quality and cooked Perfectly. This place is looked after, and the service professional.
