It was hard to find but we thoroughly enjoyed our experience there. Watching the sunset while having tacos and fish n chips, where else can you get this in vietnam? They have a good variety of western food and the staff are expats so English not a problem.

It's a nice but it's not really worth to go there twice. The food is ok and the stuff is very friendly. It looks bad due to roaming animals.

If you planned to visit Nha Trang, this place is definitely a must go. After a lovely ride in the mountains which offers stunning spots on the bay, I ended up in The Shack which is a laid-back place to hang out on the beach, set back from the city crowd. Beyond the nice atmosphere, the food was delicious and... More

Travelled by taxi from Nha Trang. Large shrimps were lovely but no better than in many restaurants in NT. Shack was fine and service was efficient and staff pleasant. All in all nothing special however and the shacks in general are no where near as good as shacks in Goa in India.

Been there for the second time, almost the whole week. It's what you expect from a beach and surf shack: Great food, particularly seafood, cooked on BBQ on your table, great cocktails, fresh beer and the always great french couple who run the place. Take a swim and your drink will be on your table as soon as you come... More

Imagine that; a French couple in Vietnam serving Mexican food!!! How cool is that? The Shack is not just a restaurant, it is more an institution. Ok, when you are based in Nha Trang, you need about 30-35 Min to get there no matter with motorbike or Taxi. It is easy to get there by Bike as soon as you... More

"I just spent 1 month in Nha Trang ans I went at The Shack in bai dai beach many times. This is one of the most beautiful beach I ever seen in my life and the water is crystal clear! The Shack is definitely the perfect place to spend the day in Bai Dai (and even in Nha Trang!), strong... More

We stayed in beautiful Mia resort and took the short taxi ride to The Shack a couple of times to get away from the resort (which is beautiful but sometimes you want a change of scenery). The place is a great hangout with fun guests and laid back atmosphere. It's right on the beach and sometimes your feet get wet!... More
