The Dolphin offers a good-sized menu offering your typical bar food (burgers, tex mex, sandwiches and so on) at an affordable price. They offer specials every night of the week (eg. On Wednesdays choose any one item from the tex mex menu and get a pint of tiger beer for 55元. Please note that items on the tex mex menu... More

Moving from a major Chinese City to Sanya was due to work. Dophin Bar was our "OK" place to go for a nice burger and some western food. HOWEVER, as the only western bar in town you expect some english speaking service or at least over the phone....been trying to enquire about something within the bar for the last two... More

My partner and I stayed in Sanya for 3 weeks, most nights we ate at Dolphin as they have a different meal deal each night (55RMB for meal + draft beer). The food is wonderful, especially the burgers. I was pleasantly surprised to find they also served dishes garnished with blue cheese, as it's been hard/expensive to get my cheese... More

10yrs! I loved having "proper" western food for a change. But if u r coming from the west for gods sake eat Chinese!!! That's why u came, right? For something different!!! Service was better than most places in China. Met some interesting characters too :)

We spent three nights in Sanya and we ate here every night! Having been in China for several months and traveling, we were looking for Western food. This place filled the bill beautifully! We had our choices between hamburgers, pizza, lasagna and so forth that tasted like you were back in the US! The wait staff were so friendly AND... More

Needed somewhere that did a decent western meal to give our stomachs a rest from chilli and garlic, came here for lunch, good burgers, don't think it's expensive compared with some other places we've eaten at, good service, tasty food. If we were staying in sanya for another day we'd come back here.

Horrendous! Apart from bring vastly over priced, the staff isn't particularly helpful (to say the least) and the place is filled with seedy characters. If there's one place to stay clear of during your trip to Sanya, it's this one!

Had lunch here a couple of times and food is fine, drinks fine and service all fine. If you want some Western Fayre in the midst of heavily Chinese cuisine/beverages, this fits the bill perfectly.

Our hotel recommended this and it wasn't great but not terrible. The atmosphere is more middling Midwest sports bar than tropical vacation bar/restaurant. Smokey even in the afternoon and dark inside. We felt like we were entering Mo's Bar from the Simpsons. Chicken strips had a weird artificial taste, poutine had black olives in it... Quesadilla was ok. Wait staff... More
