Definitely visit this place! Love the seafood and although we picked a rainy night to visit, locals were great and food even better. Can't go wrong!

Still sitting in the restaurant having just had one our best lunches yet and had to share. After trying a number of places on An Bang and Cua Dai this is head and shoulders above the rest. Reasonably priced and beautifully presented, I would be more than happy to go down with this ship.

Tonight we ate at the white sails and had such wonderful food. The standout dish was the smoked eggplant and stuffed squid. The moon came up across the water, very beautiful . Staff we friendly and helpful.

We have had dinner at White Sail twice and the location is beautiful. Just above An Bang beach with great views, specially at night with all lights of the fishing boats in the distance. The food was also very good, but the portions are on the small side! The first night I had to wait quite a while for my... More

Had drinks on the beach and, later, a dinner at the restaurant proper. The drinks were serviceable but not spectacular, and the food menu was extensive. The outdoor space was lovely and new and we enjoyed the view of the ocean from our table. We found the seafood dishes (salt and pepper squid, coriander prawns) preferable to the others we... More

Having visited White Sail before, the recent brush up has made wonders. Before it was good, now it is excellent. Situated a few meters above the beach, the view of the ocean and Cham Islands are great. So is the food, spotless toilets, friendy staff and nice prices. White Sail have stiff competition by many good restaurants/cafes nearby, but is... More

We have eaten here a few times during our stay and will probably come back before we leave. Stunning views give this restaurant an amazing atmosphere. Food is delicious and well priced,although a little on the small side of servings. When you arrive at An Bang Beach turn to the left just before you reach the beach - there is... More

Beautiful setting for drinks at reasonable prices but the food was very disappointing. We ate tamarind crab, morning glory with garlic, and stuffed squid. Our high hopes were dashed as the crab was full of crushed bone with barely a mouthful of flesh and the classic simple dish of morning glory lacked taste.The squid however was delicious. Perhaps other choices... More

Perfect spot for a lazy lunch /dinner or afternoon cocktails. You won't want to go home . Food is great and service is also. Don't miss out on visiting this An Bang treasure.

The perfect spot after a swim at An Bang beach - they even have a shower and good bathroom facilities. The location is wonderful, with a view over the beach, distant islands and sunset. The staff speak good English. But the best is the food - a short menu of Vietnamese dishes, beautifully presented and very flavourful. We recommend the... More
