Description: We are open all day till late, we serve food till 10pm but we have been known to serve food at 2am*###WARNING###* There is another Safari bar just opened near night market, this has nothing to do with my bar, they are just using my name to get customers, they dont have a pool table or English speaking staff, so if you do end up there im very sorry.Lee (owner)

I spent four days on Phu Quoc and was very fortunate to find the Safari Bar. I enjoyed it so much that I went back every evening for supper. The food is that good! Everything is cooked fresh and has that homemade taste that's such a treat to enjoy while travelling. From hamburgers to stir fry to sweet & sour... More

We visited Lee's Safari restaurant for dinner one evening. Great food - which takes a while, however when you receive the food it's clear to see why it takes time - everything is cooked from fresh. Some good local knowledge from Lee as well. We would definitely visit again.

We stopped by for a drink and a light snack one night as we were staying close by and wanted to have a change of scenery. The restaurant is in close walking distance to a number of hotels and is right off the main road so easy to find. When we arrived we were the only people there as June... More

Phu Quoc is a gorgeous island. We moved here 2 months ago to live, and we love it. Food is getting boring though - focused towards tourists in most places, usually poorly cooked convenience food or cheap ingredients, or overcooked unseasoned seafood at a high price. Both Western and local. We made a point of trying as many places as... More

We were fortunate enough to be staying close to the Safari Restaurant. The British owner and Vietnamese wife have created a very fine and varied menu. We especially liked the chicken with garlic and lemongrass. All the chicken was boned and of high quality. We also ordered the mixed vegetables that happened to include pineapple. The two dishes paired extremely... More

We were really happy to find this place, and quite frankly speak to another Westerner after days of getting tongue tied. There is a good selection of drinks and the meals are huge. Worth the wait, and freshly done. The bar looks really cool as well and I enjoyed the music. It was free to use the pool table and... More

My partner and I spent a month on Phu Quoc and after following advice from a friend in Hoi an, we found ourselves at Lee's Safari Bar... hands down the best bar on Phu Quoc.
