“Buddy's is "The bomb"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

After travelling through the Mekong and arriving on the beautiful island of Phu Quoc my wife was in need of some comfort food. After reading great reviews we popped into Buddy's and my wife fell in love with the place. The menu was simple, the food delicious and the staff were faultless.
We had the pleasure of meeting Rohan and Duong, the owners. We were having trouble with arranging flights (on the free computers) and Rohan stepped in and sorted it out for us. We then had a coffee and a chat and Rohan highlighted some of the islands features on our map and explained the best way to make the most of them. His info was spot on and I have to say that the only bad time we had on Phu Quoc was arriving at the airport to leave. If you need some comfort food, some information or just somewhere to relax and watch the locals go about their business make sure you pop into Buddy's.

“NZ Icecreams”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Great selection of icecream and drinks - just the tonic on a warm day. Also free internet, but the "Tourist Information Centre" was a bit of a overstatement - we were expecting more in the way of info and assistance regarding tours and activities on the island.
