Description: Ithaca, written as Itaca in the Catalan language, is a shining Greek island that nestles in the heart of the Mediterranean. Full of history, romance and adventure and famous as the mythical home of Odysseus, the hero of Homers Odyssey. The tiny island invokes images of a different pace of life, far from the hustle and bustle of the 21st Century.Catalan culture is both our root and inspiration. Itaca is therfore a reflection of our individual personalities and passions, supported by our extensive international background in hospitality and a keen interest in the combination of cultures and regional specialties.A fusion of Asian and Mediterranean senses is our center-point and key to our standards. Using this foundation we bring something unique to Phu Quoc.Taking our inspiration from the Greek Islands and using the theme of white to represent purity, nature and freshness, we provide a destination on Phu Quoc Island for a new generation of travellers - those seeking something more than your average restaurant or bar. We provide our customers with a stylish, relaxing and peaceful environment - preparing their senses for an elegant and highly pleasurable experience.The focus of ITACA Lounge & Resto is ultimately 'chill out' at its core and stylish by its nature. A concept that fits perfectly with the island - a peaceful and relaxing destination that is the ideal location for balancing your thoughts and indulging your dreams.

“Must visit whilst on Phu Quoc.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

An experience in fine dining with the most outstanding decor. No visit would be complete if you did not treat yourself at least once.

“Classy lounge restaurant in Phu Quoc”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

First of all, it's really amazing that such a restaurant exists in Phu Quoc!!
The atmosphere is veeeery nice, lounge, relaxing. There is noses view but still you don't really miss it cause the whole place is sooo nice.
Nice music, delicious food. I had a sea bass with green curry and it was delicious. My friend had tuna tartar which was equally excellent and another friend had grilled tuna which was very very good too!
The food in general is a combination of Mediterranean ( and Spanish since there is a good choice of tapas) and Vietnamese cuisine!
After 10 days in Phu Quoc I have to admit that it has been the best experience in the island, so far. Clean place with very good service, nice music and the owners do take care of their customers. A place to come again for sure

“sensational food, fantastic service, exceptional concept. simply the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

we live on phu quoc island and simply put, this is the best place to eat. it is a completely new concept for the island, bringing a completely new set of standards to phu quoc. the staff are all very well trained, all capable of advising wines to go with the food aswell as making you feel special. the music is also chilled out and cool. the prices are very fair aswell. tapas starting at just over 4dollars a plate.... the malbec wine is delicious. the patatas bravas is divine. this really is the best restaurant on the island for me. keep up the good work.

“Great lounge bar!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Visited three times during our stay on the island. The ambiance is really cool and they play some good music.. Decor is very nice and I loved lanterns on the tree and Vietnamese hats on the walls, very nicely designed. We had diner one night and I will not recommend it tho. It is not that great. I had Thai green curry which was super salty and over seasoned, they also recommended patatas bravas as they told us they are exceptional.. Well potatoes roasted and covered with mayo and tomato sauce is not my idea of the dish!! Anyway food aside is great for the glass of white wine or a cocktail and for the funky open air bar area..

Dear Natcrobabe,

We would like to thank you for your time and energy since our guests' perspective is very important to us and so is your constructive feedback for everyone alike, our team as well as for readers and visitors from all around the world.

We are taking on board all the excellent comments regarding our lounge, ambiance and music, and we are very sorry that fail to impress you with our food.

About your green curry super salty and over seasoned, I am very sorry you didn’t report to us the day you had dinner as we had promptly replaced by another delicious dish. Being in our first month of operation we are completely aware that some small mistakes can arise that’s why we always ask for our guest’s feedback during the dinner.

By the other hand we do normally have very good comments about our curry sea bass as we are using an original Thai recipe but unfortunately maybe on that busy day it seems that it was not as good as normally. Thank you for pointing it out, and we will make sure that your remark is brought on board.

Concerning our “potatoes roasted with mayonnaise and tomato” only inform you that patatas bravas is one of the most famous and delicious tapas that we have in Spain. We are only receiving good reviews about our patatas bravas making the key point to suggest that dish. I hope that those bravas were not exceptional on elaboration but yummy.

Thank you once again for sharing your point of view with our readers, and we are sorry we were not able to please you entirely. Our team and I will continue working hard in our efforts to please every Itaca customer.

With kind regards,
Itaca Team
