Description: A great little find in Vung Tau serving a wide range of international and local dishes with icy cold beer. It is just around the corner from the Skyluck and CoBa hotels and a few 100m along from Hong Binh and Binh An apartments, so a convenient breakfast hangout with the best poached eggs in town. Mainly frequented by long time expats and wisened short stayers.

“Best food and service in all of Vung Tau”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Service and quality with a smile. Good western, Vietnamese and asian menu with the best pumpkin soup I've ever had! Ms Luyen and her colleagues run an efficient, friendly, great food establishment. Good Dalat wine and other drinks are also available. We visit here every week and the meals are always superb and prepared quickly. This is one of those places that you always get quality for your money, and they have have WI-FI!...

Only eaten here during a progressive dinner that was organised as a charity event. The food was very tasty and the service was great.

“Best place in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

I have tried a few of the dishes from this excellent menu and been impressed by them all. There is an amazing selection covering all Western and Asian styles.
The friendly and efficient service is amazing also. As soon as you walk in, you are greeted, and if you've been there before, the owner Miss Luyen will remember your name and make your visit memorable. She is a very helpful person and it seems nothing is too much trouble for her to keep her customers happy.
This is a great place and one that I will visit every time I am in Vung Tau

“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

I am surprised after reading lots of Vung Tau reviews that this one is 22 out of 23! I have eaten here twice or three times a week since July 2012 and have always been delighted with my meal. Although lately, I mostly get deliveries to my apartment, Miss Luyen is never less than friendly and professional. She has the skill of remembering your name from your first visit! The food is as good or better than most western places in Vung Tau with a comparable menu - I recommend the sweet and sour prawns, baked prawns with mash (bliss) and stir fried beef or seafood noodles as my favourites. The Watering Hole is in an out of the way, but central location, and you can order decent wine by the glass or a very cold beer, at reasonable prices.

“GREAT FOOD, COLD BEER AND EXCELLENT SERVICE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012 via mobile

I visited the Watering Hole Restaurant in Vung Tau whilst holidaying in Vietnam and escaping winter in Sydney, and I have to say I was impressed. The Western and Vietnamese food served here was a cut above other places I had eaten at in Vietnam and the value was outstanding. There was also plentiful cheap COLD beer, and great service! I got some great advice about things to see and do in Vung Tau. The owner was extremely helpful as this was my first time here. I was even able to rent a reasonably
motorbike for less than $5 per day!! She was even happy to find decent accommodation for me. I quickly learnt If there is anything I need done or need to in Vung Tau the place to go is the Watering Hole Restaurant!
