“Best Go-To Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

The Ocean Bar & Grill is very close to the Saigon Phu Quoc Resort so it's an excellent go-to restaurant with a cheaper menu than the resort and great staff. It's a little easy to miss because it's quite small but the food is quick and tasty. The total meal for 4 of us with drinks (wine and beer), an appetizer and two mango creme brules (I HIGHLY recommend finishing your dinner with these) was $50. For those who like wine, there is a wine store attached with a decent selection.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012 via mobile

After all the TA highly regarded reviews our group of 5 dined here on our last night in Phu Quoc. We were very disappointed in the food compared to like properties on the island. The crab cakes tasted old & oily. The serves were not generous but the service by Ahn was very good. It was also surprisingly pricey.

“Happy customer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012 via mobile

The service is amazing with great food and a good location. We had two lunch's and three dinners here we were that impressed. About must try the mango daquari and the calamari with soy and wasabi dipping sauce.

“Good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

We went here and enjoyed our time. The food I thought was average - good. The owner was super friendly and helpful. We had a good time. Finally a place with a decent wine selection. They had a longer list than most places in Vietnam. Definitely try out this place!

“So good we went twice in one day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

We came by for lunch, food was so lovely we came back for dinner. Delicious food. Very reasonable prices. Amazing cumquat daiquiris. Beautiful restaurant with great sea view. Staff were absolutely delightful, if you get the chance to talk to owner Michelle, make sure you do - she's loads of fun.
