“Not enough pizza in a pizza cafe?!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

We went with a group of 12 eating here. They had only 8 pizzas left and it looked like the restaurant had not enough capacity for such a group. The pizza's tasted not very special. The strawberry juice however was nice. Interior was OK.. I think that it would be a good place to eat when you are with a small group, but we will not come back again.

Dear FemkeVonP,

Thank you for your time to review of our bar, I am sorry for your inconvenience that did not meet your expectation. Pizza cafe and our staff always work hard to make our customers happy. The fact our cafe is not a big restaurant but can be enough for 15 - 17 people at the same time. Of course, there were just 7 pizza was available for your group that it doesn't mean our cafe is evaluated as poor value. For an example, 12 of you want to book Son Doong cave tour - the biggest cave, but there are 7 pax can book it because 7 permits are left.

Hope you had happy time wih our daily tour run by Phongnha Discovery to see Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park the day after.

All the best

“2 minute instant noodles??!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

6 of us went there for dinner ordered various soups and astonishing it was instant noodles - in Vietnam! Menu was in Vietnamese and English but even so they still got the pizza's wrong which were pretty horrible. Definitely NOT worth the price - go to the minimart and buy your own 2 minute noodles.

Dear 981Jason,

Thanks for your review anyway. I am disapointed about your review of our cafe. Our cafe and staff work hard to make all customers satisfied. I know you told instant noodle is not good and should not be available on our menu. I understand that but our menu is for both Vietnamese and Western customers. Instant noodle costs 25,000 VND (1.2 USD) up to 40,000 VND (1,9 USD). It is cheap option for someone want to have that option. You can not blame our cafe because menu is clear with picture of food description. You could choose Spagetti if you wanted. As I know you did not order Pizza at our cafe, please do not comment the things you have not used yet.

Anyway, thank you again for your comments. Pizza cafe will belive that many things shold be improved and can make it better for customer expectation.

“Phong cave trekking tour review”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

My friends and I went through these guys to do the trekking tour to phong nha caves which was an absolute natural highlight of our month in Vietnam. We had guides, a national park officer and many porters take us on this over night tour to the largest cave opening in the world! They were extremely friendly, funny and catered to our needs! They carried all the supplies, cooked for us, cleaned and set up our tents. They took us through the caves and stayed up all night with us drinking rice wine. Good times indeed.
The pizza cafe is modern and my pizza was pretty good for Vietnamese standards. We shared a beer with Jimmy, one of the tour guides, and had a chat with the boss who is an absolute champion. Wonderful experience, thanks very much crew!!

“Much information, good food, cold beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We requested a stop in Dong Hoi from our Bus tour from Hue to Hanoi, because we wanted to visit Phong Nha National Parc. The bus stopped in front of this little restaurant. The Owner (bold guy with big arms) asked us about our visit here. He had a good understanding of English and showed us a card with all kinds of tours we could take to visit Phong Nha. Our initial plan was to rent a motorbike ourselves and ride straight to the caves. He talked us out of it because of the dangerous roads and the traveltime (we saw an bad motorbike accident on the way to the caves). The tour we eventually took led us to two caves (Phong Nha and Paradise cave) and had a small stop in between to go for a swim in the blue/greenish river. A traditional vietnamees lunch was included aswell as all the entrance fees. Total cost 1.500.000 vnd for 2 persons. Other options are to go further and deeper into the caves with close to zero other tourists(2day tours).

Long story short: little place with lots of GENUINE information. Plus the tours are a lot cheaper than the ones in Hue.
