At front of a backpackers hostel. Incredible value and worth 4 stars if you choose the right things, Ate there 3 times - one superb, one OK and the other disappointing. Next to the road but always busy early in the evening. Good service.

The food here was good actually but the place has little charm and the waiter was just miserable and didn't cheer up till I pointed out he had missed off a drink. Lol. Just usual local fare around 700000 for a main course

We only came here for a drink and a game of pool and the prices were good, staff were excellent and the drinks tasted amazing. Would recommend this bar to anyone looking to have a good time.

Small eating place (avoiding intentionally the word restaurant) with a very helpful lady owner that seems to be having almost everything on the extremely large Asian & European menu...whatever you can think of, she answers " yes we can make it". As you can expect in cases like this one, the food is average and not very exciting - but... More

This place has become our number 1 restaurant. Tasty and honest Vietnamese cuisine at about half the cost of what the neighbouring venues are charging. At newyears eve the kitchen was closed when we arrived but the chef went back to the kitchen and cooked us a tasty seafood rice dish anyways. Staff is very polite and friendly. Definitely our...

This restaurant is not here it's closed and replaced by Ngoc Mai, exact same address. I would recommend you dine at the new one, it's is a family run business and the food is great.

We had our dinner here 5 times over our 24 days in Phu Quoc. A very friendly brother and sister team. He's a terrific cook and we enjoyed the crab spaghetti and ribs. The cook always comes out to your table to see how you enjoyed the meal. On Valentine's day the ladies received a red rose and free dessert,... More

Ate here on our last night on Phu Quoc after reading about it in a travel book. Did not disappoint! The food was excellent, the service was excellent and the price was right. We had friends who were going to join us and then didn't and we debated telling them how good it was so they wouldn't be upset! We... More
