This fab little restaurant and bar never ceases to amaze. The owners are nice and very welcoming as are all the staff. The food is always cooked to perfection and the drinks delightful. Music is easy on the ears.

Great place, great music. Had dinner here on our second to last night and kids want to go back again. Free drinks for diners was a fab bonus although we did feel a little guilty each time we ordered. Prices reasonable and spring rolls the best! We had fish curry, burgers and chicken in satay sauce. The curry was delicious... More

Didn't expect too much to be honest, it was completely empty when we went for lunch. I had the vegetable curry and it was absolutely delicious, the flavour was pretty unbelievable considering it took 3 minutes to get to the table. My partner had noodles with beef which was also nice. Price is reasonable I think for the island, 150'000... More

Nothing to complain about concerning food and service. But why has the environment have to be so shabby?! How hard can it be to clean up the place? Throw away those horrible half dead plants and remove the Christmas decoration (or whatever it is). We are in a tropical climate where everything grows, so if you want to have flowers,... More

The fresh seafood cooked here is delicious but let's be honest, the free drinks at happy hour (6-8) are the main selling point. Not only is it just one free drink, you can get as many as you want. You'd think the free drinks would inflate the price of the food, but it really doesn't. A fillet of really nicely... More

They really know how to make red snapper! So good! They barbecue fish of the day out on the street. One of the best meals we have had during our 4 weeks in Vietnam and a cosy restaurant and a open kitchen so you can watch them work. The waitors speak bad english but it worked out well in the...

Their deep fried spring rolls here are killer. And free happy hour from 6-8 is pretty great too. The portions here aren't huge but the Asian food I had was good. Better places in phu quoc to find a burger but their buns were good. The staff is all really friendly and good here as well.

Off the main road Palm tree is a must go to place. Offering a wide variety of food such as seafood, curries, Western dishes and of course the usual Vietnamese. A good selection of vegetarian options as well. Happy hour is from 6-8 which offers a selection of drinks for FREE and UNLIMITED. Prices are very reasonable too!

We spend almost every evening at the palm tree restaurant! The food is really delicious and the cocktails are free between 6-8 pm ( we really enjoyed that 😉)! It's definitely a must-do when you are on the island ! The staff is so friendly and welcomed us back every evening, even though we felt like we sometimes tried their... More
