I'm still dreaming of the spring rolls. It's rare for me to rave about restaurant food, I'm easily underwhelmed. So, hear me when I say that these are the best spring rolls I've ever had. I would eat them again right now. The view is...also pretty great from the rooftop patio. Get there early for seats you can see the sunset from. Great pricing too.More

I had seafood curry for late lunch here and I regret it. The shrimps were frozen with a horrible texture like hard gummy rubber. The views are nice and the stuff friendly but I won't go there for more than a beer or a coffee

The view from the roof top bar is amazing. The atmosphere at Mona’s gives you that holiday feeling. The service is good and the staff is extremely friendly.

Limited food option but you will get a great good view which might makes your overall experience way better than other cafes.

Chicken curry and spring rolls were good! Nice views over the harbour, but very touristy. The service was great!

Mona’s rooftop is the perfect place to grab a drink or two with some friends and watch the sun go down. The food here is barely passable though, overpriced and all you’re getting for your money is a larger portion. (My Pad thai for example...came drowned in some watery liquid and was way overcooked) It hurts me to write a critical review of this place, as the Rooftop is one of the best places in town to be (awesome staff and drinks) Just don’t eat here!More

We were pleasantly surprised by the lovely decor of this place and the view is stunning. We were served quickly and got good recommendations from the staff. The burger was delicious but a little heavy on the garlic so we couldn’t finish it.

On the rooftop of Mona Hostel they have set up a rooftop bar. And they've done a great job. A fantastic out look over Cat Ba Bay with great food and drinks. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Go there for a beer and...watch the sunsetMore

This place is absolutely fantastic. The food was just excellent. Pumpkin soup, spring rolls, chicken curry all delicious, the fruit juices were perfect, and the music playlist they were playing while we were eating was a special bonus, all my favourite tracks. Awesome place to...have dinner 5/5More
