Description: Ithaca, written as Itaca in the Catalan language, is a shining Greek island that nestles in the heart of the Mediterranean. Full of history, romance and adventure and famous as the mythical home of Odysseus, the hero of Homers Odyssey. The tiny island invokes images of a different pace of life, far from the hustle and bustle of the 21st Century. Catalan culture is both our root and inspiration. Itaca is therefore a reflection of our individual personalities and passions, supported by our extensive international background in hospitality and a keen interest in the combination of cultures and regional specialties.A fusion of Asian and Mediterranean senses is our center-point and key to our standards. Using this foundation we bring something unique to Phu Quoc.Taking our inspiration from the Greek Islands and using the theme of white to represent purity, nature and freshness, we provide a destination on Phu Quoc Island for a new generation of travellers - those seeking something more than your average restaurant or bar. We provide our customers with a stylish, relaxing and peaceful environment - preparing their senses for an elegant and highly pleasurable experience.The focus of ITACA Lounge & Resto is ultimately 'chill out' at its core and stylish by its nature. A concept that fits perfectly with the island - a peaceful and relaxing destination that is the ideal location for balancing your thoughts and indulging your dreams.

“You have to go there!! :) The most delicious food, the sweetest staff/owners, and the best atmosphere!!”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

My boyfriend and I travelled in Vietnam for 3 weeks during january and february 2014 and stayed on the Phu Quoc Island for 10 days. I found Itaca restaurant/lounge on Tripadvisor (I love the Spanish kitchen) and we went there, the first time, on our second evening.
During our stay on Phu Quoc we ended up eating dinner there approximately 5-6 times and even when we did not have dinner there, we ended up finishing our nights there, because of the coffee and delicious deserts. We became the guests of the week ;))) The food is wonderfull, the atmosphere is relaxing and romantic and the owners and staff were so nice!! I MISS IT ALL, SO DO NOT MISS THIS, IF YOU ARE GOING TO THE ISLAND! :)) We will definitely come back, if going to Vietnam again, otherwise we will see you guys in Spain!

Kindest regards from Denmark,
Daniel and Katja

“Deserves No.1 status, excellent surprise in elegant surroundings”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

What a find this was on Phu Quoc Island. We went there early on in our stay after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. It certainly didn't disappoint, the food was absolutely excellent. One of the reviews had spoken highly of the goats cheese salad, which was our favourite too (although many other dishes ran it close). We fancied having a break from Vietnamese food, and going with some Tapas was just the job. The price is a little high, especially compared to other establishments in the area, but this is a case of you get what you pay for in our opinion. If your budget will stretch to it then I'd highly recommend you give it a go.

We rarely go to the same restaurants twice when we travel, always wanting to try something different, but we returned to Itaca on our last night as we just had to try the great food again - and that goats cheese salad!

The setting is great too, really well thought out and takes you a world away from the main road on which it is located. I couldn't recommend this place enough.

“Very disappointed”
Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

In fact, the place is quite nice and makes you want to go. And in fact, the food is not bad. But according to what you get in the plates, prices become quite expensive. So are the drinks. However the staff is definitely professional and all of them speak good english but that is not enough. For sure the project was ambitious but the result ain't there. So if you want some good tapas, you better go to Spain...

“Amazing Food”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

The food here is fantastic. Just when you thought you needed a break from Vietnamese food, we found this place.

The setting is beautiful, the staff excellent, but the food is what makes this place great. I had the tapas, you only need 2 each!!

Its a shame it wasn't busy, because that did have an effect on the atmoshphere. There was only a few tables there when we went and therefore it didn't have a buzz about it, but apart from that highly recommended.
