“Great service & good value”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

We came here twice while in HCMC. The first time was because we were craving an american breakfast and the second time just for drinks (though we ended up ordering a pizza).

Service is great - Ki Ki and Qui looked after us when we went for drinks, including preparing the "biggest cocktail in Vietnam" - a massive cosmo that boasts a pint of vodka alone!

The breakfast is awesome (especially if you're like us and don't think your stomach can handle noodle soup first thing in the morning). Big portions, quick service and food was really good.

Worth a visit if you need a quick break from Vietnamese food or just want to spend some time in a pub atmosphere.

Breakfast was about $6 USD (bacon, eggs, hashbrown, tomato, toast) and drinks were averaging between $3-5 USD.

“Typical Irish bar.”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Bernie's is a typical Irish bar in Ho Chi Minh. It is run by vietnamese and has all the usual Irish trappings all round. Gaelic football on the tv. Setanta re-runs. Irish tunes playing in the back ground. Price were ok and the food quite acceptable. Not many Irish in evidence. There was another Irish pub in this area two years ago called Sheridans but it seems to be gone now.

“Certainly a bar to visit”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

This is up there as one of the friendliest pubs in Saigon. The service is excellent and the proprieters are courteous and welcoming. I would recommend this bar. And the food is awesome

“Would not call this and Irish pub though.”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

They play Irish music that's all.
I've had quite a few meals in this bar and they have all been good.
Very good selection of whiskey.
Good service and attentive staff.
Not cheap but reasonably priced imo.

“Great selection of whiskey and superb Irish music”
Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

Bernie's is a fun pub oasis in Saigon. The music is just right to have a conversation and still appreciate Bernie's personal mix. Good expat crowd and some locals too. Bernie was in the bar and took the time to hang out with us and made great whisky recommendations.

Could do without all the cigarette smoking - we smelled like smoke when we left. I'm sure that will change eventually.
