“Not worth the cab fare”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2012

Poor value for money. A medium sized crab set us back more than 500,000 dong, which is a lot more than we should be paying in Vietnam. The seafood fried rice we had was also fairly average, while our vegetable dish was decent but really nothing special.
They also forgot to add noodles to our crab dish, but that aside the service was ok.
Location was also an issue, as the place is somewhat removed from hue city centre.
Overall, not recommended.

“Not impressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2012

Being from Hong Kong, we're very particular about our seafood. Based on reviews on tripadvisor, we were eager to try it out. The food is not bad, but choices are limited and we were not that impressed overall. Snails and eel were good, the fish (forgot which one) was rather uninspiring for our taste, and the shrimps just bland.

It's a bit overpriced for what it is. At the end they tried to short-change us by 100,000 Dong. We ordered a taxi and showed the waiter on our map exactly where we wanted to go downtown. Instead the taxi driver drove us back to our hotel, which was far away from downtown, so we ended up paying double for our ride. We only realized it shortly before going into the street leading to our hotel. Things like that can happen, but it left a sour note.

If you seldom have the opportunity to eat fresh seafood, you might want to try it still. As I said, the food is not bad, but by no means outstanding. This was the most expensive dinner we had in Vietnam, but certainly not the best.

“Highly recommended for simple, very fresh, seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

Just been there for dinner, based on Tripadvisor reviews. Agree with the majority - this place is great for simply cooked, very fresh, seafood. We had steamed snapper and crab with noodles and both were beautifully fresh and delicately prepared. The service couldn't have been friendlier and a taxi back to town appeared in no time.

“Great seafood - worth every Dong!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2011

When travelling I love local restaurants with quality food. In this restaurant you find it!!!
By taxi, it is a 10 minutes drive to this superb restaurant. The first impression was very good, since it is clean and there were only Viatnamese. All the fish and seafood served you get absolutely fresh out of the restaurant's fish tanks.
We had snails in lemon grass and chili (the best!), deep-fried red snapper, crab and water spinach. All of them delicous. In addition, they have a great service. With a bottle of white wine for only 15 euro per person! An absolute must-go for all who love good, fresh and authentic food.
