“Fabulous place to chill during the day and relax in the evening”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

What a jewel,1st time to nha trang and the watering hole really made my evenings very relaxing and pleasant,they serve the coldest beer ever which is much required after a hot day.the owner paul is a wealth of information and great to talk to,the girls in the bar are always quick,lovely and work hard. The food on the menu is very limited but excellent with the best chips I have ever tasted and if you want a Sunday roast this place will not be beaten for quality and value.
I would recommend the watering hole to any fellow travellers and families because it really is a jewel in the nha trang centre

“Best Bar in the Street,,”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Its my 2nd visit to Nha Trang and drank in here a few times in Jan, Just back now and its still as good as ever, the beers are the coldest in Nha Trang, they know how to keep the beers cold, prices good, the food is good too, try the chicken bagguette, very nice with a cold beer while watching the football on a sat or sunday, also they turn the music down so you can here the commentary which is great,, the girls their are very nice and well mannered,, If you like warm beer, cold food at higher prices and miserable girls, then I suggest that you pay a visit to the Booze Cruise, one of the most overrated bars in Asia nevermind Vietnam.....
Also it was great going back to see Malcom the owner,, I didnt recognise him without his ponytail,he looks 2 years younger now,, always have a good conversation and craic with him,, Just wish hed buy me the odd beer,,,,,,lol,,,,, overall, great friendly place,,,

“Good pub”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

A good bar with reasonable prices (20,000 dong or 66 pence for a large Saigon beer), frequented by ex pats and tourists alike. Well worth a visit.

“Cold beer and honest food”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

This bar is in the old lanterns restaurant. It's airy and honest. The beer is cold and cheap and the food honest and filling. My husband ordered the burger which was huge and cooked medium exactly as he asked for it and home made. I ordered the chilli and chips which came in a bowl. Chilli covered with piping hot chilli which was tasty but could of been more spicy. The bar is frequented by old expat men which is ok as it gives it a local pub feel. My only objection is the young vietnamese girls in booty shorts and sparkly tops with little or no English but obvious attributes!
