“Would probably avoid!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

Unfortunately we have been here twice because of the location, but the food and service really isn't great! We waited both times for over an hour for our meals, but the food came out cold and about 30 minutes apart? Even though they initially said that the meals would be only ten minutes, and then forgot one order - wouldn't visit again!

good place to relax. food and service is not that good, but worth to before sunset and enjoy afternoon sunshine.

“terrible service and no management”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

my wife and i have frequented this restaurant several times. however, each time we go there the service seems to go down a notch. the last time was the final straw. before our last visit we were seated near the pool. no one came to wait on us at all. my wife walked over to the counter and asked if we could have a waiter bring us a menu. they told my wife they were too busy to serve at our location by the pool. we have been served there on numerous occasions before. and they were NOT busy at all this time. plus, no one ever bothered to come tell us that we could not be served...they just let us sit there unknowingly.

this last time we sat down at our table and waited for a menu. at least 10 minutes passed by with not so much as even a hello or any acknowledgement that we were even there. and all the time waiters and waitresses were constantly walking by our table. no menu, no hello, no attempt to communicate at all...so we just got up and left.

language is not a barrier here...it is mismanagement and a lack of restaurant knowledge by the staff. like i said, it has been steadily been going down hill for a while now. so do yourself a favor and dine somewhere else.

“Worst service!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

Staff are clueless and it's not just a language problem. I hadn't even finished my meal before the waitress presented the bill. She kept following me around like a hawk even while I was in the pool!

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

We live very close to Temple Da Nang and really want to enjoy this place but time and time again it disappoints with bad service, bad food and bad value for money. They have the beach front views, they have the facilities and the location so we desperately want to like this place but after 4 or 5 disappointing visits where we were served terrible food or we had to wait 45 min for a burger we have had enough. It is bad enough being charged 60'000 Dong for a lounger even when you are buying their food and drinks. But the worst is when a friend comes and sits on the sand and they try and charge them for sitting there. Or when you book a teacher, parents, kids day with $12 buffet and the food is terrible and is bought out so sporadically that people are left standing around with no plates or cutlery. Unfortunately when designing their perfect business,the owners only got as far as location. They forgot that running a good restaurant also means service and quality. Temple Bar lack both of these and we will not return.
