“Better value than the overpriced resort restaurant”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

We stayed four nights in the Blue Ocean Resort in Phan Thiet/Mui Ne. The restaurant in the resort has very lofty ideas about food and drink prices, so we stepped outside and looked across the road for an alternative eatery. Ignoring the restaurant with the ostentatious Russian signboards, crossing the road and going to the right we encountered the small restaurant Mermaid. We decided to have a try. The menu is extensive; there are sections for beef, pork, chicken, fish, noodles, pasta, western food, sandwiches, etc. the prices are low, even the prices for the drinks are laughable inexpensive. The food is well prepared and the service is attentive but a bit inexperienced. As we were satisfied with the food and the value for money we dined there 4 times. A curious fact is, that on the menu were dishes with different kind of fish, snapper, tuna and unspecified fish. In practice the Mermaid restaurant has one kind of (tasty) fish. I can recommend this small, quiet restaurant as a perfect alternative for the overpriced resort.
