“Decent Food and Good Location”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

We were 7 people for lunch, the location is good, nice seaview and confortable rattan chairs, extensive menu with western and local food, we had a fried rice, some pasta, lasagna, grilled fish. The pasta were great (macaronni and cheese, spaghetti carbonara, lasagna). The fried rice was average (lack of taste). The fish was fresh and tasty.

The service is minimum, the staff speaks a basic english so it was fine.

The only issue was that all the dishes came at different time, so i finished my rice and my friends did not had any food served..

I would recommend the place for the pricing quality and location.

“Legendary vets bar in Vungers”
Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

Dundees, what can i say.. Classic. My fav chill joint in Vung Tau, probably VNam. Early coffee, arvo beers, dinner and a quiet night (closes about 10pm), with my favourite view out over the south china sea / vietnamese east sea. Sunset is tops. Under new management 2013, Joe is one of the most laid back, great hosts.. True darwinite! He's got a class of his own! Once anchored offshore in the bay during the war, if you ask he might just share a story or twoof his experiences while taking in some of the fantastic war era images around the walls. If you're a vet, family or friend, just curious, go check out Dundees. Always a good yarn to be had.

“Great familiar food”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Good prices and nice staff. Relaxed and friendly, really cold beer. So far during my visit I have tried the BBQ pork ribs, Aussie burger, chicken strips and pancakes. All were excellent, and great value. Vietnamese iced coffee and milk shakes are also on the menu. Definitely the place to go if you are looking for some familiar comfort food. Terrific location, too.

“Great tucker!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

I blew into Vung Tau not knowing anyone and stopped at Dundees Bar for a drink while I got my bearings. By the time I left, I had a hotel, a motorbike and a support group of great Aussie and NZ veterans helping me.

Dundees is well run, friendly and serves great food and icy cold beer. The prices are fantastic. Staff are very attentive and speak quite good English.

Dundees burgers are great, and the BBQ pork spare ribs are the best I had in Vietnam. Dundees also offer sausages locally made by an Aussie butcher, yum!

Another lovely feature is its location. You can sit and watch the sun go down over the ocean, while enjoying a cool sea breeze and a cold beer.

Thanks guys, I'll be back soon.

“Must visit”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Great menu, friendly staff, have a chat to the new owner, good old fair dinkum Aussie bloke. Good menu, nice food and value for money. Enjoyed a cold beer with a beautiful view of the ocean and sea breeze. Love this place. You can sit down and not be hassled by anyone and just relax.
