Description: This is a fabulous, newly opened restuarant along the main road in Duong Dong, near the beach and many resorts. The food is all homemade, including the warm bread and jam! While we stayed in Phu Quoc, we noticed that many customers, including my wife and I, came back to this delightful place more than once. The Swedish owners and Vietnamese staff are friendly and welcoming and will do all they can to make your stay on the island a memorable one.

“Delicous tapas and vino!”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

We very much enjoyed the tapas - beets were a table favorite! - and wine at this restaurant. The owner is lovely as well. Prices were reasonable, location and atmosphere pleasant.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Loved Mondo Restaurant. The tapas were all good quality and very tasty, and the staff were friendly. It was not the cheapest restaurant, but it was definitely worth the money.

“Another winner on Phu Quoc”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I don't know about you, but I tend to eat a different type of food most days when I'm at home, so as delicious as the local food might be, I find after a whole it's a little "same same". Mondo will help infuse some other flavours into your diet.

Others have commented that it's expensive, but it seemed to be pretty on par with any proper restaurant here (as opposed to plastic stools at a collapsible table type eating). Phu Quoc is not a backpacker paradise, the food at most places seems to be aimed at the mid-range traveller, which most seem to be.

After a beyond dreadful experience across the street at PQ Sushi (see my other review) I was starving. I had an incredible penne pasta with blue cheese cream sauce and smoked ham, garnished with tomato. My dining companion, still hungry after his tiny sushi had the bacon wrapped dates with blue cheese. We both enjoyed our food immensely and decided on the spot that we would be back to try some of the other dishes.

The place was empty when we were there and it deserves to be bustling. At the time of our visit they were also offering 10% off between 5-7pm. If you're counting every dong that's how you can perhaps bring it into your price point. Wifi also worked well.

“Just great!”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Definitely worth a visit when you come to Phu Quoc. We had some delicious fruit shakes, African chicken (in a hot pot) and a tuna sandwich. Everything was fresh and very tasty. Service is great, as well!

“Beautiful”
Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful food, great service... Only thing is the prices definitely do not reflect portion size, but that is due to western ownership! Must remember that you can't charge the same prices here as you would at home... Isn't that partly the point of going away ?
