We have been coming to The Palm Tree for three years and are just as pleased as the first time. Now on our last visit to the island we have been going there at least three times a week and will definitely be back on our next visit to Vietnam.

This is a family run restaurant (now with rooms for rent as well) with friendly service and good inexpensive food. The sea food is excellent .Do try the fish with Phu Quoc pepper sauce. It is something to come back for.

Restaurant and kitchen are very clean. The food is tasty and inexpensive. A nice alternative to the beach front restaurants. We ate twice down at the beach in two different restaurants and had stomach problems afterwards. I went to palm tree restaurant for breakfast twice and for dinner three times and liked the food and service there. Ok, the light setting is not that romantic but it is still ok and agreeable.

Fresh seafood and in particular squid on the BBQ was excellent and extremely reasonable price wise. On a couple of days we asked them to buy giant (non-farmed) prawns from the market and cook to our liking and it was superb. Basic surroundings but clean and fresh food. Wine a bit lacking (understandably) but the Vietnam red wine in an ice bucket is palatable. Staff so friendly and could not do enough for us. It is run by two sisters (one is the Chef) and a brother.

The restaurant is run by a family.
The surroundings are not much, no sea view, and the place, decor is simple.
However, the young wife speaks English (!), and the food was excellent!!!
We had crab soup, pumpkin soup, BBQ squid, BBQ fish with lemon, crab rice and they were all delicious. But what was more than delicious, and words are not enough, was steamed crab with coconut milk! A must!
The restaurant has a small variety of wines but considering where you are, it is vast.
The service was very good, quick, and they were all smiling all the time. Many tourists go there.
We will go again for sure before we leave, to try more dishes!
Furthermore it is close to Rory's bar, so you go for a drink after dinner.

This place is a small family run business just outside the fence from La Veranda, it is extremely well priced & we ate there several times. I wouldn't hesitate to recomend this restuarant
