Check it out.
The food is absoluty well made, but the absolute highlight this evening was our waiter who ran around the restaurant with smile and entusiasm, to a degree, which i have never seen anywhere else and star number 5 was due to our waiter.

Went there following high score of the Trip Advisor. We found the place being very average restaurant. Nothing special, there are many places like that around. Service was ok, the food was ok, but we weren't served everything we ordered although all was billed )) they corrected the bill after our remark, but anyhow it was not very nice. Don't be misguided by the high ranking.

Better do a reservation, as it is crowded.

Seafood is excellent. For veggies there is a wonderful crispy lemongras chili tofu. I also recommend trying the 2nd dish under vegetables, this tastes great.

Staff was very friendly & quick.

I fail to understand how this restaurant could be rated one of the top seafood restaurants in Phu Quoc.

We went to this restaurant as a family of four. We selected it based on the favourable reviews we had read on TripAdvisor. We made a point of getting there early to avoid the supposed crowds later in the evening.

There were only about four tables taken, with four servers visible, including one who seemed to be the owner. Much of the seafood advertised on the "specials" board was not available, such as Slipper Lobsters. Service was very slow. We noticed one group of foreigners get up and leave as they seemed to wait too long to have their order taken. One service staff spent a considerable amount of time peeling all the shrimp for a local woman sitting at a nearby table, who peculiarly, brought her own fresh vegetables to be cooked a the restaurant.

Once we placed our order, we got steamed prawns instead of the grilled style we asked for. We did get our grilled squid and seafood fried rice. We've eaten extensively throughout Asia, and we found everything to be quite bland.

There was also a steady stream of street vendors hawking things to each table. Annoying and unnecessary.

Avoid.
