“Delicious crab!”
Review of Mermaid Cafe

Restaurant details
Dining options: Late Night, Reservations
Description: The only sea food cafe on the beach at Cox's Bazar with music as its back drop. The cafe management is strict on serving organic food and well known for pampering the guests. The place where full moon parties are a common scenario with the roars of the sea playing as DJ. If you want to dine with a view of the beach, with the sound of the sea, so close to the beach that your toes are in the sand, there is only one place to go to in Cox's Bazar - The Mermaid Café! On the beach between Shugandha and Kolatoli Beach, opposite Uni-Resort, the Mermaid Café has great food. When you add great food to an unbelievably great location, the Mermaid Café offers a dining experience in Cox's Bazar, second to none.

“Delicious crab!”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

We went to this restaurant after having dinner at Dhaka location. The purpose was to have that delicious freshly cooked crab that we had in Dhaka.
The ambiance was excellent, background music, beach setting, candles, polite and attentive staff.
For thee sensitive to mosquito bites, they would start a special coil.
Shisha lounge is on the premises.
We went in the evening, I bet the place is a lot nicer during the day time.
Definitely recommended!

“Expensive sanctuary”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Cox's Bazar is inundated with tourists now a days, sign of a growing middle class so yay but it can get a bit much if you want some peace. Mermaid is walkable from the main hotel strip and a little oasis of calm. Decent decor, friendly service but prices on par with premium restaurants in Dhaka.

“The one located in Cox's Bazar is superb, the one in Gulshan Dhaka is horrible”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Their ambience designed in unique light and shade fashion is beautiful and dreamy; food variety very good; good mosquito control in outdoor setup; they serve fast; staff are helpful & courteous; price super super exorbitant; still for one dinner in a tourist place when you are in a holidy mood, this proved to be value for money

“BEST!”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

The good is REALLY good and the atmosphere is so cool. They have rooms you can stay in on stilts - like the photos you see of the huts over the ocean in Puket, Thailand. The restaurant itself is beachy. Best restaurant in the area.
