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.

“Wonderful ambiance, a bit expensive.. but a worthy place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

One of the best dining place in Cox’s Bazaar (the one close to seagull hotel). It has wonderful beach style outdoor setting, great music selection and unique decoration overall. It looks beautiful at night, perfect place to sit for a long time and spend your evening.

Food is a bit expensive and comes in small portion but its great overall.. special mention on their sea food and fresh juices.. try their fried calamari and lobster.. They have dedicated staffs for you but service is usually late. You might need to wait for an hour for your main dish to be ready.

Being overly sensitive and allergic to mosquitoes, I think they should put more effort on their insect control.. specially for the one in Himchori.

I’ve been to the Mermaid Cafes from Dhaka as well.. its kind of ‘okay-ish’.. not bad but not close to the one from Cox’s Bazaar either.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Their whole decoration idea is splendid. The used wooden items for almost everything which is totally fantastic. Moreover, the lighting with different colors and the candles during the meal is great.
Their food quality and taste is totally outstanding. No one can compare the taste and quality with others.
Their services are above all. Really enjoyed the whole time at their places.
