    May Restaurant: Great Food...Terrific Service..

    by Greggor58 Updated Mar 17, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was to become our favorite place to eat…and we made the trek down the beach, eventually cutting through one of the hotels again and connecting with the main street that runs North into Duong Dong where the May Restaurant is found.

    It’s a more enjoyable walk down the beach than walking along the side of the street.

    We received great personalized service from the owner, Hai , pronounced just like “Hi” and the main server here, Mi…pronounced like “ Me”. The restaurant is clean and nicely decorated and the food was GREAT and not expensive at all.

    We enjoyed eating here so much that we took business cards and left them around the hotel that we were staying at hoping that it would bring Hai some extra business.

    I think we likely had at least four meals here in five days…a lunch the first day that we discovered it, and then dinners.

    A combination of reasons made it appealing…the service was terrific, we had loads of laughs with the staff, and the food was really quite good and inexpensive.

    If you’re looking for a reliable and good restaurant to eat in while you’re staying near or in Duong Dong then you need to visit Hai and Mi…and say hello to them both for me when you’re there.

    Favorite Dish: We eat Spring Rolls, soups, chicken and beef prepared different ways. The menu has photos that show what the presentation is actually like.

    Everything that we eat here was quite tasty...served hot and seasoned just right weather you enjoy it SPICEY with lots of peppers or not...:o[

    This has to be one of the best restaurants we ate at on the island. Set in a lovely garden type setting underneath a giant thatched roof. Softly lit and an excellent menu. Staff were efficient and attentive. Food is absolutley to die for.

    Favorite Dish: You must try the tamarind prawns - out of this world!! Also, you must try the BBQ Squid and Fried Crab Claws!!

    Tam Restaurant Phu Qouc: Good Seafood

    by shavy Updated Jul 15, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At our first day in the island we stroll to the center in the afternoon just after we arrived. And we saw this restaurant on the way, we went inside and have our late lunch here. It is a family restaurant I remember it was a little girl who is serving us, oh boy, she's fluent with her English and a pretty good entertainer. At first I asked her how old she is, she said 15 years old but I don't believe her she looks younger than 15. Well, we have a good lunch it was very tasty and very affordable

    The next day we went back to town in the evening as we are planning to eat at the night market where offers a great array of seafood and we saw the restaurant having sea foods displayed outside fresh fish, prawn, crabs and many more

    So, we decided to have dinner here. Again, it was the little girl who served us, but she did not recognized us until we said to her: we have been here yesterday and then she said: oh yes now I remembered you have given a tips, she was kind of embarrassed

    So, we made our ordered, and the one who brought our order is her father the chief cook very friendly man. After our dinner he stay and talk to us about the restaurants that is from a generation and he also tell about his little girl who likes to serve customers and I ask him how old is she, well, the truth that the little waitress is only 12 years old

    Favorite Dish: My buddy order grilled squid while I have the grilled prawn, it was very delicious

    The Beach Club

    by jolou Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are staying at the Thousand Stars end of long beach, pay a visit to the beach Club right at the end. very quiet surroundings, friendly staff, some comfy looking hammocks and they do a great fish and chips. The music is good which is unusual on the island and they also have some nice looking bungalows.

    Mai Phuong: Mai Phuong, Don't eat here!!!

    by N.S. Written Aug 19, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you happen too see this place - run as fast and far away as you can! The food was absolutely worst I have ever eat in my life!

    We orded chicken(mistake). After that, crowing least food was fresh;(
    After 10 minutes, we got raw chicken pieces and some kind of home made grill.
    There was completely nothing to eat in that little bird, than skin and bones.
    Aften next 10 minutes, we got "salad" made from... something... with some kind of decoration.
    Waiter, for whom I can complain - in our salads is chicken legs.

    Good bye, appetite!

    It's very unlikely, that you get lost in there... but everything is possible.

    Favorite Dish: Maybe something else is even eatable... but if I sometimes get lost in there again, I rather eat worms than chicken!

    And what worst, the food was't even cheap.

    Tropicana Resort: Dine on the terrace and watch the sunset!

    by worldkiwi Written May 5, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tropicana Resort is right on Long Beach, on the western side of Phu Quoc. I walked down the beach to try their restaurant from the hotel I was staying at. You can get a motorbike to drive you there.
    The restaurant has a great terrace which looks over the beach and out to sea. Sit and watch the fishing boats heading out and the sun setting. The menu features a range of Vietnamese food and the usual line up of western dishes.
    My meal was delicious, the service friendly and interested, and the view fantastic.

    Favorite Dish: I had Lemongrass Fish. Yum!

    Apart from a seafood barbecue buffet one evening at the resort (whole fish, crabs, lobster, shellfish, squid, and scallops just thrown on the barbecue with scales, guts, and all – tasted great) we ate at local cafes where the food was fresh (cooked at your table from live in one case), cheap, and delicious.

    Just wander down the beach away from Duong Dong town and you will come to the Tropicana Resort. Here there is a lovely outdoor area where they serve great food. The place was packed the night we ate there. Had the most delicious Crab Fried Rice.

    Favorite Dish: Try the Fried Rice with Crab meat - delicious!!

    Long beach options

    by jolou Written Apr 24, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There's a lot of different restaurants and resorts serving food along the mile stretch of Long Beach. We didn't have a bad meal in any of them so it's hard to be too specific. Dont' stick to always eating in the place where you are staying, take your torch and explore the options.

  • Le far breton: French creperie

    by teeterouge Written Oct 9, 2011

    Nice place for a change from sea-food and all vietnamese food.
    Altough situated on the road behind the resorts the setting is nice on a large terrasse.
    The menu is quite large and we got real "galette" bretonne, for a price quite modest.
    Good selection of coktails as well.
    Friendly owners.

    Favorite Dish: Crepes aux pommes brulees avec du chocolat fondu
    Caramelized apple crepe with chocolate

  • Chez Carole: Thin bread baked in oven = not pizza!

    by pkml Written Mar 20, 2010

    What makes it so special/not so special?

    Hmm..I think the pizzas are very special. I would however not call them pizzas, yes they are thin ( as others have written ) and round, but that's were the simularitites stop.

    I've had a lot of pizzas in many countries in europe & asia, some good some bad, but these taste absolutely nothing!

    There's no seasoning/herbs/salt or anything that gives the "pizza" any taste, except for the burned flavour that comes from bottom which is more black than brown or whatever the normal pizzabottom color is :).

    It also took more than 30 minutes to get one of the 2 pizzas we ordered, the other one arrived 15 minutes later. Which is strange, if you order two pizzas and you have a big oven with room for more than two pizzas, why don't you put them in at the same time so they are ready at the same time and the people waiting for them can get them AT THE SAME TIME!

    And they were the size of pancakes.....

    Can't believe the people saying the pizzas "are great" and "the best they've have had", you must have been either drunk or more likely confused Carole with another place (or both).

    I´m 99% sure you will like the pizzas better on any of the other restaurants on phu quoc!

    Favorite Dish: The Coke light was nice and cool.

    Bland food and poor service. Waited over an hour for our meal and then the main meal was bought in before the starter! Also surrounded by two or three dogs who seemed to be resident here. Watched as a few guests got up and left because they were tired of waiting. Maybe it was a bad night, but I would not go there to eat again.

    ITACA Resto – Lounge: European influenced Vietnamese

    by annase Written Mar 16, 2013

    There is a new restaurant on Phu Quoc which was really nice called Itaca. It is clearly much more expensive than most other restaurants around since it is so cheap in Vietnam. The bill for 4 people was about 2 million dong which is about 100 USD. We had 4 starters, 4 main courses, 4 drinks, a fruit juice and about 3-6 beers. The size of the dishes were actually pretty large. I was stuffed after having eaten my starter (fried squid). Maybe consider sharing a starter.

    We sat in the garden, it was a lovely, calm looking and trendy environment for a relaxed meal. I thought the deco was pretty awesome and the food was really nice.
