The food was delicious! I ordered the Ban Xio (I think that's how it was spelt) and it was incredible. My husband ordered a soup which was also good. Can't beat the low price on food that good! Going back tonight for dinner and their great happy hour special.

We were overcharged on the bill. Prices in the bill were 50% more expensive than in menu for some items. When queried, it was dismissed as a mistake and quickly fixed. Food was good, but be aware.

We ate here in October 2016. We ordered the grilled beef with pepper and the salt and pepper squid, plus a starter of 'shellfish' (still not entirely sure what they were, but they were very tasty in any event). Took advantage of a great happy hour deal with all-you-can-drink cocktails between 7 and 8 included with our meals. We have... More

The place is clean and the staff is nice. We had a dinner and a breakfast there. The food is good, but nothing exceptional. I found the dinner price a little bit excessive compared to other restaurants in the same street.

We stayed at Phu Quoc for six days, found that restaurant on our first day and decided to have breakfast there every morning. Staff was very, very friendly, good food and affordable prices :) Would recommend it to everyone!! Thanks, Areca-Staff! :):)
