Was everything you asked for, no fuss. Really good prices and location was good too! Would love for them to add more flavor or spices in general but otherwise it's very fresh and clean!

Areca is a family run restaurant on the way down to the beach. Lovely seating near the beach walkway and very quiet and beautifully lit. The seafood is wonderful and the prices are very reasonable compared to places around. There is also a fantastic happy hour and the Saigon red beer is very cold!

Worst food in three weeks stay in Phu Quoc. Chicken curry with awful taste on both chicken and curry sauce. I have never before been served food at a restaurant not possible to eat. Service was good though.

Areca Restobar is the place to go for dinner here on Phu Quoc. From 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm you get free mojito, beer, daiquiri etc. The BBQ seafood is amazing! The staff super friendly! You should definitely have at least one dinner if you're staying at long beach!

I want to Eat there since They had quite good scores but we were disappointed. We didn't get what we ordered but since the waitress didn't speak english so it was pointless to insist. On the other hand shrimps looked old and the food was tasteless.

It was right outside our resort so we decided to try it. The fried spring rolls were tasty and we enjoyed the local beer which is free during happy hour. I ordered the tuna with pepper sauce but it was so over cooked I couldn't finish it. My husband had a pork bowl with rice noodles which was quite salty... More
