Barbara's Kiwi Cafe is one choice for the people who wants to know Quy Nhon area especially you are alone. the staff (probably the owner) speak English and Friendly. For my self This Cafe just okay, at least you have western foods to select there. the cafe should be more tidy and clean, so that can give a better feeling... More

Sorry to say, but staff was very helpful. Can't speak English, count answer any questions. Food was overpriced. And small portions. Too bad.

Well what a disappointment, we read about this place in the lonely planet. But Barbara has moved on it seems and now the place has gone down. The food was boring, toiletroom not clean and nothing there to wash your hands afterwards. What happened to Barbara s place? Not worth going there.

We only ate here, didn't stay in the hostel. Title pretty much says it all. The food was good quality and tasted great, but both of us were still hungry afterwards. For the price we paid I would certainly expect more than 1 piece of bacon and 1 slice French toast. We also tried to rent scooters here, but the... More

Had lunch here, had the pasta pesto with chicken and got a big amount of tasty food for a fair price. The owner helped me get a motorbike back to my hostel also.

This place written up at length in lonely planet has definitely seen better days, they are basically trading on the fact they have an overpriced english menu. The woman who served us looked like she hadn't had a pleasant day in years consequently the place was almost always empty. (we were in a hotel next door) as a kiwi i... More

Called in for several times for a beer, hired cycles and ate a couple of times too. Very friendly people and the food we had was very good. Suited us when we just wanted something easy.............Worth trying we think!

I ended up staying at this joint for 3 nights. Would definitely recommend for budget travelling, 5 dollars for air con dorm, as it seems to be the only budget option in town where you'll get a bit of travel advice etc in English . Be warned tho, I'm 187cm and bed slightly short. As others have said it's the... More

This is a terrific find. Been in Vietnam 2 1/2 months and am so relieved to find such friendly, helpful and kind people in Phuoc and Loan as hosts. Great dinner - western menu as an alternative to the otherwise enjoyable Vietnamese fare available everywhere. Very cold beer!!!!! (Sadly lacking elsewhere in VN. Sadly didn't meet Barbara who is now... More
