This quite large restaurant is on the seashore although you may dine inside if you wish. The ambience is very pleasant; the menu is extensive; and the local food is good. We had a nice lunch on the verandah looking out at the sea. Seafood is the selection of choice, for obvious reasons. The prices are reasonable; and service was... More

Forget the Vietnam War. Danang is now the upcoming South Beach of the country. It is a pretty seaside beach community and the great hotel chains of the world--Four Seasons, Hyatt Regency are building large resorts here. When visiting, stop in at The Blue Whale and enjoy great seafood sitting at a table overlooking the ocean. The price is right... More

Location is great as it is next to the beach. However, you can definitely get better food with the same price elsewhere in Da Nang. It is definitely a place for foreign visitors though.

This restaurant is just next to the famous China Beach, We sat outside Al Fresco, and enjoyed the sea breeze and the vast view. The food is tastefully done up: look good, taste good.

Description
A fine dinning beachfront restaurant with great seaview, especially from the terrace, and elegant decor. Guests can step down to the sandy beach from the terrace. We mainly serve live & freshest seafood, and a short Western Menu. Many consider us the "best in town." We are conveniently located on the seaside street stretching from Danang to Hoi An. Our past guests have said of our restaurant, "Fabulous place, definitely a "must see & visit", delicious cuisine, smart staff."
