The food was amazing, we had garlic grilled fish, a seafood green papaya salad and an order of garlic spinach. However the service was pretty bad, we waited a good 20 mins after beating sat to have our order taken and then the food took another 35 mins...maybe they had an off night? Given the limited options on the island it’s worth the wait, just double up on your Saigon Special beer order while you wait!

Paid 150 for seafood rice, with the tiniest amount of seafood in it. This dish is 60-70 everywhere else on the island. Service was okay and the interior nothing special.

Will not visit again.

We went having been encouraged by the reviews.
Service was really slow. Unfortunately on the night we went there didn’t appear to be anyone who could help us determine what each dish was.
We ordered veg rice/ spicy shrimp dnd chicken in sauce. Cost about 600 vnd is not cheap ( but generally food on the island is more expensive than on the mainland we have found)
The food was nice but nothing special to shout about. As other reviews have mentioned, the dishes came out separately. All in all we did not feel it was good value for money and the slow service put us off. Shame , as it seems others have had a better experience than we did

We went here after reading about the restaurant at TripAdvisor. A lady who might be the owner or manager speaks perfect english and recomended dishes for us. We had white tuner in clay pot and scampi, both was really deliscuous.

During our week at Con Dao, we had dinner here 3 times. If you are in to seafood, you have to go here if you travel to Con Dao.

The by far best Vietnamese restaurant we found here. It is somewhat pricey, but there's always at least one friendly server who speaks decent English, they have an English menu, and food comes fast. Dishes look great, are prepared well and taste fantastic.

Definitely the place to go if you want some authentic sea food.
