Comparing to a few local restaurants in this small town, Thu Ba is a little better. More table, good English communication. Cost is high with not special menu. Anyway, service is ok, cook is ok. You should know that Con Son People they re all nice and friendly and their cuisine is fine. :) Specialities in Condao is not rich,... More

We came here desperately after being turned away from other restaurants because we wanted to eat vegetarian food. There is a woman who speaks perfect English there and immediately helped us pick our meals. The garlic sauteed spinach is heavenly. We also tried their mushroom dish and lemongrass tofu. Kept going back every day on our 6-day trip on Con... More

Sadly there are very few good restaurants in Con Dao. This restaurant is one of a few with acceptable quality but if you expect really nice Vietnamese food, like in HCMC, you will be disappointed.  The food is overpriced and I guess the lack of competition is one reason. The service can sometimes be poor but one good thing is... More

Enjoyed dining there! Ask the hostess for recommendations on the menu! You can bring seafood (fresh fish) and have it prepared by the restaurant (there is a charge, of course).

The food is mostly good and better than in other Con Dao restaurants. We had a really nice papaya salad and fish with ginger, among other dishes. Their grilled lobster was, however, dry. The owner is friendly and speaks very good English. Prices on Con Dao are generally higher than on the mainland, but this restaurant is a bit overpriced.

In July of 2014 (disregard other date given as I've been meaning to post this review for a long time and finally got around to it) my wife and I travelled through Vietnam for 2 weeks and for the last week of our travels we stayed at the Six Senses Resort on the island of Con Dao. However after checking... More

On our second of our Con Dao island adventure my girlfriend and I found tha mt it was time for some seafood and boy o boy! When entering the restaurant your eye immediately falls on the big tanks with fresh lobsters and crabs. The menu is not too complicated and whether you feel like eating rice with shrimps or squid,...

We ate in this place twice during our stay in Con Dao. The food is fresh and tasty. However, the second time we were led by the recommendations of the waitress for a "excellent fish" hot pot and ended up being charged for it 950000! One soup 40 euros, maybe on top of Eiffel Tower?!

Great atmosphere. Delicious food. Lovely honest staff, especially the one who chased us after we left to reunite me with my phone, which I didn't realise I had left. Many thanks.

We only had a couple of nights in Con Son but ended up going here twice as the food is excellent. Highly recommend their Pepper Pig and steamed ginger fish.
