Don't want to sound too OTT but it is the best food we had during the 3 week tour of Vietnam, the staff are friendly and aim to please. Book ahead of time. The week that we went it was very busy.

We did not stay at the cottages so I cannot comment about the accommodation. All I will say is their setting looked very nice as was our table when we finally sat down at the restaurant. We booked the day before for our last night and asked specifically for a beach view table. A confirmation email was received confirming my... More

Darling: if ' Arrogant" means we object to guests who use loud vulgarities to staff, and louder sounds of passing gas at the table, then we take it as a compliment. You arrived an hour early for your booked table. When we told you it wasn't ready, you swore at the manager and demanded free drinks!. We sent you to... More

My wife and I booked here for a new years day meal at 8pm, I accept that the restaurant was busy but we were left thoroughly disappointed by the experience. Firstly, after being shown to our table we were presented with menus, after 10 minutes or so nobody had been to take our order. During the wait, a table of... More

Dear ashdec I can only apologise for the delays you experienced at dinner a couple of evenings ago. The garlic bread was indeed delivered to the wrong table unnoticed, which means your mains were never given the 'fired up' signal for the Chef to prepare hence the delay. If you are still in Phu Quoc drop me a line please,... More

This is the nicest looking restaurant we saw in town, upscale and modern, with a lovely poolside location. The food we ordered was fine, though the service was off the night we were there.

Dear BlueMarbleRox Your review is appreciated by the team here at The Spice House - Cassia Cottage. I apologise if the service was off that evening, we have experienced unprecedented business levels this season and as there are not many suitable dinning alternatives nearby it is difficult for us to turn away dinners at the door.

Came here on 25th Dec hoping for a slap up meal...we waited forever for our food, most of which was catering to western tastes so not authentic Vietnamese, and although the service was friendly it was pretty inept. It's a swanky place but they should up their game to match their prices!

Dear AbiFC1983 Thank you for the review, and my apologies if the service was slow on Christmas Day. The Spice House was full from lunchtime to around 11pm on that day and we tried to accommodate many walking in without a reservation, which did stress the service. We do not promote ourselves as offering authentic Vietnamese food, we offer a... More

We managed to get a table on the last night of our stay on the island but the meal was really disappointing. The rice paper rolls were uninspiring as was the prawn cocktail and the seafood basket. The chicken curry (old Indian recipe) was the worst I have ever tasted. The staff were really friendly but unorganised. The only upside... More

Highly recommend. Nice fusion touches on Vietnamese dishes plus some western alternatives too. Great wine selection and excellent service. Not cheap but worth spending a little extra in comparison with its neighbours

The restaurant is close to the beach, staff is good level but the service was extremely long. But the food was great and prices reasonable. We ate there 2 times, Booking is necessary during peak season. I would recommend the place without hesitation.

This is the best restaurant in Duong Dong. They have a great feel for different flavor combinations. The staff are very service minded and cares for you. And the view are fantasic, overlooking the sea and sunsets.

My partner and I just ate dinner in The Spice House. The service was good on the whole and the guy accommodated us without a reservation, which was nice.
