I went to the place to watch the World Cup and ended up with an awesome night! The bar crew is awesome and very friendly. I’m definitely drinking a beer there next time I come to Cat Ba!

The food is awful. Really, really bad. But if you just want to drink beers, it is a great place. Don't drink the cocktails though, they are also bad.

The drinks were reasonably priced - we did also try the tomato soup which was surprisingly delicious! The girl on the bar seemed very uninterested and not attentive at all. Good place for a couple of drinks and to sit and watch the view/people watch.
