Visited here by boat during trip to Vietnam and Cambodia in 2013. Unexpected location and sensations of being transported back in time to French colonial opulence, matched by a modern Vietnamese immaculate greeting, service, food, and farewell. Nothing was too much trouble. Genuine surprise and delight

First of all, the restaurant is not situated in Phu Quoc but in Cai Be, an popular stop-over for boat tours and that is how we got here. The building is stunning, set in a beautiful garden with lots of birds (a rarity in Vietnam), making it a good break from the chaos of the rest of Vietnam. We had... More

As with most of the reviews this visit was part of our tour around the Mekong and it was a lovely surprise. The house is very attractive. Service was good and we enjoyed the food and presentation. It was very quiet and peaceful.

This lunch was included in our tour and after cruising along the Mekong river on a Victoria Cruise, it was nice to be able to walk to such a beautifully presented restaurant. The hostesses were beautifully presented as was the food - soup, spring rolls, elephant ear fish which was then wrapped in rice paper, though it was much nicer... More

It's a lovely French colonial building in Cai Be, a short walk from the river. They serve a set menu for those on a Victoria day cruise: fish, soup, nem (fried spring rolls), veggies, dessert... more food than one can eat. If you're a single traveler on a day cruise, you're paying double so I supposed you could ask for... More

Dear LA4man, We are very sorry to learn about your case. This is really an accident for us as people in the South, especially in the South West of Vietnam are famous for sweet taste - using more sugar than other regions in the whole country. We highly appreciate your review which helps us to improve quality of food and... More

As we walked along we wondered where our guide was taking us. In the middle of the country out came a beautiful french colonial style restaurant. Open air with beautiful scenery surronding the building. Staff were friendly. Food was excellent. Perfect end to our day cruise.

What a unique place, we were taken on a tour around the Mekong by Indochina Odyssey Tours, and ended having lunch at this marvelous place. The arquitecture, the ambiance, the decoration, transports one in time to the early 19th century. The food was immaculately presented and fantastic flavors, initiating with the local fish, which was delicious. Lunch was served by... More

This beautiful restaurant is located in the heart of one village on the Mekon river. After a boat ride of 1.5 hours this was our best moment. The house is absolutely beautiful with some French touches but keeping the Vietnamese style. The staff is very well dressed and extremely polite. We had a set menu of 5 dishes, I can't... More

Stopped here for lunch after a morning boat trip on the river. Beautiful tranquil location. Lovely old Colonial style villa set in grounds. Walked through the downstairs bar / lobby area upstairs to the dining room. Waitresses were wearing white traditional Ao Dai and looked super cool. It seems as though this restaurant purely caters for the visiting boat trips,... More
