  • 1. Bassac Restaurant

    $$$ | Coffee

    The old-world charm of the Victoria Chau Doc Hotel extends to its in-house restaurant, which serves Western and Asian cuisine in a stylish riverfront setting. Take a seat on the terrace to enjoy the sunset (and happy hour at the bar) and the attentive but discreet service. This is the priciest place in town, but the food, the staff, and the river views make it worthwhile. Reservations are recommended because sometimes the restaurant hosts bus tours.

    1 Le Loi, Chau Doc, An Giang, Vietnam
    0296-386–5010

    Known For

    • River views
    • Finest dining in town
    • Attentive service
  • 2. L'Escale

    $$$$

    The finest dining in town, on a beautiful rooftop terrace overlooking the Hau River, L'Escale serves a mix of French and Vietnamese dishes, accompanied by an extensive wine list and a jazz soundtrack, along with attentive service. The restaurant, in the Nam Bo Boutique Hotel, serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but you can also slide into a seat at the bar and enjoy a drink and the view. Time your visit around 5 pm, when the light on the river is the most magical.

    1 Ngo Quyen, Can Tho, Can Tho, Vietnam
    034-390--4735-cell phone

    Known For

    • Attentive service
    • Great sunset views
    • Vietnamese and French cuisine
  • 3. Le Longanier

    $$$$

    Reminiscent of an elegant colonial mansion, Le Longanier is a lunch-only restaurant set in tropical gardens that's part of the Victoria Hotels empire, and so is a regular stop on Victoria Cruises. Independent travelers can stop in (a reservation is required) to enjoy the set menu of Mekong Delta classics. Do take some extra time to take a refreshing drink in the downstairs salon and take a stroll through the gardens before you leave.

    Phu An Village, Cai Be, Tien Giang, Vietnam
    1800-599--955

    Known For

    • Beautiful colonial-style decor
    • Set lunch
    • Lush gardens
  • 4. Mekong Lodge Restaurant

    $$$$

    The hotel restaurant uses only local ingredients and happily accommodates vegetarians. Specialties include crispy elephant ear fish and other local seafood. The multicourse meals here are pricier than those in town but, because Mekong Lodge supports several charities, including a school and a training center for disadvantaged locals, a meal here gives back to the community.

    An Hoa, Dong Hoa Hiep, Cai Be, Tien Giang, Vietnam
    08-9663--3269-cell phone

    Known For

    • Elephant ear fish
    • Good vegetarian options
    • Supporting the disadvantaged
  • 5. On the Rocks

    $$$$

    Mango Bay Resort's in-house restaurant serves excellent Asian and Western fusion cuisine from a wooden deck (with rocks peeking through) over the water. The views of the sunset over the Gulf of Thailand are fantastic, the cocktails delicious, the staff attentive, the music mellow, and the food, including the tapas, is some of the best on the island.

  • 6. Peppertree Restaurant

    $$$$ | Long Beach

    La Veranda's in-house restaurant provides a full sensory experience, with refined Pacific Rim cuisine, stunning views over the ocean, and elegant French colonial style. One of the priciest options on Phu Quoc, it's well worth it for the service, setting, food, wine list, and sunset views. It's the perfect location for a romantic dinner.

    Tran Hung Dao, Phu Quoc, Binh Thuan, Vietnam

  • 7. Pho Xua

    $$

    This is a great find in Ca Mau, with nostalgic style (the name translates as "ancient street"), including quaint little wooden pavilions, a courtyard bonsai garden, and fish ponds. Serving Chinese-influenced dishes as well as Vietnamese cuisine, Pho Xua has a menu that contains English subtitles, although not much English is spoken by the staff. With its proximity to the ocean, it's no wonder that seafood is the house specialty, but there's also a range of chicken, beef, buffalo, and pork dishes.

    239 Phan Ngoc Hien, Ca Mau, Ca Mau, Vietnam
    0290-367–7777-cell phone

    Known For

    • Seafood
    • Wooden pavilions
    • Chinese-influenced dishes
  • 8. Rory's Beach Bar

    $$$

    Tasty bar food is available here day and night—think pizza, burgers, panini, salads, stir-fries, and pasta, served in a giant boat-shaped restaurant. Hosts Rory and Yoon preside over the café/bar, which has a genuinely welcoming atmosphere and fabulous views that stretch to Cambodia.

    Cay Sao, Phu Quoc, Kien Giang, Vietnam

    Known For

    • Good fun
    • Friendly service
    • Western-style bar food
  • 9. The Lighthouse

    $$$ | Coffee

    The newest restaurant on Can Tho's tourist strip is also the city's most stylish, with elegant and comfortable furniture and a coveted terrace with views of the river. The menu is divided between European and Asian and both sections offer plenty of variety (try the chicken braised in coconut). You can also drop by for a coffee or cake, which are baked on-site.

    120 Hai Ba Trung, Can Tho, Can Tho, Vietnam
    0292-3819--994

    Known For

    • Pretty park views
    • Eclectic menu
    • Baked goods
  • 10. The Spice House

    $$$

    Cassia Cottage Resort's in-house restaurants have romantic settings: beside a pond filled with water lilies in a manicured tropical garden or right on the beach. This restaurant, which specializes in Vietnamese and international cuisine, uses fresh local produce, prepared with care and a bit of a French flourish. This is a great option for a special evening that won't break the bank.

  • 11. Bamboo Cottages & Restaurant

    $$$

    The in-house restaurant at this friendly eco-lodge serves fresh local seafood, vegetarian dishes and lau (hotpots), which can be enjoyed with one of Phu Quoc's best views. Don't miss the house specialty, minted tempura shrimp, or book a beach barbecue for two. It's wise to book ahead before visiting, as the restaurant has only enough electricity for one refrigerator on-site, limiting the inventory of ingredients.

    Vung Bau Bay, Duong Dong, Kien Giang, Vietnam
    0297-2810–345

    Known For

    • Ocean views
    • Eco-friendliness
    • Fresh seafood
  • 12. Bay Bong

    $$ | Vietnamese

    Pull up a stool at this sidewalk restaurant and pop open a Saigon beer while you look to see what the locals are eating. Chau Doc is all about seafood, and you can't go wrong with clay pot fish—unless you don't like fish sauce, in which case go for clay pot pork, with juices that taste great over white rice. There's not a lot for vegetarians, but the plates of sautéed vegetables—morning glory, baby corn, banana flowers—flavored with coriander go well with rice, and there is a vegetable soup.

    22 Đ Thuong Dang Le, Chau Doc, An Giang, Vietnam
    076-867–271
  • 13. Bay Bong 2

    $$

    A basic Vietnamese joint, with a cafeteria-style interior and patchy English abilities, Bay Bong 2 does a range of standard but tasty Vietnamese dishes. The house specialty is com ca kho to (catfish in claypot) and sweet-and-sour soup with catfish or shrimp. The service can be hit or miss, especially if the place is busy, as it often is.

    121 Trung Nu Vuong, Chau Doc, An Giang, Vietnam
    0296-356–2747

    Known For

    • Standard Vietnamese dishes
    • Claypot dishes
  • 14. Bo De Quan

    $$

    The setting of this charming vegan restaurant, which helps support the nearby Vinh Trang pagoda, is basic but pleasant with a tangle of potted plants. Service is not the fastest, but the food is truly delicious. Don't be fooled by the English menu that lists meat dishes, this is a strictly vegan place and they are made with imitation, soy-based "meats." The house specialty is the vegan Thai-style sour-and-spicy hotpot (lau Thai Lan); the braised vegetables in claypot (rau cu kho) is also a stand-out dish.

    69A Nguyen Trung Truc St., My Tho, Tien Giang, Vietnam
    0273-397–6469

    Known For

    • Vegan food
    • Basic decor
    • Tasty hotpot
  • 15. Buddy Ice Cream and Info Café

    $$ | Coffee

    Across the road from the marina, this small, neat, and cozy café is a good place to stop for a coffee, ice cream, milk shake, or smoothie, as well as light meals such as salads, burgers, and Vietnamese dishes. It's probably the only place in town where you can get toasted Vegemite-and-cheese sandwiches, reflecting the owner's Australian roots. Famous for its "scoop" on Phu Quoc Island, Buddy is a de facto tourist information center, so stop by to pick up the latest copy of the Phu Quoc Island guide and free tourist map.

    6 Bach Dang, Duong Dong, Kien Giang, Vietnam

    Known For

    • Tourist advice
    • Western food
    • Ice cream
  • 16. Bun Nuoc Leo

    $

    This basic street food outlet serves a great version of the local specialty, bun nuoc leo, a murky pork noodle soup. Patrons can expect celebrity treatment at this place, with extra plates of spring rolls, fried prawn cakes, and banana-leaf-wrapped roast pork offered, along with wide smiles. Don't worry—if you don't eat any of the extras, you don't have to pay (but they are very good).

    48 Ly Thuong Kiet, Tra Vinh, Tra Vinh, Vietnam

    Known For

    • Authentic local recipes
    • Extra helpings
    • Its namesake bun nuoc leo
  • 17. Bun Nuoc Leo Cay Nhan

    $

    This humble street food eatery is as good a place as any to try bun nuoc leo, a Mekong Delta specialty of broth made with fermented fish, served over fresh bun noodles, with slices of fish, roast pork, shrimp, and local greens. Pair it with a glass of sugarcane juice.

    Vo Dinh Sam, Soc Trang, Soc Trang, Vietnam

    Known For

    • Bun nuoc leo
    • Sugarcane juice
    • No air-conditioning
  • 18. Café Que Toi

    $ | Coffee

    Offering very basic Vietnamese café fare, such as stir-fried noodles, pork and rice, and baguettes, this café associated with the Que Toi Hotel is a place more for satisfying hunger pangs than enjoying fine dining. Like most Vietnamese cafés, it's a place for people to meet, drink coffee, and smoke cigarettes. On the plus side, it has an English menu, which most places in town don't have.

    278 Phu Loi, Soc Trang, Soc Trang, Vietnam

    Known For

    • Basic Vietnamese café dishes
    • Vietnamese coffee
    • Smoking allowed inside
  • 19. Dinh Cau Night Market

    $$

    For fresh, cooked-before-your eyes seafood, head down to the Duong Dong Night Market. Dining at the street food stalls here, which set up around 6 pm, are a great experience, especially for group dinners. If you're not a seafood fan, never fear—a range of pork, chicken, and beef dishes is also available.

    $$$ | Long Beach

    For authentic Northern Indian cuisine, including great tandoor and naan, stop by this little restaurant, with simple style and friendly staff. Portions are generous and the masala tea is very delicious, although service can be on the slow side.

    97 Tran Hung Dao, Phu Quoc, Binh Thuan, Vietnam
    0297-399–4917

    Known For
