We ate lunch here as a fmaily of five with two young kids. The food was decent. We tried some more traditional dishes- goat. The goat was a bit tough but, it's likely that that's the way the dish is (rather than being tough at this particular restaurant). Overall, a nice lunch.

Enjoyed dinner here on our first night in Tam Coc The food was good, service - given there was no-one else in the restaurant - was a little slow.

I had the beef curry and French fries and veg soup and a smoothie What a brilliant lunch and first time I have finished a meal in this town !! Not too expensive but as I'm 6ft6 I would love a larger table and a cushion for my butt while I ate 👍🏽

Nicely located just as you come into the city. Has a wide selection of dishes. The fried rice with beef was very good and so was Theis spring rolls and the stor fried egg plants.

My Girlfriend and I visited this restaurant as we were staying in the area. The food was really nice, we had the spring rolls, aubergine and garlic and grilled fish to share. The total bill came to around 200k dong. The service was quick and very friendly. I would highly recommend if you're in the area :)

One of the best meals in our 8 days in northern Vietnam. We were two families with eight children and everyone was happy! Try the goat.

We had a wonderful papaya salad, eggplant and chicken and with a french-speaking service, really nice. Might be one of the best restaurant in Tam Coc !
