Great restaurants in Phan Thiet and Mui Ne offer authentic regional specialities and fresh seafood from the East Sea plus cuisines from all over the world. As a prominent coastal town in Vietnam, Phan Thiet is basically a paradise for seafood lovers. After all, fishing in the South China Sea is still the main source of income for the locals.

    However, the choice of dining is by no means limited to local and seafood eateries. It extends to luxurious hotel restaurants serving Asian, French, Italian, and American dishes. Our picks of Phan Thiet and Mui Ne’s most popular dining spots not only boast a diverse food-and-beverage menu, but also excellent service, gleaming interiors, and spectacular views.
