I ordered take-out a lot and just ate in my cottage. But the scene at the restaurant is great. I only did that because I was alone. You can't go wrong with the menu

Dear Charedo My apologies for not living up to the standard set by The Spice House over the years. We had a few nights this peak season when the kitchen and service were overwhelmed by the sheer volume of business. In order to accommodate everyone walking in, we went as far as setting up tables on the gardens surrounding the... More

We had a lovely evening meal on the 25th December. There were four of us and we all really enjoyed our food! The menu had a big selection and it included plenty of vegetarian options that were a little more exciting than what we had found on the island so far. We pre-booked and were able to sit outside which... More

Tasteless wine and food (mixed fish BBQ dessert and appetizers), good service, nice location. Expensive. Overall, the biggest swindle of our trip in Vietnam.
