Very 'local' type of restaurant with local prices. We had a whole big fish each for about £3. Amazing. We ate here on a second occasion and I had fried rice which was delicious. Portions are generous.

It's a corrugated iron shed. It wouldn't look appealing anywhere else but it works here and if it puts you off, absolutely don't let it. We paid 195,000 VND for two beers, filled squid, squid with lemongrass and chilli, prawn pho and prawn fried rice....More

Okay, so you are basically eating in a metal shack with zero ambiance, but the food is fantastic! My husband and I went here for both dinner and breakfast and we had a great experience both times. For dinner, we had the fish curry and...More

A wee hidden treasure of phu quoc. The food is extremely well prepared, completely delicious and excellently priced. The seafood is by far the best we have eaten in vietnam. I would go back to phu quoc for this restaurant alone!

The location is about 200 meters up the small alleyway right next to the Canary Hostel at 103 Tran Hung Dao St. The map marker can be set at 103 Tran Hung Dao St., since the alleyway doesn't even show on the map.

Hieu's Family Restaurant has been in operation for 24 years. It began when the family provided food on the beach for the few early tourists to Phu Quoc. There was not even a building at the beginning, just chairs on the beach. In time the family rented space to serve tourists, but each time in each location, the rent was increased, so the family had to move. Still the regulars managed to find it each time they returned. "The food is so good and so inexpensive, why eat anywhere else?" This is a common comment about Hieu's. Finally the restaurant has found a permanent home in a lovely garden attached to the family house. Though more off the beaten path, the regulars are still finding it and telling others. The restaurant is now located off Tran Hung Dao St., about 200 meters up the small alley next to Canary Hostel. Look for the big green sign that says Canary, and head up the hill.
