The principle of the market is that all seafood is laid out, you can touch it, smell it, take a picture with them and give it to the cook – let it cook. Himself at this time to take drinks and sit down at a table. As soon as the dishes are prepared, they are brought.

The place is absolutely not focused on Europeans, it is very difficult to explain with the waiters and chefs, but if it works out, they will prepare exactly what you want.

The prices are high, especially for alcohol, but it is worth visiting the establishment at least because of the atmosphere, freshly prepared drinks and very good service.

In the city of Vung Tau there are still many good places, we talked about the ten most deserving attention. Some stand out for their local unique flavor and low prices, like Seafood Restaurant, others understand English well and have a European menu (Van Chai Seafood Restaurant), while others indulge in Indian or Mexican cuisine (Taj Grill Indian Restaurant and Salsa Mexicana Restaurant).
