Do you want to enjoy authentic Spanish foods even in Vietnam? Go check out this restaurant! Itaca Resto – Lounge, a Spanish restaurant, is one of the most swanky restaurants in Phu Quoc island.

It is believed to be a true gem of cuisine because it represents the intersection of the Eastern and the Western cuisines. Itaca specialties are Catalan and Mediterranean dishes tailored to Asian tastes.

The local products together with Spanish spices have created flavors that cannot be found anywhere on the island. Its Spanish owners designed its own original architecture and decorated it elegantly and aesthetically, thereby creating an agreeable airy space that can make customers feel more at ease and pleasant. Therefore, Itaca is definitely a promising chic relaxing destination for tourists who are in search of something more than just mediocre traditional eateries. It is very close to Long Beach, just a 10-minute walk.

In Itaca – a combination of restaurant and café, when the night falls, you can enjoy cozy and romantic vibes exuding from Itaca’s interior decor with shimmering lights, which is considered an ideal place for both couples or honeymooners to have dinner and close friends to have casual gatherings.

The furniture is very modern but simple with white as the main eye-catching bright color tone representing purity and freshness. This stylish restaurant is characterized by a bar on the patio and a courtyard equipped with a number of wooden tables, seats and soft white cushions.

You can rest assured that even a randomly selected table can also help you take dozens of nice pictures. That is the reason why Itaca Resto – Lounge undoubtedly never misses its name in the top list of beautiful café restaurants in Phu Quoc islands. 

From the courtyard, you can catch a glimpse of the well-lit spacious semi-indoor dining area which is decorated tastefully with a symbol of Vietnamese traditions – lamps in the shape of conical hats. Personally speaking as a Vietnamese, even if Itaca Resto – Lounge is owned by Spanish expats and featured by tapas offerings, there are still some Vietnamese typical items making it closer and more familiar.

Specifically, Itaca has two areas: the restaurant and the lounge bar. Moreover, it also has an outdoor swimming pool that feels quite similar to a resort or a mini villa.

In regards to the menu, it offers a variety of beverages including non-alcoholic drinks, beers, wines and classic cocktails to cater for all tastes, but choices of food appear quite limited because most of the food offerings served are from Spanish cuisine. Hence, they are to the Spanish’s taste, so if you are unfamiliar with these types of food, you may find them hard to enjoy and not to your taste.

Be that as it may, don’t hesitate to have a crack at tapas because they may add some spices to your experience here. In addition, there are live DJ sets from 20:00 onwards, so if you are an energetic person, check this restaurant out. Whoever comes to Itaca Resto – Lounge all give positive feedback about its prompt services accompanied by well-training attentive waiting staff. The price here is a little bit higher than other restaurants in Phu Quoc island, but I think it is still reasonably priced and worth trying.

If you want a spacious luxurious place to have a relaxing time on your own or spend time drinking and chatting with your friends, Itaca Resto – Lounge must be a good suggestion.

The Sakura restaurant owner puts much emphasis on freshness of all offerings, so if a dish is not available at the time you come, then it means she fails to buy ingredients freshly enough. Moreover, the prices are very affordable and diverse to suit each visitor’s pocket.

According to some gourmets, European style pancakes, homemade fruit jams, tofu and vegetable curry are considered must-try dishes for first-time visitors since they are easy to eat and satisfy most people.

In Phu Quoc island, Cassia Cottage is a highly recommended resort for its elegant luxurious image. Its architecture is sophisticated and original with stylish interior decor.

One of the reasons for its popularity is that Spice House – one of the best restaurants located in this resort makes a household name for itself due to a variety of recipes which are peculiar to this eating establishment only.
