Gop Gio Restaurant is a local favourite on Phu Quoc Island that has gained massive popularity among travellers looking to enjoy authentic Vietnamese dishes in a casual setting. A 10-minute stroll from the Dinh Cau Rock, this fuss-free restaurant is also renowned for its fresh seafood such as eel, shrimp, and barracuda, all of which are sourced directly from local fishing boats that dock at Duong Dong Port.
Priced at VND 20,000 onwards, standout dishes here include deep-fried shrimp and squid, fish hotpot, shrimp sautéed with onion, and fried pork, all paired with a plate of steamed rice. For drinks, choose from fresh coconut water, fruit juices, local beers, or the quintessential Vietnamese coffee.
Great for a filling lunch after exploring Duong Dong’s iconic attractions, service is rather prompt despite the crowd. As Gop Gio Restaurant is mostly frequented by locals, staff aren’t fluent in English but menus in English are provided for foreign diners.
