“Value for money is good”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

We tried this restaurant, which was very busy and made a good effort to fit everyone in. Drinks came quickly but it was 60 minutes before any meals came, and several came another 30 minutes after that. Some drinks and courses never arrived, but they cheerfully removed them for the bill. Strangely, people arrived after us and seemed to have no problems getting their orders, even though we only ordered dishes like noodles and vegetables, which are not complicated.
May suffers somewhat from a disorganised system but still provided generous, relatively cheap meals and drinks so gets a four star rating, despite our three star experience.

“Very busy, but good food”
Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

The night we dined here it was especially busy, & the staff were run off their feet. This would explain why we were forgotten for one of our courses but being so busy we did understand. The food was good the portions were large& had we had more time would have returned

“Best food on the beach”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

The restaurants along the beach beginning with May Restaurant are really good. First, you can sit at a table right on the beach with your toes in the sand if you want. Second, the ambiance is perfect; gentle breeze and waves, colorful lights hanging in the trees, people enjoying each other, friendly wait staff, and great food. We are at two of the restaurants along the beach and both were very good. The May is the last you come to if walking south. There are others further down the beach, but May is the last one in the general group. My wife got a seafood soup that was loaded with fish, squid, and shrimp. I got a fish cooked with chili salt. Both were really good. The beer is always cold too. For two meals and a couple of beers each, the cost was around 170,000 VDN (about 8 USD). The beach is especially nice along here too.

“May restaurant at the beach”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

Notice that there are 2 May Restaurants on Phu Quoc, I write about the one ca. 3 km south of the night market in Duong Dong, right on the beach. Owned by a German and a Vietnamse they serve good food in a warm and cosy atmosphere with attentive staff, the chief waiter is a girl, who speaks a pretty good English and they all try harder. Reasonable prices, also for the fresh grilled fish, I had one called Bird fish, very tasty.

“Very good food!”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

Very good food (had rice with seafood and my husband beef Luc lac) at May restaurant & bar - a simple beach place along Long Beach at Phu Quoc (not to confuse with Mai).
