Tam Coc’s nature is truly beautiful, so this town is worth a visit when you are in Vietnam. Tam Coc itself is not very exciting, but there are plenty of restaurants so it’s allright for a few days. In the area there are a few nice things to see. The Mua Caves are cool, the boat tour is worth it and you can even drive yourself to Cuc Phuong National Park(recommended!). For the boat tour, don’t do the Tam Coc tour but another of the boat tours since you will not be harassed the entire tour by people wanting money from you.
We spend 2-3 days in Tam Coc, in my opinion that’s enough to see the best things and move on.

The last thing I want is western food while traveling in Vietnam but we did come here expecting some vietnamese fusion dishes based on some pictures we saw on here. When we arrived, we found that most of the menu was westernized so we just went along with it and got a chorizo pizza (they have a pizza oven!), tofu papaya salad, the eggrolls/springrolls (forget the exact names, forgive me), some beers and a smoothie.

It was surprisingly delicious even though western food was not what we were seeking while traveling in Vietnam. It was a good break from all the Vietnamese food we had been eating. We even returned the next day after an unpleasant boat ride nearby in Tam Coc and needed a beer. 2 times in 2 days, much like other visitors to this establishment. No regrets of eating here. Highly recommended!

Excellent pizza and great coconut coffee. Wonderful atmosphere and overall just a great restaurant if you’re needing burgers or pizza in your life.

The food was ok, nothing to shout about. You are paying slightly more here as it is western food but you can definitely get much better food for a better price elsewhere.

Very nice restaurant serving good and very big courses such as pizza and burgers.
The smoothies are very good also and it has been a pleasure to get a real espresso coffee to end our meal.
Very nice staff also.
