Itaca Resto Lounge Phu Quoc attracts a steady clientele of foreign tourists thanks to its extensive range of mainly Mediterranean tapas with a smattering of pan Asian styles and alcoholic offerings. Owned (and managed) by a Spanish expat, service here is prompt and friendly, making it an ideal venue for romantic dinners and casual gatherings alike. Set within Duong Dong town, this stylish nightlife spot features a well-lit courtyard and patio-style bar with plenty of white cushioned seats and wooden tables. Overlooking the courtyard is a spacious semi-indoor dining section that’s beautifully decorated with conical hat lamps and fairy lights.
