Top 10 restaurants in Can Tho, Vietnam

November 26, 2017 Giuseppe Pratt

Can Tho is the main city of the Mekong Delta, the "nine dragon river delta" where the Mekong River empties into the South China Sea. It's also the main transportation center for the region. The extensive canals make for a pleasant boat ride, and the nearby floating markets offer authentic goods and exotic local fruit. *Fly into Ho Chi Minh City International Airport where you can take a car or van (approximately 4 hours) to Can Tho.

Mekong 1965

Reviewed By hereandthere - Calgary, Canada

Unbelievable but we prefer vegetarian food when travelling. This restaurant was almost full when we checked the menu - a good sign. Host found us a table and we ordered a Vegetarian pizza with homemade crust and seasoned sauce. Outstanding! Vegetarian curry with rice - also outstanding! The best food we have eaten in Vietnam so far.

The house was built between 1913 and 1915, Built with the French, In the past year, the house was restored to its original shape, the tiles of its secondary roofs green again, then it just needed to be repainted, as the strong arch is actually as new today as it ever was. The Ninh Kieu park was also overhauled last year, and its beautiful garden now spans down to the market hall itself, providing a great, green Promenade to idlers at night, leading them to Phuong Nam Lunch and dinner We serve Vietnamese cuisine as well as Western cuisine, and can accommodate groups of over 100 people, whom we can treat to the best of what the Mekong delta can give.

The restaurant is at the end of the plaza across from the statute. The dumplings were crispy not fried and the crevettes (shrimps) were fantastic. We ordered the bottle of Chilean wine and it was the best wine we had in Vietnam. Chicken fried rice was also a good choice.

Mekong delta and Vietnamese cuisine, but also western dishes to accommodate travelers with kids; overlooking the river in a unique setting.

We had a few minutes between tours and just ducked in. Glad we did.
We had a pizza which was very good (although the service was a bit slow) And a coffee that would have made an Italian barista proud. The Vietnamese family at the next table seemed to really enjoy what looked like a traditional Vietnamese lunch so this cafe is probably good for all tastes

Hop Pho

Reviewed By Amanda J - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The best part about this place was the air conditioning. I know Can Tho must have decent restaurants, but everything on the river is touristy and subpar, Hop Pho included. The pho soup was not very flavorful and service was not great. They also wouldn't accept credit card.

Ngoi Do

Reviewed By Mar I

We found this restaurant on TA and went there for dinner. Don't be disappointed when you are on the correct road and you didn't find it before house number 270 and 272, keep walking, it's the next restaurant. The food was tasty and the beer was really good. Another plus is the English description in the menu, so you know what you order. ;-)
We will go there again!

L'Escale

L'Escale offers a selection of French and Vietnamese cuisine with a view of the river from the top-floor Terrace of Nam Bo Boutique Hotel. Our bread is home-baked and you may choose you wine in the cellar: why not complete your meal with a plate of cheese with a glass of wine, or with a dessert and an espresso. Do not hesitate to come up for the breakfast of L'Escale.

Reviewed By Kate C - Newcastle, Australia

We dined at L'Escale last night and found it to be a wonderful experience. This rooftop restaurant offers the most beautiful view of the river. We booked a table on the balcony & enjoyed watching the passing parade on the street below as we each enjoyed very good French fare. The service is excellent. There's a feel of 'the fine dining experience' in the staffs presentation of themselves, of food & wine. They didn't miss a beat. I chose Lapin Rolls...beautifully presented & flavoursome. There's French & local fare offered. We all chose from the French menu as French cuisine is the speciality @L'Escale. The winelist represented wines from Italy, South Africa, Australia and Sth America.. we enjoyed a lovely French. Whilst we were finishing our meal, the heavens opened it poured down with rain. The staff arrived asap and escorted us to an inside table...a seemless transfer. Our dining experience at L'Escale was a lovely one which I highly recommend.

Good food for very good price. Many vegetarian dishes! The only deception would be that my dish didn't look like what I'd order at all. See pictures below

Had dinner here with my wife and parents. They do Vietnamese pancake, fried spring rolls and fresh spring rolls. Food is great, portions very large and it's clean. Also ideal for people watching.
