The Best Restaurants in Halong Bay [2021]

1. Papa’s BBQ

Papa’s BBQ offers an extensive international menu that has something for everyone. All food is freshly prepared and handmade by Chef Van, and is certifiably delicious. The prices are reasonable and the portions are large and satisfying! As an added bonus the restaurant is close to the beach. We recommend trying either steak and chips, or schnitzel with an imported German beer.
