Where to dine al fresco in Nha Trang

Nha Trang is the perfect place for outdoor dining, as its warm climate is complemented by a slight breeze and the nearby beach reminds you you’re on holiday. It’s always a good idea to have a restaurant recommendation, however, and the Black White Vivid travel and food blog has put together a list of three establishments that really deliver when it comes to al fresco dining.

Sailing Club Nha Trang

Located right on the beach, Sailing Club Nha Trang could be in a better situation when it comes to views of the sea while eating. Take your pick from Vietnamese, Indian or Mediterranean dishes, but whatever you choose, the ingredients will be sourced locally and cooked to perfection.

The options range from simple and nutritious breakfasts right through to flavourful fish dishes and pasta for dinner. Once you’ve finished eating you can even strut your stuff on the dance floor, as later in the evening a DJ sets up shop to spin some records.

Louisiane Brewhouse

Not far from the sailing club you’ll find an eatery that is just as passionate about the beer it sells as the food. Louisiane Brewhouse offers tours of the brewery, as well as the chance to sample a few in the wonderful beachfront setting. When it comes to your meal, the menu includes everything from Vietnamese classics to gourmet pizzas and options with something of a Japanese twist.

As well as the beach, guests have the pool at their disposal, making it easy to camp out at Louisiane Brewhouse from dawn til dusk. It’s a good opportunity to enjoy some great beer and relax into the holiday spirit.


Named after the knobbly root that is used to flavour dishes in this part of the world, Galangal promises a lot in the taste department and luckily it delivers. It also gives visitors the chance to sit and watch life go by on a bustling street in Nha Trang. The vibe is one akin to that found in street food markets across Vietnam, but has been elevated with proper ceramic crockery.

Diners are located between two cooking stations and can therefore see everything that goes into their dishes, including the flare of the chefs. All of the food is Vietnamese and signature dishes, such as the pancakes with shrimp and the many types of pho are hard to beat anywhere in the country.
