Ben Cang Nha Trang Seafood Restaurant, 5 Nguyen Tat Thanh Street

Seafood doesn’t get much fresher than the dishes at Ben Cang; the restaurant is located 500 meters from the largest fishing port in Nha Trang, so some of the oysters, lobsters, fish, or even sea urchins you get there might well have been swimming in the ocean an hour prior to your meal.

Unlike most of the sea view restaurants in Nha Trang, Ben Cang does not look out on the open water. Instead, it is built on the bank of the Cua Be River, just next to the point where the river diverges from the sea. This fact makes for a very different sea view atmosphere than in most cases, especially since you’ll be looking at the nicest part of Nha Trang on the other side of the wide river.

Hang 66 – Seafood Restaurant in Nha Trang, 46 Cu Huan Street

Hang 66 is located just next to the point where the majestic Cai River opens out onto the ocean. It’s a prime spot to soak in the vibes of Nha Trang. Nested between two bridges, you can hear the buzz of the city, watch the fishing boats floating along the waters of the Cai, and be dazzled by the lights from the urban sprawl across the river.

The traditional food is local Nha Trang fare through and through. You’ll find Vietnamese-style sea snails and sashimi, fried rice dishes, and stir-fried vegetables. In other words, everything you need for “nhau” — a celebratory group dining event in Vietnamese culture.

Lang Chai Floating Restaurant, Tri Nguyen Island

This option will provide a very different experience than most Nha Trang restaurants — a wooden restaurant built on stilts. The restaurant is on an island in the middle of Nha Trang Bay, too, which means getting there will be just as memorable of an experience as the meal itself.

The menu items at Lang Chai lean on simple seafood recipes developed in local fishing villages of the Nha Trang area. Straightforward dishes like yellow snapper or red grouper, plain oysters, or sea snails are lightly seasoned, tossed on the grill, and brought to your table while you enjoy a peaceful meal while surrounded by the cool waters of the bay. The seafood clay pot dishes are another specialty.
