The incredible selection of restaurants is mostly geared to the cosmopolitan tastes of its visitors, with Russian, Italian, Thai and Indian cuisine. Sometimes it's trickier to find good authentic local food, though seafood is always fresh and flavoursome.
Wherever you dine, expect to pay more than you'd expect elsewhere in Southern Vietnam – Mui Ne is an expensive place to eat out.
Periodically, the famous but illegally built seafront shacks (located around Km 15 on the strip), collectively known as the Bo Ke restaurants, are closed down by police. They always seem to reemerge in time for high season.
The goat restaurants in Ham Tien, around Km 18, are another local experience, featuring barbecued goat or goat hotpot, herbs and all.
The nearby town of Phan Thiet also has lots of great seafood places.
