LAVA, the newly opened signature seafood and grill restaurant at InterContinental® Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort, Vietnam, has been honoured at the World Luxury Restaurant Awards 2019, winning the Best Luxury Beachfront Restaurant award.
Known for serving the freshest seafood sourced from local fisherman each day, and ultra-premium cuts of Australian beef, the restaurant’s stunning exterior and interior was designed by multi-award-winning Vietnamese architect Mr. Vo Trong Nghia and is marked by authentic and intriguing uses of bamboo and fossilized coral. LAVA has won the hearts of diners with a vibrant and sophisticated atmosphere overlooking the magnificent Long Beach and the azure ocean horizon.
Oliver Horn, General Manager of InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort, said: “We are absolutely delighted that LAVA restaurant has won this highly sought after award. With exceptional design, dedicated service and exquisite cuisine, LAVA offers one of the most memorable dining experiences on Phu Quoc Island. We thank our guests for their enduring support and we remain committed to our philosophy of delivering a consistently high level of service excellence in the years to come.”
At LAVA, Chef The Anh invites diners to peruse the array of seafood on offer, and together with his culinary team and wait staff, engages with them on how they would like their meal to be prepared, using various Vietnamese cooking styles and hot lava stones. The seasonal selection of seafood also showcases the best in local produce, while upscale imported seafood including Alaska king crab, Hokkaido scallops are must-try options besides other favourites of grouper, red snapper, squid, lobster, tiger prawns, and periwinkle snails. Also featured on the menu are Australian grain fed rib-eye and wagyu steaks.
