Glass walls open to a surrounding patio, allowing diners to be enveloped by the ocean breeze and charmed by the ever-changing seascape. The furnishings are elegant and comfortable, with natural materials like wood and neutral tones complementing the coastal theme. Soft lighting creates a warm and inviting atmosphere in the evenings.

Sea.Fire.Salt. Quy Nhon Menu & Prices

The kitchen’s theme is high-quality ingredients that are simply prepared. Given Quy Nhon’s reputation as an agricultural and fishing district, we expect the produce to be superb. (For all prices listed at Sea.Fire.Salt. add 000 and ++ for tax and service.)


A Salad of Sea Grapes (VND 320) starts the meal strong, showcasing the kitchen’s ability to manage this temperamental ingredient. Sea grapes are generally tricky to clean and lose quality fast, so to have a bunch of delicately flavoured and lightly crunchy grapes on the plate is a testament to the care that goes into their preparation. The ginger and sesame dressing is light, allowing the delicate green algae to shine.

Oysters Three Ways (VND 495) come from a local farm just down the road. They couldn’t be any fresher, collected just this morning. A trio of seasonings bring out different aspects of the oysters – fresh with shallots and vinegar, baked with spinach and cheese, and deep-fried with ponzu sauce. I forego the vinegar, wanting to taste the oysters unadulterated and appreciate their quality. They’re unoffensive as far as oysters go, mild, clean and creamy. I’m not a fan of strong, briny flavours, so these suit my palate just fine. The baked recipe is also a pleasing combo, and lastly, the deep-fried dish has its own merit, with soy, sake, and seaweed sauce slicing through the rich oil of the deep fry.

Banh Xeo Royale (VND 680) features Bai Dai lobster from a farm just down the road. The traditional Vietnamese pancakes resemble a flat-egg omelette topped with the crustacean, with rice paper rounds, mixed herbs and bean sprouts, and a dipping sauce on the side. The procedure is to lightly wet the rice paper, add some greens and the omelette, roll it up into little packages, and lastly, dip it in the sweet fish, garlic, and chilli sauce. They’re really good!

While the Sea.Fire.Salt. Quy Nhon team is proud of their steaks, we’ve had a lot of beef during our Vietnam visit so opt for the Grilled Lamb Kebab and Vegetable Skewers (VND 630) instead. It’s a fun presentation with a mini charcoal grill set up on the patio so the team can cook to our desired doneness, or we can try our hand at the grill ourselves. The tender cubes of lamb sport a light brown crust and pink middle. Tzatziki and olive oil-mashed potatoes give a Mediterranean feel to the recipe.

Himalayan Salt Bricks

The last of our mains is the highlight, Mixed Seafood (VND 650, 250 grams) cooked on a Himalayan salt brick. As the brick is hot, the mix is still cooking as it’s delivered. Choose the items that are already golden to eat first, and allow the others a little more time to cook through. There are mussels and oysters, each in herbaceous melted butter, pink prawns, scallops and calamari. All are incredibly fresh. We’re impressed. A juicy, grilled lemon and a small jug of tamarind sauce provide additional seasoning, but we’re perfectly happy with the seafood au naturel.

We choose the Coconut and Pepper Crème Brûlée (VND 320) solely based on the menu saying that it would be served in a coconut shell. It is indeed a fun presentation in the coconut with an edible bloom and sprig of green peppercorns on top. The caramelised cover is elegant, giving way to the creamy tradition. You can take on as much or as little of the local elements as you please by scraping some of the coconut flesh into your spoon and plucking a peppercorn for the scoop, too. The less adventurous might be wise to stick with the coconut, while those who want to take a walk on the spicy side could pluck with wild abandon.
