Very tasty food and friendly staff

If you feel tired because of hiking, stop and step in there. Great Chinese food served with smile by friendly staff. Choose table on the terrace with view on rice terraces and village and enjoy. You don't need anything more.

We stopped in at Green Garden Coffee house (Lvyuan Cafe) exhausted from a hike and we were so glad we did! Danny was very attentive to my mother's gluten intolerance. For lunch we had the chicken steak & french fries. The flavour of the chicken, done in oyster sauce and ginger, was incredible. Dinner the 2nd night we had fried... More

What a gem this place is. Stumbled across it after a days walking and ended up staying the night. Great views, great food and a super friendly owner who spoke excellent English.

Really called the Green Garden Coffee House, Danny, who speaks good english, cooks up excellent food and has a great selection of beer and wine. Very friendly, but be sure to not be in a hurry as he does all the cooking.

If you're staying in the Star Wish hotel its no problem at all to find... But if you're at the 2nd viewing point... More

Just had a great coffee and Apple pie, while enjoying the beautiful view and watching the locals and tourists pass on their way up or down the village! What makes a difference are the friendly Danny and wife who enjoy a nice conversation. And the wifi really worked well :) The menu and prices look great; I'm coming back for... More

A cozy place! Duck with ginger, eggplant in pot, bamboo slices with tomatoes and a bottle of local beer: a tasty local dinner with a good price (about 120¥). We have tried two homemade liqueurs (pls, see photos): snake wine and bee wine (alcoholic like as vodka). Terrific!!! :) The owner is friendly and professional, the place is cute and... More

We tried some of the most delicious local specialties at Green Garden, and this was one of my 9 year-olds favorite restaurants on our whole trip to the Guilin area. The Bamboo Chicken is well worth the wait! And toffee apples and bananas are now one of our favorite desserts!

We ate twice at the Green Garden and thoroughly enjoyed our meals on both occasions. Bamboo rice, stir fried noodles, sizzling beef, sweet and sour chicken, toffee bananas, they were all amazing. Add in an owner/chef and his wife who were very personable and friendly (Danni, the owner, has a lovely sense of humour and loves to chat away and... More

We had dinner there and did not expect much but to our surprise it was one of the best meals we had while in China. We had Bamboo Rice , green veg and a chicken with peanuts. Followed by toffee banana .
