Beautiful classic cafe and service could be better

This is a lovely venue... right by the water, lush gardens, classic architecture, romantic settings with nice views and presentation. We came with a small tour group and, of course,this usually affects the quality of the food and the service, and, while the food was good, it was not exceptional... read more

We asked our hotel to book this restaurant as it was a special wedding anniversary for us and when we arrived we were the only people in the restaurant! It was a very pretty environment with lights in the trees and on the water front ,the staff were very attentive as you can imagine and at the end they gave... More

We went to lunch here after a boat cruise, it was recommended from friends in Australia and it surely lived up to their recommendation. The food was amazing, we sat outside on the river side and it was lovely to watch the boats go by. The gardens were beautiful and the service was fabulous

Nice service, lovely food and great if you can sit on the river bank side of the restaurant. Drinks reasonably priced for a little more up market restaurant.

We went here for lunch on the recommendation that they served delicious spring rolls. After a brief wait for a table (couple of minutes max) we were ushered through a beautiful garden to our riverside table. The view from this restaurant is absolutely stunning. The spring rolls ordered, were very tasty. I ordered the hot and sour chicken and it... More

Our experience at Brother's Cafe may be different from those who are going there to eat lunch or dinner, as our visit there was part of a group excursion. I wanted to review Brother's Cafe to comment on the service and atmosphere. From the moment our group arrived until the time we left, staff went out of its way to... More

I can only agreed with most other reviewers: great ambiance, average food on a quality/value scale. Brother's has been doing the same thing for about the last decade: lovely, outdoor atmosphere (peaceful before 7:30 pm, noisy when the courtyard fills up), buffet "street" food, some of it cooked to order. Because of the layout, the buffet line can be cramped... More

Looked a bit overpriced on the menu off the street, thought we would have a look anyway. Great service in a peacefull tranquil atmosphere, right on the river. Good was more expensive than around town but for good reason. Excellent flavors in every dish. Nice cold beer and ampul staff to cater every need, very professional and speak great english

We visited it as it was recommended by Lonely Planet. My outdated copy rated it as $, but it is no longer so now that it has a new management. Nine of us had the lunch buffet. The local students in our group enjoyed the bbq prawns, ribs, squid, oysters and snails. It was an opportunity for us visitors to... More
