Why you should go...

If you are Chinese and reading this and are indifferent or skeptical to Western food than this place is the place for you. If you are dating a beautiful Western woman or a Chinese woman who has never been beyond PIZZA HUT than this is the place for you. WHY? Simple... The menu is small enough... read more

The House has been a staple of good eating in Xiamen for the last ten years, and I have been there ever since the opening. The food is great and the atmosphere sitting outside especially is amazing. The chicken over mash potatoes is my favorite.

Summer night, great company, what else? Well going to The House No.1 sounds like an awesome choice. Placed at the end of a quiet street, surrounded by trees on a typical local neighborhood, this restored old house has this great feeling of the perfect dinner with friends or simply with someone special. Carefully selected menu, nice and fresh ingredients, premium... More

I hadn't been to The House 1 in years and was a little hesitant to come after a "not too good" meal at House 2. Well I'm certainly glad we came back. Excellent meal. I had the Sea Bass on mushroom stuffed ravioli and my friend had the duck breast, we both loved our meals. The setting is like an... More

The restaurant looks great! It's an old colonial villa in a quiet street. As we had no reservation we had to eat inside which was also ok! You will find western food here with a good quality, the only thing is we had to wait a little bit too long. The reason why I don't give 4 stars the this... More

The restaurant is located in a Western style house that is nearly 100 years old so it has a lot of charm. The food was GREAT! Some of the best I've tasted. I had the ribeye and my husband had their seafood risotto. He said it was really good too. The staff was really nice and helpful. Had I known... More

Perfect Atmosphere, perfect food, excellent menu, friendly service, outdoor seating, located in the hart of Xiamen in an old European style villa, no other western restaurant within 500 Km can beat the House 1

The House is absolutely my favorite restaurant in Xiamen. I have eaten here around fifty times. The menu lists the food as "California Cuisine". There are many excellent choices. The beef is outstanding including the filet mignon and the rib eye. My favorite entrée is the chicken breast served over mashed potatoes and grilled seasonal vegetables. I typically order a... More

The House served up one of the best Pasta's I've had at a restaurant hands down! The Caesar salad was also superb and my table of friends also all had slam dunks..

Dined here last night with a couple of mates, nice relaxed atmosphere, staff were attentive while not being intrusive. Food standard was top drawer, I can highly reccomend the salmon and broccoli pasta, literally the best pasta I have ever tasted. Would definitely return to this restarurant next time I'm in Xaimen!!
