On fridays and saturdays a reservation is recommended for this popular restaurant. The food is refined and classy. Prices around 120Y for a main course, well worth the money. The menu is a beautifull photobook, clearly showing what to expect.

Nice place to go. Ambience is good, taste of food is good and price is reasonable. The place is usually very crowded and you need to wait in line. Normal wait takes about 30 to 45 mins. Personally, I do feel that it is not worth the wait.

My wife and I were invited to Yanyu for dinner with some friends, this was our first visit but will not be our last. From the very first second this restaurant oozes class like no other I have yet visited in Xiamen. An elegant reception area at the foot of the staircase leading up to a contemporary bar area and...
