Delicious!

This was close to our hotel and after a day of sightseeing, trips to the tailors and a fishing tour, we fell onto their terrace overlooking the river and enjoyed every minute. Service attentive, food delicious and great atmosphere. Expensive but you get what you pay for!

This is rather out of the main town and not easy to find. It has a lovely garden and we had a nice table overlooking the river. The food and service was good but as soon as a group had come and gone in double quick time the waitresses changed out of their fancy outfits and clearly wanted to close... More

The cafe is located in a beautiful ancient villa with nice garden and river view. However, food & drink quality doesn't deserve the price. Their staff is also very unfriendly.

Was excited when we arrived with a group at this restaurant as it was a beautiful setting but the food was disappointingly bland and boring. Really disappointed.

As you walk past on the street side you get the feeling that is is an ordinary restaurant, don't be fooled, walk through to the river side and it is such a lovely place to eat. The staff and fabulous as is the food, we visited twice during our 4 night stay as we enjoyed it so much. Give it... More

In two visits to Hoi An in the past 18 months, we have enjoyed an excellent lunch and dinner at this smart riverside restaurant, so I am a bit bemused about why it hasn't featured higher in the rankings on TripAdvisor. Brother serves fresh, quality food and has an excellent wine list, although like everywhere else, you'll need a drink... More

there are loads of places advertising cooking classes in Hoi An but this one must be close to the best. Chef and manager Uyen took us first to the market to give us the inside track on all the produce there. While we had a set menu for the class, my husband loves squid, so Uyen bought some and added...

Good food though small portion size compare to other restaurants we've been to. Good but very impersonal services. Overall good but in a town with so many restaurant choices we can get the same experience paying much less, or expect something outstanding for the price we paid.

We decided to go to the Brother's Cafe after having seen it from the boat on the Perfume River. It has a really nice and romantic garden full of white lanterns. Great atmosphere. It is a little walk out of town so it was a bit quiet although later at night more guests arrived. As a starter we had the... More

Yes, the view is great. The location looks lovely, the garden is beautiful. The food is absolutely not bad either, with calamari on point and roasted duck crispy and tender. However, the prices are just too high. It doesn't weigh up against the flavors. Our meal was three times as expensive as other meals, and not three times as good.
