This restaurant is most noteworthy for the lovely view and ambiance outside. We had a table by the river and the colored lanterns in the trees were magical. It was warm with a fresh breeze. Service was wonderful--very friendly in the nicest way. The food was good, but not exceptional. We had the fried pork spring rolls, prawns with cashews,... More

The garden and river views don't make up for the slightly below standard food. We were served quickly and the food was only warm. I'm not sure how this could happen and although the meals were very well presented the taste was lacking.

Beautiful location, but the food was mediocre and over priced. Have a coffee in the afternoon, but skip it for dinner.

Good: -superb location(I doubt if there would be a better place for the romantic setting in Hoi An) Bad: -Superb location is only superb. Except that, anything else is average. What you pay there shall be mostly for its location.

We ate at this restaurant on 11th February 2015. We were attracted by the facade, (with candle lit gardens and an attractive riverside position). These, in our opinion are the best features of this restaurant. We had 2 x starters and 2x main courses, with 1 x local beer and 2 x vodkas to drink. The total bill for this... More

We read about this restaurant and decided to try it. The location and setting is superb. It is a little more than what we have been spending (almost double), but we thought it would be a nice treat. The service was amazing and the food was very good, although two of the dishes were tough (duck). I would definitely recommend.
