Great food, very expensive for the area.

I ate here with a friend for lunch. We had a great greeting, walking us through the garden area to the seats under a parasol. Cold towels which were great as we had cycled there on a hot afternoon! Me and my friend had the chicken curry and the sweet and sour king prawns and no complaints with the... read more

Had dinner here on fist night in Hoi An. Lovely old building and food ok . It was incredibly quiet when we were there so lacked some atmosphere as got impression that staff were waiting for us to leave so they could shut up. Worth a visit though.

We were treated to our visit due a travel agent error in our booking so I hope I review with open eyes. The food here in unbelievable. The beef was cooked to perfection and the king prawns were amazing. All we had to pay for was the drinks but I felt these were very expensive even considering the setting. I'm... More

Great food. Lovely setting but seriously over priced. You are paying for quite setting and for being away from hustle and bustle. It was nice and I enjoyed it but wouldn't return

I knew immediately they took me on a long hike from the front door and through an ornamental garden down to the riverside that this was not going to be a cheap experience. I was dining alone and put at a table out of harm's way looking out over dusk on the Thu Bon River and the gentle sounds of... More

We stopped here for lunch. The outside terrace is placed between the beautiful garden and riverbank. So there is a charming view, where you sit outside. We chose the set menu. The staff changed items which were seafood related on the menu for me, with ease. Staff were friendly and attentive. The ambience was perfect for a wonderful lunch. I... More

Fantastic set menu by the river. Beautiful surroundings and ambiance. We were only diners there and eat to the sound of frogs barking.

Well what can we say.....awful...awful...awful. clay pot pork and beef with ginger and onion were not acceptable at $260000 vnd... More

Remarkable views across the river, lit by lanterns after sunset, landscaped gardens at rear, arguably a romantic setting. The menu is Vietnamese - no spag bol for tired tourists here - and the staff very friendly. The service is not snappy - heaven knows how long one has to wait if the place is fully booked. But we were very... More
