Here in Hoi An for days so ate at many of the restaurants here and whilst it isn't the cheapest it was certainly our favourite and we had the most meals here The setting with the gardens and river view is the best in town and we always had excellent food / drinks with service that was friendly , speedy...

The food was average, service was average... The view of the river is quite nice, but the restaurant is extremely expensive for Hoi An. We were quite disappointed with the food, nothing out of the ordinary at all. This restaurant is not one i would recommend, considering some of the amazing restaurants around it... Hope this helps :)

Nice restaurant and surprising courtyard as well as the facade. You'll enjoy the view on the river if you'll make a reservation. Not cheap though even though food was good!

The best thing about this restaurant is the river view. It's nice to be able to sit outside in a quiet place. The food, however, is very ordinary.

The location is great and very convenient, the building is interesting and the gardens are lovely, the service is fine. But on the two occasions I have eaten there with friends I have found the food to be very disappointing, especially for the price. It is much more expensive than many other Hoi An restaurants but the food is below... More

Loved the venue - really gorgeous. Food great. Staff ok. But as most restaurants here it all seemed a little rushed - normally fine but it cost the equiv. of AU$140! Be great for a special birthday with lots of people but otherwise there are better places to go for dinner.

My husband and I arrived at this beautiful riverside setting late afternoon, tired from walking and spending the day shopping in exceptionally hot conditions. We originally wanted a cold drink of sorts while waiting for our adult sons who were still out fitting and collecting suits from tailors in The Old Town. Well, 5 hours later they had joined us,...

If riverside alfresco dining is your style, this should be high on your list. The service was outstanding when we dropped in for lunch, with a waiter reshuffling shade umbrellas so my wife could enjoy her experience there. A little more expensive than some other restaurants in Hoi An ($80 for three sharing two entrees, two mains, rice and some... More

We happen to have a pre arrange lunch at this restaurant, not the best food we tried, but nothing wrong with it, just to early in the day for a 4 course meal at 11am. So cant really comment if its good or bad, as we didn't have time to check it out properly on our own

We ate here for dinner and had booked due to recommendations from friends. We didn't mind the higher prices as long as the food was nice but unfortunately it really was not great. One of our two appetizers was really great(Vietnamese pancake) but the other(white rose dumpling) was tiny and bland. We ordered roast duck, grilled fish and water spinach... More
