My favourite in Hoi An.A beautiful house and exquisite gardens situated on the river. The food and atmosphere was great. Very romantic in the evening with the lanterns but just as beautiful during the day. We had two courses and a bottle of wine $70 Aus. The wine being half of that.

We had a three course dinner here on our last night in Hoi An and what a way to finish our time there. We had their crab which was beautiful cooked and seasoned. We were struggling to get all the meat from the crab so our beautiful waitress offered to help and proceeded to crack the crab and get every... More

Lovely setting right on the water with beautiful gardens and ponds . The staff were attentive, plenty of place to sit with umbrellas and a breeze off the water . Food was nice but expensive for Vietnam .

Probably the nicest restaurant in Hoi An, excellent service, good food, nice atmosphere. We arrived at 8, which is obviously very late for them, and were the last there, but we never felt rushed or hassled.

The very pleasant location and ambiance of this restaurant offsets the fairly mediocre cuisine and rather high prices. Set in tropical gardens overlooking the river I can't think of a nicer place to re-group from the hustle and bustle of Hoi An.

This restaurant has a perfect location on the riverside, with outdoor tables set amongst pools and lush gardens illuminated by candles and oil burners. The service was attentive and helpful with waitresses showing us the optimum way to make and handle a Vietnamese pancake wrapped in rice paper. We each had great margaritas, pancakes, the best curries we encountered in... More

Hoi An has some fabulous restaurants and here is another. However, it may be overlooked due to its location away from the main tourist area but I would suggest it is worth making the effort to visit. The atmosphere and ambiance is relaxed and romantic, with views over the river, surrounded by colourful lanterns. The menu and food are fantastic... More

Was a really nice location overlooking the river. But was the most expensive place we went to and they charge you 15% extra due to surcharges they don't tell you about. This was the only restaurant we got these charges at. Food was average.

Booked to sit in the area overlooking the river but were put on our own initially. They eventually got us a seat. Food good but not the best in town. Wine very expensive. Romantic setting but could do better on service
