Description: This new restaurant is situated close to the Cam Nam bridge and has river views from the outside terrace. The food is delicious and quite reasonably priced. It looks expensive but isn't, so don't be afraid to venture in. The family who run the place are very friendly and the beer is icy cold. A silver jewellery store also operated by family members has a display in the foyer and is very much worth checking out. I can thoroughly recommend this restaurant and I wish them very well in the future. Western food is also on the menu, although I seriously suggest you try both the Soft Shell Crab and the beef La Lot...delicious!

I have been going often to Viet Lac restaurant these days, and the food there is just amazing! Chef Scott created an elegant menu, Western food orientated, which will blow your mind. I personally LOVED the pulled pork burger and finger chicken. The poached eggs are also delicious, and it makes a great breakfast to start a long day. I... More

Excellent food. Pricier than most restaurants in Hoi An, but still considerabally cheaper than uk/eu/us. Burgers are amazing!!! About £3/$4. But so so good. Would definitely recommend!!

Its run by one family and has that feel to it. Can highly recommend it as its out of the noisy area of... More

We visited this restaurant last night and will certainly be dining there again before we leave Hoi An. It is at the back of the silver shop, Lac Viet (which is a must if you are thinking of buying silver in Vietnam - absolutely brilliant - I have had many pieces made on recent visits to Hoi An and I...

I stumbled upon this great little place one lunch time, I sat out the back on the riverfront in a cool breeze and had there smoked chicken bagette - it was delicious !! I loved it so much I went back again a few days later. It looks new and the kitchen is open and amazingly clean.

This new restaurant in Hoi An is worth seeking out. Situated right in the old town, it has a terrace facing the river and serves excellent Vietnamese food, including a stand-out soft shell crab. I dined here on 3 separate occasions and was always treated as an honoured guest - one evening I was invited into the kitchen to watch... More
