Beautiful setting for drinks at reasonable prices but the food was very disappointing. We ate tamarind crab, morning glory with garlic, and stuffed squid. Our high hopes were dashed as the crab was full of crushed bone with barely a mouthful of flesh and the classic simple dish of morning glory lacked taste.The squid however was delicious. Perhaps other choices... More

Perfect spot for a lazy lunch /dinner or afternoon cocktails. You won't want to go home . Food is great and service is also. Don't miss out on visiting this An Bang treasure.

The perfect spot after a swim at An Bang beach - they even have a shower and good bathroom facilities. The location is wonderful, with a view over the beach, distant islands and sunset. The staff speak good English. But the best is the food - a short menu of Vietnamese dishes, beautifully presented and very flavourful. We recommend the... More

The ultimate beach cafe. Sitting just above the beach the vista is gorgeous, cruisey atmosphere, delicious food. It doesn't get better than this place! Think comfy swabs with big lounging cushions! Great staff. Roll onto the beach for a dip. Heaven in An Bang Beach.

We were lucky enough to get a big l-shaped lounge under a bungalow overlooking the beach around 2:30pm one day and didn't leave until 8:30 that night. The dinner was very good, particularly the stuffed calamari, but some of the other dishes were fairly small portions, tasty though.The location is the real winner to make a really enjoyable day there.

We went to An Beach and stumbled apon this cafe by chance. We only ate a light lunch of spring rolls which was fantastic. The location however was one of the best beach bars I have been to. We sat on the cane lounge facing the beach. Great service and cold beers which sometimes is hard to find in Vietnam.... More

White Sail used to be on Tran Cao Van in Hoi An, and they have just reopened at An Bang (left side, about halfway down). The food at the old location was good, but they have stepped things up at their new beach side venue. Meals are elegantly presented, full of taste - spot on! The new restaurant is beautifully...

The White Sail Restaurant and Bar at An Bang Beach is a great place to relax with some drinks or a lovely meal. There is a menu with many choices. My favourites were the Mango salad with shrimps, The salt and peppered squid and the seafood curry. The restaurant has a nice outside bar and very comfortable day beds to... More

This café was at An Banh beach. The view was worth it alone. But wow, that egg plant dish, closely followed by the stiffed squid. Fantasic, then my husbands clam soup....yummmm. All top quality. We didn't go to the one in Hoi An proper, but if it is like this one, worth making the effort.

Was our go to place 2 years ago. Now it has moved to the beach, it will shake up those average eateries at An Bang. Ate there 6 times over a week. All dishes good, and some fantastic. The salt and pepper squid is right on, flash fried and then tossed a second time in sauteed chilli, lemongrass, shallot, garlic... More
