As a digital nomad this is one of those dream locations. I would be at Banyan at least 1-2 times per week, Get there at 8am and hang out until the sun goes down. The coffees are the best I've had in that area, the food is fantastic, the staff is super friendly and Gael is a great host. There... More

We were in a bar next to Le Banyan and heard the amazing singer/guitarist singing what sounded like american style country music. It drew us in! The French bar owner was there and very sociable with the crowd. There was about 15 people, mostly westerners (French, Aussies, American, Sth African). being so late at night and being that there was... More

The most beautiful spot on the beach, the food is amazing the staff are all so nice they can't do enough to help you and the owner Gail (cong) is such a nice guy. Make sure you sample the flavoured Vodka (homemade) and his own style cocktails, superb!! A must for anyone travelling to Hoi An!!

The first time we came here, we really liked it. Staff were smiley, service good, the food was ok. In addition to this, the owner was lovely offering us his paddle board and letting us know where to hire a surf board from. The second time we went though we were pretty much ignored (there was an event on), the... More

This was hands-down our favorite bar in Hoi An, and, in fact, in all of Vietnam. It was a great place to spend an afternoon/evening. The seating was incredibly comfortable, the views were exquisite, the food was delicious, the service was friendly and excellent, and the drinks were cold and strong. Basically, everything you could need or want in a... More

The French lads running Le Banyan are some of the best people in Hoi An. You go for a beer and stay for the conversation and genuine welcoming attitude. We were in the area for a few weeks and stopped by almost every three days or so. The food was of a very high quality. It was nice the way... More

We love our food & decided to eat here last night after reading all the good reviews seen on TA. We are staying at An Bang Seaside Village so a 5 minute walk away....but the food was truly average - not sure if it was an off night or not... We selected from the tapas menu - calamari over cooked,... More

An Afro-clad foreigner behind the bar kicked me out for taking a photo of him on NYE. He was rude and very unkind and verbally assaulted me for nothing. I heard it was the bar's last night in business, which is the only good thing I can say about it.

Great bar on the beach just outside Hoi An. Played pool, drank beer and some great vodka shots and have a swim to cool off. Well worth a visit
