Opposite the Waterfall hotel beside the lake. Formerly named Congee City. More rustic than slick but the food's ok and the nplace is open 'til late, which is unusual especially in this part of Guilin. It'sa useful address, I think. DW

Our guide suggested this restaurant for lunch while in Guilin. As said by other reviewers, this is a restaurant, not a boat or a cruise. And as other reviewers said, forget English here, you will be on your own... BUT, we had the luck our guide came inside with us, gave a couple of indications to the waiters, and told... More

We had a nice dinner here and tried many dishes with a group of 22. Gentle and attentive staff. We took a separate room. The food was great. Right outside is the water with lovely illuminated pagodas, walkways and happy people strolling about in the sweet evening air. Take a walk here after dinner!

I find it surprising that so many reviews here on TA erroneously are of the LI RIVER CRUISE! I believe that the Li River Cruise reviews should be posted not to this RESTAURANT but to the ATTRACTION: Li River East of Guangxi Zhuang, China. I would call the attraction the "Li River Cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo". Are reviewers confusing... More

The unusual beauty of the landscape was mesmerizing. The Yangtze River is so masculine and rugged but this river is the opposite.

The views from the boats cruising down the Li river are amazing. Very much like Ha long bay in Vietnam ( not far in distance away). Half the top level on the boat we were on was "bought" by a group of wealthy Chinese who had the crew bring there tables and chairs on deck - which caused all sorts... More

The beauty of the river and the insight to the fishing villages were remarkable. We loved the views of the mountains.

This is a great way to see the countryside, mountains, and river. The scenery is absolutely stunning and you will even get to see the inspiration for the 20RMB note. The lunch buffet is lacking so pack it on at breakfast. They will offer you drinks, souvenirs, etc. but will not pressure you into buying anything. It’s pretty crowded with... More

Easy way to get from Gwaylin to Yansho. The food was a little so so, but amazing they cook so many different dishes and provided a buffett with an open kitchen on the back of the boat.

This was my second trip down the Li river and although it was much busier than 20 years ago I enjoyed it very much, the show of impressions at the end of the boat trip is something to behold
