Luna has a promotion daily for drinks 'Buy 1 Free 1' from 4.00PM till 6.30PM. We were quite interested in it since we wanted to have some drinks before going out to Yangshuo town for dinner via the free shuttle at 5.45PM and wanted to take some photo shots of the Moon Hill from the rooftop as well.

Dear Sir, Thank you for your feedback. You mentioned how nice our service was then gave our service three stars, which makes us question the validity of your entire review. We use a variety of local organic apples for our juice and pies which may not have the same color as you're used to, we're sorry you were offended by... More

We were staying at the Village Inn and after a long day of hiking didn't want to look further than our own hotel for dinner but living in Italy, we didn't come to China to eat Italian food. Their Chinese dishes were excellent and the staff here is wonderful and speak English quite well. The view from the terrace is... More

During our trip through parts of China we tried to break up the amount of MSG we had by not having Chinese food every meal, as much as we love different styles of food and the regional difference we found a lot of places still use MSG in everything. This place was the break we needed in the Yangshuo region.... More

Great menu and dishes. Outdoor location gives you a nice feel for local area and plenty of locals eating here so you know it is good. Bonus - very cold beer!

The terrace is perfect for getting a good view of Moon Hill and the surrounding area. Friendly staff, good pizza (for China, anyway), good pumpkin soup. They have a shuttle 2x/day to/from Yangshuo.

The view of the area was lovely from this rooftop restaurant. It's a good place to drink wine and relax but the Italian food was really terrible. I wish I could say differently but I can't. The fried calamari was rubbery and inedible. The pasta dishes, even the simplest, was uninspired and edible but not very tasty going down. Come... More

The restaurant roof too terrace offers a stunning views on the hills. The western food is correct and we tried fried eggplant with mince pork Chinese style. All were good (not extraordinary) but it is just a pleasure to be able to find a nice restaurant after climbing the 800 stairs to the top of the moon Hill. Tips: The... More

The Luna restaurant doesn't have a huge menu, but it does have REALLY decent Western food, for reasonable prices too. Suddenly the lure of anchovies, cheese, olives and capers, on a wafer thin crust of a pizza is just too much temptation for me... and then of course there's chocolate brownie and ice cream. Don't get me wrong: I utterly... More
