Great food, beautiful view

Very fresh, seasonal and well prepared food. We enjoyed the change in having Italian food in the China country side.

We stayed at the hotel where Luna is situated. The hotel is wonderful and Luna Cafe is atop of it. The village however is very dark at night so to make the most of it and the view, make sure you stop by for lunch. It makes for a great stop before hiking up the Moon Hill Mountain. As for... More

We stopped here for lunch during one of our bike rides. The food (Italian) was excellent. The views (rooftop) of the Moon Hill were the best around. The service was superb.

What a nice place to have dinner! The rooftop overlooking the mountains is awesome. We had salads and a few pizzas and our expectations where fairly high because of what we read here. The food was a bit disappointing. Low quality ingredients and tasteless. 2 stars maximum. The waitress was however very kind and helpful so, together with the views,... More

We were staying at The Yangshuo Mountain Retreat and went here for dinner. No views as it was dark. WE walked in, and people were sitting under blankets - we really wondered what we had walked into. But it was not cold, the service was great (one of the very few restaurants in China where all 6 meals arrived at... More

We cam here for lunch after climbing to the top of Moon Hill. Located in Moon Village the restaurant is on the roof top. We had salad, pizza, and baked ziti which was all very good. Recommended.

It's a rooftop Italian restaurant on top of the village in near Moon Hill. The views are quite good; the food is more authentic than most of the Western restaurants in Yangshuo, and was good but not outstanding.

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
