Great Italian dinner in CHina

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... read more

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 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

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!
