Expensive for what you get.

We found this restaurant pricey for what you get. The food had some flavour but not in the same amount as most other dishes we have had. The service was ok, prompt to begin with but slow for drinks and the bill.

The food here was nothing like what I expected in Vietnam ... I would not rate this Resturant at all .... You don't have much choice in this city for good food ....

Good view and food. You can have your dinner at the pier appreciating the river and boats. The price and service are ok. After eating you can walk through the market.

Excellent ambience along the riverfront, wide choice of Vietnamese and Western Cuisine. Super fast and friendly service, delicious food and colourful drinks. Great Value for Money .we paid less than $50 for a 3 course meal for three, with mocktails.

What put us off where how many staff there seemed to be all watching us and waiting for us to need something. There were few diners here although it was lunchtime, and we were all conscious of eyes following... More

Dear Jo, Thanks for the heads-up. I'll pass the word to the team. It sometimes takes a bit of tuning to get the attention of the team to the right level: sometimes not enough, and as You say, sometimes too much. At the beginning of the rainy season, which is also our low season as you saw, we also have... More

Mekong river specialities in the river side market hall, overlooking the river and it's activity. Watch the local fisherman, river feries, boat traffic and enjoy the varied cuisine in an attractive dining area. The staff was very helpful and the food was well prepared.

While travelling on the Mekong from Vietnam and Cambodia this was one of many restaurants we ate at. As a vegetarian and hungry travelers we were well catered for.

We chose this restaurant for our evening meal (party of 5) after spending the afternoon in Can Tho sightseeing. The location of the restaurant is perfect - overlooking the water and the busy river. Waiters were polite, efficient and helpful. The food on this occasion was of a high standard, tasty and beautifully prepared. Would recommend !
