We were recommended this restaurant by our tour guide and we enjoyed our evening sitting outside watching the river action. There is an excellent menu. We had shrimp soup with egg, fried frogs' legs sautéed in butter and sautéed noodles with seafood. Our waiter was excellent and remembered our food and drinks' order without taking any notes. He was happy... More

My friends and I were surprised to end up in this restaurant. It was because the meal was inclusive in the tour. The food was typical Vietnamese which we we liked. There 7 dishes of food being served and the 4 of us finished everything on the table. The dinner ended with a bottle of Vietnamese beer each!

We had the vegetarian menue which was far beyond expectations. Other food might be better. Sorry for not giving a good rating

Dear Phil, I am sorry you did not elaborate: giving us any marks is OK as long as you let us know what we could have done better. We can't please everyone indeed, and with the advent of the high season, we are bound to be a bit busy, which harms the resfulness of any place. I hope you found... More

3of us ate here tonight. We were seated on the jetty watching the boats go by. We started with fresh spring rolls then we shared a seafood hotpot. Lots of fish prawns and squid not to mention the fresh veges. A great experience. We finished with flambé bananas and vanilla ice cream. Wonderful! The wine also added to the ambiance.... More

It is a good place to have a good diner and not expansive. The menu is variable and you can find West or East food. Service was good. For a local restaurant it is recomanded

We eat here as art of a mercury direct tour of vietnam and an overnight stay in can tho. A really atmospheric place right on the river bank to boot. Food and general ambience was lovely. All in all not a bad word to say about the place one of the best restaurants we ate in during the whole tour.

We visited this restaurant for dinner. It is located on the riverside. They served us different dishes (veggies, rice, meat, fish, spring rolls). For me special vegetarian dishes. Food tasted very good! Staff is very kind and helpful. They don't speak English very well but they try hard. I would definitely go there again to have some nice Vietnamese food!

After reading reviews we were a little sceptical but the vietnamese food is very fresh and good. Our kids had a pizza but was basic (from the freezer). Menu nr 1 was very good (very good soup, fish and beef). Recommand this place!
